The 2015 SDA Elite Invitational Camp attracts Coach Casey Stevenson from Duke University
Casey Stevenson grew up in Raleigh, NC bleeding the blue and white of Duke basketball. He attended Ravenscroft High where he had an outstanding career as a top-scoring shooting guard. After a successful high-school career Casey earned a practice player role on the famed Duke University Men’s Basketball team.
While at Duke, Casey trained with current professionals like Kyrie Irving, Mason and Miles Plumlee, Austin Rivers, and Ryan Kelly, among many others. When Casey graduated, he became a member of the coaching staff, in an operations and film role. Casey has developed close relationships with Coach K and assistant coaches Jeff Capel, Jon Scheyer, and Nate James (along with former assistants Chris Collins, current Head Coach at Northwestern University, and Steve Wojciechowski, current Head Coach at Marquette University). While working at Duke, Casey has been critical in analysing game film, preparing scouting strategy and assisting in operations at Duke Basketball.
This past year, Casey worked in a more administrative role with the Duke Athletic department, overseeing multiple sports. Although not as directly involved with Duke Basketball, Casey was able to enjoy the NCAA Championship team that took the most coveted crown in all of college basketball for an unbelievable 5th time.
Duke is one of the most storied basketball traditions in NCAA history, mainly because Coach K (also USA Basketball Head Coach) has done such a fine job in creating a standard of excellence in the basketball world by attracting top student-athletes year after year.
SDA is delighted to have Coach Casey Stevenson at camp this year, and there is no doubt all of the lucky SDA athletes will learn lots from him given his vast experience at one of the best basketball programmes in the world!
On a more personal note, SDA founder Paul Cummins is delighted to have a great friend of his come to Ireland and see the basketball talent that we have on show.
