AD is perhaps best known in the area as a former basketball star for the Oregon Ducks (1995-2000) and a State Champion at Churchill in 1995. The 3-time team captain helped lead the Ducks to the NIT Final Four and NCAA Tournament in his final two seasons and he still ranks in the top 20 Ducks all time in scoring, rebounding, and 3pt shooting. After college, AD took his game overseas and competed at the professional level in more than 20 countries. Notable stops included playing stints in France, Belgium, Australia, and Germany. AD also was a All-League Selection and National Champion for FC Copenhagen (Denmark) in 2002.
Since returning home in 2006, AD and his brother Burdy, have hosted the Annual Smith Free Basketball Camp in Eugene. With the help of 40+ volunteers, the clinic hosts 250 local youth grades K-5th for a 1-day clinic every winter.
A link to sign up for the 2019 Annual Smith Free Basketball Camp will be posted on this page when the sign up is open on Thursday December 5th at 9am. Camp typically fills up on the first day so please sign up early on the 5th.
