“I’m worn out,” was the first thing Eric Hamilton said after concluding basketball camp Tuesday. The Moffat County High School boys basketball coach hosted a camp for fourth through eighth grade boys in the MCHS gym Monday through today, and said even though it wasn’t a long day, the energy from campers kept him working hard. The three day camp was an opportunity for aspiring players to learn the fundamentals of basketball and to “play the right way,” Hamilton said. “We just want to give them a good foundation and hopefully teach them how to practice the right way on their own,” he said. “These kids aren’t going to remember everything but we’re hoping to inspire them to work hard.”
