Fellowship senior Rickman chosen for all-star basketball classic



ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Fellowship Christian High School senior Roger Rickman was selected to participate in the All-Star Classic basketball game March 15 at Blessed Trinity High School.

Rickman scored a total of 452 points, with an average 15.1 points and 5.3 assists per game this season.

He shot 90 percent from the foul line, leading region single-A players in the state, and 50 percent from beyond the three-point stripe, ranking third in the state.

His highest total score for a game was 20 points in FCS’s state playoff against North Cobb Christian School in Kennesaw on Feb. 25.

Overall, he scored a total of 1,431 points throughout his high school career. This total is the most in FCS history since the school joined the Georgia High School Association.

Rickman also helped the Paladins finish 15-12 during his second season with the team, matching the school record for victories in a season.

Earlier this winter, Rickman was named All-Region First Team for the 6A region.

He is also among the 10 recipients of the 2014 Naismith Awards Flourish Scholarship, an award for high school senior basketball players.

“Roger had a great season,” said head coach Mark Rickman, Roger’s father. “He was very consistent, and was a true leader. He had more steals than turnovers for the third year in a row. That is a great accomplishment.”

The results of the All-Star Classic basketball game will be compiled into individualized player profile pages to gauge ability.

These statistics can be used to send to potential colleges as a potential recruiting tool.
