Local Basketball Player, Referee Honored by NBA Team

A Low Country student and a local sheriff's deputy received quite an honor from a professional basketball team. The Charlotte Bobcats named longtime referee Anthony Vaughn the Youth Basketball Network Official of the Year. Seth Andrews, 12, took home the honor of the network's Player of the Year, out of 19,000 players.

The recognition goes to those who show good sportsmanship on and off the court.

"It was pretty exciting," Seth told us. "I had no idea it was me."

The ceremony took place during a recent NBA game between the Bobcats and the Atlanta Hawks. During halftime, Seth played against others kids his age.
