Dale Bonner is an elite student-athlete currently attending Shaker Heights High School in metropolitan Cleveland. Dale is just starting his ascent in the state of Ohio, but the 6’2 combo-guard is brimming with potential. Currently a member of The OBC AAU team, Bonner is a long and energetic prospect with excellent court vision, good shooting touch, and the ability to absolutely lock up on defense.
I. AAU & SELF ANALYSIS
EM: Congrats on the great Spring/Summer so, you turned some heads with your ability. Can you tell us how things went for OBC as a team and for you individually?
DB: As a team we accomplished our goal of winning the Adidas National Championship. Individually, I played my role and contributed when called upon. Personally I accomplished my goal and received a full college scholarship.

EM: Can you describe your game for those that are not familiar?
DB: I’m a combo guard who likes to dribble drive and finish at the rim or kick out to a teammate for an open shot. Also, if the defense sits back, I can knock down the open jump shot.
EM: How often do you work on your game?
DB: Everyday! When I’m not in the gym I have a personal trainer working on my strength and quickness.
