My nephews were fortunate enough to get to attend the Fred Hoiberg basketball camp this week. I went up to watch their final games this afternoon, and watch the awards presentation. After that, we were able to get autographs from the players.
This was my first time inside the practice facility. Man, what a nice place! The kids (ages 13 and 7) had a great time at the camp. I would think it must be exhausting to be surrounded by 150-200 kids all day for 4 days, but the players, coaches, and staff couldn't have been nicer! They all were signing autographs and posing for pictures for anyone who wanted one. We were able to get everyone's autograph on some basketballs and shirts. We mentioned to McGee that he had a great game last night, and he said "Man, I'm still tired from that game!"
I don't think the freshmen are directly involved in the camp, but we were able to get their autographs. It was great to get to welcome them to Iowa. We had nice conversations with Naz Long and Georges Niang. They were both very nice, and seemed genuinely grateful that we wanted their autographs and to be part of the Cyclone family. Their parents should be very proud of them!
As an added bonus, Scott Christopherson and Craig Brackins were there working out and we got their autographs too!
Between the fun at the Cap City League games last night and this today, I'm having about as much fun as a Cyclone basketball fan can have in June!
Anyone else have friends or family attend the camp this year?
