Enterprise State Community College held its first ever Teen Basketball Camp last week with Wiregrass boys aged 13-16 coming on campus to learn from ESCC coach Jermaine Williams.
While Williams had just seven campers for the first year, he said that it gave him the opportunity to spend more one-on-one time with each player.
“It’s a good number to be able to spend that one-on-one fundamental time with each one,” Williams emphasized. “It’s small in numbers but a lot of learning going on.”
Williams said that he could tell a big difference in just two days of camp for the players.
“This group is a really good group to start with,” Williams said. “We’ve been doing a lot of fundamental stuff and they’ve been improving a lot. We’ve been playing four-on-four today and you can already see the improvement.”
Williams worked on passing drills, footwork, agility and learning how to read defenses to be able to get open for shots with the campers.
“Some of these kids I watch play throughout the year, so I know what they run (at their schools) which has been a help,” Williams said. “It’s been a really successful week.”
