Ransom Receives Honorable Mention All American Distinction
04/09/2013

Earlier in the season he was named KJCCC Player of the
Week, then NJCAA Player of the Week, before becoming a member of the
illustrious 1,000 point club, and being named to the All-Jayhawk and
All-Region teams, but Monday, Seward County sophomore Kaheem Ransom
received the pinnacle award from the NJCAA as he was named an
All-American. 

                Ransom was named an Honorable Mention NJCAA All-American
by national officials in a release on Monday.  Ransom becomes the 8th
player in Seward County Men's Basketball history to receive the honors,
following in the footsteps of such legends as Carlo Walton, Kevin
Houston, and Jamal Brown who were the first three Saints to be named
All-Americans. 

                Ransom led the Saints to their third straight Jayhawk
West title in 2013, averaging a team best 16.5 points per game.  He led
Seward in assists in 2012-2013 with 86 as well as three pointers made
with 76.  He was also durable for the Saints during his sophomore
season, battling through injuries to play in all 33 games, one of just
three players to do so.  He played a team high 34 minutes per game at
the point for Seward and played 37 minutes or more in the Saints final 7
games of the season. 

                 He was one of three Jayhawk West players to receive
All-American honors as Region VI Player of the Year Kadeem Allen was a
1st team selection and highly touted Barton guard Algie Key was a 3rd
team pick. 

                Ransom's selection as an All-American now means that the
Seward County Men's Basketball program has had an NJCAA All-American in
three straight seasons, Jeremy Jones in 2010-2011, Deverell Biggs in
2011-2012, and Ransom in 2012-2013, marking the first time in school
history that the Saints have had All-American's in three straight
seasons.
