Cole Ready For Life In The Big 12 Conference
Aug. 14, 2012
FORT WORTH, Texas - Heading into her freshman season at TCU, Kamy Cole will begin a new chapter in her young life. The Brock native recently sat down with GoFrogs.com to share her thoughts on how her first summer in Fort Worth has gone and much more.
Cole, a three-time state tournament MVP, shined during her final season for four-time state champion Brock High School, posting three games of 40-plus, including a career-high 42-point game earlier this year. After so much success on the high school level, Cole has already begun to shift her focus on what lies ahead at TCU.
“It has been great so far. We have really done some good things working out together this summer,” said Cole. “We have been focusing on weights and getting stronger everyday. I think that will help my game tremendously because I won't get thrown around as much on the court.”
The DFW East/West All-Star girls basketball game participant, who was a Texas McDonald's All-American, earned numerous awards during her high school career, including district and state tournament MVP accolades, to go along with all-region and multiple all-state selections following her senior season. Cole, who garnered the prestigious TABC 2A Player of the Year honor, averaged 25.6 points per game, 8.8 boards per game and 3.6 assists per contest in her final year for Brock.
With the Horned Frogs beginning Big 12 Conference play at home against defending National Champion Baylor in January, Cole will continue a family tradition as her two older sisters Krystal and Kenzie played for Texas Tech and Oklahoma State, respectively.
“I have always wanted to go to a Big 12 school,” said Cole. “Two of my older sisters played for Big 12 Conference teams and I wanted to follow in their footsteps. I am really excited to have the opportunity to play in this conference.”
Cole, a four-star rated recruit, will don the Purple and White this season after ranking as the No. 46 overall rated guard nationally according to ESPN/HoopGurlz. She also ranked as high as the No. 14 rated player in the state of Texas according to Premier Basketball Report during the course of her senior season.
Cole, who has been praised by her teammates for being a tireless worker this summer, has also had a little time to enjoy life away from TCU’s campus before school begins on Aug. 20.
“I haven't had much free time this summer, but I did get to go to the Parker County Stock Show and Rodeo in June. I go every year and it is always a lot of fun. I showed market swine and crops. Its always my favorite time of the year.”
Cole, who was ranked No. 42 among all guards in the nation according to the Dan Olson Collegiate Girls Report, was a four-time all-state and all-region selection. Overall, Cole helped the Lady Eagles capture four different state championships in basketball and track and field, respectively. Cole, who states that her second love is track, captured the UIL Track and Field Championship in the girls 800 meters, clocking a personal-best time of 2:15.67 this past year. She closed out her track and field career with nine gold medals and three runner-up performances for Brock High School.
