Do colleges drop the ball with student-athletes?

F. Michelle Richardson, an assistant professor of sports management at The Citadel and a former academic advising coordinator for athletes at University of California at Berkeley, said the NCAA should fill its ranks with more academicians -- former faculty, not just former school administrators -- who can help put more emphasis on scholastics.

Military heroes remembered during Memorial Day Crossfit workouts

But to Brady Vannoy, a judge advocate in the Army National Guard and Crossfit Discovery Daniel Island athlete, the hero attached to his workout is more than just a name. His friendship with Ryan Hall began at The Citadel. “I met him the first day we all showed up in 2000,” Vannoy explains. “We were roommates, in the same company. We enjoyed a lot of suffering together.” Vannoy recalls that his friend was very scholastic, finishing school near the top of their class. Hall was also a Summerall Guard, an elite silent precision drill platoon at the military college. The two remained close after graduation; Vannoy even credits Hall with steering him in his career.

Announcing the 70th Anniversary of The Class that Never Was: A Memorial Day and D-Day Remembrance (video included)

A Memorial Day and D-Day 70th anniversary remembrance: Rare film footage from The Citadel archives and the story behind the college’s Class of 1944 that became known as The Class that Never Was because of their service in WWII. 

Physical training, drills, inspections…old recruiting films from 1942 depict scenes of life in the S.C. Corps of Cadets. The Citadel’s films were once played at schools and theaters to promote the value of a military college education just as America was fully engaging in World War II and two years before D-Day. But cadets who were sophomores at the time of the filming were about to have their college careers interrupted in dramatic fashion.

Never Forget the Fallen On Memorial Day (written by Patrick Camia '99)

Growing up, I never understood what a day like Memorial Day meant. I always took it for granted and paid no attention to its significance. To me, it was just another day off from school. It meant more time playing with friends, seeing family, and eating lots of food. As I got older, I started understanding and appreciating what the day meant. It’s an opportunity to remember those who have fallen, giving the ultimate sacrifice for their country. I want to share with you two gentlemen who I had the honor of knowing and I will forever remember them for as long as I live...

Honor those who fell for freedom (editorial by Lt Gen John Rosa, Citadel president)

"Freedom is not free." Those words carved into the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., are not about the cost of defending our freedom, but about the ultimate sacrifice paid by our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen killed in combat.

This Memorial Day we honor those who have died in service to our country and thank those who currently serve in our armed forces.

Bulldog Season Ends with Loss to Wofford in SoCon Tournament

The Citadel's 2014 season came down to three at bats in the ninth, but Wofford closer Eric Eck proved up to the task, striking out the side to preserve a 4-2 win over the Bulldogs in an elimination game of the Southern Conference Tournament at Riley Park.  After walking Hughston Armstrong on four pitches and allowing a two-strike bloop single to left center by Bo Thompson, Eck fanned Tyler Griffin, Drew DeKerlegand and Johnathan Stokes to move the Terriers along in the tournament.

Citadel baseball faces tough questions after season-ending loss to Wofford

A Citadel baseball season that began with high hopes and big wins sputtered to an unsatisfying end Thursday as the Bulldogs were dismissed from the Southern Conference tournament. A 4-2 loss to No. 6 seed Wofford at Riley Park ended the season for the 10th-seeded Bulldogs, who went 1-2 in the tournament and 24-33 overall, just their fourth losing season in 23 years under coach Fred Jordan.

Guest column: Citadel president, a local, comments on meaning of Memorial Day

Knowing the sacrifices our service members make, I am proud when I see a third of our graduates choose a military commission and take the oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Because of our close association with military service, The Citadel has a solemn connection with Memorial Day. Citadel graduates have served in every war since the Mexican War when, on Nov. 6, 1847, J.H. Howell became our first alumnus to fall in battle.

“It’s always been my dream to go to military school and graduate as an officer, and be a leader,” he said. Brooks received an Army ROTC Scholarship.

“The big thing that really pushed me, besides friends there, is you can go in whatever branch you want,” he said about graduating from The Citadel. “It’s gonna be hard, but I’m ready for it.”

Davidson's 9-7 win puts Citadel baseball on brink of SoCon elimination

Two comebacks in two days was too much to ask for The Citadel's baseball team.

After a 9-7 loss to No. 2 seed Davidson on Wednesday at Riley Park, the 10th-seeded Bulldogs face an elimination game Thursday against No. 6 Wofford at 1 p.m.

Either The Citadel's disappointing season will come to a disappointing end, or the Bulldogs' drive for a miracle finish in the Southern Conference tournament will continue.

The Matty Matthews legacy (scroll down)

Clay Matthews Sr. is the son of former Citadel boxing coach Matty Matthews. Clay Sr. was a Golden Gloves champion, and an all-state football player at Charleston High School.  Along with playing football at Georgia Tech, Clay Sr. won two SEC wrestling titles. He also made the swim team. Surely, his four-year NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers would have been more productive had he not served in the 82nd Airborne Division during the Korean War.

Marine Major recovers from sniper's bullet to race in gruelling Dirty Kanza ('01)

The degree of difficulty wasn’t all that sparked Kutilek’s interest in the Dirty Kanza. While he was born in Cincinnati, he grew up in Wichita, Kan., where he lived from the third grade until he was 18 and “got dropped off at The Citadel,” where he graduated from in 2001 with a degree in history. Wichita is about two hours south of Emporia.  How he decided on raising money for the Semper Fi Fund, Kutilek said, is “a crazy story,” going back to his days as an instructor in 2006 at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. The school staff wanted to teach the students that included future Marine officers about “giving back” to the community, including charities.
