Playin' in Carolina

Y'all might remember reading in the newspaper last summer about a SC native who brought four of his students, young Native Americans at the St. Labre Indian School in Ashland, Montana, to the Palmetto State for a few weeks.

The students, ages 12 - 15, came from their reservation in Big Sky Country to get a taste of USC basketball camp, but they got to experience a lot more than just hoops - including their first-ever swim in the ocean.

This year, the "Playin' in Carolina" program is expanding to accommodate more camps, more campuses, and more students, including some of the female student-athletes of St. Labre. If you want to see how you can pitch in, visit this website. And read Ron Morris' great write-up of last year's visit while you're there.
