Men’s basketball social media goes viral

Did you see Saint Leo University on Good Morning, America and The Today Show? What started as a video on TikTok, went viral last year and brought national attention to Saint Leo University and its commitment to employees and our core values.

Ashley Webster, former assistant Saint Leo University men’s basketball coach and mother of baby Aiden, created a TikTok video about the support she received as a mother and coach.

The adorable video shows Aiden interacting with players, students, head coach Lance Randall, and others, and notes that when Webster was offered her dream job of coaching, she was worried about accepting the position as she needed to care for her newborn son. Coach Randall’s response: “Bring him to work, too!”

In addition to national television networks, Webster’s video captured the attention of platforms such as Barstool Sports, Upworthy, and other big players in social media. It garnered thousands of views.
