Wheelchair rugby event raises money for disabled students at Orange Coast College.Darrell Ray maneuvered his way through the lobby of Orange Coast College's Peterson Gymnasium moments before a wheelchair rugby exhibition was set to begin on Saturday.
"I'm in the mood to hit somebody today," Ray hollered to his friends.
And he wasn't even playing in the game.
When the opening buzzer sounded, Ray provided the play-by-play as eight athletes zigzagged across the basketball court and smashed into each other in a full-contact showcase.
There was little stop in the action, as the two teams racked up a combined 101 scores.
The event, held annually on campus, raised money for students with disabilities. Money is split evenly between the Campus Colleagues, a group that provides financial assistance to disabled students, and the Bill Alvarez Scholarship Fund.
