Kamau Faines (class of '13) becomes the second Payton Alumni ever to play in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, following in the footsteps of Chris Eversley (class of '08). As a freshman walk-on guard, Kamau and his 10th seed team will face 7th seed Iowa, Friday March, 20th.
Kamau's sister, Mari Faines (class of '11) is also a major role model for Kamau. Mari, a star athlete herself played for the Payton volleyball program and Colgate University's volleyball team.
Not only an incredible athlete, anyone who knows Kamau can attest to what a hard working and compassionate young man he is. Walter Payton College Prep is proud of Kamau and will be rooting for him and his Davidson team in their NCAA Tournament games! Go Wildcats!
