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 Caden Mills. Mills is a graduate of Van Buren County High School from the class of 2018. From there, Caden went on to further his academic and athletic career at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville.
While Mills’ time competing between the lines has drawn to a close, his love for basketball does not waver. Now, Caden 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 Caden Mills 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.
