EDMOND — When a basketball team goes 80-3 over the years a player was there, that athlete has made a profound impact on that particular program.

Not only did she/he leave a legacy athletically to have that type of success in Class 6A, but left a mark in a leadership capacity as well.

Cameerah Graves, Edmond Santa Fe’s standout guard who led 6A in assists her senior season with 129, signed a letter of intent with Oklahoma Baptist University last week.

“She smiles all the time,” said Santa Fe head coach Paul Bass at an emotional ceremony at Santa Fe High School. “She’s a great, great person. Has great parents; just what we look for in our program.”

Graves, an All-Stater, McDonald’s All-American nominee and the Metro Athletic Conference’s Defensive Player of the Year, started since her sophomore season and won two state titles and made a state Final Four in her career as a Lady Wolf.
