KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Junior forward Charlie Wallrapp (Omaha, Neb.) became the seventh Raven to earn a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) All-America honor.


Wallrapp earned Benedictine's 12th overall All-America nod on Tuesday when the NAIA released the 2013 All-American squad.

 

"We are excited to have our second consecutive NAIA Division I All-America Honorable Mention recognition," said Raven head coach Ryan Moody. "Charlie works extremely hard on the court and in the weight room to improve his overall game and is a great teammate. This award is not only a result of that hard work but also well deserved."



 

Wallrapp led the Ravens with a 14.2 ppg average this season and was also the Ravens leading rebounder with an average of 7.4 per game and was named honorable mention All-America for his efforts.



 

The All-America honor is the second NAIA postseason honor for Wallrapp this season as he was named a Daktronics-NAIA scholar athlete earlier in the week.



 

This season, Wallrapp recorded seven double-doubles in helping guide the Ravens to a 18-12 overall record.

He scored a season-high 25 points against Columbia (Mo.) on Dec. 14 and hit 83.3 percent from the floor in games against MNU on Feb. 9 and Peru State on Feb. 14.



 

Wallrapp's selection as NAIA All-America marks the second straight season for Benedictine to earn the honor.
