ARDR Allies President, Laurent Muvunyi, received an opportunity to take his son Grant to a University of Dayton Basketball game on Saturday, December 5th. Since this would be Grant's first experience to attend a college game, Laurent took him to Flyer Spirit on Brown Street and purchased a Dayton Flyer sweatshirt to wear to the game. After all, he was going to be the Flyers' newest "6th Man" and had to look the part. Grant was so excited during the week prior to the game that he posted his best school performance year-to-date which was a pleasant surprise to mom and dad.
Grant, who is six and in the first grade, was mesmerized by the UD Arena, the Flyer Faithful and the excitement of college basketball. And to make things even more special he had his picture taken with Santa Claus at the game. Grant sat on the edge of his seat intently watching the game while soaking up an experience that he will not soon forget. But who knows, some day, in the not to distant future, we may all be on the edge of our seats watching Grant knock down 3's at UD Arena.
