EARTH, TX (KCBD) -

Former Red Raider and current Denver Bronco Manny Ramirez is returning home to host the 2nd annual H.U.S.T.L.E (Help Us Share the Love in Earth) 3 v 3 Basketball Tournament and 3-point shootout in Earth, Texas on Saturday, May 17.

Ramirez says he's thrilled to see people come hoop it up.

"I'm excited to get more teams out to compete and have fun. We'll give away a 42-inch TV to the winner of the 3-point challenge."

If you're interested in getting a team into the tournament, you can contact Iris via Facebook at Foundations 619 or through email at ier.ramirez@yahoo.com.

Manny has always been down to Earth; now he's using this event to give back to the people in Earth.

"We're raising money to open facilities where people can come work out from communities all around the little towns of Earth, Texas and give the youth a location to go hang out and have fun," Manny said.

Ramirez and the Broncos just played in this year's Super Bowl. While Seattle dominated, winning 43-8, Ramirez is focused on getting back to the Big Game.

"I'm very hungry. The team that showed up wasn't even us. I'm not gonna lie, it was kind of embarrassing. We have a lot to prove. We're capable of getting back."

Get a basketball team together for the 3 v 3 tourney and go hang with Manny in Earth on May 17.
