You're probably thinking you've heard this story before. A kid overcomes all the odds being against him to realize his dreams. But in Randy Foye's case, there is a little more to the story.
Randy grew up in Newark, New Jersey - which if you've never visited, is one of the toughest urban environments in the entire country. Even worse, he lost both of his parents by the tender age of 6. Considering that, you wouldn't have bet on Randy to make it to where he is today.
Throughout his 4 years at Villanova University, he gave us plenty to cheer about on the court, leading our beloved Wildcats back to national prominence and taking home the 2006 Big East Player of the Year Award. For all he has done on the hardwood though, he's done even more off it.
"Starting this foundation was a goal of mine for a long time. It is very personal to me and very important to give back. If even just one child's life changes from what we've done, then I'll know we were successful."
The more I hear about what Randy is doing through his foundation, the prouder I am to be a Villanova Wildcat alongside him. Throw those V's up for Randy!
