OK, not really (after all, how many years can a guy be red-shirted and remain available?).
But Lanier still had a big night at the Rogers, Townsend & Thomas law firm’s “Honoring South Carolina Businesses” reception at the Zone at Williams-Brice Stadium Tuesday evening. He was one of the lucky winners of an autographed baseball, hence the picture with Coach Ray Tanner, coach of the National Champion Gamecock baseball team.
The coach and team were fresh back from their trip to the White House to meet President Obama, and the coach had a few good stories to share with the folks at the reception. (Actually, “fresh” might not be the right word, since they had gotten in at 4 a.m. But the coach was still full of energy for the gathering at the stadium.)
