Hayes teaches basketball
By CLAUDE VINSON
Coach Naylond Hayes, who has compiled an envious record as mentor of the Holly High Basketball Hawks in the last five years, held an inaugural basketball camp for youngsters at the Multi-Purpose Building on Memphis Street last week.
The camp was geared to the ages between 10 and 15.
The four-day camp focused on the essential of roundball fundamentals and covered all aspects. Such drills as shooting, rebounding, boxing out, basic dribbling skills and what Coach Hayes calls the “hockey dribble” were emphasized.
Hayes plans to continue the camp in the years to follow; however, he said that future camps will probably be staged later in the summer.
The camp this year competed with such programs like NYSP which is run by Rust College each year.
The 20 participants for this inaugural camp were Tadarius Whitelow, Terrian Jawan Pool, Kendrick J. Pool, Alexis Hardaway (the lone girl in the program), Godfrey Fayne Jr., Markeise Rodgers, Wesley McNeil, Marquaveus Walton, Cameron Stewart, Justin McMiller, Joseph Hollowell, Adrian Amos Jr., Lewis McKinley Bruce, Carlos Jarmarcus Pool, Ryan Wilkins, Ladarrius Beard, Tavarus Hardy, Timothy Oliver, Mario Parker and Daniel Burton.
Hayes was assisted by a volunteer college student from Ole Miss, Ashley Nunnally, a senior sports psychology major, and Brandy Fayne.
