When his kids went off to college, Anthony Dillon looked for a new way to invest his time; he took on a "Little Brother."

Greensboro --  Anthony Dillon watched his own sons grow up and sent them off to college.  Rather than kick back and enjoy some peace and quiet, he decided to take on a Little Brother.

He went to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greensboro and found out how it all worked.  Before he knew it, he was paired with a nine year old named DeNarius.  The two became fast friends.

Four years later, they are still buddies and hang out just about every week.  Whether it's swimming, tossing the football or just going for ice cream, the quality time they spend together is more important than the activity. 

DeNarius is a teenager now.  Texting and girls have become more important than they were when he was nine.  However, one thing has remained the same - his weekly meetings with his Big Brother.

Dillon says they have formed a lifelong bond and he knows they will stay in contact even after Daye grows up.
