Taking a break from basketball, Scott’s All-Stars still had a busy weekend. Players performed their monthly community service Saturday at Kirk’s Healing Center.

The center is an organization that provides a live-in, safe environment for homeless men and women in Liberty County.

"Our young men assisted the organization with their second annual charity jail fundraiser to benefit the homeless," Marcus Scott said. "The boys performed various tasks, including standing by the road trying to get cars to come to the center, helping move items for the organization and helping with parking."

Scott said the players then went to the YMCA, where they studied for the Criterion Reference Competency Test (CRCT). The test review was conducted by the Scott’s All-Stars’ coaching staff and high school players.

"Students were broken into their perspective grade levels and worked in collaborative groups," Scott said. "Last year, we had twelve students and all of our students passed every part of the CRCT, while maintaining an 87 team GPA. This year, we expect the same results or better with over 30 of our students testing this week and next week."
