HINDMAN, Ky. (WYMT) - A former mountain athlete is using his platform in college basketball to help the region he calls home.

Colby Napier, a graduate of Knott Central, hosted a flood relief exhibition game between his Transylvania Pioneers and the NKU Norse.

”It just meant a lot to me seeing everybody from the surrounding areas come in and just help a small Eastern Kentucky,” said Napier. “Towns like Hindman, Breathitt, and all that just coming together and helping us figure everything out.”

All proceeds from the game were donated to ARH.
