Since losing in overtime to then top-ranked Golden on Dec. 7, the Longmont Trojans have been on a roll and have won 16 straight games.
A big reason for that has been the emergence of talented players like junior Calvin Seamons. So far this winter, Seamons is averaging 8.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 0.9 steals per game, which includes a bit of a slow start that saw him average 5.4 points through the Trojans’ first five games.
“Calvin is an elite scorer,” Colorado Anarchy club director Brandon Brown said. “He doesn’t always get a chance to show it. We play a run-and-gun system in the summer time and he is phenomenal is scoring in transition, scoring around one or two guys, over the top of guys, and his outside shot is getting better.”
Seamons still gets lost from time to time at the defensive end but is improving. At 6-foot-4, 190 pounds, he has the size, frame and athletic ability to impact the game in a number of ways.
At this point in his recruitment, Seamons has drawn some mild interest from several regional colleges and as far away as Minnesota. His near-4.0 GPA is also garnering him a lot of attention from high-academic schools.
Seamons is shooting 44 percent from the field and 38 percent from 3-point range. He scored a season-high 18 points against Mountain View on Jan. 5. Having risen to No. 3 in the CHSAANow.com 4A statewide rankings, the Longmont Trojans figure to be a factor late in the playoffs and Seamons will continue to be one to watch along the way.
