Kenny Lofton Visits the Academy!

Kenny Lofton visited the Urban Youth Academy on Sunday, March 15th, 2009 to talk to our kids about baseball, life, and education. 

Mr. Lofton, a graduate of the University of Arizona, truly represents what it means to be a student athlete.  Mr. Lofton never lost sight of what it meant to graduate college and made sure that no matter happened, he finished his degree.  That was the message he imparted to all the young baseball and softball players that were in attendance.  He also talked baseball shop, giving pointers and tips on baseball stealing, hitting, and how to approach big games.
