Aaron Ross Charity Basketball Game

Friday evening Aaron Ross, cornerback for the New York Giants,  and BTL Sports hosted a charity celebrity basketball game featuring NFL players and George Hill of the Spurs playing against a team from the San Antonio Fire Department.  The game was played in the Alamo Stadium gymnasium.  The basketball game was part of Aaron Ross’ 2nd annual Bring It Home Charity Celebrity Weekend.  Other events included a youth football camp, a girls’ cheerleading clinic, a community fair and a benefit dinner.   Funds raised will benefit the Davis Scott YMCA, Sanya Fast Track Program, San Antonio Kids Exchange, the Boys and Girls Club of San Antonio, and Champions of Valor.

Aaron Ross was born in San Antonio and played football one year at Fox Tech before he moved to Tyler.  He went on to play football for the University of Texas at Austin and was drafted by the Giants in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft.   Joining Ross at the game was his wife Sanya Richards, the world’s top-ranked female 400m runner.  Richards also graduated from UT-Austin in 2006.   

Below are some pictures from the basketball game.  NFL players participating included Sergio Kindle and Earl Thomas, drafted by the Seahawks and Ravens respectively in the 2010 NFL draft.  The game was very close and ended in regulation with a tie.  During overtime the celebrity team pulled ahead.
