Kanayo Obi Rapu Jr. announced today that he will attend Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia and that means the New Garden Friends School Bear will soon become a Longwood Lancer….

Rapu Jr. was a lethal offensive weapon for the Bears at NGFS over the past several seasons and there have been numerous occasions where Obi, as we like to call him, went for 40-plus points and he was a constant threat from three-point range and as is the case with most deadly outside shooters, there have been times when this kid would catch on fire and he could not be stopped….

Love his game and the Longwood Lancers are very fortunate/lucky to be getting a kid of his character/caliber….He is very deep into his academic studies and maintains a strong balance between what happens in the classroom and what happens on the basketball court…

Best of luck and continued success to this young man Kanayo Obi Rapu Jr., as he crosses the state and goes into the Commonwealth of Virginia for his college basketball career…

Obi Rapu Jr. has attended and followed the teachings of Reverend Albert Som Pim Pong and Obi ought to in good shape both mentally, spiritually, and physically by the time he hits Longwood later on in the early part of the Summer of 2014……

Kanayo Obi Rapu, class of 2014, has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Longwood University.

Kanayo was a formidable point guard for the Bears at NGFS over the past several seasons and there have been numerous occasions where he scored 40-plus points. Obi-Rapu is an athlete, but he will be remembered as a well-rounded respectful young man who was much an athlete, a scholar and a friend.

For Kanayo’s senior service project, he is planning to gather a formidable group of talented basketball players from the local area to play in an exhibition match in memory of their teammate and friend Josh Level who died last year for myocarditis. The event is planned for May 2nd.
