Tyler Stanley was named Camper of the Week July 11-15 at the Campbell University Boys Basketball School. David Dewey, a Campbell basketball player and one of the coaches at the camp, said the Camper of the Week was based an overall evaluation of the camper “through all aspects, from basketball skills, to attitude and character on and off the court.”
Stanley, 12, is a student-athlete at Shallotte Middle School.
“Tyler, you showed leadership all week to your fellow campers and teammates,” Dewey wrote to Stanley about the criteria for the award. “You were in the running for Defensive Player of the Week with all of your blocked shots and steals.
“Also, every day you were in the conversation for Hustler of the Day, with your intense play and effort, from diving on the floor for loose balls and just having that ‘whatever it takes’ attitude.’”
Dewey said Stanley also impressed coaches with his play offensively and defensively.
“Every day you were in the conversation for Defensive and Offensive Player of the Day, as well as winning the knockout competition,” Dewey wrote.
All of those accolades, Dewey said, “were some of the things that led us as a coaching staff to select you as Camper of the Week.”
The Boys Basketball School, for boys between the ages of 8 and 18, focused on all aspects of the game, with emphasis on fundamental instruction, one-on-one play, three-on-three play, five-on-five play, free-throw shooting and teamwork. Each day was divided into three playing and teaching sessions.
