Latavius Murray, a running back with the Minnesota Vikings, came back to his hometown last week to support a fundraiser for the OCC Advantage program. OCC Advantage helps students from East Syracuse Minoa, Solvay and Onondaga Central (Murray’s Alma Mater) earn a tuition-free scholarship to OCC provided they meet certain requirements. Proceeds from the June 26th fundraiser at Beak & Skiff will go towards the scholarship fund.

The priceless moments, though, was seeing the looks on the faces of Murray’s fans when they got to meet their role model and hometown hero. Check out some of the highlights below.

Thank you Latavius Murray, for graciously spending your Tuesday evening with us – signing autographs, drawing raffle prizes, and talking with everyone who attended. A special thanks goes out to Rob Price and Tim Mumford from Onondaga Central Schools for helping coordinate Murray’s visit.
