Classroom

A three-time selection to the OVC Commissioner’s honor roll and UT Martin’s Dean’s List, Terry maintains a 3.83 GPA in sports management. Last year he was honored as an ESPN The Magazine/CoSIDA as an All-District IV academic team selection.

Character

Terry was named team captain for the 2010 baseball season as a junior, and currently serves as the president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter at UT Martin. Just this November, he was one of six recipients to win the Ohio Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete award, as selected from a group of 18 finalists by a vote of OVC faculty athletics representatives. Honorees must have performed athletically with distinction, earned at least a 3.25 GPA and conducted themselves in a manner that has brought credit to the student-athlete, his or her institution, intercollegiate athletics and the OVC. The award is based on academic and athletic accomplishments achieved during the 2009-10 school year.

Community

Terry is a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and has volunteered with numerous groups, including the Volunteer Reader program at the Children’s Center on campus and the Ronald McDonald House Can Tab/Toiletries Drive.

Competition

In 2010, Terry set several career highs for a team that broke 13 school records and produced its winningest season since joining the Division-I ranks in 1992. Shuffling between third base and shortstop, he hit .325 with nine home runs and 55 RBI for the Skyhawks. He also tallied 228 at-bats and recorded 164 assists, both all-time UT Martin single-season records. Terry has two lengthy hitting streaks to his credit (15 in 2009, 14 in 2010), and has served as the team’s ultimate ironman — starting 108 consecutive games dating back to his freshman year. He ranks in the top-10 of five career statistical categories: assists (383, second), runs (106, fifth), doubles (32, seventh), at-bats (522, seventh) and hits (154, eighth) and is well within striking distance of reaching the top of each of those lists with a healthy 2011 season.
