Scholarship offers piling up for CK's Alkins

Article by Joseph Staszewski

Times Ledger

Rawle Alkins isn’t fazed by having some of the nation’s best college programs and coaches getting in line for his services.

This is what he expected to happen and has been prepared for at Christ the King and by Royals assistant and New York Rens travel ball Coach Artie Cox.

“My coach told me to except stuff like this,” Alkins said. “My coach told me to expect to be known as one of the best when it is all said and done. He told me to expect high major offers.”

That is exactly what that 6-foot-4, 185-pound rising junior received after excelling at the Adidas Unrivaled camp in Chicago two weeks ago. Alkins, who has more than a dozen scholarship offers, picked up ones from

Rawle Alkins and Adonis Delarosa of Christ the King among members of Daily News all-city boys basketball team

Being named one of the five best boys basketball players in New York City isn't easy, and it's not an honor that comes overnight. It takes hard work and dedication. 

 

Here are the players we've selected as the best of the best, as well as the city's top coaches.

 

 

Rawle AlkinsChrist the King, Soph.

Think about what Alkins has already done in two seasons with the Royals and then try to think about how he can top it over his final two high school years. It won’t be easy but Alkins has the talent to go down as one of the city’s all-time greats. Already the owner of a pair of city championships and two state titles, Alkins fits in nicely among a group of Christ the King legends. It’ll be interesting to see where this

Adonis DelaRosa is NYDaily News Queens Player of the Year; Alkins and Atson Make First Team

Queens boys player of the year

 

Adonis Delarosa Christ the King, Sr.

In a city dominated by guards and wings, the appropriately named Adonis was a mammoth presence all season long.

 

The 6-11 senior constantly created matchup problems and every season has lost weight - he’s down about 100 pounds since his freshman year - improved his footwork and displayed deft touch. He was always the difference-maker for the Royals as a defensive force who averaged 12 points and 12 rebounds a game. His offensive range has grown to add a quality mid-range jumper that gives him the ability to put up 30-plus points.

 

The St. John’s recruit finished his high school career with back-to-back city and state Federation championships.

CK gets League Victory over TMLA

When Destiny Marino stepped to the plate with her team trailing Mary Louis 2-0, with two runners on the Christ the King senior wanted to make an impact. The ball she hit made an impact as it cleared the fence at Juniper Valley Park and cleared the bases. Christ the King took a 3-2 lead in the CHSAA contest.

TMLA would comeback and score 3 runs in the top of the last innning to take a 5-3 lead in to the last half inning. But the Royals did not quit. Junior Kaitlyn Finneran came through with the winning hit as Christ the King scored 3 times in the bottom of the frame and walked off with a 6-5 victory.

Men's JV fall in title game

On Saturday, the JV Royals took on Cardinal Hayes for the CHSAA "AA" Intersectional Title. 

The Royals would get off to a slow start, and play sloppy throughout. Tracey Cleckley, CK's leading scorer on the season, would be the only consistent threat as the Royals tried to stay in the game. Cleckley, though, after scoring 23 points, would foul out with four minutes to go in the fourth quarter. For his efforts, the Royals maintained just a ten point deficit, as Cleckley did all he could to keep CK in the game.

With Cleckley out, CK would look to others to step up their game. They found someone, in starting guard Ronald Jefferson. Jefferson would play the game of his life, hitting three three-pointers in the game's final three minutes.

The third quarter saw the Ravens charge back to knot the score at 52 heading into the 4th quarter. Both with the stakes raised, CK responded, outscoring the Ravens by a score of 27-22 in the 4th, to claim the championship.

CK finished the season with an overall 24-1 record, including a 16-1 record in the league. The victory over St. Rays was CK's second of the season. They had previously beaten St. Ray's in the bronx by a score of 69-67.
