COACH WOOD INVITATIONAL
“Kamari is the model competitor and team leader. During the past four years of competing against him, he has always given his best effort despite the conditions and circumstances, or when things may or may not be going his way. He is as humble as they come and strives to lift his teammates up to higher levels of success. Kamari’s dominating senior season came after a junior season that did not live up to his own expectations. Instead of giving up, he persevered and used it to fuel him to become a better version of himself.”
