|Lane wins prestigious awards|
Charlie Lane of Vidalia has always put his studies before his baseball career.
"There's a reason they call it student-athlete," Lane said. "The student comes first."
Lane has certainly lived up to that creed, earning the prestigious Stonestreet Award at Mississippi Delta Community College, as well as the Medal Scholar Athlete Award at the school's baseball awards banquet.
Lane, a three-sport star athlete at Cathedral High, posted a 3.89 grade point average at Mississippi Delta, located in Moorhead, Ms.
The J.D. Stonestreet Award, considered the most prestigious award at the school, goes to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of the student-athlete, including leadership on and off the field, as well as success in the classroom and on the playing field.
The trophy is named in honor of former Sunflower Junior College coach and math instructor J.D. Stonestreet.
Lane batted .250 this past season for the Trojans, playing third base and first base. He played the infield and pitched at Cathedral High.
"It was kind of a rough year because we had new coaches and a number of freshman on the team," Lane said
Lane said he enjoyed playing ball at Mississippi Delta.
"If you go Division I, it's a big step. In junior college, the coaches really look out for you and they don't have to deal with a lot of things like at bigger schools," he said. "And it gave me a chance to adjust to the next level."
Lane hopes to continue playing baseball at Mississippi College.
"I want to continue playing baseball as long as I can," he said. "It's always been a dream of mine and I love the game."
Lane plans on going into physical therapy.
"I want to stay in sports any way I can," he said.
But you can bet as long as he stays in sports, the academic part will come first.
"My parents (Mike and Patricia Lane) stressed that to me all the time," Lane said. "And it has certainly paid off for me."
