Copeland Hustles His Way Into Playing Time for the 'Canes

Keaton Copeland has accomplished something few walk-ons do in the ACC; earned playing time.

According to Head Coach Frank Haith, "He practices hard and gives you everything he has," Haith said. "He gets his stuff done on effort and if you could put that into some of our other guys they'd be amazing. He's not athletically blessed, but the message I wanted to send to our guys is that if you play hard like Keaton you will play."

Copeland also hustles off the court. He was accepted into Harvard but chose to stay close to home where he has already earned degree in electrical engineering. In his spare time, he will help put together a basketball camp this summer.
