Lady Bulldog Alums Give Back at Camp

In high school sports, it's always about establishing a tradition of winning, but it's also important for former players to give back.

Another successful Lady Bulldog Basketball Camp wrapped up Friday in Burkburnett. 

It was a great chance for some young girls to learn from players who left their mark on the program.

The Burkburnett coaching staff was joined this week by former Lady Bulldog players such as recent graduates Trinity Davis and Autumn Johnson.

"I've always told myself, 'After I graduate, give back,'" Davis said Friday. "Whether it's through camps, or just mentoring. I feel like this is a way to mentor to younger girls who deserve it."

"When we were young and coming up through here, we always looked up to the campers, being the older kids on the block, we were really excited" Johnson said. "It's just crazy coming back and now I'm in charge of all the little kids. I remember being that age and being like, 'Aww, I can't wait til I can coach.' And now I am, it's just surreal."

Many of the young campers have gone to BHS games and watched these Lady Bulldogs play. Assistant Coach Loy Triana talked about what it is like for the girls to be coached by their role models.

"They'll be looking for autographs," he said. "To them, they are the WNBA. They don't know what the WNBA is, but they know these kids. 'We're watching them! We're going to see them play basketball at a game!'

"And they see them, and they go, 'Aww, there's Trinity Davis! Look at her, and that's my coach now!' Or, 'There's Autumn Johnson and she's my coach,' or 'There's Kaylea Armstrong and she's coaching me also.' So we just have a bunch of kids that are associating with our programs."

So maybe, some of the girls attending today's camp just might be the ones coaching it a few years down the line.
