WINCHESTER, Va. - We continue our look at the Class of 2016 by meeting baseball pitcher Eric Liskey.
Major: Sport Management
Sport Played: Baseball
Why did you choose Shenandoah? The school as a whole was a good fit for me. Academically, I knew the smaller class sizes were going to give me an opportunity to interact with my professors. Athletically, after I met with the coaches and some of the players I knew I would get a chance to grow and develop as a player so I felt like I found the right place.
Favorite Class and Professor: Sport Ethics with Dr. Wigley. It really makes you think about sports and sport related events in a different way. We also got to discuss our opinions with classmates and debate amongst ourselves. Dr. Wigley really gave us the freedom to explore every option and made sure we learned a lot about hidden ethical dilemmas in everyday sports.
What do you like most about playing sports at SU? The brotherhood with my teammates. Its like having a family here on campus with you. No matter what happens you can count on them and they can count on you. It really makes everything easier and way more fun.
Favorite thing to do in Winchester: Probably go to Appleland with a couple of the guys. We always come back with a good story or two.
Favorite SU Athletics Memory: Watching everyone go crazy after Darrell struck out the last guy in the championship game. It was great to watch the guys who had worked so hard reap the rewards.
What has playing athletics at SU meant to you? It has meant an opportunity to keep playing a sport I love in college. It also gave me a bunch of lifelong friendships with a great group of guys.
Post-Graduate Plans: Either a job to pay off student loans or grad school to rack up more student loans
Nobody knows that I... wrote and illustrated a book about dinosaurs in 3rd grade. Our teacher got it published and it went in the school library. I don't think I sold enough copies to get on the New York Time's Bestseller List, but I thought it was pretty good for a 3rd grader.
