Today on the BeachLifestyle Radio Show, Host Neil Haley will interview former NBA First-Round Draft Pick: Adonal Foyle!
Adonal Foyle was selected in the first round (8th pick overall) of the 1997 NBA draft by the Golden State Warriors. He is the Warriors’ all-time leading shotblocker with 1,140 blocks. He is also the only player in Warriors history to have over 3,000 career rebounds and over 1,000 career blocked shots.
Adonal grew up in the tiny island of Canouan in St. Vincent & The Grenadines, where he was raised by his grandmother and pet donkey and relied on a kerosene lamp to light up his room while doing homework.
Although he has received a rare gift to live out his dream to become a professional basketball player, Adonal also knows that it’s important to not forget where he came from and to give back to his community every which way he can.
During his 10 seasons with the Golden State Warriors, Adonal committed himself to community serve throughout the Bay Area. He’s received various awards during that time, including the 1998 May of San Francisco’s Sports Hero Award, the 1997 Athlete with a Heart award, given by the American Heart Association, as well as several NBA Community Service Award.
In 2006, Adonal also started the Kerosene Lamp Foundation. KLF, a non-profit 501c3 organization, helps empower children of the Eastern Caribbean as well as the United States and give them the right tools to navigate life’s challenges such as illiteracy, sexually transmitted diseases and economic hardship.
