Valley teen providing Hoops for Hope

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - Gilbert Christian High School soccer player Austin Gutwein, 16, is literally changing the world through a sport he loves and suprisingly it isn't soccer, it's actually basketball.

At nine-years-old Austin found a cause that touched him so much he decided he needed to step up and do something about it.

In May, Austin's going to Africa again to help set up a technology center and computer lab.

On top of everything Austin has also written a motivational book called Take Your Best Shot.
