Former RCC Eagle’s Out Fielder Kyle Rowland of Reidsville was named to the 2015 ABCA/Rawlings Gold Glove teams for NJCAA Divisions I, II, and III.

Selections were made by each division’s respective sport committee. Rowland was a team leader and his performance as left fielder for RCC Eagles Men’s Baseball Team won the recognition.
“Receiving the award is a huge honor for me since only 9 baseball players are recognized across the country, explained Rowland. “I am proud of my time on the field at RCC and I definitely recommend enrolling at RCC after high school. Attending community college is the way to go.”
