ECU, Staff reports

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

East Carolina baseball pitcher Jake Agnos has been chosen to represent the Pirates and the American Athletic Conference at the 2017-18 NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., on Nov.16-19.

Agnos, a sophomore, serves on ECU’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and last year was a member of the Athletic Leadership Living Learning Community. The Athletic Leadership LLC curriculum analyzes members leadership strengths, their beliefs, different mindsets and behaviors, how they lead under stress, as well as how to lead others.

The NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Forum engages a diverse and dynamic representation of student-athletes, coaches, faculty and administrators. Student-athletes selected to attend the forum are led to return to campus with invaluable leadership skills, the experience of exploring the relationship between personal values, core beliefs and behavioral styles.

“This is a great honor for Jake,” ECU coach Cliff Godwin said. “Jake is the true definition of student-athlete who excels in the classroom and on the baseball field. He is and will always be a great ambassador for ECU and our baseball program. Jake will represent ECU and The American in a first-class manner.”

A two-time ECU chancellor’s list member, Agnos maintains a 4.0 GPA with an intended major in management information systems. Since stepping on campus in August of 2016, he has devoted nearly 60 hours in the community working with programs in the Pitt County area.

On the diamond, the left-hander appeared in 16 games -- making 10 starts -- as a freshman with a 3-3 record.

Hoops recruits

East Carolina basketball coach Jeff Lebo announced Wednesday that three players signed national letters of intent to ECU. They are Jayden Gardner (Wake Forest, 6-8, 225 forward), DeShaun Wade (Charlottesville, Va., 6-2, 190 guard) and Mike Wynn (Charlotte, 6-6, 185 guard). 

The trio will join the Pirate program starting with the 2018-19 season.

Gardner, who attends Heritage High, was voted first-team all-state as a junior along with CAP-8 player of the year. He was co-player of the year as a sophomore.

“Jayden is one of the top players in North Carolina and we’re excited that he’ll be joining our team next season,” Lebo said. “He is a physical and relentless rebounder with a high motor.”

Wynn is the other in-state signee, and he began his career at Christian Brothers Academy in Albany, N.Y., before transferring to Liberty Heights Athletic Institute in Charlotte prior to his junior campaign.

“Coach Lebo and Coach (Michael) Perry were there from the beginning,” Wynn said. “They told me that if worked hard, I would have a chance to make an impact next season.”

Wade averaged 12.4 points, 4.3 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game as a junior at The Miller School. He also is an honor roll student who played on the AAU circuit for Team Felton.

“The major factor is Shaun’s decision to be a Pirate is his admiration for Coach Lebo, not only as a coach, but as a former floor general,” Miller School coach Danny Manuel said. “Coach Lebo’s wealth of knowledge at the point guard position will certainly enhance Shaun’s development throughout his career.”
