I hope this young lady continues to improve and catch the eye of BYU coaches. She's exactly the kind of kid that deserves an opportunity with that kind of determination and willingness to work hard to improve herself. She could be the equivalent of a Ziggy Ansa in women's basketball. Again, I hope BYU is looking and consider giving her a chance.

Great to see a person making the best of the opportunities this great country has to offer. I am sure she will get better with time. The best thing is that she is doing well in the classroom... that is the real American dream. Work hard and the opportunities will present themselves.

Who else went to Highland? Jeff Judkins. Oh and me.
