FORT HOOD, TX (KXXV) -

Garrison Commander Col. Todd Fox and Baylor Men's Basketball head coach Scott Drew teamed up earlier today.

Baylor coaches and graduate assistants held a children's basketball skills clinic at the Bronco Youth Center on Fort Hood Saturday morning.

The children ranged in age from six to nine-years-old and seemed to have a great time as they worked on their dribbling, shooting and passing. 

"Saw them smile and have fun and enjoy basketball and hopefully became Baylor fans. But, really it was a way for our staff to say thank you for the soldiers and for what they do for our country, and we wanted to give back to their families," Coach Drew said. 

Coach Drew and his staff guided the children through drills, competitions and games for about two hours.

At the end of the clinic, Coach Drew called all the kids to half court and gave them a pep talk. In response, some of the kids told Coach Drew they wanted to play for him one day. 

Each child left the gym with a signed Baylor basketball and a huge smile.
