Indicated by the blue jersey she wears, professional basketball player La’Keisha Sutton represents the Harlem Globetrotters on the court. Being a native Trentonian, however, she embodies true Trenton pride in every step she takes both in life and during the games. “I am a proud product of Trenton,” said Sutton. “Since I left for college, I take pride in telling people I am from Trenton. Trenton Makes the World takes is our motto. I am proof of what happens when someone uses their gift, education and has a solid support system.”
The first female in New Jersey to be signed to The Harlem Globetrotters, Sutton, while pursing her career, still remains closely connected to her community. Prior to joining the Globetrotters, Sutton played professionally overseas in Taiwan, Finland, Ecuador, Germany, and Bulgaria from 2013-2016.
Sutton joined her first basketball team in the fourth grade where she played on an all-boys team. In high school, the McDonalds All American nominee led her team to back-to-back state championships (2007, 2008) and was named the MVP of the 2008 New Jersey State Championship. She set the Trenton Catholic Academy (N.J.) school record for most points in a single game with 36. Just 10 points shy of scoring 2,000 points, Sutton was the 2008 Gatorade Player of the Year. She was also named Trentonian Player of the Year, was a four-time all-Burlington county first-team selection and twice earned All-State honors from the Associated Press.
