Peoria, Ill.- Pop-A-Shot Enterprise, LLC presented new jerseys at the EP!C Bulldog basketball team practice on Thursday, Sept 8. The EP!C Bulldogs are an inclusive team consisting of 10-15 players of diverse ages, sexes, races & abilities.
“We are so excited and thankful to Pop-A-Shot for donating these jerseys. Our team will have so much confidence and feel empowered on the court with official jerseys,” said Ashley Gordon, EP!C Bulldogs head coach.
