KCHS Senior Basketball Star has officially signed and returned his Letter of Intent to attend and play basketball at Siena College. He is the fourth and newest addition to the Saints’ Class of 2021 joining Jordan Horn and Roman Penn and forward Prince Oduro. Horn and Oduro both inked with Siena during the early signing period in November. Penn joined the program as a midyear enrollee in January.
In a Press Release from Siena Collge, basketball coach Jimmy Patsos said. “We’re excited to have Manny join our program,” He added, “He’s a high character individual. Manny is a versatile, well-rounded, multiple position, do-it-all player in the mold of a Lavon Long, and we hope that he can continue to evolve into being that type of player.”Camper has been a 4 year starter for the Trojans. In his first game against Washington High School in December 2013 he made a buzzer beating 3 point shot to win the game against the previous year Bayside Champs. Unfortunately he hurt his knee in the Bayside Championship game this year against Stephen Decataur, which forced him to end his High School career a couple of games earlier than he would want, he still lead the Trojans to an undefeated year against the Bayside North. The Trojans had home court advantage in the 1A East Region and were able to win the Regional Final against Pocomoke with him cheering them on from the bench.
Manny Camper ended his High School career as Kent County’s leading scorer with 1,951 career points. The 6’5″, 200-pound guard/forward was the North Bayside Player of the Year in each of the past two seasons. This season, Camper averaged over 28 points and 13 rebounds per game and averaged better than 26 points per game during his junior year.
