Roadrunners visit Parkview Elementary


State Fair players spend time at BGC site

State Fair men’s basketball player Ryan Surface watches as the girls’ team waits for the ball to hit the net while the boys’ team tries to block the shot Monday afternoon at the Boys & Girls Clubs of West Central Missouri Parkview Elementary Site. The players spent the afternoon with club members, playing basketball, helping with homework and other activities, plus signed autographs.


State Fair men’s basketball player Spencer Ruckman helps third-grader Darion Shinneman come up with sentences for his spelling homework during Power Hour at the Parkview Site Monday afternoon. Volunteering at area Club sites is one of several community service activities for the Roadrunners. “I enjoy it,” Ruckman said of volunteering at Parkview. “It’s fun hanging around the kids and I think they appreciate us being here, seeing college basketball players come help them.”


Roadrunners coach Kevin Thomas helps second-grader Jeremy Buchanan with a worksheet Monday afternoon. Thomas, whose son attends the Club at Skyline Elementary, said the team enjoys volunteering at Club sites. “It’s good to give back to the kids,” he said as he took a break from playing an intense game of basketball with some Club members. “I think it’s a great program. I’m familiar with the program and it’s a great thing for all the kids.”


The girls’ team tries to defend State Fair men’s basketball player Ryan Surface as he goes for a dunk during Energy In, Energy Out time Monday afternoon at the Parkview Site.


Some of the younger Club members enthusiastically cheer on each of the four Roadrunners players who visited the Parkview Site as they show off their dunking skills for the members Monday afternoon.


Roadrunners coach Kevin Thomas asks for louder cheers from Club members before he dunked the basketball himself after four of his players had done the same. Thomas said the team visited each of the area Boys & Girls Club sites last year and they are working to do that again this year.


State Fair men’s basketball player Ryan Surface talks with the girls’ team as they start passing the ball during a mini basketball game Monday afternoon. Coach Kevin Thomas played with another team on the other side of the gym.
