Local Legends Shootout Aims to Help Youth

DAYTON -- Local NBA players are teaming up with old and new basketball players from Dunbar High School to suit up for charity.

Proceeds from the second annual Local Legends Shootout at Dunbar High School will go to the Daequan Cook Foundation, an organization that provides underprivileged youth with college scholarships.

NBA players such as Daequan Cook and Norris Cole are among the players who returned to their hometown for the event. Other players who participated were Chris Wright and Kenny Hayes.

"It was something I always wanted to do, being from Dunbar, being from Dayton, being a city kid ... knowing that a lot of kids look up to me and I'm a big role model. I just feel like that's one of the biggest ways I can give back," said Cook.

"To be able to give back, you know, and being at an event like this you know it's something positive and you can never do to much positive," said Norris Cole.

"Daequan has been great about doing that, he's been doing it right out of high school and now we see Norris tag teaming with him so we have a whole lot of talent coming out of the city and hopefully it will continue," said Tara Owings, whose daughter received one of the foundation's scholarships.

Organizers say this year they really wanted to put on a family-friendly event, something positive for their community.

"I'm actually touched. I didn't really think this will be as big as it is and the community is behind us and everything, so it just puts a smile on my face to be able to give back and put a smile on another kid's face," said Darran Powell, co-coordinator for the event.

The kids were the main focus of the shootout.

"It's good to show the kids that they can strive to be at that position one day. Give them something positive to look up to," said Kelvin Woods, who traveled from Cincinnati for the event.

Tickets are $5 for kids, $7 for adults. The game starts at 7 p.m. at Dunbar High School.

The Daequan Cook Foundation provides 10 $500 scholarships to students at Dunbar High School.
