“Cameron’s a great kid, very respectful towards adults and his teammates,” Ben’s Ford Christian School boys basketball coach Landon Tims said. “He’s a hard worker. He talks about putting in the time and the work and he backs it up. This is his first year playing basketball. He’s never played before, but when you watch him play on the court, you would think he has been playing a lot longer than he has because his work ethic is top notch. He’s a great kid. He’s a great student. He’s just an all-around exceptional athlete and I’ve really enjoyed my time with him. He makes bus rides and locker rooms and sitting the bleachers waiting to play games and the long evenings, he makes it fun. He’s just a good all-around kid.”

Just the team. It’s fun to have a team around me, being able to enjoy the time I have on the court, enjoy the time I have at practice with my teammates.
