It is not every day you can learn the basketball basics from the man who scored the most points in Minnesota High School Hoops history. But on Wednesday, about 20 kids did just that at Lincoln Park Middle School at the first Anders Broman Basketball Camp.

"We (family) talk about the different things in high school and that is still some of the fondest memories that we have playing basketball. Different memories that we have and we say, man, we're getting old," jokes Broman.

Broman still has a lot of life to live, yet he has left a legacy. Six years ago on December 27th, 2012; he set the state record during a senior season that also included a trip to the MSHSL Tournament and his own day in Duluth. He capped off his five-year career with 5,119 points.

"Growing up, I always looked up to different college basketball players."

With college basketball at NCAA Division 1 Winthrop behind him, Anders is now conducting camps. Wednesday's camp was his first in his hometown. As he instructed, a couple guests stopped by, his brother and former Winthrip teammate Bjorn and fellow LCA alum Josh Klun of St. Scholastica.

"I was coming home for Christmas and got to be with my family and thought, I might as well help kids in Duluth and surrounding area as well," says Broman.

Anders remembers attending Rookie Basketball Association camps in Duluth and he also runs some youth basketball camps in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. That is where he is finishing grad school and studying sport and fitness administration. He also works with a basketball training company.

"We work with kids all the way up to NBA players. Strength and conditioning and on court skills and different things like that. It is a different challenge, but you have just got to find something to be able to relate," says Broman.

"I don't think coaching is necessarily for me, but who knows down the line. I never know what is going to happen. But I love the player development side of the game," says Broman.

Broman is hoping to bring another youth camp to Duluth in the Spring.
