Connecticut and New England Media have been all over Daron lately!!!
We are living our dreams! It has been crazy the last 5 days! It started last Thursday at American School for the Deaf Gym where Daron, and myself were doing QB training that night. After 2 hours of QB training, I asked Daron if he wanted to do some trick shots to post the video on facebook and twitter. He said "Sure why not?" He ended up doing 3 trick shots in total 15 minutes (Hoop, sneaker, 30 yards bucket) He was exhausted and had to go home to do his homework before his bedtime. I ended up edit/cut the trick shots highlights and posted it on youtube, twitter and facebook that night! All of a sudden I was getting all the twitter mentions, e mails and phone calls the next day!!!! Even Good Morning America e mailed me on Saturday and Sunday asking for permission to use his video. (havent heard from them since) New Haven Register was the first newspaper to mention about Daron s trick shots video and posted it in the web site www.NewHavenRegister.com then NBCConnecticut.com did a nice story about Daron s trick shots and how NFL players were talking about his shots! MiddletownPress.com did an article as well. Few other web sites also copied the stories as well! Then yesterday NBC Connecticut TV News called me last minute because they wanted to do a TV Story about Daron Bryden with me and his coach Travis Meyer. Once we were done airing another TV Station from New England Cable News called and wanted to a story about Daron too! We had two TV interviews in one day yesterday!!!! We had a lot of people retweeting his trick shots videos on twitter! Now his video have over 2,900 views! It is a day we will never forget especially Daron! He loved every minute of it!! He is only 8 years old WOW! Today he asked me to bring him to the gym to work out! He never stops practicing he just wants to get BETTER and BETTER!
