Slay named Hometown Hero

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Tamar Slay scored a lot of points and dished out a lot of assists in his oustanding basketball career, but it's his post-career good deeds getting notice.

Slay was named WSAZ Hometown Hero for conducting his annual basketball clinic in Huntington. Not only does he provide basketball insight but he also helped feed 30 of the kids after the final day of the camp, with financial help from former teammate Joda Burgess and Charleston attorney J..R. Carter.

"I let these kids know i grew up in Beckley, West Virginia," Slay said, "back to back state champions, played four years at Marshall, did the right things and was fortunate enough to get drafted into the NBA and it changed my whole life. If i was able to do it walking on to the Marshall campus homeless, i know these kids can do it too."
