In the spring of 1997, a Citadel of-

ficial was quoted as saying the Bulldogs had three important things going for its baseball program: weather, tradition, and the best facility in college baseball. With the opening of the $19.5 million Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park on April 6, 1997, there is no question that The Citadel has at least those three items going for it. With seating for 6,000, Riley Park is named after the long-time Charleston mayor who is a 1964 graduate of The Citadel, Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Riley Park was designed by the firm that created Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Md., Coors Field in Denver, Col. and Jacobs Field in Cleveland, Ohio. The Citadel and Western Carolina played the first-ever game at Riley Park in front of 3,854 fans. Ryan Butler’s two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Bulldogs a 65, come-from-behind victory over the Catamounts for their first win in their new home. Since 1997, Riley Park has hosted the annual Southern Conference Baseball Tournament every season and has become one of the most attended college baseball tournaments

The Citadel Baseball 2008

in the nation. The Citadel will host the SoCon Tournament for the 19th consecutive season this May 20-25, 2008. The single-game tournament attendance record of 5,419 was set in 2003 for an opening round game between The Citadel and the College of Charleston. The all-tournament attendance record was set in 2004 when more than 35,000 fans attended Riley Park, an average of 2,343 per game. Nearly 300,000 patrons have attended the 17 previous SoCon baseball tournaments held in Charleston. The most recent addition to Riley Park came in the Spring of 2006 when the City of Charleston, The Citadel and the RiverDogs collaborated to add a new state-of-the-art video board in right field. During the 10 years The Citadel has called Riley Park home, the Bulldogs have finished in the top-35 in annual attendance eight times. In 2004, over 58,000 Bulldog fans streamed through the gates of Riley Park to set a new Citadel annual attendance record. Bulldog baseball also shares its home with Charleston’s minor league baseball team, the RiverDogs, a single-A South Atlantic League affiiliate of the New York Yankees.

Coaches and Staff

fter reaching the Southern Conference Tournament Championship game in 2007 and graduating six seniors – only two of who were position players – The Citadel Bulldogs are primed for a successful 2008 campaign. Despite the contradiction, The Citadel will field a young but experienced team this season with seven returning starters and only four seniors. Last year’s outlook claimed, “The 2007 club … will have to rely heavily on some young talent.” That young talent proved themselves throughout the season, especially in the Southern Conference Tournament where the Bulldogs advanced to the championship game for the third time in four years. That “experienced youth” returns in 2008 with an offensive line-up that will challenge every pitching staff the Bulldogs come across this season. Of the seven starting position players that return this season, only two hit below .300 and all of them hit above .250 last season. Leading the way offensively will be junior Sonny Meade who hit .379 to pace the Bulldogs in 2007. That powerful list also includes senior outfielder Chris Swauger, who hit .316, hit 15 home runs and drove in 53 runs and sophomore Richard Jones, whose 15 home runs tied Swauger for the team lead and whose .645 slugging percentage was sixth in the Southern Conference. His impressive performance earned Freshman All-America honors by a trio of sources, including Baseball America, Ping! and Rivals.com. Meade, Swauger and Jones will have to

Player Profiles

improve upon their 2007 performances to fill the void left by the strong bat of Zach Brown, who graduated and began his professional career after being chosen by the San Diego Padres in the 27th round of the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft. Brown started all 61 games last season, hitting .353, sending 13 beyond the fences and driving in 45 runs. On the mound, The Citadel will have to replace closer Link Saunders, who registered a 3.00 ERA in 26 appearances out of the bullpen. The Bulldogs will be challenged to replace Saunders’ seven saves in the closer role while also filling the hole left by starter and relief pitcher Justin Smith and his seven wins last season. Despite some holes to fill, a crop of young talent that has already seen a lot of playing time in Southern Conference games will see playing time as three returning starters are sophomores with two of them (Bryan Altman, Jones) hitting .300 and above. That experience gained in 2007 will set the stage for a successful 2008 campaign and beyond as The Citadel continues to compete in one of the toughest conferences in the country. Position-by-Position The following is a position-by-position look at the 2008 Diamond Dogs… Pitching The Citadel returns its top two starters from last season in juniors Matt Crim and Wes Wrenn. Crim led the way in 2007, posting an impressive 7-3 record in 17 appearances

The Citadel Baseball 2008

2008 Opponents and 90.1 innings pitched while Wrenn posted a 6-6 record in 17 appearances and 104.2 innings pitched. Crim and Wrenn have been starting pitchers since their freshman year when they posted records of 5-1 and 6-2, respectively. The junior duo will need to return to the consistency established during the latter half of their freshman year for The Citadel to finish in the top half of the conference. A pair of freshmen are expected to battle for the third weekend starting spot with the talented arms of Matt Talley (6-6, 225, LHP) and Asher Wojciechowski (6-4, 225, RHP) vying for that spot. Both were talented pitchers in high school and summer ball and should have the tools needed to get past the offensive threats that await around the Southern Conference. An army of pitchers are available to start mid-week games, led by either Talley or Wojciechowski. Brett Bull is expected to step up this season in a middle relief role, along with Timmy Martin, Chris Boyce and Nick Sprowls. The Citadel pitching staff also sports a quartet of dual-role pitchers who can hit the mound when not playing elsewhere around the diamond. Outfielder Sonny Meade did not take to the mound in 2007, but registered 16.2 innings pitched in 2006. Infielder Chris McGuiness put up a 3-2 record last season while infielder Trey Thomas and catcher Sid Fallaw can also throw strikes. In the bullpen, talented set-up man Raymond Copenhaver returns after a stellar freshman season in which he recorded a 3.70 ERA in 36 appearances and will look to


The Southern Conference

2007 Review

Catching Freshman All-America honoree Richard Jones will be the Bulldogs’ primary catcher this season and will bring a strong arm and a big bat to the line-up. Jones improved his defensive abilities over the summer through summer ball in the Cape Cod League and individual training as he beefs up all aspects of his game. Junior Sid Fallaw, who has seen plenty of game experience, spent much of last season whereas Jones was primarily the designated hitter. Matt Reifsnider also has experience behind the plate and can catch when he is not on the mound in the closing role and could see some mid-week action behind the plate. With plenty of experience behind the plate, the catching corps will have the opportunity to shine in 2008 while continuing to improve upon their defensive abilities. Infield The question last season was what about the middle infield and how would such a young group produce throughout the year? The experience question has been answered and 2008 hopes to see a stark improvement in performance as Bryan Altman and Kyle

Jordan both saw considerable playing time last year in their first season of play. Altman, a redshirt sophomore this year, and Jordan, a sophomore, expect to improve on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball as 2008 progresses with both seeing significant playing time as freshmen last season. Altman could also see some time at shortstop while senior Conrad Kellahan will challenge Altman for playing time at second. Experience abounds on the left side of the infield as Matt Arnold enters his senior season for the Bulldogs and will be the starting third baseman. Arnold has started in 100 games in his career at The Citadel and hit a career-high .332 last season. Chris McGuiness will replace Zach Brown at first base as the Bulldogs lost the .353 hitter to graduation and the San Diego Padres organization. Reifsnider will back up Arnold at third base and has the opportunity to play across the diamond at first, along with Aaron Johnson. Johnny Dangerfield and Trey Thomas both have the opportunity to fight for playing time at third base as well. However, with Arnold being the only infielder with two full seasons of collegiate action under his belt, this young group will need to continue to improve in making routine plays and catching the ball in pressure situations. Outfield For the most part, the corps of outfielders is the most experienced and talented part of this year’s club with senior Chris Swauger in leftfield and junior Sonny Meade in rightfield. Swauger, team captain and a 3.9 student, hit .316 last season and tied Richard Jones for the team lead in home runs with 15 roundtrippers. Swauger also drove in 53 runs throughout 2007, but the veteran leader really stepped up in the Southern Conference Tournament, hitting .444 and sending three beyond the fences as he led the seventh-seeded Bull-

This is The Citadel

dogs to the championship game for the second-consecutive season. Swauger’s reliable glove and steady bat will be complemented by Meade in right field, a solid player who also had a hot week during the SoCon Tournament, hitting .400 despite an injured left arm. Sophomore Matt Simonelli will be looked upon to produce in centerfield and at the plate. With talented leadership on either side, he should have a successful year while freshman Brad Felder will also have the opportunity to see some playing time out in centerfield. This group of outfielders will need to improve in not allowing opposing runners to gain the extra base in certain situations. Schedule With the new scheduling rules in effect, the challenge facing all teams in 2008 will be put upon pitching staffs across the country. There will be several weeks throughout the season where The Citadel, along with most other teams, will be playing five games in seven days. That challenge is magnified when considering the caliber of the opponents The Citadel faces in its mid-week games this season. On this year’s slate, 18 out of the 26 opponents won 30 or more games last year and features one College World Series Participant, one NCAA Super Regional participant and four other NCAA Regional participants. The Citadel will have to capitalize and gain confidence, chemistry and establish relaxed aggression during the early season home stretch that features 25 out of the first 28 games at Riley Park. The Bulldogs will open the season with a four-game series against Delaware and a mid-week game against UNC Wilmington before the first of three tournaments hosted at “The Joe.” The string of tournaments begins with the Charleston Firefighter Memo-

improve upon that performance. Matt Reifsnider, who registered a 3-5 record and 5.29 ERA in 68.0 innings pitched last season, has the unenviable task of replacing closer Link Saunders, who completed his eligibility and joined the New York Yankees organization last summer. The Bulldogs will have to capitalize on the experience at the top of the rotation and in the set-up and closing spots. With the new scheduling rules and more mid-week games, the two-way players will be utilized and relied upon more than before. If the team can establish consistency in the middle rotation early on, they have the potential to be a dominant force in the Southern Conference.

