The King’s Academy Lions Athletics recently recognized two athletes who will be playing at the collegiate level after graduation.
Senior Andrew Kozan committed to Auburn University to play golf. He is the 2016 Antigua National High School National Team Champion and Individual Champion, Puerto Rico Junior Open Champion, Westminster Christian Academy Individual Champion and named to the 2015-16 American Family Insurance All-USA Boys Golf second team.
Kozan was ranked at one point in the Polo Golf Rankings and earned exemption into the PGA Tour’s Puerto Rico Open in 2015. He has finished inside the top 10 numerous times in 2016, including a second-place finish at the Haas Family Invitational. He was named first-team Rolex Junior All-American in 2015 and Palm Beach County’s 2015 Golfer of the Year. In 2015, he was the FHSAA 1A District 20 Individual Champion, the FHSAA 1A Region 7 Individual Title, and placed fifth at the FHSAA 1A State Finals for the Lions. Kozan won his division in the Florida Junior Tour Championship.

He finished last season as a junior with a .467 batting average, with 9 RBI, and stole 20 bases to successfully complete 80 percent of his steals. Also, he led the team, which earned the second seed in a brutally tough 4A District 6 game and made its first FHSAA regional appearance since 2013, losing a 1-run game in the regional semifinals.
