Tyrese Hailurton Surprises Attucks with New Nike Gear

Practice was tough, but worth it at the end as our Crispus Attucks boys basketball players were in for a massive surprise Thursday evening.

As Coach Hawkins was making a final address to his team, a familiar faced walked through the gym doors, sending the place into a state of shock.

Indiana Pacers Guard & NBA All-Star Tyrese Hailburton had walked in & was making his way to the team. The shock turned into excitement as the star player introduced himself.

What happened next was pure euphoria for our team as he announced the real reason for his appearance.

As part of a partnership between Dick’s Sporting Goods & Nike, Hailburton told the team they would be receiving all new Nike apparel. Shoes, bottoms, tops, & a backup was handed to each player as they excitedly opened every item.

They then took a group photo & jersey swap with Hailburton as they talked with the star that many of them look up to.

A big thank you to Nike, Dick’s, & Tyrese for making our students-athletes day!
