Peyton Siva visits Boys and Girls Club

GLASGOW — Peyton Siva was in Glasgow on Monday morning to deliver the message of how important the Boys and Girls Club was for him.

Siva, a former University of Louisville basketball player and native of Seattle, Washington, grew up attending his local Boys and Girls Club. He started going there to play basketball, but found other programs that helped him in middle and high school.

"The Boys and Girls Club gave me an outlet to do better in life," he told children at the Boys and Girls Club of Glasgow-Barren County, Houchens Unit, at the club's location on Bunche Avenue.

Siva also spent time visiting with specific children at the club, playing basketball with them and having his photo taken with a few children and excited adults.

The former Cardinals guard and present member of the National Basketball Association's Detroit Pistons came to the Boys and Girls Club by way of a charity auction won by Patrick Gaunce and a few other people during the Holiday Bash in Bowling Green in December. The Bash is a fundraiser for 15 charities in southern Kentucky.
