We all know Chris Mullin‘s basketball prowess but he has also done a lot for the community and here’s one recognition for the St. John’s head coach.

St. John’s Red Storm men’s basketball head coach Chris Mullin will be recognized at the 2016 Samaritan Daytop Foundation Gala next Wednesday on October 26 at Tribeca Rooftop in Lower Manhattan.

They are from the Samaritan Daytop Village, which started out as a Queens counseling center. They have now developed as a nationally-recognized human services organization, doing a lot of good work towards New Yorkers facing adversity.

They have done a number of services, like substance abuse treatment, mental health and primary health care, specialized programs for military veterans, vocational and employment services, shelter and transitional housing, and services for senior.

Chris Mullin, no doubt, has been a fixture on the basketball court and one of the best players to play this game.

What a lot of people don’t know is Mullin’s numerous charitable works he has done for the city. He will finally be recognized at one of them next week, which is as great as anything he’s done on the court over the years.

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
