East Clinton basketball players wore lime green socks in honor of head coach Tony Berlin, who is dealing with an illness and is no longer coaching the team.


East Clinton High School principal Matt Baker took a video of the players, cheerleaders, coaches and fans prior to Friday’s boys varsity basketball game with Clinton-Massie.

The video was slated to be sent to East Clinton boys basketball coach Tony Berlin, who is not coaching the team while battling an illness.

Baker implored the crowd to cheer as loud as it could while he walked around the gym taking the video.

At halftime, cheerleaders passed around buckets to help raise money for Berlin and his family. The total raised as announced at the game was $1,200.10.

In addition to Friday’s support, Baker thanked the Clinton-Massie community for its support in the fall when the East Clinton community lost a couple of its own in an automobile crash.
