NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Westchester businessman and youth sports advocate Kenneth Plummer has been on scene with the New Rochelle boys basketball team as it enjoys a magical postseason run.
Plummer recorded several videos during the Huguenots' recent television tour after a video of player's Khalil Edney's 55-foot miracle shot went viral across the country, prompting interviews on "Good Morning America," ESPN's "Sport Center" and other morning shows.
Plummer, who heads the public relations firm Kensworth Consulting, worked closely with New Rochelle basketball coach Rasaun Young in the city's summer basketball programs last year.
"I was glad to assist my good friend Coach Rasaun Young as I booked them (last week) on 'Good Morning America,' 'Sports Center,' 'Good Day New York,' 'Inside Edition' and a few other stops," Plummer said. "They were tremendous ambassadors to not only New Rochelle, but also the entire Westchester community."
Plummer, a Mount Vernon native, said the New Rochelle run was bitter sweet because his hometown team was eliminated by New Rochelle.
"I called my personal friend (Mount Vernon coach) Bob Cimmino to just let him know (about the media blitz) because of our friendship and he understood and was genuinely happy for coach Young, even though they were still hurting," Plummer said.
The New Rochelle team will be in upstate Glens Falls this weekend.
