Meet Jalen and Shirelle – Young Athletes with Big Dreams

I’m Tony Brothers, NBA referee and An Achievable Dream board member. I am helping AAD raise $10,000 through Give Local 757 on May 8 to send AAD students to camps this summer.

I am calling on YOU to join our Dream Team!

Going to camp this summer will help superstar student athletes Shirelle, Jalen, and other Dreamers like them gain access to experiences and opportunities that will prepare them for the future.

I am so impressed with Shirelle and Jalen. Just take a look at what they’ve accomplished so far…

Shirelle Linzy

  • 3.0 GPA
  • Plans to attend Longwood University
  • Plays tennis, track, dance
  • Hopes to attend Hampton University Tennis Camp this summer




Jalen Jordan

  • 2.87 GPA
  • Plans to attend Virginia State University
  • Plays tennis and football
  • Benefited from experience provided by football camps





Spending time with Jalen and Shirelle reminds me that An Achievable Dream is truly changing lives. I can’t wait to share more about these two remarkable students in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

Mark your calendar for May 8 and join me in helping make dreams come true!
