Providence Pilots men’s basketball student-athlete Kendall Perpall has been named a National Christian College Athletic Association 3rd Team All-American. The announcement, which caps a stand-out season for the Tulsa, OK point guard, was made during Monday’s NCCAA Awards Banquet.
“Making the All-American team was third on my list of goals for this year behind winning a championship and making it to nationals,” says Perpall, who will graduate this spring with a Bachelor of Arts in General Studies with a minor in Psychology. “We came up a bit short but I am grateful to be recognized for my hard work and talent, and for my teammates who helped me achieve this.”
Perpall led the Pilots to the final of the 2018 Northern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference tournament in Fort Totten, ND and also helped Providence to a semi-final at the NCCAA North Region Tournament in Ankeny, IA. His 18.8 points per game was good for second in the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference this season and he paced the MCAC with a per-game field goal average of 7.50.
As a Providence student he says he’ll look back fondly on the campus community after graduating.
“Providence is a friendly community,” he says. “You can actually approach professors with any problems, academically or spiritually, and they will listen and help you.”
A 37-point display against Stone Child College earlier this season this the individual performance Perpall says he’ll most remember from his time as a Providence Pilot.
