Learning From A Pro

Former UK stars Cousins, Sheppard wow young campers at Rocky Hollow


Somerset —

Sponsors included Wendy’s, CoreTrans, Quick Care, Moe’s Southwest Grill, Jack Kain Ford and Hometown Pharmacy.
“It’s been great here,” said Goldstein. “One of the things  that’s kind of different is ... a lot of the other camps, the three players who are UK guys don’t always come to each session, but it’s unique here that Julius, Jeff and Cousins are going to be here every single day. Cousins will come here not the whole morning or whole afternoon but in the middle of the day so he can be here about an hour-plus, for both the morning and afternoon each day.”
Sheppard, who lives in the area, is no stranger to the Pulaski County community, but enjoys coming to participate in events like this and share what he learned and did at UK with both fans and the next generation of hoopsters.
“I know the fanbase loves Kentucky basketball,” he said. “Rocky Hollow and the City of Somerset have one of the best facilities in the state. I’m jealous; I wish we had a facility like this in Laurel County. So it’s a great place to have the basketball camp. We’re thrilled to be here in Pulaski County.”

    Take a walk down the main hallway of the Stoner Building on the campus of Somerset Community College starting in April, and you might think you’re surrounded by a gorgeous array of storyboards for Disney Pixar films: Brightly colored animals romping about in lavish jungle scenes, the kind of thing likely to bring a smile to any child’s face.
