PHOTOS: Seventh annual Band of Brothers Memorial Classic
On September 2011, Ocoee High School graduate Bob Deronvil suffered a fatal heart attack while playing basketball at Northwood University. It was his first year in college.
Today, his memory lives on with the Band of Brothers Memorial Classic basketball game. The Seventh Annual B.O.B. Memorial Classic was held on Saturday, June 2 at Ocoee High School.
All proceeds of the game go toward the Bob Deronvil Scholarship Fund, which is awarded to one male and one female athlete each year, said Amilcar Matus, who was best friends with Deronvil.
Matus said seeing how much the event has grown over the years warms his heart
“It’s heart warming,” he said. “I love it. Every year it’s getting bigger and bigger.”
