With the recent expansion of the Colorado Hawks and the success of our recent tryouts, we are looking for quality coaches to lead teams on the middle school and high school levels. Please send your coaching resume to firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
After having a great conversation about the future of the University of Memphis' program, Coach Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway extended an offer to have Baye Fall continue his education and basketball development at the University of Memphis. Thank you Coach Hardaway for offering this opportunity to Baye Fall. #HawksFlight

Over the course of the spring, this group has played extremely well, supported each other, and challenged each other to compete at their highest level and it shows. Here is a recap of the season thus far.
For most players, once their senior season ends without them signing, their dreams of playing collegiate basketball begin to fade. However, the Colorado Hawks's experience is different. Every path may be different, but we try to position our players to be successful in achieving their dream. Since the end of their senior season, the Colorado Hawks have continued to provide the 2017 class a platform to earn a scholarship.
Here is our list of Class of 2017 signings:
Tyrei Randall - Rider University
Karamoko Cisse - Rider University
Calvin Fugett - Northwest College
Jeffrey Gary - University of North Carolina at Wilmington
Gaige Prim - West Texas A&M University
David Semintal - Montana State University at Billings
Shamiel Stevenson - University of Pittsburgh
Cheikh Mbacke Dioung - UNLV
Umar Diallo - Northwest College
Gaige Prim – 2017 – PF – Colorado Hawks Seniors
Prim is an old school post player with some impressive footwork. A patient big that will juke, fake, and pivot until his defender leaves his feet, Prim was very impressive down on the block in the semifinals. Prim has mastered the up-fake, reverse pivot, which left defenders in the dust. He was even effective against double teams and wasn’t flustered when guards came to dig or there was help coming from the weak-side. His rebounding was also outstanding. Any miss belonged to Prim and he was physical when guards tried to sneak a hand in and poke the ball loose.
David Simental – 2017 – G – Colorado Hawks
Putting together three solid performances to help the Hawks reach the title game on Sunday, Simental was steady when the pressure mounted. A 6-foot-2 combo guard, Simental shot the ball very well from the outside. He ran off screens hard and doesn’t need much space to snap off his shot. He was quicker than defenders anticipated and a better athlete as well. Simental took advantage of over-aggressive defenses and finished at the rim, including some impressive reverse layups in traffic. It’s late, but mid-major programs and certainly Division 2’s should take a look here.
The Colorado Hawks 16U Nation team earned an 8-2 record on the Adidas Gauntlet Series during the first two live periods which were in Dallas and Atlanta. The team also won the Consolation Championship in both stops. This team has consistently improved during each outing. We lost our first game in Dallas but, the Colorado Hawks 16U Nation team won four straight games in route to winning the Dallas Consolation Championship.
After a short stay at home, the 16U Hawks Nation traveled to Atlanta with a renewed desire to win, we fell in the first game again. However, just like the previous stop, we won four consecutive games to win the Atlanta Consolation Championship again.
Each player significantly contributed to our victories. Multiple players picked up additional interest, while others solidified the interest coaches have expressed in them.
We are headed to South Carolina in July!!
