Lincoln Training Camp, Week 3 Update

The third week of summer training camp for the Lincoln Boys Basketball program is in the books and now the Railsplitters youth movement prepares to shine in the Grand View Team Camp Friday & Saturday.

The injury bug hit the Rails hard as three varsity staples are currently in concussion protocol. Alex Crimmins took a knock while taking a charge against Linn-Mar Saturday, Nate Feller was fouled hard and Aidan Cord caught an elbow in an unfinished contest with DCG Tuesday night.

Seniors Nate Feller and Ben Badger shined at the Drake Team Camp, playing almost every single minute of the five-game slate over a two-day period. They even received a little love from Prep Hoops Iowa and QuadVisual for their high-level play against Mt. Vernon and Minnehaha.

While Feller and Badger led the charge, the injury to Crimmins as well as the unavailability of seniors Kameron Young and Andrew Klein left a lot of minutes on the table for rising Rails underclassmen.

Freshman Trovary Cavil stepped into a starting role seamlessly, canning four threes in both games played under the bright lights of the Knapp Center. Outside of Lincoln’s new rising star in Cavil, freshman sharpshooter Benno Cooper and freshman board man Jamal West saw varsity time Saturday.

Sophomores Victor Hatungimana, Aidan Cord, Joseph Daughenbaugh and Zander Kehoe all saw significant time for the varsity squad at Drake as well. For Daughenbaugh and Kehoe, it was their first taste of varsity basketball.

On Monday morning, the Rails Basketball team joined the Lincoln Football team for a week at the Iowa National Guard facility at Camp Dodge for the annual Fitness Camp. After 8 hours of intense workouts, team-building and learning opportunities, senior Kameron Young won MVP of the camp for the second straight year.
