The team visited the Joe Clair Morning Show to let the DMV know how they can help. Read a blurb about the boys' journey below:

As you can imagine, these dedicated young student athletes are already winners in our eyes and we are trying to do something BIG here for a GREAT cause. Our boys have come together from different backgrounds and financial classes;  some are facing larger obstacles than others such as single parent households, low-income based families and neglect as they have not had the fortune until now of interacting with people who see them in the positive light that our DMV-Knights coaching staff sees them. Despite their different backgrounds, we (as a TEAM; ie. the boys; the coaches; our team moms and the parents!)—We have created what we has grown to be a true ‘brotherhood’ amongst these young boys; and a safe-haven and positive environment for them to build up each and every last one of their confidence and self-esteem.
