Rogers set to give Baldwin key senior leadership

BALDWIN — Terrell Rogers is ready for his third and final sports season as a Baldwin senior athlete.

Rogers was on the football team in the fall, on the basketball squad in the winter and is working for the baseball squad right now.

Baldwin’s season starts Monday at home against Crossroads Charter Academy.

Rogers will be at first base for new coach Cregg Bolles. He was at third last season.

“I’ve got a good glove,” Rogers said, adding that he’s confident of being able to haul in any type of throws that come his way at first base.

The Panthers have been struggling to get in practice time to be ready for the season.

Rogers hasn’t usually been a strong offensive leader for the Panthers, he admits, but he’s hoping to make contact this season and put the ball in play.

The Panthers hope to keep playing, steadily improve and be a competitive team by late May for districts.

There are currently 13 players on the team. Rogers expects some struggles for the first few games, before the Panthers find their groove.
