Reggie Wayne hosts charity basketball game

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Colt star wideout Reggie Wayne has made Indianapolis his home, and not only at Lucas Oil Stadium, but his annual 'Saving our Youth" charity basketball game at the Summer Celebration is a good example of giving back.

His celebrity turnout certainly backs it up. Wayne was joined by a handful of his Colts’ teammates like T.Y. Hilton, Antoine Bethea and Vick Ballard. 

Pacers’ Roy Hibbert and Lance Stephenson as well as NBA Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins were also on hand to help out as coaches. 

"For me, it's about going out there, run up and down the court, get a little sweat going. This is always my introduction to camp,” said Wayne. “I just like to go out there and watch everybody else live their hoop dreams.”

In the end, Wayne’s team won by over 20, but he says the real winners are the youth. 

“Seeing everybody smile, have fun, laugh, that's what it's about,” said Wayne. “Seeing those young kids look at us, people they idolize on TV every day, just seeing them smile when they ask for autographs."

"It's a great weekend, especially an event to raise money for our youth,” said Bethea. “That's the most important thing is doing things for our future.”
