Happy Dominique Hawkins Day!





This morning Dominique Hawkins added another accolade to his exceptional Senior year of high school. With a Sweet 16 MOP under his belt and a roster spot on a potentially historic UK team, the only thing left was to have his own day of the week. This morning Richmond Mayor Jim Barnes declared May 18th “Dominique Hawkins Day” in the city of Richmond.


I know most of you are excited to get out of town Memorial Day Weekend, but you should have planned your vacations around the summer’s best holiday “Dominique Hawkins Day”.

    It can’t be summer’s best holiday on May 18th. Summer doesn’t start until June 20-21, duh.