That April 1 date with South Carolina marks the first return to Charleston for USC since South Carolina, ranked No. 1 in the nation, dropped a 7-6 decision to The Citadel after holding a 6-2 lead late in the game on Feb. 18, 2007. Five of the nine Southern Conference series will be at home, including the May 9-11 series against Western Carolina, which split the 2007 regular season SoCon title with the College of Charleston. The Bulldogs will face the archrival Cougars at Riley Park in a nonconference game on March 11 at 6 p.m., then will travel to Mount Pleasant to face CofC on April 25-27 to start an eight-game road swing. The Citadel’s series against Western Carolina will close out the 2008 SoCon slate for the Bulldogs before The Citadel heads to

the capital city and historic Sarge Frye Field to face South Carolina again on May 13 at 7 p.m. The Bulldogs conclude the regular season on May 15-17 with a non-conference series against first year Division I member Presbyterian. This season marks the 19th consecutive year that the Southern Conference Tournament will be held at Riley Park. Billed as the “Bennett Hofford Family of Hotels Southern Conference Baseball Tournament,” the conference has adopted a format similar to the College World Series featuring two brackets of four teams each. To whittle the SoCon’s 10 teams down to eight, seeds 7-10 will again play a single elimination play-in game on Tuesday, May 20. The two brackets then open up on Wednesday, May 21 and lead up to the championship game, which will be televised by SportSouth, on Sunday, May 25. The Southern Conference Tournament champion is awarded an automatic bid to an NCAA Regional.

Fred Jordan Head Coach 17th Season The Citadel, 1979 Fred Jordan, a former Citadel baseball letterman, is in his 17th season at the helm of his alma mater’s baseball program and holds a 558-400 (.582) overall record, all with the Bulldogs. Jordan has instilled the ideals of belief, faith and trust into The Citadel baseball. Players under Jordan are known for playing “The Citadel Way”— Long, Hard and Fast. The Citadel Baseball has been recognized for its tenacious pace of play and tremendous discipline that Jordan sets forth in the everyday rigors of practice and throughout the regular season. He has led the Bulldogs to six Southern Conference Tournament championships and six NCAA Regional appearances in the last 11 years, including the 2004 SoCon Championship and an appearance at the 2004 NCAA Regional held in Columbia, S.C. No other NCAA Division I baseball program has been a part of their conference championship more than The Citadel in the past 11 years. In his 16 seasons, Jordan’s Bulldogs average more than 36 victories a year, including 41 victories in 1999, which currently ranks as the second highest win total in Citadel history. Jordan hit a mileston in 2006 as he picked up his 500th career win. No other coach has ever reached the 500 mark as quickley as Jordan did. In fact, Chal Port is the only other coach to even earn 500 victories. Jordan is considered the dean of Southern Conference baseball coaches as he has won 10 Southern Conference championships, seven more than the nearest competitor. Jordan stresses strong pitching and solid defense in order to win championships. Under Jordan, The Citadel has won the pitching title seven of the last 16 years and sev-

enof the last 13. Under Jordan, 47 Bulldogs have been honored as All-SoCon performers, while 42 have been named to the All-Tournament team, including a record seven in 2004. He has coached one Southern Conference Male Athlete of the Year, five Southern Conference Pitchers of the Year, four Southern Conference Freshmen of the Year, one Southern Conference Player of the Year, and six tournament Most Valuable Players. Jordan has been honored as the Southern Conference Coach of the Year three times, the last being in 2003. Over the last 10 seasons, Jordan’s teams have had the eyes of Charleston upon them. The Citadel has been ranked in the top-35 in national attendance for 10 consecutive seasons. In 2001, the Bulldogs finished 25th in the nation, the highest ever for a Citadel team, with 53,501 fans turning out at Riley Park to see the Bulldogs play. In 2004, over 58,000 fans streamed through the gates of Riley Park to help set a single-season attendance record. In 2007, over 57,500 fans attended Bulldog baseball games, which brought the total attendance to watch The Citadel Baseball in Riley Park to almost 450,000 (since 1998). The Citadel surpassed the 30-win total in 2007 for the 15th time in 16 seasons under Jordan. Included in that was The Citadel’s 7-6 upset victory over No. 1 South Carolina as the Bulldogs rallied from a late 6-1 deficit in the sixth inning. For the third time in four years, The Citadel found itself in the Southern Conference Tournament Championship game. The Bulldogs garnered national attention in 2006 as Chris Swauger was named National Hitter of the Week to

26 open the season. Swauger was one of two players to earn All-SoCon honors and finished the season second nationally in triples. Closer Link Saunders was tabbed to the Stopper of the Year Watch List as he was consistently in the top-five in the nation in saves. Jordan also had two more players continue to the professional ranks as left-hander Ryan Owens signed with the Houston Astros and shortstop Matt Matulia was drafted in the 24th round by the Chicago Cubs. The Citadel played 12 games against nationally ranked opponents, including an upset over No. 3 Nebraska. In the Southern Conference Tournament, the Dogs battled to knock out topseeded Elon en route to the championship game as The Citadel captured the runner-up spot and had two Bulldogs named to the All-Tournament team. In 2005, Jordan had his 37th player named to the Southern Conference All-Tournament team in shortstop Matt Matulia. Matulia registered a .333 batting average with two doubles, two home runs and six RBI in four games. Two seniors on the 2005 squad also received Southern Conference Player of the Week honors as Chris Ard and pitcher Griff Beckham each earned the award for their performance. Four seniors left their mark on Citadel baseball history. Ard, Josh Stackley and Jon Aughey each made their way into multiple top-10 lists, while Shannon Sprouse moved into seventh all-time in saves. Relief pitcher Link Saunders emerged to lead the Southern Conference in opposing batting average (.234) during his sophomore campaign. Saunders also finished third in the Southern Conference with a 3.15 earned run average.

went in the sixth round to San Diego, while Cannon was picked by Toronto in the eighth round. The 2003 club finished 19-11 in the Southern Conference and had four players named to the 2003 All-Southern Conference squad; Chris Ard and Chip Cannon were honored as members of the first-team and Brook Dantzler and Matt Hamer, who finished his career with second on the all-time appearances list with 108, were listed on the second-team. Freshman centerfielder Trent Weathers, who played in all 57 of the Bulldogs’ games, was honored by the Southern Conference Media Association as the Freshman of the Year. With national powers Miami, North Carolina State, Florida State and South Carolina on the slate in 2003, Fred Jordan led his ball club to victories over the Hurricanes, Wolfpack and Gamecocks. He also became the fastest Citadel coach to reach the 400-win plateau as he accomplished the feat on March 8 with a 7-3 victory over Western Carolina. The 2002 team featured one AllAmerican, two All-Southern Conference performers and the Southern Conference’s Pitcher and Male Athlete of the Year. The 2002 team was no different than any other Jordan coached club, as they were one of the best pitching teams in the country.

In 2004, The Citadel finished 21-9 in the Southern Conference and had three players named to the 2003 All-Southern Conference squad; Chip Cannon and Jonathan Ellis were honored as members of the first-team, while Josh Stackley was named to the second team. A record seven Bulldogs earned all-tournament honors after leading The Citadel to its seventh SoCon Tournament title. Jordan’s 2004 team also became the first Bulldog team since 1998 to win a NCAA Regional game as they downed Coastal Carolina 10-1 in the Regionals. The 2004 Bulldog club assaulted the record books like no other team in recent history as 19 career and/or season records were either tied or broken. The marks that standout are Cannon’s 17 homers, 71 base on balls and .990 fielding percentage, Stackley’s 274 atbats, and Ellis’ 18 games started, nine complete games, 136.1 innings pitched and 12 wins. The 2004 team also left its mark on the field with a .974 team fielding percentage that broke the previous record of .968 set by the 2003 club. Ellis and Cannon took home several national honors as well, including All-American laurels. Cannon was quickly tabbed as a clutch power hitter and several teams took notice as he set a new Southern Conference and Citadel record with 71 walks in 2004, a mark which also led the nation. The dynamic pair capped off a great season by getting drafted on the first day of Major League Baseball Amateur draft. Ellis

Bulldogs’ staff as he saved 13 games, tying a school record. Corn’s 1.37 ERA was good enough for second lowest in the country and earned him Southern Conference Pitcher of the Year honors. Joining Corn in the category of pitching dominance was junior reliever Matt Hamer, who compiled a 9-2 record to earn second-team All-SoCon honors. When remarking about the 2002 team it is impossible to ignore the names of 13th-round draft pick T.A. Fulmer and team batting leader David Griffin. Fulmer, who threw the fifth no hitter in school history, became the 17th Bulldog selected since Jordan took over. Griffin, perhaps the epitome of Jordan’s style, went on to play minor league baseball, carrying on, along with Fulmer, the Bulldog tradition of graduating players to the professional ranks. Of Jordan’s 21 draftees, 13 were pitchers, and two are currently on Major League 40-man rosters. Britt Reames (then-Oakland A’s) became the first Bulldog ever to participate in the Major League Baseball Postseason and Dallas McPherson (Florida Marlins) are currently listed on their respective preseason squads. The 2001 team featured three AllAmericans, four first-team All-Southern Conference performers and the South-

