WASHINGTON - Georgetown University men's basketball players Mikael Hopkins (Hyattsville, Md./DeMatha) and Jabril Trawick(Philadelphia, Pa./Abington Friends) remembered being in the same seats of the middle school students they were speaking to one morning recently.
They remembered the feeling that kids get sometimes, when they feel everyone may be picking on them or the excitement when they had to go to the auditorium to hear someone speak. Except this time, Hopkins and Trawick - along with Georgetown Head Men's Basketball Coach John Thompson III and some teammates - were the ones speaking to the kids.
The Hoyas took some time recently to visit with students at Hart Middle School in Southeast D.C. as part of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) "Stay in to Win" program, which targets middle school and high school students, focusing on student success and dropout prevention.
