In early November, 6th grade had the opportunity to meet Virginia Tech basketball standout Darius Maddox via Zoom. Hailing from Bowie, MD, Darrius played in every Tech game last season and secured the win over Clemson in the second round of the ACC Tournament, thanks to this incredible 3-point shot.
Darrius talked about growing up in DC, learning to balance his passion for basketball with academics, and the importance of organization, time management, and working hard on things that may not come easy. Gabi B. '23 then joined the conversation, talking about being a senior student-athlete and finding a balance among school and sports. Thank you to Brian for arranging this opportunity!
