Tampa, Florida -- Nuccio Park in East Tampa is shining a little brighter.
Wednesday, Oct. 9, marked the opening of the Freddie Solomon Boy and Girls Club of Tampa Bay at Nuccio Park.
The new facility will cater to the neighborhood through youth sports, life lessons, and education.
Former football player Freddie Solomon had an incredible work ethic and dedication. He also did community relations for the Sheriff's Office until his death last year.
Sheriff's office crews have been working hard to revamp and remodel the building.
Dee Solomon, Freddie's widow, says this means so much to the family. She also says children meant everything to Freddie, and he put his heart into trying to be there for them.
