Jester Placed On Website Header
DRYDEN--Neversink resident and 2013 MVP Tri-Valley Central School shortstop Rodney "Taylor" Jester has received the honor of having his picture placed on his college's website header, facebook and twitter accounts.
Following a successful freshman year at Tompkins-Cortland Community College (TC3) where he batted .333 with an On Base Percentage (OBP) of .349 and a Slugging Average (SLG) of .405 Jester will report for the fall league season on August 27.
TC3 Sports Information Coordinator Peter Voorhees noted that the college's website header "is the most visible image we have in athletics and it is the header on our website and the cover photo on our facebook and twitter accounts."
Voorhees said, "we generally keep the same image up for about a year."
"When it comes to the individual photos, we try to select students that we feel best represent our College and their respective teams," and "we start out looking for the best returning player on each team." Voorhees added.
The Sports Information Coordinator pointed out that, "all three of the images on this year's banner," men's baseball player (Rodney T. Jester, Tri-Valley H.S./Grahamsville, soccer player Hannah Wildenstein, Dryden H.S./Freeville and men's basketball player Joshua Spence, Bayard Rustin H.S./Brooklyn) "have great eyes and body angles that make the college logo or name visible and are good representatives of what we want our student-athletes to be.....a winning trifecta."
Jester last week completed summer collegiate travel baseball with the Northeast Pride Collegiate team.
