Over the summer Isaac and his father, Lanny Thomas, have hosted basketball camps in Trion as a way of giving back to the community that had supported him over the course of his career.

Lanny Thomas has coached basketball for 20 years. Fourteen years as head coach at Trion, three as head coach at Lafayette and he was assistant coach at Chattooga for three years. Thomas is a member of the Elite 200 win club as a coach.

LThe dynamic father and son basketball duo worked together and taught skills and knowledge of the game during the summer at their basketball camps. “It went wonderfully! Isaac enjoyed working with the students as much as they enjoyed learning from him. I have had some parents tell me Isaac has a favorite fan now in their child,” commented Coach Thomas.
