Son of OHS grad named outstanding basketball player

Ten–year-old Braeden Wilson, the son of former Orofino High School and Lewis-Clark State College basketball standout Zach Wilson, recently attended Fred Mercer’s 34th Annual Kamiah Basketball Camp.

Braeden, of Lewiston, who will be in sixth grade this fall, competed in the minor league division at the camp. The minor league division is comprised of boys entering grades six through eight.

Despite his young age, Braeden proved to be an outstanding player, a scoring and rebounding powerhouse. At the awards ceremony on the last day of camp, Braeden was selected Most Valuable Player in the minor league division.

Camp founder and organizer Fred Mercer said that the award goes to “the one player in each age group that a coach would most like to build a team around.”

Braeden is the grandson of Stewart and Le Ann Wilson and Kenda and Bob Tribble, all of Orofino.
