Antavion is inspiring the next generation of leaders through his volunteer work as a basketball coach at summer camps and tournaments, partnering with Toys for Tots and regularly supporting Mid-South Food Bank. Christian connects with the SWLA community through jersey signings, mentoring younger children and participating in summer camps. During the holiday season, he also helps with Christmas shopping for underprivileged children.

Smalls Sliders specializes in fresh, cooked-to-order cheeseburger sliders—small in size, BIG in taste. The Can stands out with a streamlined slide-thru, walk-up window, and a unique modular setup built from Smorange shipping containers.
