LOS ANGELES — Allan Guei, a high school basketball star from Compton has decided to donate the $40,000 dollar prize he won in a free-throw contest to the contestants he beat. Rivals High School reports:
Guei, a star player on the basketball team who is headed to Cal-State Northridge on a full scholarship, said he felt the others could use the college cash more than he could. He wanted to give his classmates a chance to make their academic dreams come true, too.
“I’ve already been blessed so much and I know we’re living with a bad economy, so I know this money can really help my classmates,” he said in a release from the school. “It was the right decision.”
