Tuttle’s Allie Rehl Athlete Spotlight Presented by Patriot Heat and Air

You could say Allie Rehl wrote her own story.

The Tuttle High School senior led the Tigers to a 26-3 record on 14.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.4 steals per game last season and recently signed to continue her basketball career at Oklahoma Baptist University. She won’t be the first of her family to play at the collegiate level — nor at OBU.

“When I was probably 7, I would go to my sister’s [OBU] basketball practice and shoot on the side goals, and one day, coach Bo [Overton] was up at the gym, and he told me he wanted me to come play for him some day,” Rehl said. “As I started developing my game and becoming a better player, coach Bo had followed me along the whole way. When I got offered, I just had a feeling that this was the place for me. It didn’t even take me a day to think about it.”

Though Rehl’s father and three older siblings all played basketball at the collegiate level, her basketball future wasn’t necessarily a given, but she knew she wanted to play at the next level. It took work to become the exceptional three-level scorer and defensive show-stopper she became.

“I knew that this would not come easy. I could not have gotten where I am without my dad, who has spent countless hours in the gym with me. My family, coaches and teammates that I have had over the years have helped me to become the best person and player I can be,” Rehl said, “and I couldn’t even think about accomplishing any of my goals without God.”

Her faith is extremely important to Rehl. She’s thankful to be able to bond with her teammates over similar values.

“At Tuttle, we are a very close team, and I think a big part of why we are close is because we pray for each other and talk about God with each other,” Rehl said. “Many of us will even go to church together. I pray before every game and we always pray as a team before every game. The power of prayer is powerful and we have seen it work within our team.”

This year, Rehl and her teammates will need that unbreakable bond to achieve a rare accomplishment in reaching the state tournament for a fifth consecutive year.

“Allie is our leader, best scorer, and most experienced player we have,” Tuttle head coach Jamie Combs said. “We have a committee of good players who will be contributing in various ways this year. Our team will have a different feel, but we are looking forward to competing at the highest of levels in our class.”
