Rockford Heat Makes Headlines!

Great Story about the Rockford Heat Basketball Club!

I am so proud of all the athletes that have come through the program, sports is tough and basketball is one of the toughest. I am amazed every time I see a player push themselves outside of their comfort zone and continue to aspire to become better. There are so many stories I could tell you about ladies at the gym at 5am, players missing events because they have practice or a game, players usually sacrificing friendships because of extra time being spent on this game. These last two years of Varsity teams have prime examples of this. There is a saying in life that says "if it was easy-everyone would be doing it", well believe me, not everyone is doing basketball to this level of commitment! The list of players that have gone on to college is impressive, however the legacy that has been achieved is nostalgic. None of this would be possible without all the individuals that have stepped up with their support, time, and talents. We have had several coaches step up to the challenge and rise to the call in an effort to help young ladies succeed. usually sacrificing friendships because of extra time being spent on this game.

I can’t thank everyone enough for all the support that many have given!

Ladies, if you are ready to rise to the challenge and aspire to be the next player that signs or the next player that gets a phone call from a college coach, then remember what the athletes ahead of you have done to get to that level! It’s not easy, but you can do it!

I won’t list everyone that has helped along the way, but I must thank my good friend Darrin Golden for seeing this become reality and giving the support needed when times got tough. Our wives are just as important in this whole story as well! This has turned into an amazing story!

In closing, feel free to share this, tag people, comment, or forward to others! This is great for our youth and the ladies of Rockford Heat Varsity teams have literally put the 815 on the map. There is still good news to come, be on the lookout for more signing and commitments from some more Heat seniors soon!
