I had the privilege of watching Dawson County HS (GA) at Camp of Champs ran by former Presbyterian College coach Greg Nibbert this week. One team that caught my eye was Dawson County from Georgia and their guards’. 6-foot-5 Luke Chism and 6-foot point guard Jasper Dawson. Both are new to the program but bring instant firepower. Here is a short interview I did with each player.
