Recognition

Already dubbed a “phenomenon” while still a 8th grader, Estaban was invited to the illustrious Nike Camp in Chicago, where only 3 8th graders before him had been invited in the history of the camp. The camp featured the top 100 high schoolers in the country by invitation only. Estaban entered high school as the #1 freshman in the country. Although the first shot he ever took in a high school game was a “air ball”, he went on to have a very successful and productive career with first the Bishop Hartley Hawks and then the Independence 76ers where he was teamed with Kenny Gregory where they both achieved All-American honors in 1997. With such a lofty national rating, Estaban’s high school career was pressure packed as expectations were sky high. Every game was standing room only filled with fans wanting to see him play. His skills on the basketball court were undeniably legendary. Weaver ended up playing collegiate ball at nearby Central State.
