Pitch clinic offered
Redford clinic moved to St. Michael's; few spots left
Former Frankenmuth High School boys’ varsity basketball standout Brad Redford will be giving a two-day clinic in a neighboring town’s gym.
The Brad Redford Basketball – Shooting & Offensive Skills Clinic will take place at St. Michael’s Lutheran School, 9444 West Saginaw Road (M-15) in Richville on Saturday and Sunday, November 9-10.
The clinic was originally scheduled to take place at Vassar High School. MHSAA guidelines prohibit the clinic from taking place at a public school during the 14-day dead period before the start of the prep basketball season.
Redford, who recently graduated from Xavier University and starred for the Musketeers with his three-point shooting prowess, has started his own clinics and is teaching offensive cage skills across the United States.
Vassar varsity boys’ basketball Coach Chuck Fabbro is very pleased to have him in town, especially right before basketball tryouts begin for the 2013-14 season.
“We at Vassar are so excited to have Brad Redford coming in for a two-day shooting clinic. He is the greatest shooter I’ve ever seen at the high school level,” Fabbro said.
The two, coed sessions are filled. A second session for high school students has been added. The cost is $50 per player. To register, visit Redford’s website, http://www.redfordshootingclinic.com/ and sign up.
Redford will offer his expertise on how to shoot a basketball. Focus is on proper footwork as well as the right way to hold a basketball. Redford will also give participants a number of shooting drills and explain how many shots he took on a daily basis.
Redford will also give innovation ways for players to improve their ball handling skills and demonstrate all drills so players understand the pace in which these drills are possible.
During his senior season, Redford averaged 36.7 points per game as the Eagles finished 23-3. The crowning point in 2008 was being named “Mr. Basketball in the state of Michigan.
Known as No. 12, Redford still owns five state records, including the most points in the first quarter of a game (27), three-point baskets made in a season (143), consecutively made free throws (102), free throw percentage in a season (.967) and free throw percentage for his career (.933 over four years). His 102 straight made free throws is also a national record.
