GRAFTON—People have been told all their lives that you will never get anything good for free. Well, this was not the case in Grafton early this week.
Toothman Ford held their inaugural basketball camp this week, and it was a huge success.
The camp, which was free to the kids of Taylor County, hosted more than 80 campers in the three-day sessions.
JR Toothman, owner of Toothman Ford Sales, brought in experienced instructors, which gave all the campers some new insight on the game.
The instructors included former Mountaineer standout Darryl Prue, former Fairmont State Falcon Warren Doles and experienced trainer Nick Bonnett.
The instructors worked on all the fundamentals of the game of basketball including passing, ball handling, shooting and defense. They showed the kids numerous drills that they could take away from the court and practice on a daily basis.
“My girls had a great time and learned a lot during the three day camp,” said Tyler Stevens. “I hope this is something that the kids will be able to do for many years to come,” he added.
Along with the great instruction the kids were given a Toothman Ford basketball camp shirt that they all wore for the last day of camp.
The camp was organized by JR and Jarrett Toothman, who have been giving back to this community for many years. J. Toothman and Dominic Lough handled the day-to-day operation of the event.
The camp organizers would like to thank Mike and Tim Ware for all of their help getting the Social Center ready for the event.
