A Brentwood resident for decades has put his community and neighborhood kids before everything else.
John Rueb has been a volunteer coach for the past 20 years. He started his own basketball league, combining general education and special education kids 10 years ago.
"Anything to include special ed kids with gen ed kids I think is a great thing," Rueb said.
Rueb says 16 years ago, his wife got into a bad accident and he lost his son.
"From that point on I decided to turn a negative into a positive," he said.
