COACH DEFINES ROLE IN CAMP

In response to Wednesday's article titled "Kids floored after coach drops the ball," I feel readers may be misled.

A paragraph under the subtitle of "Insufficient funds" may not have clearly expressed my relationship with a football camp run by Terrance McDuffie in the summer of 2003. The camp was not run to fund a Warriors basketball trip to the AAU nationals.

Although the wording of the article may have led readers to understand otherwise, I had no involvement with the financial arrangements of the camp. I simply provided help with the training and agility aspect of the camp.

Furthermore, I never received any payment for this service. To concur with Russ Miller, a respected local AAU coach who was contacted for a statement, I never saw any financial records, let alone itemized financial records for the football camp or the AAU basketball organization.
