Darius Miller Gives Back

 

Prepare your heart to melt after you see the below picture…

This post comes to us via Ally Tucker, the Editor of KSRCollege.com

 

Darius Miller, fresh off winning a national championship, found time in his day to visit the UK Children’s Hospital yesterday. Darius spent time visiting with the children, while also signing various things for the children and their families.

 

It’s always neat to see players giving back, but even more special when they give back to the kids. John Calipari spent the last two days on the road, literally covering a thousand miles in the state of Kentucky, just to provide little moments of joy for other people. He didn’t have to do that, but he did. Darius Miller gave little moments of joy to a lot of children yesterday. He didn’t have to do that either, but he did. Again, it’s great to see our players giving back to the community.

    Anybody who thinks that John Calipari limits his coaching talents to the basketball team clearly isn’t paying attention. He’s coaching the BBN how to win with class and how to live a good life.

    Wow Darius is just proving what we already thought, that he really is a stand up guy as well as a tremendous (National Champion) basketball player. I can’t wait to see him play at the next level!

    Aww. I got to meet him in Atlanta during the Regionals. A gentle giant, sweet as can be and shy, as we all know.

    Mr. and Mrs. Miller sure raised a fine young man. He has what CM Newton once called “tangible class” – which is what the University of Kentucky should always aspire to.

    Wildcat for life. This year’s group is one of the best to ever wear the uniform – from all aspects.

    I’ve been a Darius supporter through thick and thin. He has been through a lot over the last 4 years and never once made excuses or complained. As others have said, he is a class act, good kid, outstanding basketball player, national champion, and a wildcat for life!
