Ohio's finest: Fort's Legraen, Caldwell's Weichman named All-Ohio
Just a day after Warren basketball standout Evan French was listed as a first team All-Ohio selection, two more area hoopsters have been dubbed worthy of all-state honors.
Fort Frye junior Seth Legraen was named third team All-Ohio in Division III by The Associated Press Tuesday, while Caldwell senior Jonathan Weichman was a first team All-Ohio selection in D4.
Both players were first team all-district picks, while Weichman was the D4 East District Player of the Year.
Legraen, a 6-foot-3 forward for the Eric Henniger-coached Cadets, enjoyed a breakout 2013-14 season. He averaged 17.4 points per game and was also an aggressive rebounder and defender. The Cadets finished the season 21-4 overall, winning PVC, OVAC and sectional championships along the way, with Legraen being an instrumental piece to the puzzle.
Weichman, a 5-11 guard, scored 21.8 points per contest this season and helped the Redskins improve their win total from six to 16 over the past two seasons. Weichman became Caldwell’s all-time leading scorer with 1,362 points over his career. This season was highlighted by a 37-point performance over Marietta on Feb. 8, the performance that sent him over the top of Brett Riddle’s school record 1,344 points.
Caldwell was ousted 67-45 by Malvern in sectional game while the Cadets’ season came to a close in a district semi loss to Garaway.
Legraen’s teammate Chandler Lang, a senior, was a special mention All-Ohio pick while Monroe Central’s Bryan Duffy was honorable mention.
In Division IV, Frontier’s Drew Schneider and Waterford’s Cody Paxton were both honorable mentions to go along with Marietta’s Braden Riley and Warren’s Reece Patton and Michael Hall in D2.
Lang was a first team all-district honoree, while Schneider and Paxton were both second team all district picks.
