BYU's Collinsworth to hold camp in Rigby

Rigby, IDAHO - NCAA record holder and former BYU basketball player Kyle Collinsworth has announced a summer camp in his mom's hometown of Rigby.

"I think it will be fun," Collinsworth told Sports Line. "She says she had a lot of records there. That’s what I’m known for, too. It will just be fun to see where she learned the game of basketball."

Collinsworth played four seasons with the Cougars and left school in 2016 as the NCAA's all-time leader for triple-doubles with 12 in his career. He played in the NBA Development League during the 2016-17 season for the Texas Legends, an affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks.

"Just teach them everything that I’ve learned," Collinsworth noted. "Looking back, there’s so many things I wish I knew as a kid. How to take better care of your body as far as stretching and nutrition. Drills you can do to get better. Basically I want to take everything I’ve learned from high school level, from college level at BYU and the professional level, and bring it back to the kids."

Collinsworth's mom, then known as Alissa Kinghorn, graduated from Rigby High School and played basketball at Ricks College.

"She was a big part of me getting to where I’m at in my career," Collinsworth said. "So, I thought it would be cool to go back there and put together a camp where kids can learn the game of basketball."

Collinsworth's camp runs three days at Rigby High School, beginning June 12. Three divisions are featured. One each for kids in grades 1-4 and 5-8. Plus a high school camp for freshmen through seniors. The high school and junior high camps cost $125, and the elementary camp costs $100.
