Dream Day “Humbling” For Morris

June 6th, 2009

Raheem The Dream already was a pretty humble guy. High-energy, yes, but surely not an arrogant young man.

Yesterday, his hometown high school in Irvington, New Jersey, hardly an affluent school district, honored him with Raheem Morris Day. The event help kick start a fundraising drive to get the school a renovated field, reported the Newark Star Ledger.

Morris said he is proud the community honored his achievements, but also grateful for the fact those around him will not let him forget his upbringing in Irvington. Things like Raheem Morris Day are just new perks.

“You have to adjust,” Morris said. “And that’s what I’m doing every day I’m coaching. Even right now, adjusting to Raheem Morris Day is not the same. I’m used to coming in here, saying, ‘What’s up?’ and keep moving. But to come in and have family and friends clap for you, it’s a humbling experience. I can’t say enough about it.”

It was reported The Dream donated $10,000 to the school’s fundraising effort.

Nice job, Dream.
