The Bring Your Game Camp a Huge Success
On August 7, 2021 in Hernando, MS approximately 80 girls gathered. These young ladies ranged from grades 7 to 12 and came from all over the state of Mississippi along with representation from Arkansas and Tennessee.
The reason that this phalanx of players came together was to attend the Myah Taylor #BringYourGame Camp.
Myah, the former Olive Branch (MS) star and present Mississippi State star, wanted to provide a camp in North Mississippi that contained an exposure component.
The camp included Delta Report Scouting in addition to about 15 college coaches of varying levels. Players were able to perform drills and skills in a regimented camp setting while Delta Report and the college coaches evaluated the players.
North Mississippi has been longing for something like this and Myah Taylor and her staff provided a springboard for them to leap into. It was an exciting day for the parents, players and the evaluating community.
The talent level was very impressive and all of the players worked hard while receiving feedback. As we (Delta Report) observed throughout the day, we were delighted to see the effort of the players.
Though selection of impressive player performances ran deep, we are only able to point out a few. Below, is our Tip Sheet of the #BringYourGame Camp:
