Update: Brynn Cameron will resume collegiate basketball career
Update: Additional quotations added.
Originally posted July 20: After taking off the entire season last year, University of Southern California guard Brynn Cameron plans to return to her former basketball team this fall. The 21-year-old says that although "it will be a lot of work," she hopes her play will "set a good example" for 9-month-old Cole, her son with ex-boyfriend and Arizona Cardinals Quarterback Matt Leinart.
Although Brynn had always wanted to be a mother — often babysitting the young child of her assistant coaches, and spending lots of time with her 18-month-old niece Drew — her own pregnancy was unplanned, and the idea of impending motherhood took some getting used to.
As for Cole’s dad, Brynn’s outlook is decidedly less rosy.

The single mom appears to take umbrage at recent statements by Matt — whom Brynn says "comes and goes whenever he wants" — that it is "the little things" about fatherhood he loves the most.
