Saints Player Signs to Crowley's Ridge College

Shawnee Community College

Shawnee Community College's Saints Basketball player, Cameron Ballard, has just signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at Crowley's Ridge College in Paragould, Arkansas.

Cameron is a Pulaski, Illinois native and has played on SCC's Saints team for two years as a guard. Ballard was very active at SCC with Student Support Services (SSS) and playing for the SCC Saints. He is the son of Craig and Melanie Ballard.

Cameron's stats at SCC were outstanding. He averaged 1.7 points per game and his field goal percentage was 37.2%.

Coach John Sparks stated, "Cam is one of the toughest guys on this team for the last two seasons. His heart and toughness will truly be missed. They are getting a great athlete, but a much better individual. We are excited about the opportunity that Cameron has to continue his education and athletic career at Crowley's Ridge College."

Cameron's career goals are to earn his Bachelor's degree in Sports Medicine and to play basketball overseas after college.
