Mr. Caye goes on to say Ozanam was instrumental in my development as a youth because the experience and competition provided me a bench- mark and motivation to give my best all the time to be a team player and in the process, I learned a lot about diverse individuals, including myself.

The highlights of my days playing at the OZ were the summer basketball championships with St. Clair Village and Zonk 5, since we had some of the finest players in those lineups from the City and Catholic leagues. Also, playing for the AAU teams coached by Chuck Franklin and John Miller traveling and placing in the top 5 in the nation, with teammates like Major Harris and Rocky White.
