Nine young men from Cleveland area rec centers competed for the championship. Daniel Williams won the championship, with Husain Foster coming in 2nd, and Anthony Simmons 3rd. Each of the 3 winners received a trophy and commemorative Cleveland Police Foundation basketball. A big thanks to our 3 judges, Councilman Ken Johnson, Recreation Commissioner Sam Gissentaner, and ex-pro basketball player Chet Mason. Thanks also goes out to Garnet Jamison and P.O. Sam Anderson. This was a great opportunity for these young men to show off their skills and for these officers to get to know our youth.11898813_512094198955817_3434479136770368114_n
