Last week we had about 15 current Hawks players attend the Coach Z Basketball Camp held at Crescenta Valley High School, home of the CV Falcons. We also had some former Falcon/Hawks players coaching at the Camp. Two of our players, Steven Hodges & Tyler Carlson were interviewed and quoted in an article from the Glendale News Press.
Glendale News Press – There are plenty of campers who return each summer to soak up additional information from Zargarian. Among those were Steven Hodges and Tyler Carlson of La Crescenta. Hodges, 13, made his third straight camp appearance. Carlson, 12, attended the event for the third time in the last four years. Hodges, who attends Rosemont Middle School, said he came back to the camp to work on his shooting skills. “You get to be out here with your friends,” Hodges said. “There are so many lessons involved with the camp. “When you are doing a drill, they make sure you are doing it right. If something needs to be corrected, they help you correct it.” Carlson said the time spent learning from Zargarian is invaluable. “You can pick up things very quickly from them,” Carlson said. “They work with you on shooting because you can lose your shooting touch very quickly. “I take the things I learn from here and bring it home. You have to keep at it if you want to get better.”
Jake Weingarten, who plays on our Hawks 10U Team received the “Hustle” Award, while Tyler Carson (Hawks 13U Team) pictured with former Falcon standout, Cole Currie, was chosen “Camper Of The Week”
