The talented Harrison senior is off to a great start to her season. She is currently in the top 5 for most of the top statistical categories in the state of Colorado.

"I feel like every game I want to put everything out on the floor," explained Moore-Allen. "Honestly, I feel like I do not get as much recognition as I should. But I like knowing that I am top in the state. Most people do not know who I am but I still love it."

Yet Moore-Allen is more than just basketball.

"If I am not on the court, I am drawing," said Moore-Allen with a grin. "And when I am on the court, it is the same feeling as when I am drawing. Its a nice balance."

So no matter how this season ends for Amyah - she is drawing up her future with the Panthers, either with a pen or a ball.
