ORU Basketball Camp


Recommended Posts

I am at ORU basketball camp with my 3 grandsons this week.  The ORU players and Coaches are excellent with the kids ! My youngest grandson asked if we could rent Eli! I told Eli that and he loved it.They have such a genuine spirit and caring attitude.  I have gotten to talk with all the players that are here. Sir Isaac Herron, Trey Phipps and Isaac Mc Bride look good. Elijah Lufille looks healthy and ready for a good season. It really is a family atmosphere here and so wonderful to see  ORU thriving. Get ready for another great year!

I am trying to attach pictures and it says it is exceeding the limit, even with just 1 picture. I'll do my best to get it figured out.

Your image limit should be increased now. PM me if you're still having trouble.

I was told Isaac McBride is an extremely hard worker.  Coach Upshaw had him demonstrate proper  free throw shooting and he has a beautiful shot and makes most of them!

Last day of camp. My oldest grandson Jaxon and I had a great conversation with Sir Isaac Herron. What a smart, articulate , confident young man . He acts well beyond his years. After getting to know the players and coaches I believe we are in for an exciting year! One quick story that Coach Springman told me about Isaac. He got on campus last Saturday and Coach Springman said for Isaac to meet him at the practice gym on Sunday morning at 7.30am. Coach had a ride arranged for him. Well Isaac walked to practice through the rain and arrived at 6.45am so he could stretch and be ready to go. This staff and players are different!

I would give every camper that is there this summer one of those Sweet Sixteen T-Shirts as a camp gift! Just so they can walk around Tulsa with it on!:) Especially at team camp!

Thanks for all the pics, Eagle88.  Brought back some fond memories for me of summer camps in "The AC" as a participant, counselor, and instructor.

Looks like grandson Jaxon could already post-up Coach Mills on the block!  lol
