Character

Golsan has exemplified senior leadership throughout his career, even in prior years prior, turning into a leader both on and off the field. He was voted as one of two team captains for the 2018 season and will settle in to the Ole Miss outfield for his senior campaign. He’s also shown flexibility as a player by moving multiple positions over four years, serving as a player his coaches can plug him into anywhere. Ask anyone around the Rebel Baseball program who they look up to, and Will Golsan’s name will most always come up.

Community

Golsan has been extremely active in the community throughout the years. He and the Rebels participate in Reading with the Rebels each semester, and he’s also taken part in the Bats and Balls Clinic. He and his teammates also collect money each year for Adopt a Basket, which is a program that allows for needy families to have warm meals at Thanksgiving.

Competition

Golsan entered 2018 primed for a big senior campaign in which he was voted one of two team captains looking to anchor the defense from centerfield. He was the only Rebel to start in all 57 games in 2017, and he carries a near-.300 career average at .292. He has 185+ hits in his three years and has tallied nearly 80 RBI. He had his best season yet a year ago, leading the team with a .312 average and team-high 69 hits, further proving he’s capable of an even bigger senior stint.
