Ryan Boatright has always been very proud of his hometown, and has always taken the opportunity to be a role model for young people in East Aurora, Ill., very seriously.
He has never had a better opportunity than he does now to bring a positive message back home, and he will be honored at a program Saturday at the Paramount Theater.
Boatright told his hometown paper:
“It means the world to me to be coming home to Aurora as a national champion. This can encourage a lot of kids to pursue their own dreams.”
Boatright, like DeAndre Daniels, is weighing his options regarding the NBA Draft. One imagines he will be discussing things with his family this weekend.
