Heat Elite Top Recruit Stays Hungry!

Heat Elite Top Recruit Stays Hungry!

Brooklyn Gray has stayed humble and hungry since day 1! Great clip from her trainer Tim Bailey pushing Brooklyn outside of her comfort zone. Always in the gym working on her game and stays in the weight room working on her body physically and mentally! This is a nice glimpse into the mindset of Division 1 recruit Brooklyn Gray from Auburn High school and on our Rockford Heat Elite team. Brooklyn is in the Class if 2022, as a 6’ guard that can play multiple positions on the offensive side, she is constantly looking for ways to get her teammates involved too.

Brooklyn has multiple D1 offers currently and it’s easy to see why. College coaches looking for a high level guard that can play multiple positions should get in contact ASAP!

Great job Brooklyn! Keep up the hard work!
