Kayleigh Heckel, soon to start 9th grade, was offered a scholarship by UB Women's Basketball Coach Felisha Legette-Jack. Heckel has played one year of varsity basketball at Port Chester, NY where she averaged ... get this ... 27.5 points per game ... as an eight grader!!
Here is a highlight reel of her eight grade performances: https://youtu.be/jEIHxV1DDnw The highlights start with Heckel knocking down 25-30 foot shots with ease, but keep watching, when the defense collapses on her, she can make great passes to open teammates or dribble into the paint and score, sometimes with a Stephanie Reid like eurostep. And the last play on the video, she blocks a last-second shot that would potentially tie the game, grabs the rebound and then dribbles out the clock, 1-on-3. Holy Cow!
