Athlete of the Week: Cameron Gore, North Myrtle Beach

 

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Entering his third season, North Myrtle Beach head coach Perry Woolbright was riding a 22-game losing streak. His team responded though, and won their first game of 2012 over Waccamaw. The Chiefs would go on to win three more games that year, and nine this past fall including one in the playoffs. Cameron Gore spent time playing wide receiver during that entire turnaround, and says what they were able to accomplish is something to be proud of.
 
"For us to turn it around my senior year, for us to go to the second round in the playoffs, something we haven't done in a while is a great accomplishment and I'm glad that I was a part of it, all of my other teammates and coach Woolbright," Gore said.
 
On National Signing Day, The 6'1" senior committed to Limestone College, a Division II program with a first year football team starting this fall.
 
"I'm going there with one of my teammates Delonzo Williams," explained Gore. "He's been a brother to me since we (were) little kids in primary school. It's just a blessing and I couldn't ask for anywhere else to go."
 
A two time all-region wideout, he snagged 34 receptions for six touchdowns and more than 600 receiving yards, but admits that early on he contemplated just hanging up his cleats.
 
"I was thinking about quitting but then I had Coach Woolbright talk to me and he spoke to me and told me that football was something that I could really be good at and that's what made me want to work hard at it and from my sophomore year I've been wanting this opportunity to sign with a college," said Gore. "I've been working hard and it's just everything I could ask for."
 
But that's not all for Gore. While he has never missed a practice or workout session, he continues to impress off the field, volunteering more than 80 hours the past two years mentoring some of the elementary schoolers in the Little River and North Myrtle Beach area.
 
"I sit down and talk with them, asking them 'what's going on at home and in school'," said Gore. "I'll read them a book or something, play with them. Just mainly talk to them, tell them just the phases of life and what it brings."