The Bulldogs’ earned run average ranked in the top-25 nationally and were led by Corn, who compiled an 8-3 record and 12 saves to earn second-team All-America honors. When mentioning the 2001 team it is impossible not to mention the names of second-round draft pick Dallas McPherson and Southern Conference Player of the Year Philip Hartig. McPherson, the 57th overall selection of the Anaheim Angels in the 2001 draft, became the third-highest selected Bulldog in school history. Hartig, perhaps the most prolific offensive power in Southern Conference history, set 10 Citadel and six Southern Conference all-time records during his senior season and teamed with McPherson to be the most dominant offensive duo in the Southern Conference. The 2000 championship team featured two all-Americans, three first-team All-Southern Conference performers and two second team All-Southern Conference members. Junior centerfielder Chris Morris led the nation by stealing 84 bases and established the single season Southern Conference record. Those 84 swipes also set the Southern Conference all-time record for stolen bases at 147. Morris was named first

adel, Jordan had been one of the most respected high school baseball coaches in the state of South Carolina. He was the head coach at Stratford High School from 1984-1991 before The Citadel called. He led the Knights to an overall record of 156-53 (.746), and during his tenure at Stratford, the Knights were Lower State runners-up in 1988 and 1989. At Fort Johnson High and James Island High schools in Charleston, Jordan led the Trojans and Rams to an overall record of 70-34 (.673) from 1980-83, including the AAAA Lower State Championship in 1983 at James Island. His 1980 and ‘81 Fort Johnson teams were AAA District runners-up. In 12 years as a high school head coach, Jordan led each of his teams to a state playoff appearance and all 12 squads finished no worse than second place in their conference. His 1988 Stratford team racked up 20 wins in a row en route to a No. 28 ranking by Collegiate Baseball. His 1989 squad started the season ranked 20th by USA Today and was ranked between 20th and 25th the entire season. Jordan was named Region 6-AAAA Coach of the Year in 1987, 1988 and 1989, and served as the head coach of the Lowcountry All-Star team in 1991. He served as the assistant coach of the South Carolina All-Star team in 1989. www.CitadelSports.com

His high school coaching record in 12 seasons was 226-87 (.722). Jordan had over 30 high school players go on to play collegiate baseball. He coached four professional draft choices, six Lowcountry Players of the Year and 48 all-conference picks. Two of Jordan’s players in high school - Lee Glaze and Anthony Jenkins - went on to become Southern Conference Athletes of the Year at The Citadel and earn induction into the school’s athletic hall of fame. A Charleston native and 1975 graduate of Garrett High School, he is married to the former Debra Mattox of Charleston and the couple has two children, Kristen, who graduated from Clemson in the spring of 2004, and Kyle, who is a sophomore on The Citadel baseball team.

career best 41 victories en route to the regular season crown and the Southern Conference Tournament championship. The Bulldogs participated in the NCAA Regional in Tallahassee, Fla., and Jordan was named the Southern Conference’s Coach of the Year for the second time in his career. In 1998, The Citadel won 37 games, marking the fourth-highest single-season victory total in school history, and won the Southern Conference Tournament crown by outscoring its four opponents by a combined score of 37-3. In addition, Jordan saw three members of his 1998 club selected in the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft. In the spring of 1998, he had three players with 4.0 grade point averages, five Gold Stars (3.8+ GPA) honorees and 17 AD’s Honor Roll (3.0+ GPA and/or 2.75 cumulative GPA) members. His 1995 squad captured the Southern Conference regular season crown by five games, the Southern Conference Tournament Championship and made their second consecutive trip to NCAA Regional play. The 1994 Bulldogs captured the Southern Conference Tournament, won the play-in series with the Ohio Valley Conference tournament champion and earned the right to participate in the NCAA East Regional at Clemson. The Citadel advanced to the quarterfinal round of play before bowing out with a 5-1 loss to Notre Dame. This was accomplished with only two seniors and five freshmen in the everyday lineup. Jordan, 46, was named The Citadel’s head coach on Jan. 14, 1992, only 28 days prior to the team’s season-opener against Coastal Carolina in Conway. He replaced his former college head coach Chal Port, who retired prior to the 1992 season after coaching baseball at The Citadel from 19651991. Jordan is the fifth head coach in modern-day Citadel baseball history (since 1954). Jordan is a 1979 graduate of The Citadel where he received a bachelor of science degree in physical education and a master’s degree in education in 1987. He lettered as a pitcher in 1976, 1977 and 1979 for the Bulldogs under Port. He won an Ace (Pitching) Award in 1979 and was a member of the 1979 Southern Conference Baseball Championship squad.

David Beckley Assistant Coach Seventh Season The Citadel, 1996 David Beckley enters his seventh season with the Bulldogs as an assistant coach and his second as the recruiting coordinator. Beckley will continue to work with the infielders and base runners for the 2008 season. Under Beckley, the Bulldogs have flourished defensively. Head coach Fred Jordan has always preached that good pitching and solid defense wins championships, and Beckley firmly believes in that system. After setting the school’s fielding percentage record at .968 in 2003, all the 2004 club did was smash it with a .974 fielding percentage. Beckley’s defense only committed 69 errors in 2,633 chances and tallied a record-breaking 762 assists, surpassing the previous mark of 715 set in 1994. With such a solid defense behind them, Jordan can allow his pitchers to pitch without any fear of being let down by a defender. In 2006, Matt Matulia was drafted by the Chicago Cubs and was a solid defender at shortstop as a four-year starter. Matulia also made an assault on many Citadel records during his career as a Bulldog. Three other Bulldog infielders have reached the professional ranks under Beckley’s tutelage. Second baseman Jon

Aughey signed as a free agent with the Kansas City Royals in 2005 and first baseman Chip Cannon was drafted in the eighth round by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2004 after receiving All-Southern Conference accolades. Cannon was also named to the Louisiville Slugger/TPX All-American Team in his final season as a Bulldog. Shortstop David Griffin played with the Evansville Otters of the independent Frontier League in 2002 and 2003. Beckley’s other task is to put pressure on opposing pitchers and defenses by coaching the Bulldogs base runners. A solid base stealer himself, Beckley swiped 103 bags in four seasons as a Bulldog. He has taken his approach to base running and instilled it into the current Citadel base runners. His guidance is beginning to pay dividends as several current Bulldogs are quickly becoming threats on the base paths. Jon Aughey was one swipe shy of the career top-10 list in stolen bases as he recorded 65 over the four years he played for the Bulldogs. Chris Ard swiped a season high 29 bases in 2005, giving him a career total of 54. Aughey and Ard are not the only players to benefit from Beckley’s knowle d g e .

20 at The Citadel. Beckley played a pivotal part in the development of the 2003 Southern Conference Freshman of the Year Weathers. Weathers not only played in every game for the Bulldogs in 2003 and hit over .300, but Beckley helped hone the fleet-footed Weathers into one of the nation’s leading base stealing threats. Weathers broke The Citadel freshman stolen base mark with 25 steals in only 30 attempts. Beckley is no stranger to The Citadel as he was a four-year letter winner under coach Fred Jordan. Among the smartest base runners in conference history, the James Island native finished his career as the top base stealer in Southern Conference history as he eclipsed the century mark and finished with 104 stolen bases. A 1996 graduate of The Military College of South Carolina, Beckley previously served as the head baseball coach at Berkeley High School and had stints as an assistant coach at both Barnwell and James Island high schools. Beckley was a member of the 1994 and 1995 Southern Conference Championship teams and brings continuity and dedication to the program. Beckley finished second on the team in batting average his senior season as he batted .335 and led the team with 37 stolen bases, 65 runs scored and five triples to lead the Bulldogs to their second consecutive Southern Conference title. He was tabbed to the South Carolina Collegiate All-State team in 1994 and 1996, while being named The Citadel’s team MVP in 1996. A 1992 graduate of Stratford High School, Beckley earned two letters in football and four letters in baseball. During his senior season, he played in the North-South baseball game and the Shrine Bowl for football. For his efforts the High School Sports Report named him the Lowcountry CoPlayer of the Year along with former Bulldog pitcher Brian Callahan (1993-96). Beckley is married to the former Lauren Garmon of James Island. The couple has one daughter, Payton (5), and a son, Tanner (2).

He has flown the A-7, A-10, Hunter and Jaguar aircraft, F-16, F-117A, HH-60G and HC-130. On Jan. 3, 2006, Rosa returned to The Citadel where he serves as 19th president.

Les Robinson Director of Athletics Eighth Year North Carolina State, 1965 At a school where leadership is taught and duty is part of the curriculum, The Citadel has the right person to lead its Department of Athletics in Les Robinson. A virtual Who’s Who in intercollegiate athletics and one of the region’s most sought-after speakers, Robinson is in his eight and final year as the Bulldogs’ Director of Athletics. Possessing more than four decades of college athletic experience to his credit, Robinson, who also served as athletics director and basketball coach at North Carolina State and East Tennessee State, is only the fifth athletics director in Citadel history. He served as the Bulldogs’ basketball coach from 1974-85, having spent the five previous seasons as an assistant coach. In his first four years leading The Citadel’s athletics program, Robinson’s skills as a proven fund-raiser have already benefited The Citadel Brigadier Foundation. During the past four years, the school witnessed the opening of the Altman Athletic Center at Johnson Hagood Stadium and the addition to McAlister Field House for women’s athletics. The Citadel, under Robinson’s guidance, has hosted the Southern Conference cross-country championships, the first two rounds of the women’s basketball championships, the men’s and women’s tennis championships and the baseball tournament. A 1965 graduate of N.C. State, Robinson served five years as a Bull-

dog assistant coach under Dick Campbell and George Hill, and eventually spent 11 seasons as The Citadel’s head basketball coach from 1974-85. He directed the 1978-79 and 1984-85 teams to 20 and 18 victories, respectively. Robinson was named the Southern Conference Coach-of-the-Year in 1979 and was tabbed South Carolina’s Coach-of-the-Year in 1979 and 1985. Following his tenure at The Citadel, Robinson became the head basketball coach at East Tennessee State, where he coached the Buccaneers for five years increasing their win total (7-14-20-27) each year. The West Virginia native remains the only coach in Southern Conference men’s basketball history to earn league coach-of-the-year honors at two different schools, and he ranks fifth on the conference’s list of basketball wins. Robinson is in his seventh year serving on the prestigious NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee, one of the NCAA’s most influential committees. The Committee is responsible for site selection for each round of the NCAA Division I men’s basketball championships. Robinson earned a Bachelor of Science degree in education and recreation from N.C. State in 1965 and added a master’s degree in education and guidance from Western Carolina in 1969. Robinson is married to the former Barbara Simon of St. Albans, WV. The Robinsons, who have maintained a home on Sullivan’s Island since coaching at The Citadel, have four children and eight grandchildren.

