Athlete Spotlight January 1 2016

Colorado Hawks unsigned 6’2 Combo Guard, Jervae Robinson had quite a month in December.  Jervae Robinson is the epitome of a student-athlete with a 3.3 GPA and 23 ACT score. 

Jervae is a member of the current Colorado State Defending Champion and #7 Nationally Ranked Overland (Aurora, CO) Trailblazers.  In December, the undefeated Overland Blazers traveled to Las Vegas, NV to compete in the Tarkanian Classic.  Jervae helped the Blazers win the Platinum Division of the Tarkanian Classic Tournament averaging 18.5 points over the four games – 19 points v Long Beach (CA) Poly, 21 points v Ft. Lauderdale (FL) Dillard, 18 v Bingham (UT) and 16 Points v Bishop Gorman (NV).  Jervae’s output against excellent competition during the tournament earned him the Tarkanian Classic Tournament MVP.

The success Jervae is experiencing is not a coincidence.  The unsigned Senior was a staple in the successful summer of the Colorado Hawks 17U team.  Jervae helped the 17U team to a 26-10 record with 1 Sweet 16 appearance,  3 Final Four appearances, and 1 Championship game against some extremely talented adidas Gauntlet Series teams across the Nation.

Jervae Robinson has also performed extremely well in the West Coast Elite Showcases based in Denver, CO.

So far in his final high school season, Jervae is averaging 16.7 Points, 3.7 Rebounds, 3.0 Assists, and 2.6 Steals per game for 7-0 Overland HS.
