Hey y’all, Joey Burton, shot doctor extraordinaire, could use a little help. His mother-in-law is battling breast cancer for the second time in the last 10 years. She could use a financial boost to cover some expenses related to her treatment.

I’m sure you all know Joey by now, but just to give a quick refresher, he is the Executive Director of Champions Academy, a non-profit youth basketball academy out of Indianapolis. He also does private coaching with college and pro guys. He’s helped Purdue players like Ray Davis and Carsen Edwards perfect their shooting stroke and overall basketball skill set.

He’s one of the best in the business.

He was gracious enough to come on the Off-The-Rails Podcast with Casey and I at the beginning of the summer and we hope to have him back on as we get closer to basketball season. Joey’s work with Purdue players has provided us with incredible on court dividends. Let’s throw a few dollars towards this fundraiser to help out his family going through some tough times.

You can find his website HERE.

My mom just finished up chemo for breast cancer. She had her port removed last month after over a year of incapacitating chemo. The family is asking for 10K, and I can assure you that’s not even a drop in the bucket.

Let’s blow this out of the water for Joey and his wife.
