Roadrunners sign 2, add walk-on
The Roadrunners have signed three more student athletes for the 2011-2012 school year.
A.J. Burton, a 6’ guard, comes to SFCC from Raytown High School in Raytown. Burton helped lead his team to a 14-12 record as a senior while playing for Coach Brandon Weis. He averaged 9.3 points and 3.1 assists his senior year. He also contributed 2.6 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game.
Burton plans to major in engineering. He will walk on at SFCC.
“A.J. will compete for playing time in the back court as a freshman,” said Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Thomas.
Kenny Chery, a 6’ guard from Montréal, Quebec, comes to SFCC from Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, D.C. He averaged 13 points a game as a senior while playing for Head Coach Michael Adams. Chery also played in the Canadian Games against other top high school prospects in Canada.
“He can shoot the ball well,” said Thomas. “He’s pretty good off the bounce and can score in a variety of different ways. He should be a good player for us.”
Fredrick Wilson, a 6’ 2” guard, is a sophomore transferring from Seattle University in Seattle where he played in 19 games coming off the bench. He averaged 2.1 points per game playing for Head Coach Cameron Dollar.
Wilson played prep basketball at Franklin High School in Seattle where he helped his team to three state tournament appearances. Franklin finished third in 2007, fifth in 2008 and won a state championship in 2009.
He led his team to a 28-1 record as a senior. Wilson averaged 10.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.8 steals, and 1.7 assists per game in his final prep season. He was named MVP of the Northwest Shootout, a game featuring the top high school seniors in Washington and Oregon. He scored a game-high 24 points in the shootout.
“Wilson is going to provide leadership,” said Thomas. “We have a pretty young team. He’s one of the players who has been through it for a year, so we’re definitely looking for him to step up and be a team leader.”
