WSSU players hold basketball clinic at Hanes
SPECIAL TO THE CHRONIC! J.
Winston-Salem State basketball player
William Peay is working as an intern at
Hanes Hosiery Recreation Center, where
the center director is Coach Art Blevins.
He put together a basketball clinic, with
the help of several teammates from WSSU
along with family and friends.
\ A total number of 43 kids from ele
mentary to high school took part in the
clinic, as parents and other department
William Peay, along with the help of
his older brother Antwain Peay who grad
uated from Johnson C. Smith University
and West Forsyth High; Cedric Myers, a
childhood friend of William's at Reagan
High School; senior WSSU forward
Wykevin Bazemore a four-year All
Conference player who is the younger
brother of Atlanta Hawks guard Kent
Bazemore; and senior guard Javan Wells,
who also played at WSSU. All came out
for the special event and to help William
put on a basketball clinic for the kids.
William took the kids and split them up
by grades, with Antwain Peay working
with the youngest kids, taking those kids
and leading them through some passing
drills, dribbling drills and shooting drills.
Looking at the youngest kids in the gym
having fun and enjoying the game of bas
ketball brought joy to the parents' faces as
they took pictures of their children.
William Peay and Cedric Myers both
worked with the middle-school kids on
their mechanics on dribbling and shooting
the ball. as well as the different types of
passes to make on certain situations, and
making lay-ups. These kids were put
through drills that would help them be
more skilled in their basketball ability and
things they could use when they go into the
gym or at home practicing in the driveway.
Wykevin Bazemore and Javan Wells
took the older group of kids info drills that
they do every day for WSSU. Watching
these teenagers work was very impressive.
Out of all the three groups, this group was
the only one that the kids didn't want to
take a break for water. They were full
sp^? the entire time, working on shooting,
moves to get open and moves to get to the
basket, while finishing over top of defend
ers. They even did some defensive drills
that I'm sure no one in the gym expected to
see, but if you do follow WSSU basketball,
you should know their team motto is
"Shock N' Awe."
Every kid in the clinic came ready to
work hard and get better, and they couldn't
have had some of the best people to teach
them. In attendance for the older group of
kids was Winston-Salem Prep star
Mychala Wolf, who just came off of win
ning the girls 1A state championship.
The dedication that she showed by par
ticipating in the event was remarkable. It
proves that just because you have some
success, there is always room for improve
ment to get better.
Center Director Coach Art Blevins
said, "It was a great clinic, and I have to
thank William, his Ram teammates
Wykevin and Javan, and William's brother
Antwain and friend Cedric for coming out
and making this event a success and giving
back to the kids."
Blevins gave high praise for William
and the work that he is doing at Hanes
Hosiery, saying, "William is a great young
man that I am extremely proud of, and it is
a pleasure to have him here with me."
