Franklin’s own Garrison Mathews is returning to Middle Tennessee to host his first basketball camp at the end of the month.

Mathews, who prepped at Franklin High School and went on to star at Lipscomb, is a rookie for the Washington Wizards and will be hosting the Garrison Mathews Pro Skills Mini Camp presented in partnership with F2 Basketball.

Mathews said the camp allows for him to give back, which is something he loves to do. 

"It wasn't too long ago I was in their shoes so it's a good opportunity for me to connect with (the kids) and hopefully continue it year after year," he said. 

The basketball camp will be held at Lipscomb Academy and is open for players in grade 6-12.  It features Mathews, NBA skills coach Colin Stevens and trainer Jordan Romine. The trio will instruct players for two days July 30-31.

The two-day camp will bring the training experience Mathews has endured in his journey to the NBA. The camp will offer players a direct insight into the highest level of professional skill development and all participants will have an incredible opportunity for growth in addition to the chance to develop alongside other players.

Mathews signed to be a part of the Washington Wizards organization and be a member of the G-League affiliate, the Capitol City GO-GOs in late June. He finished his career at Lipscomb by leading the Bisons to the program’s first National Invitational Tournament championship game in April and scored 2,478 points, the most in the school’s Division I-era.
