The 35th Annual Mike Glenn Basketball Camp for the Deaf and HH was another success in the books! Both the girls and boys were coached by Mike Glenn and assisted by Willie Brown, a former camp MVP (1981, 1982, and 1983) and Division One college basketball player at Hofstra and Georgia State. The camp was also highlighted by a visit from Michael Cooper, a five-time NBA champion with the Lakers and current WNBA coach with the Atlanta Dream.
Michael Cooper, a five-time NBA champion with the Lakers and current WNBA coach with the Atlanta Dream, taught campers the importance of being a student-athlete with “student” coming first.

Although the boy's team ended up losing a thriller in double overtime, they learned the fundamentals of the game through drills, foul shooting, three-on-three competitions and five-on-five competitions throughout the camp.
