On Thursday February 25th I attended the 4A Estrella Foothills at 4A American Leadership Academy-Queen Creek.  


Here were some observations from the two games I viewed:

#1 ALA-QC and Estrella Foothills have a lot of size in their programs. 

#2 One soph and one junior from Estrella Foothills stood out in the JV game.

Cooper Vanderhei Cooper Vanderhei 6'6" | PF Estrella Foothills | 2023 State AZ Estrella Foothills 

-The soph forward moves well from end to end and definitely looks the part. He has a good motor to rebound the ball and a good IQ for the game. He blocks shots in his area and is a two-sport athlete as he plays baseball as well. 

Jacob Harding Jacob Harding 6'8" | C Estrella Foothills | 2022 State AZ Estrella Foothills 

-High level rebounder and shot blocker. He moves well for his size end to end. He is raw on offense but will usually stick to what he does best, which is his inside scoring and defending. 

#3 Two sophs from ALA-QC stood out in the JV game.

-A competitive combo guard has floater game and hits the 3. The lefty has a good feel for the game and gives a hard ball
