WHAT: The Shadow League is hosting its 5th Annual Shadow League Awards Dinner, presented by AT&T Humanity of Connection in New York City to celebrate the remarkable achievements of men and women of color who are trailblazers in the world of sports. Hosted by Sports journalist Taylor Rooks, The Shadow League will honor basketball Hall of Fame Player and University of South Carolina Head Women’s Basketball Coach Dawn Staley, legendary American Boxer, promoter and social advocate, Bernard Hopkins (aka “The Executioner” and “The Alien”), Ana Julaton, 3 Time World Boxing Champion/International MMA star and Fox Sports Broadcaster Gus Johnson.
In an industry where one often associates the success of a sport and/or a specific franchise with the athletes who play, there are often a number of individuals who contribute to that success who are overlooked. The Shadow League Awards dinner was designed to highlight and celebrate those individuals in sports who often excel and remove barriers in the “shadows”.
