(WOLFFORTH, TX) - The boys who play basketball at Frenship are doing more than just shooting hoops.

For the past four years, the Tigers have been using their talents for a good cause.

"It feels good that we can give back to the community and make a difference in kids' lives who aren't as fortunate enough as we are," Hunter Hays said.

Players like Hays participated in Frenship High's annual Shoot-A-Thon.

Each guy solicits sponsors and donations to support each free throw they make, out of 30.

"Every year we say ten percent, but we normally try to give a little bit more," Frenship Head Basketball Coach, Jason Dear, said.

This time, the team presented Make-A-Wish with a $500 check.

"It just shows the integrity of coach; how he instills us to care about more than just basketball," said Hayes.

"You can always give a dream to somebody. I know that it's not a lot of money, but any bit that we can give to help," Coach Dear added.
