Fellowship Christian School senior Roger Rickman has been selected to participate in the All-Star Classic basketball game, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. March 15 at Blessed Trinity Catholic School.

Rickman, who netted a game-high 20 points in FCS’ state playoff loss (55-42) to North Cobb Christian School in Kennesaw on Feb. 25, averaged 15.1 points and 5.3 assists per game this season. 

He shot 90% from the foul line to lead Single A players in the state, and shot 50% from 3-point range to finish third in the state.

“Roger had a great season,” said Head Coach Mark Rickman, who is also 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 younger Rickman helped the Paladins finish 15-12 this season to match the school record for victories in a season. FCS went 15-12 in 2011-12, Roger’s second season with the program, to set the record.

Rickman scored 452 total points to give 1,431 career points. It is the most in FCS school history since the Paladins moved to GHSA.

On the 15th, the girls all-star game will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Blessed Trinity.

Starting at noon on March 15, all all-stars will be invited to participate in a basketball combine event where players will be measured and tested in a series of speed/agility tests. 

The results will be compiled into individualized player profile pages, which gauge player ability. These statistics can be used to send to potential colleges as a potential recruiting tool.

Earlier this winter, Rickman was named All-Region First Team for 6A. He is also among the 10 recipients off a 2014 Naismith Awards Flourish Scholarship.
