Former UCCS star giving back with first youth camp

By  | 

Parker, Colo. Former UCCS and CU basketball star Derrick White has returned home. He hosted the first Derrick White Basketball Academy youth camp in Parker, Colorado.

White’s journey from growing up in Parker to being an NBA first round draft pick was not easy by any means. He now is working to give back to the community he grew up in.

The current Spurs guard said, "This is something I did when I was young, I was in the same field house, the same lines and everything. It's cool just to be a part of it and show them that I was where they were at one time."

Tuesday was the first day of the camp and over 300 kids showed up for the event. The youth camp runs through Thursday at the Parker Field House.
