Associates Degree in Criminal Justice.

Attended Lander University in the Fall of 2012 majoring in Mass Communications. Co-hosted a sports radio show on the nationally recognized Lander University radio (top 5 out of 300+ colleges).

Transferred from Lander and will begin studying at The University of South Carolina in the Fall of 2013, majoring in Broadcasting/Journalism.

Life Hi-Lites... playing baseball throughout youth up to High School, shining moment of glory was play at the plate where ump called me out and the catcher dropped the ball, I pointed it out and was called safe (pretty big moment for a kid who was shy throughout his childhood). Graduating High School, and getting Associates Degree. Attending Lander University and experiencing success while on my own.
By far the biggest hi-lite of my life, was going out while way out of shape (around 280 pounds), and competing for a spot on the Lander University Baseball team. I didn't make it, but I kept up with the other guys and likely outperformed a few of them. I did it all to honor my recently lost grandmother, who loved nothing more in life than to watch me play baseball as a kid.
I will be doing it all again come this fall, except I will be trying out for the USC baseball team, which will be a "full circle" moment for me and my family. The odds will be stacked heavily against me, but it doesn't matter... because nothing beats the feeling of being out on the diamond, the place you feel most comfortable at.

I have been very shy through my entire life, but if there is one place I feel on top of the world, it is on the baseball field.

Shaq Roland Makes Unexpectedly Sudden Commitment

You would have to assume the commitments of Kwinton Smith and Jody Fuller went a long ways to easing his mind on the decision. Them three together will be something to behold... now lets see Nosovitch go on and commit to throw to them guys.

Great Idea for SECCG....

I think it would be REALLY awsome if the team would wear all black uni's, thus bringing back the craze of the Black Magic years.  It would not only probably be a huge emotional plus for the guys,...
