Coach Dennis Felton was the featured speaker at a local fundraiser for the United Way in Walton County. He apparently fired up the volunteers and other supporters.
Community events like the one that took place last night are instrumental in creating the kind of good will that the basketball program needs. And Felton has a story to tell right along in here, with the team pulling off an Atlanta Braves-style "worst to first" run to the SEC Tournament Championship.
So it's a good fit. The Dawgs and the United Way. Small game of basketball helping out with the bigger game of life. Hopefully Coach Felton's participation will help the Walton County group reach its goal.
