    CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (NEWSPLEX) -- On Sundays things heat up at the Peabody School in Charlottesville. That's where community teams come together and show off their basketball skills. But it's one person who puts up numbers more than anybody on the court

    "He comes down from Culpeper every week," says Damien Banks, Founder of Banks College Basketball Association, "And he kills guys, he destroys them."

    He's talking about Ross Williams, the leading scorer of the BCBA, and founder of Let's Get Better Basketball.

    "I do basketball everyday, says Williams, "basketball can give you a bunch of different life lessons each and everyday."

    And if you need a lesson on resilience Ross is the man to see. While playing college basketball he experienced a string of headaches and later learned that he had a non-cancerous brain tumor which stopped him dead in his tracks.

    "It felt more like a dream, I thought I was still sleeping because you just wake up and you can't feel your legs. I was very scared but at the same time I thought it wasn't real.

    But it was very real. So real that he had to re-learn how to walk, run, and jump. He defeated the odds and managed to start Lets Get Better Basketball, where he teaches the youth about basketball development.

    "A lot of kids don't have that luxury of being able to go to Maryland where they have a lot of trainers or be able to go to D.C. where they have a lot of trainers so I decided to bring a different environment to Culpeper."

    And eventually to Charlottesville where he will team up with Damian Banks for a basketball camp to teach kids in central Virginia life lessons and of course how to ball.

    It's very important for the growth of basketball and for the growth of the community being that we got something for the guys to do and something for the ladies to do.

    Ross Williams teaches kids from 5 and up. If you want to learn more about his basketball training click on the link in this web story.
