RENS founder, and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker, Dan Klores, director of the 20 hour, 10 part ESPN epic, "Basketball: a Love Story" creates TEAM NEW YORK, with Executive Director Andy Borman. All 44 Division 1 head coaches in New York State join together to use social media platforms to educate young people about preventing the spread of COVID-19. Vision and leadership at its finest. The moment would eventually spread to New England and New Jersey as well, with the creation of TEAM NEW ENGLAND and TEAM NEW JERSEY.
