This Sunday Temple will celebrate one of the finest young men to wear the Cherry and White Dionte Christmas in a very unique way – his very own bobblehead. This is the first time that Temple has honored a student-athlete with a bobblehead and Dionte is very deserving of this day.
Dionte truly encompasses what you want in a student athlete on your team. He does a good job in the classroom. He has worked as hard on his academics as he has on his basketball game. He has also done a terrific job on the basketball court and really represents Temple well. His most valued asset, however, is what he does in the community. He is a good person and the kind of individual that you want to represent your basketball program and institution. It is these three components, athleticism, academics and community service that have made him one of 10 finalists for the Senior Class Award. We are very proud of all that he has accomplished in his four years at Temple and we will have fun with this Bobblehead day.
So please, come out Sunday and join me in honoring one of the greatest individuals in Temple basketball history and support our team as we take on St. Bonaventure. The game tips off at 2:00 p.m., but be sure to arrive early as only the first 3,000 fans 14 and over get a bobblehead. Also it is Hooter’s Birthday, and will be a fun day for youngsters as many of the local mascots will be in attendance for the big day.
