Volunteer State Lands Graham Tebbit
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Monday, December 14, 2009
You would be hard pressed to find any 18 year old that pays more attention to detail and demands more of himself from a performance standpoint than Graham Tebbit. This past weekend Graham ventured south to Tennessee for a visit to Volunteer State.

His impressive physical presence and mature nature really impressed Pioneers recruiting coordinator Joel Lynch and Head Coach Mike Crossland. " He has unlimited potential" said Lynch. Potential is one thing, but Graham has got to this point in his young career because of an enormous amount of hard work . Over the past two years, he has spent countless hours at The Baseball Zone in Mississauga sculpting his 6'5", 225 lb body. During his many hours at "The Zone" he engages himself in an extremely demanding strength and conditioning program, throws bullpens and takes hundreds of swings in the cage. The multi positional Tebbit is the very rare exception in college recruiting circles, as the Pioneers expect he will play first base/DH and pitch. Graham is the third Terrier in the past four years that has secured a scholarship at the NJCAA Division 1 powerhouse. Last season the Pioneers were an eyelash away from the Junior College World Series. After winning their region, they lost a 2-1 heartbreaker in 10 innings to the Middle Georgia Warriors. Volunteer State is located in Gallatin TN, which is 50km northeast of Nashville. It was founded in 1971, enrolls 7,000 students in 16 buildings on 100 acres. They have over 70 programs offered in courses such as Humanities, Social Science, Education, Business and Math. This past fall Graham hit in the heart of the Terriers order, and was very solid defensively at first base. He also threw several outstanding innings in Trois Riviers, Alabama and versus Division 1 competition at Niagara University. Graham possesses quiet leadership skills, is diligent, determined and is an excellent team mate. The entire Terriers organization would like to congratulate Graham and his family on his scholarship. We look forward to Graham's continued success in 2010.
