The Dawson County Tigers hosted a basketball skills camp from June 24-28 for boys between the ages of 5-14 at Rock Creek Park. In their second year in the program DCHS Assistant coaches Will and Carly Anglin have seen an improvement in the program and a slight increase in the number of campers. “I think we have one more camper this year than last year,” Will said. “Getting help from the high school kids has been huge. We are able to work with them in smaller groups.” In addition to the Anglins, junior varsity player AJ Moore lent his expertise to teaching 18 campers the fundamentals of basketball including ball-handling, shooting, agility and footwork. The camp started with basic lessons and progressed in difficulty over the week ending in a three-event competition day that featured a one-on-one tournament, a hot-shot tournament, and the presentation of the best camper trophy.