2007 Review

“We are fielding a very competitive ballclub that plays extremely hard. We’ll try and develop confidence, chemistry and relaxed aggression in our early season, non-conference schedule, which will allow us to develop into another Southern Conference contender. By the end of the year, we hope to be playing our best baseball and once again challenge for the Southern Conference Tournament championship.”

“The change in the schedule format is going to challenge all pitching staffs across the country. A number of weeks throughout the season, there will be many teams playing five games in seven days. Add the caliber of our mid-week, non-conference schedule to that, it will be one of the bigger challenges we’ve had under my watch.”

“Throughout its history, the Southern Conference has been an innovator in college athletics. The Southern Conference was the first ‘super conference’ with its charter membership including the likes of Alabama, Auburn and North Carolina. The SoCon, as it has come to be known by headline writers throughout the country, is the league that gave birth to the three-point shot in college basketball and was the college home of such sporting greats as Arnold Palmer, Jerry West and Charlie ‘Choo Choo’ Justice.”

Coaches and Staff

The Southern Conference The Southern Conference, which began its 87th season of intercollegiate competition in 2007, is a national leader in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and defining the league’s role in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference is the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. The Southern Conference has also excelled as the premier Football Championship Subdivision conference. Southern Conference member Appalachian State has won the last two Football Championship Subdivision titles. The Conference currently consists of 11 members in four states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. League athletes have been recognized countless times on Verizon/CoSIDA Academic All-America and district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes Scholarship winners have been selected from conference institutions. The Southern Conference office is located in the historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, the Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the SoCon a first class meeting area and offices as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents. 25th Anniversary of Women’s Championships The Southern Conference will celebrate 25 years of women’s championships in 2007-08. A year-long celebration of women’s sports will highlight student-athletes, coaches and teams. Commissioner Ken Germann spearheaded the Southern Conference’s expansion to include women’s athletics. The Germann Cup, named in honor of the former commissioner, annually recognizes the top women’s athletics programs in the conference. From its humble beginnings, women’s athletics have become an integral part of the Southern Conference and its success. The league crowns champions in nine women’s sports including cross country, soccer, volleyball, indoor track & field, basketball, tennis, golf, outdoor track & field and softball. Membership History The Southern Conference was formed on February 25, 1921 at a meeting in Atlanta, Ga. as 14 institutions from the 30-member Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) reorganized as the Southern Conference. Those charter members included Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. Athletic competition began in the fall of 1921. In 1922, six more schools - Florida, LSU, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tulane and Vanderbilt - joined the fold. A year later, the University of the South joined the ranks. VMI became a member in 1925 and Duke was added 1929. Since then, conference membership has experienced a series of membership changes with 42 institutions having been affiliated with the league. The league has undergone two major transitions during its history. The first occurred in December 1932 when the Southeastern Conference was formed from the 23-school Southern Conference. The league’s 13 members west and south of the Appalachian Mountains reorganized to help reduce the extensive travel demands that were present in the league at the time. In 1936, the Southern Conference invited The Citadel, William & Mary, Davidson, Furman, Richmond and Wake Forest to join the membership. The second major shift came about in 1953 when Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest withdrew from the league to form the Atlantic Coast Conference. This change was brought about due to the desire of many of those schools to schedule a greater number of regular season basketball games against local rivals. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that spans four Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. On July 1, 2008, Samford will officially join the league, brining membership of the conference to 12.

Leadership John Iamarino was officially named commissioner of the conference on January 2, 2006. Previously, Iamarino served as commissioner of the Northeast Conference. In nine years with the New Jersey-based league, Iamarino promoted the conference through an ambitious agenda which improved competition, upgraded compliance-related matters and increased the marketing and brand awareness of the conference and its member institutions. The Southern Conference named its first commissioner in December 1950. Duke head football coach Wallace Wade made the transition from Blue Devil football coach to athletics administration as the first person at the helm of the conference. Lloyd Jordan replaced Wade as the commissioner in 1960 and served a 14-year term until Ken Germann became the league head in 1974. Germann was the commissioner for 13 years and orchestrated the league’s expansion to include women’s athletics. In 1987, he was succeeded by Dave Hart who spearheaded the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, N.C. to Asheville, N.C. Wright Waters succeeded Hart upon his retirement in 1991. Under Waters’ leadership, the Southern Conference expanded to 12 members, added three women’s sports and posted record revenue from the basketball Tournament. Waters, who is currently the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference, was followed by Alfred B. White in 1998. White, a veteran member of the NCAA office, introduced the current SoCon logo and elevated the conference’s commitment to marketing and development of corporate partners. He became the president of the Asheville franchise of the National Basketball Development League in 2001. Danny Morrison headed the conference from 2001-2005 and orchestrated the league’s move from Asheville, N.C. to historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. Under Morrison’s leadership, the conference increased its marketing and promotional efforts. Championship History The first Southern Conference Championship was the league basketball tournament held in Atlanta in 1922. The North Carolina Tar Heels won the tournament to become the first recognized league champion in any sport. The Southern Conference Tournament remains the oldest of its kind in college basketball. The Southern Conference began sponsoring women’s sports during the 1983-84 season. That year, league championships were held in volleyball, basketball and tennis. Cross country joined the mix in 1985 and the league began holding indoor and outdoor track championships in 1988. Most recently, the conference instituted golf and softball championships in the spring of 1994 and added soccer in the fall of 1994. The Southern Conference currently declares champions in 10 men’s sports - football, soccer, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, baseball, tennis and golf and nine women’s sports - soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track & field, tennis, golf and softball. Basketball Men’s basketball was the first sport in which the conference produced a championship. The league tournament is the nation’s oldest, with the inaugural championship held in Atlanta in 1922. Not only was the Southern Conference Tournament the first of its kind, the league also helped change the face of college basketball. In 1980, the league began a season-long experiment with a 22-foot threepoint field goal with the approval of the NCAA Rules Committee. Ronnie Carr of Western Carolina made the first three-point field goal in college basketball history in a game against Middle Tennessee State on Nov. 29, 1980. Another college basketball tradition that originated in the SoCon is the traditional cutting of the nets by the winning team. According to USA Today, the practice of net cutting originated in 1947 with North Carolina State head coach Everett Case. As a first-year head coach, Case led the Wolfpack to the SoCon Tournament title. To commemorate the event, Case celebrated by claiming the nets as a souvenir of the win. Basketball coaching legend Red Auerbach gives credit to former George Washington coach Bill Reinhart, who coached in the SoCon for nearly 30 years, as one of the originators of the modern fast-break. West Virginia’s 10 tournament championships are still the most in league history. The Mountaineers were led by the incomparable Jerry West from 1958 through ’60. West, a two-time All-America selection, spurred West Virginia to the Final Four in 1959. The Mountaineers lost in the championship game that season to California, 71-70, but West

2007 Review

Other Sports In baseball, Wake Forest advanced to the championship game of the NCAA College World Series in 1949. Demon Deacon second baseman Charles Teague was named the CWS Most Valuable Player. The Citadel made history in 1990 by becoming the first military school to make an appearance at the College World Series. The Bulldogs were joined that season at the CWS by current conference member Georgia Southern. One of the Southern Conference’s more famous baseball alums is Duke’s Dick Groat. The Blue Devil shortstop, who was also a basketball standout, was the conference’s Athlete of the Year in 1951 and 1952. He went on to a 14-year career in the major leagues. In 1960, he was named the National League MVP after he led the league in batting with a .325 average for the World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates.

