The Section 1 boys basketball coaches recently announced their First Team All Lower Hudson honorees and three of the six award winners are part of the MVP Basketball Camp family. We congratulate Quion Burns, from White Plains High School, Quinn Kelly from Rye High School, and Jayshen Saigal from Scarsdale High School.
Quion Burns spent many summers as a camper. He volunteered his time as a Coach in Training last summer and will officially transition to a coach this summer. “Q” reflected fondly on his summers at MVP. “That’s the one thing I love about MVP, the coaches aren’t just there to hang out, they genuinely love the kids and the game, and it shows.”
Quinn Kelly also spent multiple summers as a camper at MVP. From ages 9-12, Quinn was a fixture at Highlands on the outdoor courts. He enjoyed the competition and comaraderie at camp. Quinn mentioned that he often met campers from other towns throughout the winter during the regular basketball season.
Jayshen never attended camp but he did volunteer for the MVP Junior Board, a group of dedicated high school students whose mission is to raise money for scholarship campers. In that role Jayshen said, “the work ethic of the junior board members was outstanding as everyone was working hard to raise money to give more kids opportunities.”
We truly congratulate these three fine athletes but we are even more proud of their character and how they help support MVP’s mission. You can read more about their basketball feats here.
