Dayton 6th was launched in October 2022 to give Dayton Flyers men’s and women’s basketball fans a chance to invest in the student-athletes in the programs. The nonprofit collective was launched with the support of a number of former top players, including Brian Roberts, the fourth-leading scorer in school history. “We’ve got a good program,” Roberts told the Dayton Daily News. “We got a good thing going. So, it is a totally different element that you have to consider when you’re trying to recruit. I think this helps put Dayton right up there with these bigger programs because on the court Dayton basketball is a big program. It is big time. This is just further allowing up-and-coming student athletes to feel comfortable that they’re well taken care of.” Roberts is on the Dayton 6th board with former Flyers George Janky and Keith Waleskowski. Matt Farrell, a former UD staff member during the Brian Gregory years, is the director of the organization. Local attorney Tom Whalen, an avid Dayton fan, is the community advisor.
