Former Arizona Wildcats guard Kyle Fogg posted a photo on Instagram yesterday of him embracing Sean Miller during his playing days with the Wildcats with a message of gratitude toward the coach.
Fogg, who played professionally this season in Germany and Spain, is attempting to draw support to help build a school in Ghana as part of the Pencils of Promise fundraising drive. He labels his effort “Grinding for God”. Fogg reached out to Miller, who coached the guard from 2009-12, for a donation and Miller delivered in a significant way.
Fogg did not disclose what Miller donated but the Pencils of Promise site lists a $4,000 donation yesterday. Fogg has raised $7,405 of his goal of $25,000.
“Year after year Coach Miller and the staff welcome me back with open arms during my off season,” Fogg writes in the Instagram post. “I am able to use the NBA level facilities, and get help from good friends who are managers. So blessed to have been able to be a part of this amazing program.

IF YOU CAN, PLEASE MAKE A DONATION TO KYLE FOGG’S GRINDING FOR GOD CAMPAIGN TO BUILD A SCHOOL IN GHANA AS PART OF THE PENCILS OF PROMISE PROGRAM
“It’s a family and although I love the game, it’s not the only thing I am passionate about. As most of you probably know my number 1 goal is to make a difference, and help people who weren’t blessed with the same opportunities I was. After telling Coach Miller more about the fundraising I am doing to build a school in Ghana, he didn’t hesitate to ask me how much I needed.
“He happily gave me by far my biggest donation to date. I have to give a special thanks to Coach for supporting me with goals that have nothing to do with basketball. Being out of the program for 4 years, there is nothing I can do for coach and he doesn’t expect anything in return. That’s what it means to be a part of a family. #wildcatforlife #family #GrindingforGod”
