Bucks basketball has taken the city of Milwaukee by storm this summer, but for volunteer and coach Quentin Redd, using hoops to impact the community has always been a priority.
Redd, an alum of Vincent High School, is a longtime Team Milwaukee Special Olympics and Adaptive Athletics volunteer and coach. He joined the program as a volunteer in the early 2000s to help his brother, who is an active participant with Special Olympics. Over the years, Redd has volunteered as a softball, basketball, and flag football coach. He currently volunteers as a basketball and flag football coach for Team Milwaukee and is a part-time staff member for the Unified Summer Stars basketball program.
On Tuesday morning, ABC’s “Good Morning America” honored Redd’s passion and dedication to the community with tickets to Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks.
Under the guise of a story about the Bucks’ run to the NBA Finals and its impact on Special Olympics and basketball in Milwaukee, ABC reporter Will Reeve and GMA talked to Redd, his co-workers, his family, his friends, and his Team Milwaukee Special Olympics athletes about Redd’s devotion to the program and its players. The Bucks joined the celebration with Redd’s family and friends on Tuesday to surprise him live on Good Morning America.