ball fields have been Atlee Hammaker (East Tennessee State), Jeff Montgomery (Marshall) and Mike Ramsey (Appalachian State). Other SoCon players to go on to a career in the major leagues include Angels third baseman Dallas McPherson (The Citadel), pitchers Britt Reames (The Citadel) and Ryan Glynn (VMI) who both pitched with Oakland in 2005 and Furman’s Tom Mastny, a pitcher with the Cleveland Indians (2007). Arnold Palmer, perhaps the most famous golfer to have ever lived, competed under the Southern Conference banner as a collegian at Wake Forest. He took medalist honors at the Southern Conference Tournament in 1948 and 1949 and was the tournament’s runner-up in 1950. Palmer was the medalist at the NCAA Golf Championships in 1949 and 1950. He went on to become one of the most accomplished golfers to play on the professional tour. Palmer won 60 tournaments while competing on the PGA Tour and has added 10 more victories as a member of the Senior PGA Tour. He has also won eight major championships - four Masters, two British Opens, one U.S. Open and one U.S. Amateur. Women’s sports are relatively young in the league’s history. In 2007-08, the Southern Conference will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary of women’s championship. Furman golfer Dottie Pepper was named the Southern Conference Women’s Athlete of the Decade in conjunction with that event. Appalachian State’s Mary Jayne Harrelson won the NCAA Outdoor title at 1500 meters in 1999 and 2001. Furman’s Brandi Jackson won the NCAA Women’s Golf East Regional in the spring of 2003. Coaches and Administrators The Southern Conference has also been a breeding ground for some of college athletics’ most recognized coaches and administrators. Legendary basketball coaches Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and Everett Case of North Carolina State both worked the sidelines in the Southern Conference. Rupp guided the Wildcats to a 30-5 mark during the 1931 and 1932 seasons. Yet, for all his coaching accomplishments, Rupp never led Kentucky to a Southern Conference tournament championship. Case mentored the Wolfpack to six consecutive Southern Conference Tournament championships from 1947 through 1952. Lefty Driesell coached Davidson to three Southern Conference Tournament championships in 1966, 1968 and 1969. Driesell also won the league’s Coach of the Year award four straight times from 1963 through 1966. Former Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins earned league Coach of the Year honors three times in the late ’70s and early ’80s while at Appalachian State and is in his first season as head coach at the College of Charleston. Terry Holland saw his basketball coaching career take off at Davidson when he returned to his alma mater in 1970. Holland was honored as the Southern Conference Coach of the Year for three consecutive seasons from 1970-72 and led the Wildcats to the conference tournament title and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 1970. J. Dallas Shirley, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, spent 21 years as the assistant to the commissioner and supervisor of officials in the Southern Conference. He also served as president of the International Association Basketball Officials and the United States Olympic Basketball Committee. Even the legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant got his coaching start in the Southern Conference as he guided the Maryland Terrapins in 1945. A legendary Southern Conference football coach is the late Frank Howard of Clemson, who guided the Tigers as a league member from 1940-52. The incomparable Howard won 69 Southern Conference games which still ranks tied for fourth on the league’s all-time coaching victories list. The Southern Conference has been represented on the sidelines at five Super Bowls in recent years. Bobby Ross, who piloted the San Diego Chargers to the 1996 Super Bowl, was the head coach at The Citadel from 1973-77. Former Buffalo Bills head coach Marv Levy directed William & Mary from 1964-68. He was succeeded at William & Mary by Lou Holtz. William & Mary competed in the Southern Conference from 1936-77.

earned Final Four Most Valuable Player honors. West was a three-time Southern Conference tournament MVP, a two-time league regular season MVP, and was twice named the conference’s Athlete of the Year. He went on to a spectacular career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1979. He was a 14-time NBA All-Star while with the Lakers. It is West’s silhouette that comprises the NBA’s globally recognized logo. Frank Selvy set the NCAA record for points in a game while at Furman. As a Paladin senior on Feb. 13, 1954, Selvy scored 100 points in a game against Newberry, a record that still stands. Selvy was the Southern Conference Most Valuable Player in 1953 and 1954 and the league’s Athlete of the Year in 1954. He went on to a 10-year career in the NBA. Rod Hundley was another West Virginia star during the 1950s. “Hot Rod” made a name for himself as one of the most spectacular players to tour the league during his era. Hundley averaged 24.5 points per game in his three seasons as a Mountaineer and was an all-conference and all-tournament performer in each of those three years. He was the Southern Conference Most Valuable Player and Athlete-of-the-Year as a senior in 1957. He was the first player selected in the 1957 NBA draft and enjoyed a six-year career in that league. East Tennessee State’s Keith “Mister” Jennings made his mark on the college basketball world in the early 1990s. Despite standing less than six feet tall, Jennings was a two-time all-conference choice and the league’s Player of the Year and Athlete of the Year in 1991. Jennings played with the Golden State Warriors of the NBA. More recently, Western Carolina’s Kevin Martin was a first round pick of the Sacramento Kings in 2004. Martin was second in the nation in scoring as a junior at 24.9 points per game before leaving a year early for the NBA. Besides West Virginia’s team in 1959, the Southern Conference has been represented in the Final Four on two other occasions. North Carolina advanced to the NCAA championship game in 1943 before falling 43-40 to Oklahoma State. North Carolina State finished third in the tournament in 1950. Women’s basketball competition began in the Southern Conference in 1983-84 with seven teams. In the sport’s history, seven schools have won the league’s tournament at least once with Chattanooga winning 10 and Appalachian State owning six titles. UNC Greensboro won the 1998 tournament as head coach Lynne Agee became the first coach to take a team to the NCAA Tournament in all three Divisions - I, II and III. In 2001, Chattanooga head coach Wes Moore became the first coach in NCAA history to take three different teams to the NCAA Tournament in all three Divisions. Since 1984, seven different teams have claimed at least a share of the regular season crown. Chattanooga has the most overall titles with 12, six of them shared. Chattanooga owns the most outright championships with seven. Only three players have won the conference Player of the Year award twice: East Tennessee State’s DeShawne Blocker in 1992-93 and 1994-95; Furman’s Jackie Smith, 1997-98 and 1998-99; and Chattanooga’s Damita Bullock, who won the award in 2000 and 2001.

Located on the banks of the Ashley River, the $19.5 million state-of-the-art ballpark opened in 1997 giving The Citadel and The Southern Conference one of the top collegiate baseball facilities in the nation. With seating for 6,000, Riley Park is named after the long-time Charleston mayor who is a 1964 graduate of The Citadel, Joseph P.

The all-tournament attendance record was set in 2004 when more than 35,000 fans attended Riley Park, an average of 2,343 per game. Over 300,000 patrons have attended the 18 previous SoCon Baseball Tournaments held in Charleston. The City of Charleston and The Citadel have hosted the tournament since 1990.

he 2007 Citadel Baseball team entered the season with a lot of expectations for the newcomers and relied upon them to fill crucial holes left by many of the graduated seniors in 2006. Freshmen occupied the middle infield and played pivotal roles in the pitching staff as the Bulldogs looked to the veterans to add much needed guidance and experience. The freshmen did not disappoint as they stepped up and made an immediate impact from the very first game of the season. Kyle Jordan and Bryan Altman immediately became mainstays at shortstop and second base, while right-hander Raymond Copenhaver proved he was one of the go-to guys out of the pen. Righty Matt Reifsnider and left-handers Chris McGuiness and Nick Sprowls emerged as dependable options on the hill, while Richard Jones overcame a slow start and had a power surge for the Bulldogs as both designated hitter and catcher.

ished the year with a 34-27 mark, giving head coach Fred Jordan 30 or more wins in 15 out of his 16 seasons. The Bulldogs fell to Wofford in the championship game after defeating No. 2 Western Carolina in the first round and downing No. 3 Elon twice to send the Phoenix home. The seventhseeded Bulldogs seemed destined to have a storybook ending, but the Terriers played their hearts out to give their coach a nice going away present after announcing his retirement. For the second consecutive season, the Dogs hold the runner-up spot as The Citadel has participated in the championship game in three of the last four seasons.

The Bulldogs began the regular season with one of the best starts in school history with a 15-5 record, including a 7-6 upset over top-seeded South Carolina and a season-long, seven-game winning streak.

with a 5-1 win before the Cougars swept the Bulldogs for the first time in history. The Bulldogs hit a six-game losing skid as they dropped their first two contests to UNC Greensboro before winning game three, 10-3. The Citadel then earned their second victory over a nationally ranked foe with an 8-6 win at No. 30 East Carolina. From there, The Citadel traveled to face No. 7 South Carolina for the second time. The Gamecocks had a better fate this time as they downed the Bulldogs, 12-3, at Sarge Frye Field. The Citadel won four of their final seven games to round out the regular season. Georgia Southern’s 10-game winning streak came to an end at Riley Park as the Bulldogs won the first two over the Eagles. The Cadets defeated Charleston Southern in a mid-week match-up before heading to Greenville, to face Furman where the Paladins took the series and sealed seventh place for the Bulldogs in the SoCon standings. Not only did The Citadel make a remarkable run to the tournament championship, the Bulldogs set several team and individual records while four players earned SoCon recognition and two others received national accolades. Traditionally a pitching and defensive club, The Citadel displayed offensive power throughout the 2007 season. The Bulldogs set two single-season records as they blasted 70 home runs, 16 more than the previous record set in 1997. They also collected 1,036 total bases to surpass the record of 1,009 set in 2000. The Diamond Dogs hammered out at least 10 hits in over half of their games played, including a seasonhigh 25-hit attack against Campbell in a 20-10 victory over the Camels. Five Bulldogs posted double-digit hitting streaks as Meade (16), Swauger (15), Arnold (14), Brown (13) and Altman


The Southern Conference

In addition to single-season home runs, the Bulldogs set records in 19 other career and single-season lists at The Citadel. Most notably, Swauger climbed up four career charts including fifth in doubles (53), tied for first in triples (14), fifth in home runs (28) and fourth in total bases (402), and earned a spot on three single-season lists as he finished sixth in total bases (150), fourth in at bats (256) and tied for sixth in home runs (15). Swauger was recognized for his performance on the field and in the classroom as he was named to the 2007 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Third Team. The junior was not the only player to receive national attention as Jones was honored as a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American as chosen by Collegiate Baseball. Jones, who was also tabbed Southern Conference Freshman of the Year and named to the All-SoCon Tournament Team, is the first Citadel freshman to earn All-America status since Philip Hartig received the honor in 1998 as a first baseman. Three other Bulldogs collected All-SoCon accolades as Brown made the first team and both Swauger and Meade were chosen for the second team. Brown and Swauger, along with Jones, were also placed on the All-SoCon Tournament team. Brown and Jones were recognized during the regular season as SoCon Players of the Week while Justin Smith and sophomore Matt Crim each earned SoCon Pitcher of the Week. The last time the Bulldogs had four players receive the honor in one season was in 2004.

