Week #2 of the season was a relatively short one as the Tigers were only able to play one doubleheader against the Bryan College Lions and swept it 10-3 and 11-0 on Thursday.  

Players of the Week came from this DH and it was announced Monday that Freshman Andy Clay ( 3B / RHP ) and Sophomore Brandon Day ( 2B ) were this week’s recipients.  Both players went 4-6 for the twin bill and each had an RBI and multiple runs scored.  

Clay chipped in a ringing double in the first game while garnering 3 hits.  Day had 2 hits in each game and chipped in a hit by pitch also.  Both made stellar plays in the field and were catalyst in the Tigers sweep.  

“Both of these guys are most deserving” said Head Coach Greg Dennis, “and we are excited to have each one here and playing at their capabilities.  Day came in here after having played some at LaSalle University last year and has fit into our program really, really well.  Clay played at Loganville HS in Loganville, GA last year and has already made his presence felt both on the mound and at the plate and field.  These two guys also tied for our Off Season Champions Award this past Fall so they have tasted success’ together with some frequency here at Chatt State.”  

Chatt State baseball is proud of have Applebee’s as one of its major sponsors for the 2014 season.

For some college football coaches, an opening season Thursday night game is a good way to get the students out on a week night, for others it disrupts the usual game week routine. Fewer games on the national docket (compared to a Saturday schedule) and an upset win can bring good national coverage. During Tuesday’s Conference Call, a few of the coaches ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Al Sharpton’s Wise Remarks

I’ll admit I paid little more than scant attention to the Monday funeral of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot and killed by police bullets in Ferguson, Mo., after he allegedly was involved in strong-armed robbery. There are too many tawdry details and, in my way of thinking, there is nothing under God’s sun, absolutely nothing, that gives others the right to riot, burn ... (click for more)
