Former Rider Tanner Rogen inks with Division 1 Oral Roberts
Former Rider player and coach Tanner Rogen is headed to Division 1 Oral Roberts in Tulsa, Oklahoma after he is finished with 2017 season at Scottsdale CC in Arizona. Rogen signed his National Letter of Intent on Tuesday morning with the powerhouse from the Summit Conference. ORU has won an amazing 17 conference championships in the last 19 years! Last year they went 38-21 overall, including 22-8 in the Summit. They also posted impressive wins over many big name schools such as Auburn, Mississippi St, Oklahoma, Kansas St, and Oklahoma St. They advanced last year to the NCAA Regional (final 64 teams) before losing to TCU who ended up in the CWS in Omaha NE. 
Rogen of course helped lead the Riders to their 2nd ever State Championsip in 2014. He was named MVP of the tournament. He went on to Williston State College, where his freshman season he tore his UCL and had to have Tommy John surgery. He spent the entire 2015-2016 year in Gillette attending Gillette college, rehabbing and coaching for the Riders. Last year he helped the Gillette Rustlers to their 2nd ever State B Championship. Rogen is now back and stronger than ever, consistently throwing 89-92 mph in his starts this fall in Arizona. Rogen will become just one of a few Riders to ever play NCAA Division 1 baseball.
"We are so proud of Tanner and this wonderful accomplishment, said Riders head coach Nate Perleberg. He is a true testament of where hard work, dedication, and resilency will take you. He is obviously a very talented young man, but his competitiveness and willingness to be coachable always separated him from the rest. Most guys would have thrown in the towel after his injury in 2015, but not Tanner. I watched him go through so much to get to this point, so it makes it that much sweeter. I'm just so proud of not only the type of player he is, but the type of role model and person that is. He is a very special young man to me and he has a very bright future ahead of him."

Harris commits to the University of Jamestown
Riders senior Joseph Harris has verbally agreed to play college baseball at the University of Jamestown in Jamestown, North Dakota. Jamestown is an NAIA school that belongs to the NSAA conference. Jamestown is well known for their successful baseball program under long-time head coach Tom Hager. Last season, Jamestown had their best record in program history going 52-11 and qualifying for the NAIA National Tournament. The Jimmies have won 9 conference titles under Hager, including 8 National Tournament appearances, 3 Regional Championships, and 2 World Series appearances. Harris will now look to follow in the footsteps of many former Riders who have had successful careers at Jamestown.

        UJ Coach Tom Hager on Harris: "We are excited to sign a blue-collar, hard working student-athlete like Joseph. He comes from a great program and has a ton of potential. We look forward to seeing him in a Jimmie uniform." 

        Harris has played in the Riders program from 2013-2017. Harris was a key part of the Rustlers team that won their first ever State "B" Championship in 2014. In 2015, he was a 1st team All-State member of the Gillette Rustlers team that finished 3rd in the "A" State Tournament. That finish is also the program's highest for the "A" division. Last season in his junior campaign, Harris was a part of a Riders team that finished an outstanding 57-25 overall and won their 3rd consecutive Conference Championship. He helped lead a very good Riders pitching staff by starting a team-leading 15 games on the mound, compiling a solid 7-6 record. He struck out 51 batters in 78 innings pitched. Harris also hit .248 with 25 RBI and 19 runs scored in 59 games played. He will be a key contributor in 2017 for the Riders both on the mound and in the field. 

        Coach Perleberg on Harris "Joseph brings a blue-collar type work ethic to the yard each and every day. You know what you are going to get with him and that is consistency and dependability each and every day. His work-ethic shows up not only on the field, but in the classroom as indicated by his 4.0 GPA. Another thing that stood out to me last season about Joseph was his unselfishness. We had a dire need for catchers early on the season and he took it upon himself to not only learn a new position, but to excel at it. I see Jamestown being a great fit for both parties involved, because of Joseph's drive and desire. Joseph is not only a great baseball player, but a great overall person and we are lucky to have him as part of our program. The Riders family is very proud of you and thanks you for your years of hard work and sacrifice in our program."

        Joseph currently has a 4.0 GPA at Campbell County High School and will graduate this May. He is the son of Brad and Delight Harris.
