Sixty-five attend JCHS basketball camp for kids

Ray Shoun Gymnasium was filled with future basketball stars that took part in the 2015 Longhorns’ basketball camp recently. The camp ran for four days with boys and girls participating in fundamental drills and competition events.
“We ended up with about 65 kids,” said JCHS boys’ head coach Austin Atwood. “We’ve had as many as 80 participants in past years but this is a great number. We usually have between 50 and 70.”
The camp featured players from K-8 grades.
Carson Jennings and Ryan Morefield took top daily honors. Ethan Campbell was selected as the most improved. Carter Atwood won the free throw contest for the young kids. Natalie Greer took top honors for the upper grade players.
“This is my 14th year of doing this,” said Atwood about his camp. “I couldn’t do it without our boy’s and girl’s high school basketball players. These younger kids look up to them. They love being around them and watching what they do. It’s just a lot of fun for everyone.”
Iron Mountain Construction, Triple C (Kristie Herman), Danny Herman Trucking, Joe Herman and Farmers State Bank (Johnny Muse) played a big role in this year’s camp.
