GREENBRIER - Greenbrier girls basketball coach Carl Miller hosted the fourth annual Greenbrier's Little Bobcat Basketball Skills Camp May 31 to June 2 at the school.

Unlike previous years, the boys and girls were separated this time. The girls camp was from 8 to 9:30 a.m. while the boys took the court from 9:30 to 11 a.m.

There were 22 girls and 38 boys for a total of 60 campers each day.

"This was the first year we separated the boys and the girls," Miller said. "I really think it made an impact on how much the kids learned. They all seemed more comfortable and got a lot more 1-on-1 time. We didn't get as much done as I would have liked with the amount of time we had, but it's something that we can try to change in the future."

Along with Miller and the rest of the Greenbrier boys and girls basketball teams, former Bobcat and current overseas professional player, Craig Bradshaw, came to help, too.

Bradshaw played at Greenbrier for his first two years before transferring to Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville.

After CPA, Bradshaw played at Belmont for four years. He scored 1,698 career points, ranking him at No. 4 all time in Belmont's NCAA Division I era.

"I've lived here all my life," Bradshaw said. "Coach (Carl) Miller coached me in middle school. I love to give back to the community as much as I can and I want to give back to (Miller). He poured (so much) into my life, so to help him out is something I need to do and I've wanted to do. It was fun."

Miller said that giving back to the community is also something that he believes is important. In addition, he said it helps his team in the long run by teaching the campers what they have been taught by coaches, reiterating some of the fundamentals and skills they work on every day.

The Greenbrier junior varsity and varsity girls teams will play on Thursday, June 8 in a play day at Springfield High School along with East Robertson.
