Griffin Grasshoppers Attends Atlanta Hawks Eastern Division Playoff Game #5

The Griffin Grasshoppers received a special treat when the Atlanta Hawks hosted Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Division Playoff Game #5. They were selected to be the "Dream Team" and participated in the pre-game activities with the Atlanta Hawks. All of the players recieved an Atlanta Hawks Jersey, rebounded the basketball for the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics players during warm-up, created a tunnel for Hawks players during introduction and gave players "High-5", they ate unlimted popcorn and soda on a night that will be remembered for a lifetime. The Hawks defeated the Celtics in a "SOLD OUT" Philips Arena for a thriller 87-86 forcing a Game 6 in Boston. 

The Griffin Grasshoppers shared the excitement with another youth organization, the G-Force Youth Basketball out of Dekalb County. According the Griffin Grasshoppers Director, Duck Richards, "We wanted to share this moment with as many kids as possible and allow them to fulfill a dream of a lifetime." The night was truly filled with excitement as each player went home with a smile on their face and filled with joy!