1990 College World Series Who’d a thunk it? by Ken Burger — June 10, 1990

I

n the beginning, back in January, when they gathered to practice in warm-up suits and on some days could see their breath as they zipped the ball around the infield and the aluminum bats were cold to the touch, nobody gave it much thought.    Nor did early February send any signs. The season started as most do, lost somewhere between the end of football and the crescendo of basketball. They were winning a few games, there even appeared to be a pattern. But nobody really gave it much thought.     In fact no one, not even their coach, thought the 1990 Citadel baseball team would be much different from those that had come before. They were picked to finish sixth in the eight-member Southern Conference where only seven schools play baseball.     So who’d a thunk it?     That this band of unlikely heroes would somehow put it all together and battle their way to the College World Series. Certainly not the media. Certainly not coach Chal Port, who gave his usual preseason assessment of rebuilding. Probably not even the players, a group of 35 cadets with only seven seniors on the roster, almost all of whom are from South Carolina or neighboring towns in Georgia and North Carolina.    They would go through their season, do their best, enjoy the camaraderie and be able to tell their sons about playing baseball at The Citadel many years from now.     Nobody knew. Really. Nobody knew.     It wasn’t until late February, maybe early March, when their headlines started getting a little larger, moving to the front page of the sports section. Bulldogs win 10th straight. Bulldogs win 12th straight. Bulldogs extend win streak.     Soon the television stations were showing up at College Park to get snipets of the moment for the evening news. Win streaks are fun to follow. They give people something to talk about over lunch. How ‘bout those Bulldogs?     And then the streak got serious. As they approached the school record, still winning, the pressure started building. Seventeen. Eighteen. Nineteen straight. The school record was 22 straight. Now people were paying attention.     And they broke it, eventually winning 26 straight before losing to Kent State. The ride was over. The TV cameras didn’t come back for awhile. The team went into a mild slump, apparently returning to reality. Everybody could relax.     But the slump didn’t last. The Bulldogs started winning again, this time with a little less hoopla. And by the end of the season they won the Southern Conference regular-season title going away. No contest. Interesting. And to make things more interesting, the conference tournament was coming to Charleston for the first time. The pressure was on again.     By this time, however, the warm spring breezes of April found a Citadel team that had genuinely come into its own. They were loose. They were having fun. They had nothing to lose. And they didn’t. They dominated the tournament, won four straight, and

earned the right to travel to Miami for the Atlantic Regional. Everybody thought it would be a nice trip for the boys who had played so hard. Nobody thought they would have a chance.    But they did it again. Against unbelievable odds, they beat North Carolina State, East Carolina and the dreaded Miami Hurricanes twice to steal the regional crown and a trip to Omaha, Neb., for the College World Series.     So who’d a thunk it?     Nobody was more surprised by this time than Port, a veteran of 26 years of coaching Citadel baseball teams. He had seen teams with more potential go south. He had seen some with less do well. But he had never had a group like this.     By now the city of Charleston and the Palmetto State were getting a little giddy about this club. The Citadel, yes, The Citadel was in the College World Series. What a trip. What a story. Everybody thought it was great. Nobody thought they had a chance.     And when they arrived in the Midwest, they didn’t. Not really. The other teams were loaded. Real contenders. The Bulldogs were just an aberration, a novelty. The only military school to ever make it to the final eight. Everybody talked about how they had to march and what great manners the boys had and how Port was one of the funniest, most entertaining coaches around.     They lost their first game to Louisiana State, 8-2. People thought, that’s OK, at least they made it this far. Nobody expected them to do anything anyway. One more loss and they’re gone. They made a good showing. Got on ESPN.     Then they played the game of their lives. Trailing Cal-State Fullerton 4-1 going into the seventh inning, they rallied. Port did some of his magic coaching and strained every ounce of talent and ability out of his team. They won, 8-7, in a 12-inning drama that few will forget.     So they had done it. They had at least won a game in Omaha, proving they belonged, that they weren’t a fluke. One more loss and they’d be coming home.     It came the next night, against LSU, again. This time it was 6-1, a loss relayed back to the fans by radio because ESPN couldn’t show it live due to its major-league obligation. It was probably better that way. Hearing it was less painful than watching it.     And at 4:07 p.m. the next day, they touched down in Charleston. The end of a long odyssey. The season that couldn’t have been, had been. They became and remain the most unlikely and humble of heroes.     For through their efforts they gave us all something to cheer for, and gave themselves something to remember forever. It was one of those things that wasn’t supposed to happen, but it did. And those are the best kind.     Who’d a thunk it? Ken Burger is executive sports editor of the Charleston Post and Courier.

2007 Review

History and Records

LSU 8, The Citadel 2 June 2, 1990 • College World Series Omaha, Neb. by Bob Lang of The Post and Courier

Series debut. Byrd, a sophomore right-hander, picked off three Citadel runners and stranded five others to lead Louisiana State to an 8-2 victory before a crowd of 7,000 at Rosenblatt Stadium and a national television audience on ESPN. …In Saturday’s game, which began under cloudy skies and ended in bright sunlight, The Citadel had 12 hits to LSU’s 14. But the score wasn’t closer because Byrd (17-5) kept getting the Tigers out of innings with Bulldogs on bases. “We were getting our hits,” Citadel coach Chal Port said, “but Byrd was capable of shutting our runners down in scoring position. We never really took control away from him.” Byrd’s biggest inning was the second, when The Citadel had a 1-0 lead and the bases loaded with one out. At that time, LSU coach Skip Bertman visited Byrd on the mound. The Citadel’s Dan McDonnell, a .203 hitter with 39 strikeouts on the season, and Gettys Glaze, a .319 hitter who doubled in the first inning and scored on a single by Billy Baker, were on deck. “I felt Paul’s stuff could overpower these batters,” Bertman said he told Byrd. Bertman was right. Byrd struck out both McDonnell and Glaze. …The inning did crush The Citadel which wasn’t the same afterward, and it gave new life to LSU. …Ken Britt, who started on the mound for The Citadel, was hoping for a similar ending in the bottom of the third with two outs. But he had no such luck, as Wes Grisham singled a 3-2 pitch to right to score Ron Lim.

The Citadel 8, Cal State-Fullerton 7 (12 innings) June 4, 1990 • College World Series Omaha, Neb. by Bob Lang of The Post and Courier

Omaha, Neb. — They don’t get much crazier than this. The Citadel overcame seven errors and a 4-1 deficit to eliminate Cal State-Fullerton, 8-7, in 12 innings Monday at sun-splashed Rosenblatt Stadium and remain alive in the College World Series. “I thought that was one great game,” Citadel coach Chal Port said after the marathon contest that lasted three hours, 31 minutes. “It was not great baseball, but, my God that was exciting.” The seventh-seeded Bulldogs kept an estimated crowd of 5,000 and an ESPN audience on edge while avoiding defeat when the Titans had potential winning runs in scoring position in the bottom of the ninth and 10th innings. But Gettys Glaze and Hank Kraft came through with remarkable displays of relief pitching to defuse Fullerton’s threats. With one out, Glaze struck out 2 with runners on first and second in the 9th. Kraft struck out one and forced the other to ground out with one out and the bases loaded in the 10th. Third baseman Tony Skole, who singled in a go-ahead run in the 10th, did it again in the 12th. This time the single scored Anthony Jenkins, who made a spectacular diving slide for the winning run. Fullerton posed one final scare in the bottom of the 12th when the Titans had their best hitter, Mate’ Borgogno, at the plate with the potential tying run at second. But Kraft, in his 26th relief

appearance this season, struck out Borgogno looking on three pitches. … “As the old saying goes, it’s better to be lucky than good,” Port said. “That’s certainly true for this game.” … “We had the situation we wanted,” Fullerton coach Larry Cochell said. “It just didn’t break for us. We had two or three situations we wanted. You have to credit The Citadel.” The Bulldogs seemed to be headed for elimination after six innings, trailing 4-1. But before they took the field in the seventh, Port made wholesale changes. Port replaced starting pitcher Richard Shirer with Brad Stowell, moved Chris Coker from first base to shortstop, switched Billy Baker from right field to first base and put Mike Black in right field. After Stowell walked his first batter, Port replaced him with Glaze, who had been catching. Larry Hutto replaced Glaze behind the plate. “What we did was not unusual for us,” Port said. “We won the championship game in the Southern Conference Tournament the same way. We’re limited in our personnel, and I’ve got to ride the horses that we’ve got.” The Citadel vs. Cal St. Fullerton June 4 @ Omaha, Neb. 1990 College World Series • Game 2 THE CITADEL Branham, DH Hutto, C Kraft, P Glaze, C-P-C Jenkins, LF Coker, 1B-SS Baker, RF-1B Skole, 3B Rychlick, CF Elvington, SS Mays, PH Black, RF McDonnell, 2B Shirer, P Totals

LSU 6, The Citadel 1 June 5, 1990 • College World Series Omaha, Neb. by Bob Lang of The Post and Courier Omaha, Neb.— The Citadel’s dream season is over. Louisiana State pitcher John O’Donoghue provided the wakeup call, holding the Bulldogs to one run on eight hits to lead the Tigers to a 6-1 victory Tuesday night in a College World Series elimination game. It was only appropriate that the largest crowd ever to watch a Citadel baseball game — 14,614 — was on hand at Rosenblatt Stadium to witness the last game of a most remarkable year for the Bulldogs, who finished with a 46-14 record. The fans gave The Citadel a standing ovation while the teams shook hands and the stadium announcer said over the speaker system, “Thank you, The Citadel, in your first trip to the College World Series. You have a fine bunch of kids. Thank you coach Chal Port.” … “We were very fortunate to tiptoe past The Citadel,” LSU coach Skip Bertman said. “They’re America’s team — touched by Abner Doubleday himself. A real field of dreams.” …(Citadel right-handed pitcher Billy) Baker had a no-hitter going through four innings, but the Tigers killed that in the fifth by scoring three runs on four hits to take a 3-0 lead. …The Bulldogs had runners in scoring position with two outs in both the fifth and sixth innings, but O’Donoghue ended the threats with a pop-up and strikeout, respectively. In the seventh The Citadel started another two-out rally, which produced the team’s only run. Jason Rychlick got the rbi, blooping to left to score Chris Coker, who led off the inning with a single.

