Last December Oklahoma basketball player James Fraschilla put together a trick shot video with the goal of raising money to benefit Hayden’s Hope, a foundation created by ESPN analyst Dari Nowkhah and his wife Jenn to raise awareness for pediatric organ donation.
With the semester completed Fraschilla was at it again, making a second trick shot video that featured a few cameo appearances.
In addition to teammate Amath M’Baye, who was in the first video, there were also appearances from Oklahoma starting quarterback Landry Jones and kicker Eric Hosek. Also, a couple of the Gonzaga basketball players who put together their own trick shot video back in September.
It’s an entertaining video to say the least, and one put together for a great cause. The Nowkhah’s lost their son Hayden just 39 days after he was born due to a virus that damaged his heart to the point of needing a transplant he wouldn’t receive.
In his memory they established Hayden’s Hope, working with the Children’s Organ Transplant Association to raise funds to cover the expenses related to pediatric organ transplant procedures.
