DCCC Storm basketball player Torian Showers signs with Fayetteville State University
April 17, 2013 – DCCC Storm star basketball player Torian Showers signed with Fayetteville State University at an on-campus ceremony. Showers played for DCCC for two years as a star player and will transfer to Fayetteville State to compete on the team's starting lineup.
"Talented and dedicated student athletes such as Torian Showers are receiving scholarship offers to complete their eligibility at the next level and further their education," notes DCCC Athletic Director Kenneth Kirk. "That speaks well for the quality and success of the Storm basketball program, giving our program credibility for student athletes coming to us out of high school."
Showers is originally from Georgia, but graduated from High Point Andrews High School before coming to DCCC to play basketball. He was recruited from DCCC by Fayetteville State University head coach Alphonza Key who saw DCCC play at Pitt Community College.
"The Storm basketball program creates a sense of unity for Davidson and Davie counties, bringing normal rivals together to cheer for the community college team," adds Kirk. "As our fan base grows, new groups of community members visiting our campus to support the Storm have the opportunity to see our campus and learn about the programs and services available here. We are very proud of that."
Three former DCCC players complete their college eligibility at four-year institutions this year. Justin Glover and Kimani Hunt are seniors at Winston-Salem State University, and Phillip Williams is a senior at Southern Wesleyan University in Central, S.C. Another former Storm player, Maurice Nash, is at Winston-Salem State and has one more year of eligibility.
