(Camden, S.C.) sports editor When you take a look at Devin Beckley’s football statistics from this past season, you have to wonder why some college did not try to sway the Camden High School senior from his decision to play baseball at The Citadel. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound right-hander’s heart, though, has always been on the baseball field and he was not about to let a possible last-minute sales job from a college football coach take away his diamond dreams. After having given a verbal pledge to The Citadel last spring, Beckley made good on his commitment by signing with Fred Jordan’s Bulldogs during the November signing period.
