Jake Sims Njcaa Division I Bound
Congratulations to Terriers catcher Jake Sims who was awarded a scholarship to Roane State Community College this week.
Jake will provide the Raiders with power from the left side and a plus arm from behind the plate.
He was a mainstay in the heart of the SR Terriers batting order this past year, consistently providing clutch hits and RBIs.
Defensively he routinely shut down the opponents running game, and did a great job working with the pitching staff.
Roane State is a member of the ten team Tennessee Community College Athletic Association (TCCAA), which was founded in 1968. Teams compete at the NJCAA Division One level.
Roane has nine locations across the state. It is home to 6,000 students and has a student-faculty ratio of 18:1. The college's most recent job placement rate for career- preparation programs was an impressive 97%. Jake will study Criminal Justice at RSCC.
In addition to his fine work with the Terriers over the past three years Jake also played high school baseball. He was captain this past season when his squad won it's third straight District 10 title.
More recently Jake was selected to the Ontario team at the Tournament 12 , held at Rogers Center. He also competed at the Oklahoma JR Sunbelt and the Arizona Fall Classic for the DBacks Scout Team.
Best of luck to Jake and his family as he prepares to wrap up his career with the Terriers in 2015.
