Bobby Hurley, Pat Tillman and Randall McDaniel: All Part of "Get To Know Q&A" of Cameron Sisk

Sep 3, 2020

Sun Devil Men's Golf All-Americans

Sun Devil junior golfer Cameron Sisk had a heck of a summer as he earned third-team All-America honors and then made a great run at the U.S. Amateur. A junior sports business major, he has made quite an impact in his first two years. In 2018-19 he was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year.

He got a great shout out from Jon Rahm when he signed in November of 2017 (Cam doesn't have Twitter now). At the time of the shutdown last spring, he was playing quite well, finishing second at the Lamkin Grips Tournament in San Diego in early March.

We plan to visit with each member of the team this fall and learn a little more about them. Things we found out? He is a Green Bay Packer fan and that he REALLY appreciates Howard Twitty.

Enjoy getting to know Cameron!
