For the first time in its history, Camelot Academy of Escambia County has a basketball team!

“We created the team as an incentive for positive behavior and for the students who are demonstrating excellence in the classroom,” said Camelot executive director Mr. Drew Stem.

Students are referred to Camelot by Pensacola middle and high schools to get them back on course to advance, and in the case of high school students move on to better things after high school. Because the students don’t typically stay at Camelot for more than a year, forming a team is more challenging but it is something students had asked for and earned.

The Camelot team competes in the Deliverance of Tabernacle Youth Intramural Basketball League and plays against other middle school and high school teams throughout Escambia County.

The team is coached by Camelot administrators Andrew Maxwell II, Reginald Lindsey, Drew Stem, Christopher Wooten, and David Williams II.
