Gentry received an invitation he could not decline, a chance to connect with young athletes involved in Hoops for Purpose non-profit organization, located in greater Dallas, TX. Hoops for Purpose is dedicated to transforming the lives of youth, using basketball as a medium in order to teach life skills. Following the address Gentry was able to stick around and connect with the young athletes as they shared their scholastic and career goals.
Hoops for Purpose provides more than just a recreational league basketball experience. During the 10 week basketball season the kids will have a curriculum that consists of classes regarding leadership, education, hygiene, table etiquette and fitness. We currently have a total of 60 kids which consist of boys and girls between the ages of 5 to 10.
