Thank You!

As the 2017 Spring/Summer/Fall/Winter(runs March 2017-Feb 2018) seasons come to an end for the Rockford Heat Boys and Girls Basketball Club, I would to take this time to thank all the coaches that put their time and effort into each and every one of the players this season. Most of these coaches have become very close friends of mine, and I can’t tell you how much time and energy they put towards the players in the program to help them reach their full potential. First I would like to start with the Boys side: Coaches Dave Buelow, Jake Rousch, Mike Jamerson, JC Coleman, Eric Calvert, Scott Britnell, Avery Johnson and Scott Wigton. On the Girls Side: Robert Bankes, Veto Santini, Cary Proper, Mike Jamerson, Jeff Fago, Chris Hare, Jesse Schiro, Bill Lavery, Dave Guse, Eric Calvert, Wendy Lambrigtsen, Scott Wigton, and the many assistant Coaches for all the teams. This year has been unprecedented in growth in numbers and collegiate athletes. As we grow, the Club will continue to learn from our mistakes and improve in the areas that have been weak.

Thank you to our Premier Sponsors: Painters District Council #30, Northwestern IL Building Trades, IBEW Local 364, Teamsters Local 325, Advanced Disposal, Winnebago County States Atty Joe Bruscato, and Rockford Lutheran High. With your help, Rockford Heat has helped athletes achieve over 4.1 million in college scholarships for our athletes to play college basketball while studying for their education.
