MURRAY, Ky. – Murray State University’s baseball program and head coach Dan Skirka recently announced the addition of former Georgia College assistant coach Kent Rollins to the coaching staff of the Division I Racers.
Rollins helped coach Bobcat Baseball for the past two seasons, which included back-to-back Peach Belt Conference championships. Rollins was an integral part of the Bobcats’ success in 2018, which saw the team reach as high as No. 1 in the nation and lead all of Division II in batting average and fielding percentage.
Prior to his time with Georgia College, Rollins played collegiately with Middle Georgia State College and Georgia Southern University. Rollins was also drafted out of high school in the 48th round of the MLB Draft by the San Diego Padres.
“After driving up from Georgia to meet with me, I came away very impressed and knew I wanted him to help lead the Racers,” said Skirka. “His knowledge and passion for the game shows and that will carry over with our development of our current players and recruitment of new student-athletes.”
The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup and the 2017 PBC Sportsmanship Institution of the Year, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
