On Saturday, he held the Corey Brewer Youth Basketball Camp at Portland High School.

“For me, it’s great,” Brewer said. “Just to see the kids, I like it. Coming home … I love coming back to Portland.

“It’s always good when the kids look up to me. It lets the kids know that even though you’re from Portland, you can do bigger things.”

“A lot more kids are coming,” Brewer said. “The kids are taking it more serious. At first, I think some people were like, ‘let’s go see Corey Brewer.’ Now, kids come and are trying to learn something. A lot of kids are interested in basketball. It’s good for Portland High School. We need kids to get interested early.”
