Yooper High School Basketball Player, Matthew Montie, Donates Pair of Shoes to Opposing Junior Varsity Player

A recent local sports post on Facebook is going viral as of lately, and for great reason.

User Don Hill posted about giving a shoutout to Matthew Montie, a basketball player from Wakefield-Marenisco high school sports who gave a pair of shoes to a junior varsity player from Dollar Bay schools who ‘didn’t have a decent pair of shoes’ on him when he was playing.

Don’s post currently has over 180 shares on Facebook, and it even caught the attention of some members of the Let Them Play Michigan group.

Like Don said, it is truly was a classy gesture from Matthew himself. Hope to see more moments like this from teams across the country, because nowadays a lot of people need good news and this is a great story.
