Former SLO star Abram is an All-American

Former San Luis Obispo High boys volleyball star Curtis Abram, who just finished his senior season at Emmanuel College, was named an AVCA Division III second-team All-American on Tuesday.

Abram is the second Emmanuel athlete in any sport, and the first male athlete at the school to ever be selected as an All-American.

The 6-foot-2 outside hitter led the Saints to a program-record 28 wins this season, and finished second in the nation in aces (0.83 per set), fifth in kills (4.27 per set) and ninth in hitting percentage (.342).

Also this year, Abram broke school records for kills in a match (37), season (517) and career (1,662), as well as for aces in a match (10) and season (100).

This summer he’s expected to prepare to try out for pro indoor teams in Europe.
