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 Menís 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.
Ransomís selection as an All-American now means that the Seward County Menís 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-Americanís in three straight seasons.
