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 workers watched. 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."
