Abuhamdeh Paces North Royalton in Win

Omar Abuhamdeh-2021
Finishing with a game-high 36 points, North Royalton’s Omar Abuhamdeh (5’6/P/SG/2021) paced his 7th grade squad to a 59-58 victory over Barberton Middle School this past Tuesday. Trailing by 17 points late in the 4th quarter, Abuhamdeh’s six treys proved to be the catalyst in the win.  Abuhamdeh is no stranger to success, as evidenced by standout performances at past Buckeye Prep Elite Showcases, and most recently Ty Kish’s Middle School TV Camp in October. Abuhamdeh’s stock is currently on the rise, as his reputation has garnered him both statewide and national recognition.  In fact, the Buckeye Prep Report lists him as a potential top 10 player in the class of 2021 in the state.

Abuhamdeh is strong, skilled and possesses an elite motor.  He’s not just a catch and shoot threat, as he’s more than capable of shooting off the bounce and off picks. A solid handle and excellent vision makes him a excellent player maker as well. Blessed with solid stroke from the perimeter, Abuhamdeh also excels at powering his way to the bucket.  Below is video footage of Abuhamdeh in a recent middle school game. This past summer, Abuhamdeh split time between SMAC and the Bedford Raiders. We plan to continue tracking Abuhamdeh’s development.
