Bio

Mighty Mortimer is the 17th female player to join the Harlem Globetrotters in the team’s 92-year history. Her small frame, combined with her explosiveness on the court, earned her the nickname Mighty with the Trotters.

Mortimer attended Brown Mackie Junior College, where as a college freshman and sophomore, she was named All-Region XI and led the region in scoring, three-point, and free throw percentage.

Following her stint at Brown Mackie, she walked-on at Wichita State University where her hard work ethic and savviness with the ball earned her a scholarship to play with the Shockers.  Mortimer graduated with honors and earned a degree in Psychology at WSU.

About becoming a Globetrotter she says, “It’s been a dream of mine since I first began playing basketball. I was just a little girl from a small town hoping I’d be able to do this for a living one day.”

Fans would be surprised to know that she loves history, has a twin sister named Hailey, enjoys playing instruments, and writing poetry. One day she hopes to parley her skills to become a writer and motivational speaker.
