When KPTV 12 sportscaster Nick Krupke heard about the Plaza Park Boys, he knew it was a story the he wanted to share.Check out the video that ran on the Portland Fox affiliate on March 26 and 27.
Last month we let you know about the team from the Plaza Townhomes apartments. When Volunteers of America learned that resident Dawitt wanted to start a basketball team with his friends, they contacted Off the Sideline, and we provided scholarships for the entire team. The team members, who are in grades 6 through 9 and attend different schools, have practiced hard over the last few months. Through their focus and hard work, the team went on to take first place in the 9th/10th grade division for Portland Parks and Recreation's Goldenball Basketball League.
Help us reach our goal of awarding 160 youth sports scholarships in 2017!
