It was a great turnout in Bristol on Tuesday as some of the biggest names in basketball joined to help the cause known as the Camo Kids. It's a program begun by New York Knicks executive Jeff Nix, who has lived in Michiana for the past 20 years. He and his business partner, Ray Stults, have undertaken a program to help military families while their loved ones are deployed.
Tickets are purchased for college games all over the country so that children of military personnel can enjoy the gameday experience. Each June, Nix and Stults invite hundreds to the Stults family home in Bristol for a gathering.
Among those in attendance on Tuesday were coaches from Notre Dame, Indiana, Purdue and Bethel. The ACC was represented by Wake Forest and Duke while Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo (who has made two trips to Iraq) said he wouldn't miss the event for anything.
