◊ According to Cedar Hill coach Andrea Robinson: “It’s hard to find girls that are 6-2, 6-3 that are as athletic and move the way that Ebony does. She runs like nothing I’ve ever seen for a girl that size. She’s just phenomenally athletic. It’s unbelievable when you watch her. She has such a long wing span but she also can run and jump like you just don’t see 6-2, 6-3 girls do.”
