More than a competition, the StreetBall Showdown brings basketball back to its original intent, MENTORSHIP. Our goal is to establish a solid foundation and presence in the community, mentor the youth of the city, build lasting partnerships with outreach movements and cultivate relationships with local organizations and influencers.
There will always be great basketball players who bounce that little round ball, but my proudest moments are affecting people’s lives, effecting change, being a role model in the community.
Tyner High School, located in Chattanooga, Tennessee, was built in 1907 as the first secondary school in Hamilton County east of the Missionary Ridge at the site of the current Tyner Middle Academy (Hamilton County, Tennessee). The school was moved to the current location which has had many additions and changes since 1937. Today, Tyner Academy serves around 575 students, grades 9-12, in three Career Academies and a Freshmen Academy. The mission of Tyner Academy is to challenge students, parents, and faculty to grow daily as problem solvers, productive citizens and lifelong learners. The school colors are maroon and gold and the school mascot is the ram.
