Cosey named First Team All American

Just weeks after breaking a college scoring record and being selected as the conference Player of the Year, Columbus State’s Glenn Cosey has been named to the All American First Team. He joins nine other players from the National Junior College Athletic Conference (NJCAA) Div. II who were honored with the designation.

Cosey is expected to join a Division I four-year college after maintaining a grade point average above 3.0 all school year.  “When your leading scorer is consistently one of your hardest workers on the court, in practice and in class, he motivates teammates while keeping the program grounded with a solid academic base,” said Head Coach Pat Carlisle.

In March, the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference (OCCAC) named Cosey as its Player of the Year for 2012. The 6’, 170-lb. sophomore point guard broke a school record by scoring 1,046 points during his two year career.

The Columbus State Cougars finished the season with a 25-5 record after making it to the second round of the OCCAC district championships.
