A healthy Ross Hough is excited about next opportunity at Erskine
CAMDEN HIGHS ROSS HOUGH signed his National Letter of Intent to continue his academic and baseball-playing pursuits at Erskine College while flanked by his parents, Tony and Ann Hough. Pictured standing, from left, are CHS pitching coach Zack Rabon, CHS head baseball coach Denny Beckley, CHS athletic director Jimmy Neal, CHS principal Dan Matthews and CHS assistant baseball coach Brian Kersey.
Like an animal captured from the wild only to be held captive in a cage, Ross Hough spent his sophomore baseball season at Camden High School sitting in the dugout and waiting to hear his name called by head coach Denny Beckley to enter the game as a courtesy or, a pinch runner. This was uncharted territory for Hough who earned a starting job with the Bulldogs as a freshman before seeing most of the next season being curtailed when the left-handed pitcher and outfielder underwent Tommy John surgery on the elbow of his throwing arm in late 2012. By the time he was cleared to return to doing some activities, in the middle of the season, all he was able to do was to run for a teammate.
