The "old timers" proudly came out today to the Glass Recreation Center, for their first annual Old Timer's Basketball games, sponsored by the Tyler Chapter of CHUMS. KLTV's own Maya Golden played today, and she led her team to a close victory.
Today's events were organized by Greta Moore-Dixon, and hopefully, it's just the start of something big.
"We thought about an all-timers dance," Tyler CHUMS President Berdine Craddock said. "We'll try and do this basketball game annually. It's a fundraiser for us, so we can continue our programs in the city."
Money raised today goes to the CHUMS charity projects, including their "Kidz4Kidz" program.

Our Red Zone Rundown continues with the other two Class 6A programs in East Texas. In District 11-6A with John Tyler and Tyler Lee, who we featured Monday night, Longview figures to challenge for the league title in 2017. In fact, the Lobos and Lions shared the district championship a year ago. It's no secret, Longview is used to winning and it does so by running the football and playing sound defense.More >>
