"I had some offers from four year schools, but I saw Chattanooga State as an opportunity to pitch right away," Swindoll said, "to be seen by an entirely new group of scouts and to play for one of the top juco progams in the country."
Swindoll took the mound laterFriday as the 26-6 Commandersdefeated Marion County 10-0 in the Class A Sectional game -- advancing to the BlueCross Spring Fling Tuesday evening in Murfreesboro.
