Scott Brazda of KATC spoke with organizer Brian Jolivette about how the tournament’s mission is to give back.
He and other organizers hope the tournament will continue to grow.
“This tournament isn’t just in the Gulf States or the south,” said gymnasium director Corey Dixon. “So this tournament is over. It is growing to a huge level and that is something that we want to keep doing to move forward. We will continue that next year as well.”
