Former NBA Player Mike Glenn Holds 30th Annual Basketball Camp for the Deaf

Former NBA player Mike “Stinger” Glenn is playing host this week at the 30th annual “Mike Glenn Basketball Camp for the Hearing Impaired”, which began last Sunday, June 21 and runs through tomorrow. Approximately 100 hearing impaired male and female basketball players from the ages of 14 to 18 were expected to take part.

Glenn chose Father’s Day as the opening day of the camp as a way of paying tribute to his late father, Charles Glenn, who coached all sports at the Georgia School for the Deaf.

Among the long list of athletes and celebrities that were expected to participate during the week were: Ambassador Andrew Young, Martin Luther King III, Lenny Wilkens, Doc Rivers, Dominique Wilkins, Nate Archibald, Marv Albert, Dave Justice, Mitch Kupchak, Teresa Edwards and Michael Douglas.
