KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Once a Vol, always a Vol. That’s the saying that stays true for most who attend UTK. One VFL returned to Knoxville to give back to the place that gave him a chance.

Admiral Schofield, a former Vol basketball player and current NBA player with the Orlando Magic is spending time in the Knoxville area to give back to the city that he loves. The Admiral Schofield Endowment Fund, a public fundraising foundation announced “The Admiral’s Club Summer Jam 2023: Homecoming”. This fundraiser is taking place in Knoxville at different locations to give the community the chance to raise money to empower youth and their families.

Schofield and his team will host a bowling night at Maple Hall on Friday, August 25th to bring the community together to raise money and have fun while doing it. On Saturday, August 26th you can head over to Webb High School from 9 am to 12 pm and enjoy basketball clinics, as well as watch a celebrity basketball game starting at 2 pm.

Giving back to Knoxville and the youth here is something that Schofield says he is very proud to do. Going to school at UTK and being able to play for the Vols showed him the true Volunteer way that he is now carrying on.
