Scouting Report

Cheyenne Parker is a great teammate and even better person to have on any club or team. She has the ability to push through any adversity – mentally, physically, whatever that might be, Parker is a fighter. Poised and composed, Parker is a responsible bet to have in your front court. This 6’4" forward can shot well over 53 percent from the field and can even extend her shot beyond the three-point line. Parker can operate out of the high post, athletic enough to drive to the rim or crash the boards and even has the perceptive to find teammates with the right pass. An ideal player that has grit.
