As the Edison Tommies geared up for their game against the Humboldt Hawks, they were not expecting the surprise that was waiting for them past the locker room doors.
Xavier Rhodes teamed up with InSports to surprise the Tommie's as a guest coach at their Friday night game and a $1,000 team scholarship! After being shown continuous support for his annual toy drive, Rhodes was impressed with this groups dedication to give back to the community and wanted to give back in a unique way!
We want to give a big thank you to the Edison Coaches and Teams for welcoming InSports to the Tommie family for the night!
