Christian Geisler, son of Debi and John Geisler of Port Royal, attended the University of Kentucky’s Coach Calipari’s Pro Basketball two-day camp in Lexington July 31 and Aug. 1.
Seven former UK basketball players — Nerlens Noel, Devin Johnston, Tawny Beckham, Julius Mays, Devon Rider, Archie Goodwin and Anthony Davis — returned to their alma mater and worked with the kids both days.
Every Camper was offered the opportunity to get their items autographed. Christian got a UK basketball signed by the NBA players and Coach Cal, as well as pictures with all of them.
As an added bonus he also received an actual piece of the hardwood floor on which UK won their 2012 championship, which was also autographed by Coach Cal.
The basketball camp offered the campers an exciting opportunity to meet and work with dedicated UK players and coaches who encouraged them in ball handling, shooting and sportsmanship.
