Last spring, thousands of teen submitted videos sharing their dreams for the chance to win a day with a celebrity mentor. Although Anthony lacked big muscles and perfect vision, he showed ACUVUE his passion for basketball and shared his hopes of playing college basketball one day. Anthony’s talent caught the eye of Dwight Howard, who set aside a full day to mentor Anthony. Check out this video to see Anthony’s shocked face when he finds out that Dwight is his celebrity mentor. After exchanging his glasses for ACUVUE contacts, Anthony is treated to a personal training session with Dwight, who also shows Anthony a couple moves that he can use on his friends back home on the court. He then introduces Anthony to a professional scout, who gives him insider tips on how to achieve his dream of playing college basketball. After the training session, Anthony took his new skills to the court in a 2-on-2 game against his own little brother and Chandler Parsons from the Houston Rockets . Thanks to ACUVUE, Anthony gained a lot of confidence on and off the court. He now has a great platform to continue pursuing his basketball dreams. Best of all, Anthony wasn’t the only winner of the ACUVUE 1-DAY contest!
