PDS Alum and sophomore basketball walk-on at SMU Jonathan Wilfong '07 started a non-profit program called Coaching for Literacy. During middle school, Wilfong began to notice that a teammate on his AAU team could not read. Wilfong was motivated to change that for his teammate and for others! Wilfong continues to raise awareness and financial support - hoping to one day eradicate illiteracy. Wilfong's coach says that he is "an unbelievable teammate and an unbelievable role model", and PDS agrees! And by the way...Wilfong can dunk!
