John Thompson Camp at Big Man U

John Thompson’s death this week got me reminiscing about John Thompson basketball camp, which I attended three times during the 1980s.

Thompson wasn’t the kind of big-time college coach who put his name on the camp and made a cameo some point during the week. He was around. And his imprint was on everything.

I can see, in retrospect, that the experience helped me grow as a player, a fan, and as a person.

Thanks for your consideration! I graduated Georgetown in 1995 and ended up covering the Hoyas a bit as a sports writer for The Georgetown Voice.
