2021-22 Cicero North-Syracuse College Prospects
For the 2021-22 season, Cicero North-Syracuse High will be led by second year Head Coach Kyle Martin, in New York’s Section III Class AA division. Martin turned around the program in his first year improving the team from a 2-18 mark to 8-4 and the future is bright for the Northstars. Prior to Cicero North Syracuse, Martin spent five seasons as the Head Coach at SUNY Purchase, where he led the team to postseason play every season, including a Skyline Conference divisional title in 2020. Below are the current Cicero North Syracuse players with the potential of developing into college level performers:
Luke Paragon (2022) 6’4 Guard - Paragon, who was highlighted on the RecruitTheBronx.com this summer, played with the NY Jayhawks team this past year and will likely attend a post-grad program next year. Paragon has a constant motor and an active rebounder on both ends. He is billed a shooter, but is also very explosive getting to the rim and is an underrated passer. Luke is a high-character gym-rat and holds an offer from Stony Brook; and has interest from a number of Division I schools. 3.5 gpa
Robbie Siechen (2022) 6’0 Point Guard - Siechen, is a true point-guard, and thrives in getting his teammates involved. Siechen is a consistent outside shooter and has the ability to get to the rim. He will guard the opponents best guard and is a floor general in every sense of the word. He is the son of a 5x NYS Champion Coach on the girls side and has an extremely strong work-ethic. He currently has interest from high-academic Division III schools. 3.7 gpa
Reece Congel (2023) 6’4 forward - Congel is a high-motor do-it-all force on both ends. He is slightly undersized for the 4 position but makes up for it with his work-rate and production. He has the ability to hit the outside shot and is very strong going to the rim. He has a mix of post-moves and cleans up on the offensive glass. 3.6 gpa
Andrew Benedict (2025) 6’1 guard - The youngest member of the Northstars is one to look out for. Benedict averaged over 20ppg for the Northstars Junior Varsity team as an 8th grader and transitioned that well for the Varsity team this past summer, averaging double-digits and shooting over 60% from the field. Benedict can score in a variety of ways, and is rarely sped up by his opponents.
