A father's dream, hoped to be finished by his son.

NBA legend Manute Bol stood 7'7" and was one of the most influential athletes off the hardwood. Manute played 10 years in the NBA and dedicated the majority of his wealth back to helping his native home of Sudan through a horrific civil war.

Manute unfortunately passed away at the early age of 47 and couldn't continue to aid his native people. 

Manute had several children, one of whom is now a 15-year-old, 6'10" high school basketball star named Bol Bol. Bol is one of the top prospects in his freshman class and has the potential to revolutionize the way the game is played with his size and athleticism.

Bol is mature beyond his years, and he knows what a future in basketball could mean. He wants the opportunity to finish what his father started and continue to help the people of Sudan.

Watch the video for the remarkable story of a son already poised to finish his father's dream.

A special thanks to Bishop Miege High school and family consultant Richard A. Fancher for helping to set everything up.
