All cheered when his name blared through the gymnasium speakers, “The Man in the Middle, Number 44, Matthew Tall Small!” Matthew Small, who is part of Living Resources’ After School Program, has shown a passion for basketball for many years. Throughout his High School years, Matthew’s 6’6 ½” frame could be seen running down the court and dunking baskets as part of the Mohonasen Warriors Unified Basketball team.

His raw ability and amazing sportsmanship both on and off the court earned him a spot as a co-captain during his senior year. Matthew helped his team win their playoff game against Schenectady High School with a score of 61-45, earning the title of division champs for the third time in a row.

We thank our After School Program staff members Kathleen DeMarco and Princetta Jordan, as well as Community Living Coordinator Jacqueline Calder for their support of Matthew’s Hoop Dreams throughout the years.

Congratulations Matthew! We know you will continue to impact this world in a positive way as you begin your new adventures post-High School.
