Role Models stop by the Wade Center

Bluefield (WVVA) - The Bluefield High School Basketball team spent Wednesday with children at the Wade Center in Bluefield.

"We got some of the basketball players to come out here to help these kids just get better on their basketball skills and educate them about staying in school," said Lykel Collier, a member of the Bluefield basketball team.

Children were able to eat lunch with the players and ask them questions about life and basketball.

Hitting the court, children were taught how to dribble, shoot and other basic basketball concepts.

Teammates say focusing on school is the most important thing one can do. "My parents always told me to do well in school because basketball may not always work out," Collier said.

The Team says they take pride in being role models for children in the Bluefield community.
