Athlete of the Week: Dede Sheppard - March 12th

Posted: Updated:

Dede Sheppard has found a passion for basketball. Her love for the game helped her guide the North Caddo Lady Rebels to the Class 2A state championship. 

"Everybody wanted it," said Sheppard, about winning a title. "We wanted to go get it and we had the mentality and I surely didn't want to fall short my senior year."

Sheppard scored 24 points for the Lady Rebels during their 80-74 win over Doyle. She was named the game MVP.

"From the way she's played this year as far as leadership, scoring and defensively we knew that there was a very good shot that she was going to get MVP so it was very nice and it was a great honor for her because she deserves it," said Angela Channell, co-head coach at North Cadoo.

Sheppard said the moment still really hasn't hit her.

"It's very bittersweet I must say being a senior at North Caddo and playing my last game at the school that I'm going to be attending for the next four years."

She will attend McNeese State next year and play basketball for the Cowgirls.
