Chris Herren Speaks to SHS Seniors Chris Herren speaks to SHS - March 2, 2017

March 7, 2017 - On March 2, 2017, Sidney High School welcomed Chris Herren, a basketball legend from Fall River, Massachusetts, dreamed of one day playing for his hometown team, the Boston Celtics. An All-American, Herren broke scoring records, was recruited by top colleges, featured in Sports Illustrated and became the focus of an acclaimed book Fall River Dreams. Herren realized his lifelong dream of playing in the NBA when he was drafted by the Denver Nuggets in 1999 and was traded to the Boston Celtics after his rookie season, but lost it all due to substance abuse.

Alcohol and drug free since August 1, 2008, Herren has refocused his life to put his sobriety and family above all else. He shares his harrowing story of abuse and recovery in his memoir, Basketball Junkie, as well as in numerous interviews throughout the Emmy nominated ESPN Films documentary Unguarded, of which he is the subject.

Herren shared his story with students from Sidney High School, Lehman Catholic High School, Fairlawn High School, and Jackson Center High School in the hopes of reaching at least one person and making a difference in their life.
