Simon Clarke Lands Scholarship To Alcorn State University
Terriers first baseman Simon Clarke has committed to Alcorn State University (NCAA D1) in Mississippi.

Simon is the tenth SR Terrier to acquire a scholarship since August. Over the past three years Simon has hit a lot of long balls, as his 6'4" frame is an imposing presence in the Terriers lineup. Clarke's tremendous power is his number one tool. The highlight of Simon's baseball career thus far was his invitation to attend Canada's Junior National Team's fall instructional workouts at Disney in Orlando Florida (October 2009). The Alcorn State Braves compete in the Southwestern Athletic Conference ( SWAC), along with members such as Alabama State, Grambling State, Arkansas-PB and Texas Southern. The university was founded in 1871 and is home to 3,250 students. Simon will be majoring in Business Administration and Management. Congratulations to Simon and his family on this accomplishment.
