Rockville, MD - The Maryland Nighthawks spent last Friday afternoon with students from Washington Episcopal School in North Bethesda officially kicking off the Premier Basketball League's "Believe in Your Dreams" Tour featuring Luis "Trikz" Da Silva, considered the greatest ball handler in the world.

"TRIKZ," who played in the PBL's inaugural season put on a display of basketball tricks and dribbling and talked to the students about setting and achieving goals.

PBL CEO and Nighthawk's Owner Tom Doyle was also present and talked to students about the importance of work ethic and believing in your dreams. "Part of the mission of the PBL is to make sure all teams are reaching out to their communities and helping the children of the communities in any way possible. Hearing a positive message from a star like "Trikz" goes a very long way to getting the kids attention" said Doyle.

Da Silva has amazed the world with his dribbling ability in the Nike Freestyle ad campaigns that became some of the greatest commercials to ever air. He has also appeared in five video games and was also featured in the movie "The Brave One."
