By ICC Media Relations

Itawamba Community College golf coach Dr. David Rather announced eight new players have signed to play golf for the Indians this season.

Scott Milam (Tupelo Christian Prep), Tyler Rosenthal (Shannon), Matt Belk (Shannon), Justin Ward (Shannon), Sam Warren (Tupelo), Aaron Carter (Tupelo), Dustin Poole (Belmont) and Chaz Robinson (New Hope) will join the four returning sophomores for the 2011 season that saw the Indians advance to the NJCAA Region 23 Tournament.

“We were very fortunate to get the class we were able to get for this season,” said Coach Rather. “I think they are outstanding young group of men and I’m really looking forward to working with them.”

Rather has turned out a pair of players to go on to the next level of the past two season with Bobby Parks (Saltillo) signing with Blue Mountain College last season and former NJCAA All-American Alex Rowland (Houston) taking his game to Mississippi State after representing ICC in the 2010 NJCAA DII National Tournament in Arizona.

“We’ll be young and some big shoes to fill from the past few seasons, but we’ve got four sophomores coming back that I’m expecting some leadership out of them not only on the golf course but off the golf course as well.”

ICC golf season includes six stops throughout the state starting on February 26 and 27at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Invitational at The Oaks Golf Club in Pass Christian, MS and will conclude with the MACJC State Championship on April 16 and 17 that the Indians will host at Riverbirch in Amory, MS.
