In an effort to help promote an anti-drug and anti-violence initiative in the community, Ray Syndor, founder of Shooting 4 Peace and former NFL player, came together with Harford County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Warren Brooks to put on the Shooting 4 Peace Celebrity Basketball game at the APG Federal Credit Union Arena in Bel Air on Oct. 23.

The game featured the Harford County Basketball Stars team made up of former high school and college basketball stars from the area, including former Harlem Globetrotter and Baltimore native Jonte Hall; taking on the Harford County Law Enforcement team, composed of local law enforcement officers.


The event also included a pre-game basketball clinic where the teams helped kids with a variety of basketball skill drills. Local sponsors included Aberdeen Federal Credit Union Arena, Ashley Recovery and Treatment Center, the Aberdeen IronBirds, Planet Fitness, Pristine Styles, LLC, Royal Farms, the Harford County Health Department and others.

While there wasn’t a winner in the Globetrotters-style game, the All Stars led for most of the game.
