Thanks to Coach Tennell for putting together another amazing Mark Giles Basketball Tournament. This tournament raises money for college scholarships to be given away at Class of 2017 Graduation in June.
Mark Giles was a founding senior editor of ESPN The Magazine, who worked to start Business of Sports School (BOSS), a public high school to prepare underserved youth for careers in the sports industry. Sadly, just as the school opened in fall of 2009, Mark was diagnosed with leukemia. He passed away in 2011, but his contribution to New York City students lives on with the achievements of BOSS students. All proceeds from this event will be awarded to BOSS graduates who exhibit academic performance and a commitment to the community consistent with Mark's vision.
