St. Ray's Sophomore Shows Promise

Reporter Mike Sullivan puts together a story on Kevin Parrom ...

St. Raymond's head coach Oliver Antigua continues to do a great job in putting together a team that utilizes its chemistry at the key time of the season -- playoff time.

While St. Raymond's battled Christ The King this afternoon at Fordham University in the Bronx, N.Y. for the CHSAA Intersectional title, the Ravens feature several division one prospects. Among them: 6-foot-5, 180-pound sophomore forward Kevin Parrom.

Parrom has impressed the reporters on this website on a few occasions. The most recent game was this past week when St. Raymond's rallied to overcome a 19-point deficit to defeat Holy Cross High School in a semifinal game held inside Carnesecca Arena on the campus of St. John's University.

Reporter Brian Towey has also watched Parrom play over the past couple of months. Here is Brian's review of Parrom's individual game: Kevin was again impressive on the offensive end. He did most of his damage early, scoring 13 of his 17 points in the first half and collecting six rebounds.

Parrom showed the ability to shoot it from a number of spots on the floor, connecting on a baseline turnaround, a turnaround from nine feet, and a 15-footer, and doing some damage in transition. He continues to impress with his face-up game in an increased role as a sophomore.

Here is Mike Sullivan's Review: Parrom showed a balanced offensive game. He didn't panic under defensive pressure and shows the ability to be a player that can produce points from different spots on the floor. Only a sophomore, Kevin has two more full seasons to polish his individual game.

It will be interesting to see how he performs this spring and summer on the AAU circuit. It looks like Antigua has another player that will produce over the next couple of seasons in the very competitive New York City Catholic League.

The area schools have already been keeping an eye on Parrom.
