Books-4-Baskets rewards students’ good reading habits

In response to team owner Ron Sholes’ request that each GIANTS player become actively involved in the community, the team has responded with 100% participation.   Erin Ocobock, team participation coordinator, commented, “The Giants have responded to Mr. Sholes request in such a way that the Jacksonville community should be proud.”
During their first season (2010-11), the GIANTS players made over 20 personal appearances in the community.   Their message stresses staying in school, working hard for what you get, and the ABA national message of NO BULLYING.
