BRIAN TOWEY'S VIEW ON KEVIN PARROM'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Kevin has been impressive on the offensive end. Parrom has shown 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.
MIKE SULLIVAN'S VIEW ON KEVIN PARROM'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Kevin Parrom has demonstrated he can provide a balanced offensive game. He doesn'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.
CONCLUSION: Kevin Parrom plays hard all the time. He recorded 10 points and grabbed 13 rebounds at the recent NIKE Super Six event held at Madison Square Garden. He was given the sportsmanship award in St. Raymond's tough loss to St. Patrick High School.
Kevin plays for a terrific coach in Oliver Antigua so it's likely his individual game will continue to progress. In addition, St. Raymond's plays a very competitive schedule so Parrom will have a chance on a weekly basis to improve his game against some of the best players in the area.
