“What I am trying to do with this program is to get these kids the exposure that they deserve,” Dansby said. “They sacrifice a lot from an early age. Some kids start playing sports at four, five, or six years old. But because of particular geographic or economic limitations within certain school districts, these athletes simply don’t get an opportunity to get that look or get viewed by some colleges that are out there. They miss out on opportunities to further their education, as well as their aspirations of playing the sport they love in college." - Karlos Dansby
