Harlem Globetrotter Visits Century Elementary

They are famous the world over and they're on their way to Grand Forks. One of the Harlem Globetrotters is here already.

The player known as "Hot Shot" visited Century Middle School Tuesday.

He talked to the students about living a healthy life, respect and responsibility.

"Hot Shot" uses some of his basketball tricks, as well as his personal life lessons to help motivate youngsters to stay in school.

He says he wants them to learn from his mistakes.

"I continue to smile through the whole thing, made the right choices, living my dream now and once it's over I hope I get the opportunity to help someone else live their dream," said Globetrotter "Hot Shot."

The Harlem Globetrotters will be at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks April 9th.
