Moton, 45, grew up in Raleigh and used to play basketball at Lane Street Mini Park, which will be renamed LeVelle Moton Park. He is in his 10th season as the Eagles head coach.
According to Moton, playing at the park was an important part of his childhood,. He also played basketball for N.C. Central from 1992-96.
“We found true happiness because we didn't have what everyone else had,” Moton says. “So, we learned to except the little things and embrace the little things, and once you devote your time and your value system to the little things, this is the outcome, so I hope this park can inspire people."
