"Receiving a scholarship from Coach meant more to me than he might have known at the time. I had been working my whole life to get to where I am now, and his support showed me that if I continue to push myself in everything I do, I will be rewarded. Now I have a new sense of home and of family. My teammates and I have bonds that can’t be broken."Derrick Rowland ’20

Derrick Rowland ’20, a marketing major, was awarded a full athletic scholarship as a result of a recommendation by the men’s basketball coach, Ted Hotaling, who witnessed firsthand Rowland’s dedication and work ethic. This past season, Rowland excelled academically as well as on the court and was named to both the NE10 Academic Honor Roll and the NE10 Honorable Mention All-Conference Team.
