2 - Published April 29, 2010 by in High School

This oughta get 412 fired up. City high school standout Aron Nwankwo talks basketball and lacrosse with the Baltimore Sun:

Aron Nwankwo has gotten a lot of mileage out of his senior year at City. In the classroom, he has maintained a 4.0 grade-point average, which helped him earn a full academic scholarship to study pre-medicine at the University of Pittsburgh.

As for his athletic career, Nwankwo, 6 feet 7, is best known for his prowess on the basketball court, where he helped the No. 1 Knights win their second straight Class 2A state championship as a defensive catalyst and strong rebounder. Nwankwo also has developed a love for lacrosse, playing defense to help the Knights (10-1 overall, 9-0 in Baltimore City) win 37 straight league games.

In addition to pre-med at Pitt, he’s also be walking onto the basketball team next year.
