The gym at Greenwood High School was at full capacity as two of Greenwood’s own returned home on Saturday for a celebrity basketball event to benefit Starz24, an organization started by former GHS star and current Carolina Panther Josh Norman. Norman was joined by fellow Greenwood native Armanti Edwards and several other Carolina Panthers for the event.

The event began with an AAU all-star exhibition game, featuring some of the Lakeland’s top prep basketball players. Some AAU players then competed in a 3-point shootout and slam dunk competition before the day’s main event – the celebrity basketball game.

Norman and Edwards were joined by Panther teammates Captain Munnerlyn, Brandon LaFell and Louis Murphy in addition to Atlanta Superproducer Daredevil.

“It’s a great opportunity for us to come support our teammate giving back to his hometown,” LaFell said prior to the game. “We were those kids ten years ago so it’s good to come out here and give back.”

“Any time somebody is doing something good for the kids in our hometown, I’m going to go do it,” said Edwards of joining his former high school teammate and current Panther teammate.

Norman also donated a pair of pink and black cleats and a pair of pink and black gloves that were raffled off at halftime of the event.

It great that they come back and support the younger adults and give back. That shows them that no matter what happens in life someone is always there to support them in life and that they can have the same in the future.
