Earlier this month, thirteen current and former college basketball players from across the Upper Cumberland hosted the UC Basketball Camp at Algood Elementary. Coach Layne Bussell of Algood and Coach Ezra Pinzur of Alabama Huntsville coordinated and also coached the event.
Among the players volunteering was Jack Humphrey. Humphrey is a graduate of Cookeville High School from the class of 2019. From there, Jack went on to further his academic and athletic career at Tennessee Wesleyan University in Athens where he is currently a junior.
While Humphrey’s time competing between the lines has yet to draw to a close, Jack already uses his skills and relationships to give back to the community – this time through the Upper Cumberland Basketball Camp.
In this UCSN Feature, hear from Jack Humphrey about what drives him to teach the youth through sports, how the Upper Cumberland shaped his athletic career, and how he hopes to have an affect on young UC athletes.
