PrepAZ.com's first "Bustin Out Player of the Week" for 2003. Playing in the shadows of Kilby and Polk, Sr. PG Mickey Wheeler has emerged as their "Go To" guy for the 14-3 Thunder!
When it seems all the hype is targeted at underclassmen, the real gem comes in the form of an under appreciated, athletic PG from Desert Vista with the skills that could easily take him to the "Next Level". Over the last 5 games Wheeler has put up 9,14,27,10 & 15, but the glue that holds the Thunder together does much more than need to score. He makes his team better with his court savy and knock out 3's! Look for Wheeler to be be the key for Coach Al Merino's Thunder and a repeat visit to AWA.
Congratulations Mickey Wheeler on being selected our first "Bustin Out Player of the Week" for 2003!
