FORT WAYNE, In. -- Eight year old Corrion loves basketball and fast food. He hopes there is a special guy out there that shares his interests and steps up to be his Big Brother.

"I like to do math, reading and science."

Corrion enjoys the second grade and said he always does his homework. The first thing he does when he gets home from school:

"Clean up my room."

After school work and chores are done, most of Corrion's attention is focused on one thing.


He likes to watch basketball, especially his favorite team, The Chicago Bulls. And he also plays basketball games on his X-Box.

"I have two basketball games."

He also enjoys getting out on the court and playing basketball.

"I play basketball... but not in the NBA."

He hopes to change that one day and play professional basketball.  Corrion does like a few things other than basketball.

"I like to go to Sky-Zone, laser tag, McDonald's, and bowling, and Wendy's."

Corrion has an older brother, who is ten, but they don't always get along.

"He's mean to me sometimes."

Which is part of the reason he wants to be matched with a Big Brother through the program.  He's been waiting for a year without a match, but hopes that will change soon.
