11-year-old B.J. seeking big brother story image
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - In this month's Big Brothers Big Sisters profile, we'd like you to meet a very special kid.

He's got a very bright future ahead of him, and you can be part of it.

11-year-old B.J. expresses himself best on the basketball court.

He's a good shot, and quick on his feet. Which may be why he wants to be a police officer when he grows up.

B.J.'s in the 6th grade at Paramount Charter Academy in Kalamazoo.

"School is good,” he says. “We go to gym first - then we go to art."

And after school he's busy too. He likes to, in his words, "play basketball, play soccer. Go over to my pa's - go over to my friends houses.”

But he's also got some time after school for a big brother—someone to guide him through middle school and beyond. Someone he can count on.

His perfect day with a big brother would include a stop at Old Country Buffet, and then the basketball court.

Could you be B.J.'s Big Brother? Now the ball's in your court.