“You’re Citadel Men, you have no pension for failure, you Wear the Ring, you never let a friend down, you will be good fathers, husbands, and leaders in the armed forces and industry, those around you will forever be attracted to the shining light in your lives, and you will guide others in your path of success, you are strong in heart, body, and mind. You have deep interests in protecting such things as Honor, Fidelity, and all matters unmaterial in nature. Your virtues will matter not only in wealth, but in the richness of family, you are the last of the knights.”

~ The Honorable Ronald Reagan 40th President of the United States

This is The Citadel


Bulldog Style “Belief, Faith, Trust” Over the past 16 seasons, head coach Fred Jordan has seen his Bulldogs win seven SoCon titles and advance to the NCAA Regionals six times. A former Bulldog pitcher, Jordan has established the Bulldogs as one of the hardest working and most consistent teams in the country. Hard work is what “Bulldog Style” is all about. With talent that can compete at any level, Jordan instills the words “Belief, Faith, Trust” into his players and by the time spring training rolls around, they are not just words, but a way of life on and off the diamond. Jordan’s players never leave the field with a clean uniform or without dirt on their faces. Many around the Southern Conference point to this as the reason the Bulldogs have been so successful since Jordan took the reigns in 1992.

traditionally rank in the top-30 in the nation in earned run average, while also being one of the top pitching teams in the SoCon. Jordan’s pitching staffs have won seven conference ERA titles during his tenure. Jordan is not only a pitching guru, but his teams have produced superior hitting numbers and play exceptional defense as well. He has seen over 80 players hit over .300, while 24 have stolen over 20 bases in a single season. During his 16 seasons, The Citadel record books have been rewritten and the majority of the offensive records are held by hitters under his tutelage. Jordan’s clubs regularly lead the conference in fielding percentage, including in 2004 when the Bulldogs’ set a new single-season record with a .974 mark.

Since Jordan arrived, every player that has been All of these factors can be summed up in nine recruited by him has won at least one Southern words ... “The Citadel Baseball. Not Just a SeaConference Championship. His pitching staffs son, but for a Lifetime.”

The Dream Britt Reames Pittsburgh Pirates

The Citadel boasts 22 players who have played professional baseball during the Jordan era, 14 of which have been pitchers. In 2006, two Bulldogs went on to the professional ranks as hurler Ryan Owens signed with the Houston Astros and shortstop Matt Matulia was selected in the 24th round of the MLB amatuer draft by the Chicago Cubs. Owens left his mark on The Citadel’s all-time career lists as he tied Mike Pendleton for ninth place in all-time starts (39). The Summerville, S.C. native finished his career with 11 wins and four saves in 241.2 innings pitched, while also accumulating 207 career strikeouts. Matulia was the 719th pick overall by the Cubs. In his final season, he was tabbed the best defensive shortsop in the SoCon by Baseball America. Matulia tallied a .295 career average and made an assault on The Citadel’s career charts during his tenure as a Bulldog. He finished tied for third in games played (236), fourth in at bats (875), sixth in hits (258), 10th in total bases (365), tied for nineth in doubles (48) and tied for eighth in triples (8). Of note, former Bulldog Chip Cannon was named the 2006 Arizona Fall League Most Valuable Player as he represented the Toronto Blue Jays on the Desert Dogs. Cannon was chosen in the eighth round by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2004.

The Citadel

They couldn’t remember if it was sunny, cloudy or rainy but they did recall meeting in Athletic Director Eddie Teague’s office on the second floor of McAlister Field House. They were certain, however, that it was hot outside. Forgive these aging men if they can’t recall minor items like the day’s weather. After all, it was more than 30 years ago. On June 11, 1977, five volunteers from The Citadel Brigadier Club and two ex-officio committee members left Coach Teague’s air-conditioned office with papers in hand. Gen. George Seignious, The Citadel’s president, had endorsed the volunteers’ work and the hard-nosed Teague was pleased. Even the school’s attorney had given it his blessing. What those men walked away with on that suspected warm and humid day 31 years ago was the formation of The Citadel Athletic Hall of Fame. They brought a unique way to honor, recognize and keep the legacy alive of those who proudly wore the blue and white and who excelled on a higher plane on the various athletic fields, courts, rings, pools, ranges and tracks of competition. These celebrated combatants were clearly the best of the best. And they still are. The Citadel Athletic Hall of Fame Steering Committee consisted of Herbie Wilcox, his brother, John Wilcox ’56, Bob Daniel ’49, Bob McDowell ’55 and Stan Hurteau ’65. Jimmie Jones ’58 was the ex-officio member from the Brigadier Club and Jim Dodson ’55 represented the Association of Citadel Men. One of the first orders of business was that the Hall was to be jointly coordinated and operated by both the Association and the Brigadier Club. One benefit of membership in The Citadel Athletic Hall of Fame is receiving two free tickets to every home athletic event for life. Evidently, that perk was something that Teague, a hawk of a businessman, was reluctant to give away. “Eddie was tight,” Daniel remembers, “though he didn’t have much to start with. But I say with all sincerity that I was blessed that I was able to work with Eddie Teague. He was a wonderful man who was somewhat embarrassed to ask for anything, but he got things done.” Teague eventually relented, and the tradition of each Hall of Fame member owning two lifetime passes to all home athletic events continues. The first Hall of Fame induction ceremonies took place in Jenkins Hall and remained there until they were moved to McAlister Field House in the mid-1990s. The format for the ceremonies pretty much remains the same. The original class of inductees included Cecil Johnson ’11, Richard King ’29, W.F. “Gunner” Ohlandt ’51, Paul Maguire ’60 and John Small ’70. Today, there are 144 members in The Citadel Athletic Hall of Fame, of which 54 are deceased. Membership encompasses the sports of football, basketball, baseball, track and field, wrestling, soccer, boxing, rifle, tennis, golf and swimming. The Hall’s by-laws permit only four athletes and one “honorary” member to enter in each calendar year. Eighteen of the Hall’s inductees have entered as “honorary” members. Most of the honorary inductees are coaches while others are former administrators or boosters. However, one is a trainer (William Boswick) and another (George Norwig) is the first “Voice of the Bulldogs.”

This is The Citadel...

The Citadel is a state-supported comprehensive military college with the mission of educating principled leaders through its Corps of Cadets. Males and females are admitted to the undergraduate residential Corps of Cadets. In addition to the day program, undergraduate and graduate programs are offered through The Citadel Graduate College (CGC) in the evening. The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education recognizes The Citadel as the only specialized four-year college in the state. The Citadel, founded in 1842, is a co-educational military college with a rich and storied history. Located in Charleston, S.C., the institution offers a classic military education for young men and women who seek a college experience that is intense, meaningful and academically strong. Graduates of The Citadel say that the disciplined lifestyle and friendships they forged here have a profoundly positive effect on their lives. With an enrollment of more than 1,900, the Corps of Cadets is the nation’s largest military college program outside the service academies. All cadets are educated within a classic military system and about 40 percent of the graduating seniors earn military commissions. The remaining graduates attend graduate school or enter the job market. The Citadel Graduate College, which is noted for The Citadel excellence in a civilian environment, serves about 1,200 residents of South Carolina’s Lowcountry. Academic programs at the college are complimented by a strong commit-

ment to service and emphatic support of an honor code that calls upon a cadet not to lie, cheat or steal or tolerate those who do. Since its founding in 1842, The Citadel’s emphasis on character, as well as intellect, has produced generations of graduates who have served their nation, their professions and their communities with distinction.

Corps of Cadets ...

All students at The Citadel are members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets, which numbers approximately 1,900 and represent nearly every state, as well as more than 20 countries. While roughly 40 percent of the graduates each year go into the armed services, all cadets participate in an ROTC program. On most days, cadets have physical fitness training and military instruction in addition to their regular college classes. Weekdays end with a formation and required evening study period.


This is The Citadel...

Because The Citadel emphasizes corps unity, cadets cannot be married and all must live on campus in the barracks with their assigned company. Despite the challenges, cadets value their first year for the lessons in teamwork, selfdiscipline and time management. The disciplined lifestyle that begins in the knob year binds cadets into a lifelong, close-knit camaraderie that is one of the strongest forces in their lives after graduation.

Academic Programs...

Because of the strength of the academic program, The Citadel has repeatedly been rated as a top regional institution in the annual rankings issued by U.S. News and World Report. The quality of the education at The Citadel combined with the availability of financial aid, the credentials of the faculty and the graduation rate earned the institution the citation of Best College Value in the South in 1999. With more than 80 percent of its students returning each year, The Citadel enjoys one of the best retention records in the country. The Citadel’s 14 academic departments offer five bachelor’s degrees in 17 areas, six master’s degrees in 17 areas and specialist degrees in two areas.

The Citadel Graduate College...

