Sellers’ appearance at the Kansas City Royals’ Single-A affiliate comes a year after Spencer Rattler threw out the first pitch and signed autographs at Segra Park.

While South Carolina head coach Shane Beamer has not named a starter for the Gamecocks’ season-opener against Old Dominion, he has said that Sellers exits spring and enters the summer as the Gamecocks’ starter.

“He’s been great,” Beamer said last month. “He’s just the definition of just steady and consistent. He’s a guy that just works really, really hard and very humble, has great humility about himself, but has a competitive streak, strong work ethic. And he’s just done nothing but get better in the weight room, academically, on the football field, in the meeting room, learning what we do offensively, and excited for him.”

Last season, Sellers completed all four of his passes for 86 yards and two touchdowns adding five carries for 51 yards and a score.

In the spring game, Sellers completed 9 of 11 passes for 70 yards to go along with five carries for 38 yards and a touchdown in limited action.

“It’s a great quality to have in a quarterback, just that steadiness where you’re not up and down and emotional and riding the waves and the highs and the lows,” Beamer said. “And he’s not like that at all. He’s a winner. He won a state championship in high school, obviously, and knows what it takes. So I’m excited about him and his future here at Carolina.”
