The following quote is a response to the article “Colorado Hawks and Billups Elite are Colorado’s only shoe-sponsored boys traveling teams” written by Nick Graham.

The Hawks don’t hold tryouts and pretty much hand pick players from the cream of the crop in Colorado. I have to give them a lot of credit because they know what type of player they need compete with on the national level and who they want to bolster their roster. From what I’ve seen they only make 1 maybe 2 roster changes/additions for a team on any given year. Year in year out this is the most elite team in CO for a HS kid to play for. They are sponsored by Adidas and play on the Adidas Gauntlet Tour & typically fair quite well. The Hawks have a national reputation and their teams always get good college looks at the top national tournaments. They practice hard and often during the AAU season under great coaching which some other programs do as well but not all. If your son is skilled and fortunate enough to get the call and the opportunity to play with the Hawks take it would be my advice!!!! – anonymous
