Damien Mallory, Brian Currie, and Otto McDuffie are former student athletes, and standout ones, too. Each one received all-city honors while in high school and earned sports scholarships to colleges, including the University of Wisconsin, Northern Illinois University, and DePaul University. Currie even played professional basketball in France. As coaches at PLAY Athletics Sports Camp, they use this training and experience to develop athletes' character and in-game skills during instructional sports leagues and camps. Held outdoors, the summer sports camps focus on basketball or football and provide boys and girls aged 6 to 13 with all-day activities, including field trips, scrimmages, and juice-box chug-offs.
