From Our Supporters

“The ABA gave me the contacts I needed to land a full ride scholarship to play ball and leave with a degree. Without this, I’d be loaded up with student debt, and probably not have been able to even go. Thank you, I’ll forever be a supporter.”

“When I had a promising student that had no prospect of getting into college, the ABA helped work out the best path; and got him looked at. It went well, and he’s now a starting player in Denver. Thank God for the ABA.
