Mason organized a basketball clinic for his senior year capstone project, expressing his love for the sport as the primary motivation behind his choice.
In a local newspaper interview, Mason explained that his project idea stemmed from his love for basketball and his desire to combine it with his academic work.
He enlisted the assistance of nine members from the boys’ varsity team and three players from the girls’ team to support him.
The clinic accommodated 65 children ranging from 1st to 8th grade, with various skill stations set up for each age group. The volunteer players each oversaw a station, providing focused instruction on basketball fundamentals.
The student-athletes’ dedication and organizational skills shone through as they worked with the children, resulting in a highly successful and well-structured event.
“Very proud of Mason and the other athletes who participated and gave up their time from 1-4 on Thursday and Friday of a vacation week. ” Coach Bob Slater
