Last 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 Cade Crosland. Crosland is a graduate of White County High School from the class of 2016. From there, Cade went on to further his academic and athletic career at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville.
While Crosland’s time competing between the lines has drawn to a close, his love for basketball does not waver. Now, Cade 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 Cade Crosland 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.
