Looking for leaders doing for others like MLK
Martin Luther King Day is just around the corner.
In honor of this holiday, I am looking to shine the light on a community hero who may be largely unknown to the world.
There is a quote attributed to Dr. King — “What are you doing for others?” — and I am looking to share the story of someone sports-related in the Oklahoma City metro area who is doing for others in our black community.
Men like Leotis Robinson and Varryl Franklin initially spring to mind. I’ve written about both of these men in the past few years. Robinson was the former legendary football coach at Millwood High School who died a couple years ago, and Franklin is the current legendary basketball coach at Millwood. Both are coaches by profession but builders of young men at heart. They live to do for others.
There are others like them.
But I need your help finding them.
If you know of someone, they don’t have to be involved in high school sports. Perhaps there’s someone you know who’s involved in youth sports or middle school sports. As long as they’re doing for others in the black community and doing it through sports, I want to know about them.
You can comment on my blog or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to include a phone number where I can contact you.
