Flyers honor special fan during first NCAA game

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Fifteen-year-old Trevin Gray of Xenia was diagnosed with a rare connective tissue disorder known as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome at the age of eight. He was honored Wednesday during the University of Dayton Flyer’s first NCAA tournament appearance.

Trevin has been “drafted” onto the Dayton men’s basketball team through his participation in the Team IMPACT.

Established in 2011 in Boston, Team IMPACTs mission is to improve the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses through the power of teams. Team IMPACT children are drafted on to local college athletic teams and, in effect, become official members of the team from “Draft Day” through to graduation.
