Ex-NFL star Terrell Owens stays busy in Suns’ charity event

Jenn Baluch

Terrell Owens, six-time Pro bowler and wide receiver for several NFL teams including the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, and Cincinnati Bengals has been busy since being out of the NFL.

Terrell had recently participated in a charity event for the Phoenix Suns called the Suns Celebrity Shootout.

The event was put together to help their organization called Suns Nite Hoops, which helps unprivileged children to get off the streets.

“Its helping kids get off the streets, this is very important especially for kids on the streets to better themselves, better their lives, you’ve got to take your hat off and commend the Phoenix Suns for putting on a program like this,” Owens said.

This is the second year Owens has participated in this charity game and he had nothing but positive things to say about being a part of it and looks forward to coming back for many more years.
