The 12th Annual First Shot Sneaker Ball recently took place at the TDK Hangar at the Murfreesboro Airport. This fun-filled, inspiring event featured former MTSU standout and current Tennessee Titans Pro Bowl and All-Pro safety Kevin Byard, along with Middle Tennessee native and Notre Dame standout Golden Tate. The guys talked about their inspirations, hard work and discipline needed to succeed.

Under the direction of Coach Andy Herzer, First Shot Basketball programs enable children of all ages to participate in sports programs. The activities further equip kids with fundamental life skills through mentoring programs in a Christ centered atmosphere. First Shot holds numerous free camps and clinics for kids throughout the year where kids learn life and classroom skills, as well as basketball.
