On Saturday, March 24, approximately 20 local youth participated in the Boys and Girls Basketball Clinic at the Pleasanton High School gym. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. children of all levels learned valuable skills from Coastal Bend College players and coaches.
Coastal Bend College coaches that volunteered were Head Men’s Basketball Coach- Carliss Robinson, Women’s Basketball Head Coach- Nathan Purswell and Women’s Basketball Assistant Coach- Mia Ochoa.
“We are a community college and it’s all about giving back. We have student-athletes who love participating and bringing the next generation of kids up. I am so proud of them, that they came with the coaches. The community came out to celebrate an opportunity to build up students and build success in their lives through sport,” said Dr. Espinoza.
Head Women’s Basketball Coach, Nathan Purswell enjoyed the camp and thought “it was very unique and fun to be able to watch our student-athletes interact with young kids and help develop their game. This was a great experience and having the coyote and being around all the interactions and teaching was a tremendous experience!”
