Day two at the Pistons Academy camp at Royal Oak Middle School was no different than Monday as 0ver 60 campers continued to show the three elements we look for at Pistons Academy – Hustle, Respect and Hard Work. And three campers, Avery, Sebastian and Matthew were chosen for showing respect for their teammates, officials and the game.
Red Division Coach Max Wittenberg agreed. “”Campers today were awesome again. Their enthusiasm and energy make this week one of my favorites!”
Along with the positive attitudes, some real talent was being seen on the court. In the Free-Throw Contest, a new leader emerged in Matthew Dilley as he leads the camp with 23 points. He surpasses yesterday’s leader, Evan Stark, who is now in 2nd place with 19 and a host of other shooters tied for 3rd with 17 points.
