To Whom It May Concern:
It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Mr. Cameron Centers who is a sophomore student at Desert Vista High School.
I have known Cameron for over five years in the capacity of club basketball. I am one of the top referees within the state of Arizona who has refereed many games that he has played in throughout his club basketball experience. Over the years, I have seen Cameron grow from a very passionate and developing athlete to an athlete who has matured and grown to become one of the most elite players in the state.
His personality is one of intensity yet caring, one of being a focused and driven player, yet displays a great sense of team work on and off the court. He is known as a young man who respects the role of referees and consistently shows a great deal of maturity and patience which is a great example for other players.
Given the enormous number of games I referee on a monthly basis as well as the number of players I come in contact with, I can honestly say that Mr. Centers has what it takes to become a successful college student one day. His love of basket ball, his high level of athletic ability along with is drive to be successful academically will take him a long way in life.
I am very proud to recommend this fine young man for this opportunity and hope his is chosen for this award!!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Mr. Steve L. Jones
SLJSPORTS, Owner and Arizona Referee
My name is Cameron Centers, a senior at Desert Vista High School in Phoenix, Arizona. I am interested in attending your college and more specifically interested in your basketball program. I am a left-handed point guard and stand 5 feet 10 inches and weighs 150 pounds. I have played at the varsity level since my sophomore year in high school and have played club basketball since the age of nine. My club team, Team Phoenix, won multiple basketball championships along with being a contender in out of state tournaments as well. During the summer of 2015, I played with the Phoenix Phamily Club Team with Marvin Bagley Jr. who is the number one recruit for class of 2018. A few of my accomplishments and awards include being the recipient of the National African American Athlete Alliance Award, “Defensive Hustle Player of the Year” Award, and “Most Improved Player of the Year” Award.
My overall contribution to any team is my ability to be a leader on and off the court, high basketball IQ, speed, ball handling and defensive skills. I am a team player and very coachable. I can adapt to variety of coaching styles and can connect very easily with team mates.
I take pride in my academic foundation by maintaining an overall 3.5 GPA. I have AP Classes in math and science as part of my core subjects and have taken college level classes through a dual enrollment program with a local community college. My high school college prep classes will assist me with a major in Physical Therapy at any major college or university.
My involvement in the community is also part of who I am as a student athlete. Volunteer activities include participating as a member the Desert Vista Basketball Team to help with building repairs for a local nonprofit agency, visiting a foster care group home, and organizing resource kits for the homeless to name a few. I also volunteered for a former NBA Player Mark West by participating as a camp leader at his Mark West Camp for two years. Lastly, I spent the summer 2015 volunteering as a basketball camp leader for GameOn Sports. Organizers were so impressed with my leadership and organizational skills, and ability to teach the game of basketball, they hired me as full time staff for their second summer camp.
My strong drive for excellence in all that I do academically and in sports as well as my ability to be an effective asset to any college basketball program sets me apart from other recruits.
Having the opportunity to be a part of your program will be such a privilege to me. I thank you in advance for considering me, and I look forward to hearing from you very soon.

Cameron has been a plus for our team (we have moved up to number 6 ranked team in division 1) The players and coaches like him and feel he will be a major factor in our quest for a State Championship. Cameron plays and practices with great intensity and has a good understanding of the game. He maybe the quickest player in the state and is very explosive. We have added a spread set to our offensive because of him. He has the ability to break the other teams defense down for an score or a pass to his teammates for a score. I am impressed with his physical abilities, but I feel Cameron’s strongest attribute is the person he is. He is a very good student, very polite and is liked by his peers, teachers and coaches. Mom needs a pat on the back for a job well done.

RE: Cameron Centers Volunteer Completion
To Whom It May Concern:
Cameron Centers performed 10 hours of volunteer work at Game On! Basketball Camp during the week of June
15 – 19th.
It was a tremendous pleasure having Cameron around to help the program run efficiently while keeping the
children active. He seemed to fit in right away as one of our team members. At Game On! we like to think of our
team as teammates instead of staff members. Our goal after all is to build the ultimate teammate.
Cameron embodied this idea to the fullest extent. He was engaged with the children the entire time, including
during snack breaks and lunch. He went on to participate in getting soaked with a small pitcher of water by the
chosen “Camper of the Week”. He was attentive and engaged in the program even after the campers began to
leave for the day by helping clean up and greet parents as they picked up their children.
He showed tremendous amounts of professionalism in carrying out his duties as a coach and administrative
helper. He helped organize activities and watch the children as they played games and ran drills. A few campers
took to him as a role model due to the fact that he plays basketball at Desert Vista High School. One camper in
particular looked up to him in admiration and it showed by the amount of interest this young camper showed in
Cameron’s educational and athletic career.
It was a pleasure working with someone like Cameron who shows drive and effort in everything they do. His
character and demeanor is exactly what we are looking for in our teammates at Game On! and we would be lucky
to have him back for future camps.
If you would like more information on Cameron’s volunteer work, feel free to contact me at
email@example.com or by phone at (480) 428-8003.
