On Saturday, Feb 15, Gatorade conducted a surprise locker room makeover at Riverdale High School in one hour during their afternoon boys basketball game vs. Ben Franklin High School. Dwyane Wade was on hand to participate in the makeover and surprise the team post-game with their new pro-caliber locker room.
Riverdale High School is currently 16-8 . The team is having its second best season in program history. Their varsity locker rooms were built in 1976 and have never been updated until today. The team is coached by Robert Mays
You can look at the before and after photos below. Truly amazing what the Gatorade crew was able to do in one hour.
I was able to speak to Wade about how fulfilling it was for him to be a part of this and what advice he would give the kids about handling the pressure of life both on and off the court.
Check out how Gatorade transformed the locker room and the kids first reaction when they saw D Wade.
