AUBURN ---- Sixty pairs of father and sons will be attending the fourth annual Jeff Lebo Father-Son Basketball Camp Friday and Saturday in Beard-Eaves-Memorial Coliseum. Three generations of Lebos along with Jeff's father, Coach Dave Lebo and Jeff's 6-year-old son, Creighton, will be participating.
"It's the camp that I actually have the most fun with because it is with fathers and sons," said Coach Jeff Lebo. "It is special for me because I do it with my dad and my son."
Beginning Friday at 2 pm and concluding Saturday at 11 am, the camp will feature station drills, contests in which fathers and sons participate in together as well as competition. The highlight comes at the end of camp when everyone goes through the Auburn Experience in which Aubie makes an appearance and all the fathers and sons are introduced in a starting lineup format on the public address system with their names and hometowns.
"The camp that I enjoy the most of all the camps I've been involved with is the Father-Son Camp," says Coach Dave Lebo. "What is special for me is there are three generations with father, son and grandson.
"We really enjoy doing this. It is a fun event and is a great way for fathers and sons to bond through basketball. Some will stay overnight and others will commute."
