Youth in Sports Night
PG Valor will be hosting: MD Select First Responders
Normally we would be honoring 5 Community Partners on this night who are working to improve the quality of life. They would have received an A.S.A.P. Award which is the America Solves America's Problems Award. But for this game we want to bring awareness to our concern about the continuous and unfortunate senseless gun violence that is occurring in our community. We will be honoring youth athletes who are no longer with us as a result of senseless violence.
Special halftime performance by: Studio Blaq Royalty and the Bowie Boys and Girls Club Cheerleaders.
Head Coach: Danilo "JR" Pinnock, Jr. (Learn more about Coach Pinnock by clicking here)

About the ABA: The ABA is a men’s professional basketball league. The original ABA was formed in 1967. In 1976, four ABA franchises merged into the NBA: the Indiana Pacers, Denver Nuggets, New Jersey Nets and San Antonio Spurs. The lead attorney for the ABA during the merger was Dick Tinkham, who was a co-founder of the Indiana Pacers and the commissioner of the ABA. Opposing counsel was David Stern, who later became the commissioner of the NBA. In partnership with the NBA, the ABA was reformed in 2000.
Today, the ABA has over 100 teams and 1,500 players who are former NBA players, Division 1 and 2 NCAA players, McDonald’s All-Americans, and international players. The ABA has introduced the ABA Gold, a new league that showcases the ABA’s best players
