The program run by Lonnie Allgood, former NFL Player, works with youth in the schools promoting staying in school and working toward getting a college education. Saturdays program was put together by Mr. Allgoods organization and the hard work of the Roselle Police Department.

The event featured a basketball game with NFL Players Joey Porter (Oakland Raiders), Chad Plummer (Colts), Barrette Brooks (Steelers), Mike Campbell (Jets), Kareem Huggins (Jets), Tony Logan (Patriots) against the different teams from the community. The Roselle Fire Department were the first to take to the court, followed by Roselle Veterans and other teams including the youth.
