CHARLESTON, S.C. – Former College of Charleston left-handed pitcher Shawn Holland (’02) will be inducted into the T.L. Hanna High School Hall of Fame on Friday, Sept. 2 in Anderson, S.C.

The induction ceremony will take place at 4:30 p.m. with a special presentation at halftime of T.L. Hanna’s football game against Boiling Springs High School with kickoff set for 7:30 p.m.

Holland’s performance on the T.L. Hanna diamond earned him a scholarship to the College of Charleston where he played from 1999-2002 and still holds the school record for career relief appearances (73) and ranks eighth all-time in career appearances (64).

A 1998 T.L. Hanna graduate and two-sport athlete in football and baseball, Holland was a three-year starter at tight end on the football team from 1996-98 averaging 17 yards per catch. He also played safety during his senior year and was named All-Region I on offense and defense. Holland was selected to play in the South Carolina North-South All-Star Football game, which honors the best players and coaches in the state.

In baseball, the lefty set several records as a pitcher for the Yellow Jackets. In his three-year high school career, Holland struck out 312 batters in 56 games, and his career ERA was 2.35. He also pitched a no-hitter. He was tabbed all-region during his senior year and was on the All-USA TODAY Honorable Mention Team.

A 2002 graduate of The College with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, Holland is vice-president of City Glass & Mirror Company in Anderson. He and his wife, Emily (née Ballenger), a former student-athlete at the University of Texas, have one son, Beckett.
