Carlisle, a native of Lisbon, has been coming to the SLU camp nearly every summer for the past 40 years, since he was a camper himself. “It’s great to see kids sitting where I was sitting,” he said. “It’s a reminder to me how fortunate I’ve been.” As a guest speaker at this year’s camp, Mr. Carlisle said he had a desire to speak to students in a broader sense, inspiring them to excel “in all endeavours, not just basketball.”
