Peru State Bobcats to host skills camp in August
PERU, NE- Peru State men's basketball head coach Bob Ludwig announced that the Bobcats will be hosting an offensive skills camp on Monday, August 1st, through Wednesday, August 3rd.
According to Ludwig, this years camp will be structured similar to how it has been in the past.
"We want to be able to divide the young men up by not just age group, but by competition level," Ludwig said. "For young kids, we're going to focus more on offensive fundamentals. For the older guys, and high school—you know, varsity level type guys—we try to make things as close to college level as possible."
The camp will also feature a few current Peru State Bobcats, including sophomore guard Skyler Wilson (Omaha, NE), sophomore guard Ty Griggs (Omaha, NE), and sophomore guard Ajantae Hogan (Lincoln, NE) that will help run the camp along with the coaching staff.
"We're going to bring some more guys on as the camp numbers continue to grow," Ludwig said. "We're excited about those guys helping out and really we are hopeful that we can continue to build a following here in southeast Nebraska."
Alongside building a following in southeast Nebraska, Ludwig acknowledges the talent pool of players from the bordering Iowa and Missouri states that sit less than 30 miles from the campus.
"We'd like to grow the camp and get more and more young men here to not just spread the news on our program, but try to help kids get improved in their games," Ludwig said. "We feel like coach Weeks has done a tremendous job turning the Auburn community into a basketball town. We want to pull from that. We want to get some kids from Nebraska City as well."
The camp will hone in on ball handling, passing and shooting through a variety of 1-on-1's, 3-on-3's, and 5-on-5's each day. The camp will be held from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm each day, with a walk-in registration on Monday at 8:30 am.
