The Pistons Academy Basketball Camp has powered through four days of pre-season and regular season games and is now poised for some post-season play. “This has been a fantastic week of camp,” said Camp Director Geo Thomas, “The kids have played through bumps and bruises and trades and all the ups and downs a season brings. I think Friday is going to be a great final day of camp!
n the FT Contest, Our four #1 seeds are Abe Miller, Aiden Williams, Logan Milford and Brady Smith. Smith and Milford have vaulted their way up to the top of the standings and are ready to make a run at Miller who leads all shooters with 69 points.

Here are the campers who stood out on Thursday:
From Coach Sarah: Mack Reid: I chose Mack because of how hard she is always working on the court. When I asked her about her favorite part of camp she replied “I love the skill stations because they help me become a better all-around player.” Mack is a 4th grader who will be trying out for the Pistons Elite 5th grade team in the fall!
From Coach Shay: My player of the day is Zackary Kazouz because he beat Coach Ben in Lightning. Oh,and his favorite fruit is grapes!
From Coach Geo: I really think all the campers are great and it is difficult to select just one. Today I noticed the following: Abe Miller was always willing to help out on the scoreboard. Caitlin O’Guin really works hard in the stations. Natasha Shell is always playing with a smile. Johnny Crissman never gives less than 100% and today wasn’t feeling well but played through it. Samantha Bentley cheered the loudest for the campers in the All-Star 4-Ball game. All great stuff!
TODAY’S IMPOSSIBLE QUESTION!
