Ex-Wildcats Rondo and Anderson to Speak at High School

Former Kentucky standouts Derek Anderson and Rajon Rondo will speak at R. A. Hubbard High School (Ala.) on Saturday, August 21.

The former Cats will be present to help students kick off their school year.

Here is an excerpt from The Moulton Advertiser:

R.A. Hubbard students will kick off their school year taking advice from some well-known basketball players. NBA players Derek Anderson and Rajon Rondo will speak at Hubbard High School’s gymnasium Saturday, Aug. 21, at 4 p.m.

Anderson and Rondo’s path to Courtland started in Louisville, Ky., where they both were promising young basketball players. Both players eventually went on to have successful careers at the University of Kentucky, but it almost didn’t happen for the once troubled teenagers.

William White, brother of North Courtland Mayor Ronald Jones and Hubbard Principal Thomas Jones, coached in the Louisville area for more than four decades. White mentored hundreds of young athletes during that time, including Anderson and Rondo.
