College Scouts Attend Heat Open Gyms

College Scouts Attend Heat Open Gyms!

Rockford Heat has had multiple college coaches in their open gyms recently, however tonight’s visit from University of St Francis was “Special”! Tonight Coach Renee Martin-Assistant Coach for St Francis University was in the house. Renee Martin(Class of 2014, North Boone) was part of Rockford Heats first graduating class of Heat Alumnae. Coach Martin now is our first Rockford Heat college graduate to step into the ranks of coaching. John Penney has thisvto say-Coach Martin will always be one of the toughest, hardest working kids I have ever coached. To see Coach Martin back in the gym just brings tears to my eyes, said Wendy Lambrigtsen!

Coach Renee Martin, we wish you the best and have no doubt that you will be successful in your next Basketball journey.
