Siddeeq Shabazz

Siddeeq, who grew up underprivileged himself in Chaparral, decided to combine his passion, talents, and expertise to create a venue for our community to rally together around our youth, especially those without resources. Out of this desire, SouthWest’s Finest was birthed.


SWFinest’s mission is (1) to create more opportunities for local student athletes to be recruited to college and (2) to improve pathways to higher education for student athletes by creating greater access to quality educational resources.


The organization aims to offer the finest educational, position specific training, and coaching resources through quarterly camps and leagues beginning with Siddeeq’s first passion – football.
