The Wallace Community College baseball team beefed up its lineup Friday with three new signees for the 2011 season.

The Patriots welcomed Tonarrius Tate, Joseph Screws and Tyler Moseley to the squad with an official signing ceremony on campus in the gym.

Head coach Ronals Lane said he is pleased with the players’ attitudes as well as their abilities.

“This is a good group of kids,” he said. “They have an excellent attitude and want to contribute right away.” Tate, a guard for the Class 5A stat championship Wenona squad, will help the Patriot’s vertical game, Lane said.

“He is a leaper,” he said. “He can play all the guard spots and he is a super defender.”

Screws, a 6-foot-9 All State player from Barbour County, is “a big athletic shot blocker and an excellent rebounder,” Lane said. “He has the kind of game experience that has prepared him for the next level.”

Though Moseley may be small, Lane said he is a fierce competitor who can make things happen on the court.

“He is a quick point guard who can score who can really use the floor,” he said.

Moseley, an All state selection from Talladega High School, will allow the Patriots to speed up the game when needed. In addition to the three signees on campus Friday, Lane said the Patriots will also welcome Bilal Richardson of Stone Mountain and Fred Turner of Wilcoix Central.
