Deputies helped unload the items from Lt. Cline’s vehicle, the excitement we could see on the kids faces was priceless
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Recently, while I was out filming an episode of “Riding Shotgun” with our North Precinct Deputies, Lt. Bobby Cline was engaged in conversation with a few kids who shared with him how much they love the sport of Basketball.
The kids discussed their favorite players and how much they miss being able to play since their basketball goal broke and had to be thrown away.
Being the kind of person, dad, and Deputy that he is, Lt. Cline left the area and drove to a local retailer where, out of his own pocket he purchased a brand new basketball goal and basketball for the kids to be able to play at their home.
Lt. Cline called me on his way back to the home and told me that he has been very blessed in his life and wanted to make sure the kids had a goal to play the sport they love and enjoy exercising at their home.
As myself and other Deputies helped unload the items from Lt. Cline’s vehicle, the excitement we could see on the kids faces was priceless.
As the kids thanked Lt. Cline for his very kind gesture, he made sure they knew that he wanted them to have a blast with the new equipment and that he would stop by from time to time to play hoops with them when time permitted.
You often hear me say that, “I am surrounded by an amazing team who do amazing things each and every day to protect our community,” and Lt. Bobby Cline is a perfect example of just how true that statement really is.
