MANCHESTER, N.H. – Southern New Hampshire University men's basketball head coach Stan Spirou attended the New Hampshire Office of Highway Safety/New Hampshire State Police "Governor's Highway Safety Luncheon" in Concord on Monday and presented a young Manchester boy, who was injured in a car accident last winter, a ball and jersey signed by the Penmen.
Ethan Rollins, an 8-year-old from Manchester, suffered multiple severe leg injuries when he and his family were involved in a motor vehicle accident on Christmas Day of 2016. Ethan's family is still dealing with the physical and financial affects of the injuries, while Ethan, a huge basketball fan, had his season ended prematurely.
Spirou met Ethan and presented him with the basketball and Penmen jersey that were signed by the entire SNHU men's basketball team. For more information on the resilient Ethan and the accident he has overcome, click HERE.
Spirou also had the opportunity to meet Manchester Police Lieutenant Brian O'Keefe and his daughter. O'Keefe, who was a speaker at the luncheon, was seriously injured by a vehicle that struck him.
