WMBD/WYZZ-TV - PEORIA, Ill. - Derrick and David Booth have their names on the camp but they know who the kids are watching this week.

The Booth Academy camp at the RiverPlex is hosted by the Booth brothers. Derrick is the highly successful basketball coach at Manual High School while David is the director of scouting for the NBA's New Orleans Pelicans.

But Derrick thinks it's his former players serving as camp coaches that are getting the adoration of the 200 participants.