The Citadel’s evening college serves the Lowcountry by offering nationally accredited bachelor’s, master’s and specialist degrees scheduled around the student’s profession, family and lifestyle. It is the well-known Citadel academic excellence in a civilian environment. The CGC offers 20 graduate programs with concentrations in education, psychology, computer science and business. The Master of Business Administration program is the only nationally accredited MBA program in the Lowcountry region of South Carolina. The CGC also offers three undergraduate evening programs in business and engineering. The Citadel is the only college in South Carolina that offers undergraduate civil and electrical engineering degrees in the evening.

Alumni...

Generations of Citadel graduates have served their nation, their state and their community with distinction. The Citadel graduates men and women with alert minds and sound bodies, who value honor, integrity, loyalty and patriotism, and who accept the responsibilities that accompany leadership. The Citadel remains a stronghold of duty, self-discipline and high ideals in a changing American society.


Academics

The Citadel Vision: Excellence in the Education of Principled Leaders Because of the strength of the academic program, The Citadel has repeatedly been rated as a top regional institution in the annual rankings issued by U.S. News and World Report. With more than 80 percent of its students returning each year, The Citadel enjoys one of the best retention records in the country. The Citadel’s 14 academic departments offer five bachelor’s degrees in 17 areas, six master’s degrees in 17 areas and specialist degrees in two areas. South Carolina Corps of Cadets: 1,964 Graduate Students: 1,174

Graduation Rate

The Citadel leads South Carolina with the highest four-year Graduation Rate at 62.4 percent, while the national average is only 30 precent.

Cadets receive gold stars for earning a 3.7 GPA or higher. The stars are worn on both sides of the colar of their dress uniforms and above the left pocket of their summer leave uniforms. The Citadel ranks No. 3 nationally among public colleges and universities in the Carnegie classification in the percentage of students who graduate in four years. That category includes colleges with master’s level programs. The latest data shows that 62.4 percent of entering freshmen graduated from The Citadel within four years. The national average four-year graduation rate is about 30 percent. The Princeton Review for 2006 named The Citadel School of Business one of the nation’s 237 best business programs. Among South Carolina’s public colleges and universities, The Citadel has the highest four-year graduation rate for athletes. More than 90 percent of cadet-student-athletes who have exhausted their four years of eligibility earn a diploma.

The Princeton Review for 2006 placed The Citadel in its top tier of academic institutions according to an academic ranking that measures how hard students work and how much they get back for their efforts. The ranking considered such factors as hours students study outside of class, quality of the student body, class size, student assessment of professors and other resources.


Band of Gold The Citadel Ring

Traditionally received during Parents’ Weekend as first class cadets, The Citadel ring symbolizes honor and the unity between The Citadel graduates. Worn proudly by alumni of all ages, cadets look forward to the day that they will be able to wear this band of gold with pride. The ring has symbolized outstanding accomplishments both by the Corps of Cadets and South Carolina. Perhaps the most popular feature of the ring is the “Star of the West”, which commemorates the firing on a Union supply steamer by a detachment of Citadel cadets in January, 1861. This action was the powder keg which set off the War Between the States. Every aspect of the ring is symbolic of the history and tradition of the Corps of Cadets from the Mexican War through both World Wars, to the present day. The Citadel is a military college and the leadership, courage and integrity found in good officers is embodied by the sword, found on the left shank of the ring. Crossing the sword is the rifle, the symbol of the infantry. Of equal importance in this world of political aggrandizement and perpetual military conflict are the concepts of freedom acquired and maintained only through a willingness to fight for it, represented by the rifle surmounted by the oak leaves of toughness and victory blessed by peace, represented by the laurel wreath. On the right shank of the ring are found the United States and South Carolina colors, which depict the unity of the state and federal government. The cannon balls at the bottom of this shank indicate the continuing link between the Old Citadel on Marion Square and the Greater Citadel. When the college moved to its present location, the Civil War cannon balls piled before the Old Citadel were left behind. The oval crest has a reproduction of the palmetto tree in its background. Aside from representing the state tree of South Carolina, the Palmetto symbolizes a cadet-trained regiment of infantry that fought in the Mexican War and it represents a fort, built of Palmetto logs, that repelled a large British invasion fleet during the Revolutionary War. The two oval shields at the base of the tree are replicas of the state seals.


Bulldog Mascots Bulldogs: ... noted for their vigor and composed disposition... they are fiercely loyal and their grip is very powerful against resistance... The Citadel has two bulldog mascots, Boo and General, whose main duty is to provide morale for the Corps of Cadets, faculty and staff and all of the Bulldog athletic teams. Other duties include barking at opposing teams, eating numerous dog biscuits throughout the day and being pampered by the cadets that help take care of them while school is in session.

General

General, who was born June 18, 2003, became the first live mascot to live on The Citadel campus since the 1950s. The mascot program was created by the Class of 2003, which wanted to leave a gift to the college. The class raised $1,000 toward the program’s startup. General was donated in August 2003 by the late Hazel Groshon of James Island, S.C. General comes from a long line of bulldog royalty. He is the nephew of UGA V, the former mascot for the University of Georgia. General’s other relatives include the bulldog representatives for the United States Marine Corps and Mississippi State University. General was named by Corps of Cadets following a contest to find the best name.

Boo IX

Boo IX was born on Sept. 30, 2003, and was donated by The Citadel alumnus Fred Ducker, ‘63. He joins General as a member of the two-dog mascot team that attends special events, football games, parades and anything involving the Corps of Cadets. Boo IX is named after Lt. Col. Thomas Nugent Courvoisie, a former commandant, and comes from a long line of Bulldogs that have been serving The Citadel for more than 15 years.


Campus The Citadel sits on a 300-acre tract of land on the Ashley River. There are 28 buildings grouped around a large (10-acre) grass parade ground. The buildings around the parade ground include 10 classroom buildings, an administrative building, four barracks, a student activities building, infirmary, chapel, a field house and library. Just off the main campus are the football stadium, baseball stadium and alumni center.


Honor

“A Cadet does not Lie, Cheat, or Steal, nor Tolerate those who do.” The Honor Code is fairly simple. This code, while simple, offers the key to living and maintaining an honorable life. Cadets are trained that there is never a situation in which they should participate in, or tolerate, dishonorable activities. These core values of honor and integrity are exactly the values which allow Citadel cadets and alumni to improve their organizations and their communities. Honor is the most cherished principle at The Citadel. In today’s post-corporate-scandal society, honor, integrity and ethics are in high demand. The Citadel strives to achieve excellence in the education of principled leaders, also known as the “whole person” concept. The Honor Code encompasses all aspects of cadet life, from academic integrity to personal integrity. It has evolved from an unwritten tradition known as the “code of the gentleman” to a formalized code in September of 1955, when the Corps of Cadets unanimously voted to establish The Honor Code. The development of a cadet into a principled leader is a four-tiered process that includes knowing, adhering, believing, and leading. Its culmination is seen in the cadets who internalize the Code and the alumni who continually apply it throughout their lives.

Cadet Prayer

Almighty God, the source of light and strength, we implore Thy blessing on this our beloved institution, that it may continue true to its high purposes. Guide and strengthen those upon whom rests the authority of government; enlighten with wisdom those who teach and those who learn; and grant to all of us that through sound learning and firm leadership, we may prove ourselves worthy citizens of our country, devoted to truth, given to unselfish service, loyal to every obligation of life and above all to Thee. Preserve us faithful to the ideals of The Citadel, sincere in fellowship, unswerving in duty, finding joy in purity and confidence through a steadfast faith. Grant to each one of us, in his/her own life, a humble heart, a steadfast purpose, and a joyful hope, with a readiness to endure hardship and suffer if need be, that truth may prevail among us and that Thy will may be done on earth. Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.


Cadet Creed

Leadership

I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of The Citadel and the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically tough, and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be. Gallantly will I show the world that I am a well-trained cadet. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress, and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow. And under no circumstances will I ever bring discredit to The Citadel and the South Carolina Corps of Cadets.

Graduates of The Citadel succeed because they know what it takes to meet a challenge in any field: patience and persistence, discipline and determination, teamwork and hardwork. The Citadel emphasizes athletic competition as a way to build leaders, learn teamwork and prepare for life’s challenges. Physical fitness represents a vital component of every Cadet’s experience. All Cadets take physical education courses and participate in one or more of our 28 intramural sports, 15 intercollegiate club sports or 16 NCAA Division I athletic programs. Graduates of The Citadel benefit from an invaluable lifelong association with other alumni. Talk to any graduate of The Citadel, and you will sense firsthand the powerful force of the strong alumni network.

Sir, Yes, Sir • Sir, No, Sir Sir, No Excuse, Sir “...three permissible knob answers: ‘Sir, yes, sir’ and ‘Sir, no, sir’ and—I liked this third one best of all—’Sir, no excuse, sir.’ By golly, I think, we ought to send the entire U.S. Congress down here to learn answer number three”... “Then I read this friendly advice in the book: ‘When you receive an order, carry it out to the best of your ability. Never argue or offer suggestions which you think might be better. This is not in your best interest.’ Well, it seems to me that The Citadel has a few things to teach the Cabinet and the Executive Branch, too! In fact, maybe we should just put the whole federal government through cadet training!” The Honorable Ronald Reagan 40th President of the United States May 15, 1993 Whatever their major, all cadets will graduate with a “dual degree” in leadership. They learn about attention to detail, respect, time management, and discipline. “Leadership is about integrity, trust and people. The Citadel, with its mission to prepare graduates to be pricipled leaders, is all about integrity, trust and people. There is no question in my mind that, had I not attended The Citadel to learn these values, I would not have come close to achieving what success I have been fortunate enough to achieve.” L. William Krause, ‘63 Retired Chairman of 3COM Corporation
