Throughout his athletic career, Jamie Jarmon has had no shortage of decisions to make, with accomplishments spanning three varsity sports in high school. But this week, he was faced with his biggest decision yet. Back in February, the 2012 Indian River High School grad and outfield stand-out signed to play centerfield for the University of South Carolina, but earlier this week, with the 83rd overall pick in the second round of the Major League Baseball (MLB) draft, Jarmon was selected by the Texas Rangers.
Two weeks ago, I was giddy with excitement as my beloved Baltimore Orioles were shocking the nation, leading the American League, and were only a game behind the top spot overall in the MLB.
