This week’s Five-Star Basketball camp brings us to Baylor University in Waco, TX, home of the legendary Bears. There is always a lot of hype around the camp and this year is no different. Despite the rain showers, Campers showed up in large numbers to check in, eager to get camp started.
“Every year, I can’t wait to come to camp because I know I’m going to get better and push myself,” Said Liam Fukushima a 17 year old senior.
The Rest of day 1 consisted of stations and tryouts, giving both the coaches and the players an equal opportunity to get acquainted with each other.
“The Coaches are always in it with us, they don’t just teach us and wonder off, they really want to see us improve,” said Stefan Vidovic a 17 year old senior.
At the end of Day 1 the coaches drafted and selected their teams, filling day 2 with intense games. Both the Spurs and the Lakers put on an impressive display of basketball with standout players Sherman Long, who demonstrated great point guard play, seeing the court very well, putting his teammates in great positions to score the ball and Stefan Vidovic who dominated offensively, look primed to go far in the playoff during the remainder of camp.
Here are some of the campers that have stood out thus far:
We are now looking forward to Day 3 and 4’s playoffs. In the meantime, here are some pictures from the first two days:
