The SC Generals are excited to announce the latest addition to General Nation in Shamir Rolle, a 6'7" 210 pound standout post man from CI Gibson in Nassau, Bahamas. Shamir played AAU for the New Providence Storm, and head coach Kevin Johnson.
This past season Shamir was the National MVP in the GSSSA regular season, averaging 12 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 blocks a game. Shamir was also named the MVP in the National Championship game, as he led his team to the title with 9 points, 15 rebounds, and 7 blocks. As a member of the Providence Basketball Club, Shamir led the team in rebounding and blocked shots in 2014. While playing in the D Squad Basketball Tournament, Shamir was named to the 1st-Team All Tournament Team as he led the tournament in rebounds and blocked shots.
Coach Smiley had this to say about Shamir: “This is a big signing for our 2014-15 class, as Shamir is an athletic post that can play either the 5 or 4. I had the chance to see Shamir live a couple years ago and was really impressed with his size, strength, and most importantly, his motor. Shamir plays extremely hard, is very active on the glass and is very mobile for his size. He’s been coached extremely well by Kevin Johnson in both High School and AAU, and should have an immediate impact on our program.”
