Drew Eubanks surprises some Spurs fans with back-to-school shopping spree at Academy

Some Northside students are heading back to school in style

The San Antonio Spurs teamed up with Academy Sports and Outdoors yesterday to provide five Northside ISD students a $250 back-to-school shopping spree!

Spurs big man Drew Eubanks surprised the recipients with an in-store visit. he helped them shop throughout the afternoon.

“Just being able to give them things that a lot people maybe take for granted — I know I definitely for granted growing up as a kid. It was cool just to be able to give back to them and make sure they could start the school year looking good and feeling confident about themselves.”

The Spurs Coyote was also on hand to keep the children entertained.

As most know, Texas schools are 100% in-person with no funding for virtual learners. Many families do not have the resources to provide new clothes and supplies for their children. Sending back students with confidence is a huge step toward kicking off the year right.

Academy donated an additional $3,000 to Northside ISD to help other students with more school supplies.
