While in Ohio last week, Nike invited our group to LeBron James‘ high school in Akron for a special event that had me grinning ear-to-ear. Check out my walk-through of St. V-M and a little extra after the jump.
Upon walking into the school, we were greeted with a large trophy case. As you can tell, they take their athletics very seriously at St.V-M.
This plaque of King James is displayed prominently in the trophy case.
Upon walking into the gym’s locker room, I was greeted with my own locker, jersey, and Air Max LeBron VII’s. Nike does it right!
Coach Dru Joyce II came into the locker room and instructed us to suit-up and meet him on the court for some drills and pick-up games with LeBron himself. Unfortunately, I wasn’t allowed to bring my camera onto the court at the time. So, sorry… I don’t have any photos of LeBron dunking on me…
These core values are mounted on the wall in the locker room.
State Champ banners, including the one LeBron and his teammates won in 2003.
Retired jersey numbers hang in the gym.
