APD vs Dieruff Unity Basketball Game

Today we photographed a unique basketball event at Dieruff High School in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Originally the game was slated to pit the Allentown Police Department against the Dieruff High School basketball team. However right before the first quarter in an effort to foster unity between the youth and the officers both teams switched some jerseys and played as mixed teams. Given the recent outbreak of incidents involving police and student clashes this was a welcome sign of unity that our community needed. We love being part of these type of events because of their greater significance. While we are not sports photographers at all, we are community photographers that love to put on display the good in our community when it happens and this event was no exception.
