ICYMI: Viral video of men’s basketball team, baby of assistant coach makes national news

What started as a video on Tik Tok, now has gone viral and brought national attention to Saint Leo University and its commitment to employees and our core values. Ashley Webster, an assistant Saint Leo University men’s basketball coach and mother of baby Aiden, recently created a video about the support she has 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!

Webster’s video captured the attention of platforms such as Barstool Sports, Upworthy, and other big players in social media, and has garnered thousands of views. Then, on Saturday, July 2, The Today Show shared the video during its “Morning Boost” segment:…/coach-s-newborn-baby-brings-joy…

Enjoy a glimpse of Aiden, one of our youngest Lions, capturing the hearts and attention of not only the men’s basketball team, but now the nation!
