Ewing Native NBA Player to Host Basketball Camp This August
Davon ‘Clutch’ Reed of the Indiana Pacers, will be hosting a FREE co-ed basketball camp this summer.
It’s no secret that some of the best people in the world come from right here in New Jersey, but especially our athletes. Davon Malcom Reed grew up doing what most kids do; school and after school activities. It just so happens that his after school activity, basketball, transformed him into a humble beast and ended up being his career. Reed currently plays for the Indiana Pacers and wants to give back to his community in a special way.
On August 17th, 2019, Reed will be hosting his very first basketball camp at Princeton Day School. The camp is completely free and is co-ed. This camp will be held in 2 sessions. The first session is for rising 5th -8th graders. This first session starts promptly at 9 am and ends at 12pm. The second session is for those rising high school freshman (9th) all the way up through senior year (12th). This will begin at 1pm and end at 4pm. Please arrive at least 30 minutes early for registration, as there will be 100 participants per session. You only have until July 26th to register your child. That means you should sign up now! This camp is first come first serve, so if you snooze……you know the rest! You can find out more information about waivers and how to sign up here.
If you’re not too familiar with Davon, PST has got you covered. Davon Malcom Reed was born and raised in Ewing, New Jersey. He has been playing basketball since he was little, and eventually that led him to his high school, Princeton Day School. As nervous as he was about attending he managed to get through it. His amazing court skills and good grades got him to the University of Miami, where he played all four years of his college career. In 2017, Davon was 32nd pick in the 2017 NBA draft to play for the Phoenix Suns. Soon after the draft he tore his meniscus, causing him to not have the ability to play for the next couple of months. The then was sent to play for Northern Arizona Suns in the G league. This did not stop his hustle one bit, because Davon is now the shooting guard for the Indiana Pacers. You go Davon! We love a hometown hero!
