Kid to Know has quite the charisma!


CHAMPAIGN — A round of applause for this Kid to Know.

Patrick Tessene was named Male Athlete of the Year by CUSR (Champaign-Urbana Special Recreation).

He was honored at a meeting last week. Patrick competes in four different sports with basketball being his favorite. But, he was chosen for more than just what he can do on the court.

His coaches say he’s always encouraging his teammates and he always has a smile on his face.

The Female Athlete of the Year holds a special place in my heart. It’s my daughter, Sophia Tomaso.
