FORT LORAMIE — Fort Loramie High School recently held its basketball camp at the school, and it was highlighted by an appearance by former University of Findlay standout Josh Bostic.

There were 109 campers taking part in the camp, run by head Fort Loramie boys basketball coach Corey Britton.

“It was a lot of fun and our kids did a great job,” said Britton. “Josh (Bostic) is a good friend of mine and came down on Tuesday of the camp to speak to the kids.”

Bostic played high school ball for Columbus Westland before going on to an outstanding career at Findlay, where he was the 2009 Great Lakes Athletic Conference Player of the Year and the Division II national player of the year after leading the Oilers to an undefeated regular season and the No. 1-ranking in the country.

He then led the Oilers to the national championship and a perfect 36-0 record.

After college, he had stints in the D-League, and also played professionally overseas. This past season, he was with the Detroit Pistons for training came before playing in the D-League again and finishing up in Belgium.

“When Josh spoke to our kids, he spoke about three things that not only will make you a great basketball player, but a better person,” said Britton. “One, good grades. You can’t do anything on the floor or off the floor without a proper education. Two, Know your role. Know what is expected of you on and off the floor. And three, ‘have fun! have fun! have fun!’

“Our kids really enjoyed Josh,” Britton added.
