BUCKHANNON, WV. - Head Coach Patrick Beilein winds down his first "Shooting Academy" held in John D. Rockefeller center this past week. The camp kicked off Monday the 22nd and will finish, Thursday the 25th. "The kids have been great listeners this week," stated Beilein. "Being our first camp, the kid's willingness to learn and pay attention has made all the difference."
The week has also given first year assistant Frank Young a chance to get his feet wet. "It's nice to come into this scenario as my first full week here," Young said. "The kids have been energetic and it has excited me for the upcoming season."
Young and other first year assistant, David Richards, will aid Beilein on the sideline in his 2nd year as the Bobcats enter their inaugural Mountain East Conference season. The pre-season for the Bobcats will start soon after the return of the student body, August 19th.
