LeBron James helps his old high school debut new uniformsPosted by Inside Hoops
The night was already memorable for the students at St. Vincent-St.Mary’s High School.
On Saturday, they were the lucky recipients of new athletic uniforms for all sporting teams donated by the school’s most famous alum.
Still, LeBron James wanted to make it even more special.
And that he did.
James surprised the student body by participating in the runaway fashion show that debuted the new threads. Just as they were about to announce the presentation was over, Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” began to play over the loud speakers at the football field.
That is when James surfaced through a cloud of smoke wearing the all-black football uniform. He sported a No. 9 jersey, the same he wore in high school before giving up football after his junior season to focus on basketball. Students realized it was James when he made it to the end of the runaway, mobbing him before he removed his helmet.
