Basketball Spotlight Feature: Mikey Esquillin AKA "The Engine"

Mikey Esquillin (Wall 2 Wall)  

Wall 2 Wall has emerged as one of the top 7th Grade teams in the region and no player exemplifies this success like Mikey Esquillin. Esquillin plays like the heart and soul of this squad and leaves everything on the floor. His play helped W2W reach the finals of the Tip Off Classic. 

Mikey plays with a motor that few young players possess and his coach Chuck Rockmore couldn’t agree more. “Mikey doesn’t back down from any challenge. He’s willing to attack the rim and gives his all on the defensive end. In terms of improvement I think he needs to work on his midrange game to prepare him for the next level” said Rockmore. 

In terms of Mikey’s future on the high school level Rockmore is confident in his young point guard. “I see Mikey playing varsity as a freshman and getting meaningful minutes. He currently plays for the freshman team as a 7th Grader” he finished. Mikey and his W2W will be at the MLK Classic in Pennsylvania. Basketball Spotlight will keep you posted on his progress.
