Colorado Hawks Spotlight Player – Michaela Onyenwere (2017)

Michaela has separated herself from a talented stock of women Colorado basketball players. The 6’0″ Junior Guard/Forward is an extremely athletic player who is relentless.  She is currently ranked #28 prospect and 6th ranked player at her position with a 4 Star Grade.   She has been named Gatorade Colorado Player of the Year for two consecutive years (2015 and 2016).  She averaged 24.4 points, 10.3 rebounds and 4.0 steals per game this past season.  In addition, Michaela led her Grandview High School team to a 24-1 record losing to the eventual Colorado State Champions.

As a member of the Colorado Hawks, Michaela has been exposed to several camps specifically, the adidas 3Stripe camps which are designed to help create exposure and provide instruction by some of the best talent evaluators in the nation.  A recent elevator had this to say about Michaela, “adidas Nationals-July 2015: Explosively athletic perimeter performer handles, drives and finishes with body control to rim; triple-threat attack breaks down, elevates over defender; adding a consistent mid-range game to the arc brings elite status; among the most athletic prospects in the class of 2017. (Olson) ”

Even more impressive than her on-court accomplishments, Michaela is an honor student.

A few of her accolades:

2016 Gatorade Colorado Player of the Year
2016 Ms. Colorado Basketball
2015-16 CHSAA (Colorado High School Athletic Association) Player of the Year
2015-16 CHSAA First Team
2015 Gatorade Colorado Player of the Year
2014 -15 CHSAA First Team
