Local native Robert Prunty is the associate head coach of the University of Cincinnati football team.
Prunty spoke to the young people about recognizing their gifts early in life and using them to follow their dreams.
He says he is proud of the Danville Boys and Girls Club for working so hard to enrich the lives of local youth.
"The mentorship and beyond that, the love that they show to these young men and young ladies is unbelievable. It's like a homecoming to me. I have a special place in my heart for home, " said Prunty.
Prunty will also be the keynote speaker for the club's annual Steak & Stake dinner tonight at the Institue for Advanced Learning and Research.
