During his 34 seasons sitting at the head of the Camden girls’ basketball bench, the late Mike Culp and his life were open books. More often than not, the dean of area coaches was decked out in a (North) Carolina blue blazer and, sometimes, would wear a tie with depictions of the University of North Carolina Rams’ mascot scattered throughout. His Rockettes even took the court to the strains of the UNC fight song for home games.
