Abby Lundquist Commits Daemen College!

Abby Lundquist Commits Daemen College!

Congrats to Senior Abby Lundquist(Rochelle High), who has officially committed to accept an academic and athletic scholarship to play for Daemen College, NCAA Div 2-East Coast Conference. Abby is a strong PG/Shooting Guard that has lead Rochelle in scoring all four years. Abby has set the All Time Rochelle High scoring record with 1,909 points. Basketball fans in the Rock River Valley should be well aware that Abby never played for the Rockford Heat AAU program. However, when recruiting was completely stopped and did not go as Abby had hoped, Rockford Heat was contacted and asked to help a top 815 athlete and Rockford Heat responded and continued to connect athletes with college coaches around the country. Abby will major in Pre Physicians Assistant while playing basketball. Good luck on the rest of your Senior

year.

Great Job Abby, all Rockford Heat Coaches, Players, Parents, Alumnae, and Fans are proud of you!

Heat Elite 17U Player Named USJN All Star!

Heat Elite 17U Player Named USJN All Star!

Shout out to Heat Elite Mariah Hill(Rockford East, Class of 2020)for being named USJN Pool “B” All Star Team this past weekend at the USJN Midwest Qualifier tourney held in Lynwood IL. Mariah had missed all of last July and is picking up were she left off. At 5’6” she continues to be one of the most fiercest defenders in the floor, her strong build allows her to guard anyone! Mariah will look to attack offensively or pull up the 3 ball. College Coaches looking for a very intense guard with court vision, IQ, and finishes left or right should get in contact ASAP! Mariah missed all recruiting last summer and is a under recruited prospect.

Great job Mariah , keep up the hard work!

Shout out to Heat Freshman Brooklyn Gray(Auburn High School) for being selected USJN Pool “I” All Star Team this past weekend at the USJN Midwest Qualifier tourney held in Lynwood IL. Brooke-Big guard who is very crafty around the basket. Has a high basketball IQ for her age. Tenacious Rebounder at the PG position. Matchup nightmare for smaller guards. Efficient scorer.

Brooklyn also picked up a very nice write up by Blue Star Media. “Brooklyn Gray – 2022 – 5-11 – Guard – Rockford Heat – Physically strong young guard…Solid build…Strong individual attack with the ball in her hands…Can get to the rim…Plenty of speed in transition…Explosiveness needs to catch up to a degree”-Blue Star Report
