Congrats to Shelby Hilton!
Adapted from ISU’s site:
Idaho State signs Shelby Hilton who hails from Cedar Hills, Utah and is a senior at Pleasant Grove High School. The 5-5 defender is a four-year letterwinner and has been named Defensive MVP each season of her career. In her senior season, she was named all-region honorable mention.
Hilton most recently played for La Roca. She served as the team captain for the Celtic Storm from 2008-2012. Her La Roca 95 Premier team is ranked 194th in the country and fifth in the state of Utah. Her club teams have won the 2012 La Roca Cup Tournament (La Roca 95 Premier) and the 2012 Ice Breaker Tournament (Celtic Storm).
“Shelby is a fierce and dynamic outside back,” Gibson said. “She reminds me a lot of current Bengal, Vanessa Cabilan, in the sense that she has a knack for reading the play of an attacker. She is tough and pops right back up after tackles which will serve her well at the collegiate level. We are looking forward to having Shelby join our strong group of defenders.”
Hilton is a competitor on the field and in the classroom as she sports a 3.85 GPA and has been on the honor roll all four years of high school. She was also a Viking Scholar Award recipient in 2010. She is the daughter of Craig and Sharon Hilton and has three sisters, Jordan, Micall and Hadley.
