"The conditions were everything (Tuesday)," said Rogan. "You had to be mentally tough out there. It was really windy and the rain was awful. But it was a lot of fun. It was a great day."
College of Charleston Head Coach Mark McEntire said he was very proud of Rogan.
"I'm excited and glad I was able to be there to watch Shane achieve this accomplishment," he said. "We have one of the best players in the state of South Carolina coming to join us next fall. It is important to bring in players that have the championship experience and have had the success that Shane has had. I feel like we have a solid recruiting class and we are headed in the right direction for the program."
