DALLAS-Aaron Craft, a 2014 member of the AllState NABC Good Works Team, spent part of Sunday coaching Texas Special Olympians in Dallas, site of the 2014 Final Four.
Craft provided skill instruction and coached a team at the event, part of the many appearances of the Good Works Team during the Final Four weekend. Craft’s squad was victorious vs. a familiar foe in Michigan’s Jordan Morgan, also on hand as a member of the 2014 Good Works Team.
The agenda Sunday also included an autograph session and the AT&T NABC Guardians of the Game Awards Show banquet where Craft will be presented with the 2014 National Defensive Player of the Year Award.
Grant Hill, a former Duke Blue Devil and the 1993 National Defensive Player of the Year, was the keynote speaker at the Special Olympics basketball clinic.
The University of Pennsylvania’s Dau Jop, also a member of the 2014 Good Works Team, will join Craft later this month in Atlanta as a finalist for the 2014 Coach Wooden Citizen Cup. The Wooden Cup is given to a collegiate and a professional athlete who have made the greatest positive influence in the lives of others.
