NBA player Thomas Bryant to host basketball camp at Henrietta
HENRIETTA, NY A professional basketball player will be in town this weekend for a youth basketball camp.
The Los Angeles Lakers Center Thomas Bryant is hosting the camp at the Hoops Strength facility in Henrietta. Bryant is also from Rochester. He played high school basketball at Bishop Kearney before playing college ball at Indiana University.
“I feel like guys in my position should always give back…always give back to your community, always give back to the kids,” Bryant said. “I remember when I was younger and going to basketball camps. … I remember going to Rochester RazorSharks Camp here.
“For me to come back and try and hopefully a kid or someone will be inspired by what I do,” Bryant continued. “And if I can touch a person and it changes their life, all of that is not a given.”
The camp is divided into three two-hour sessions. Fourth graders through high school will have a unique chance to learn from an NBA professional.
