Senior Chandler Lindsey signs to play basketball at Coker College

Surrounded by friends, family, teachers and teammates, Spartanburg Day School senior Chandler Lindsey signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at Coker College on Friday.

During his high school career, Chandler scored 796 points over 62 games and had 307 rebounds, 196 assists, 130 steals and 38 blocked shots. In his junior and senior years, he was named to the SCISA All Region, All State and All Tournament teams. He also helped lead the varsity boys' basketball team to its last two SCISA 2A state championships.

"Playing basketball at the next level is everything to me," Chandler said. "I've always dreamed about this moment, and for it to actually happen is an amazing feeling. My time on the Day School basketball team has been nothing but great times. I am grateful for my team and love all my teammates."

Athletic Director Rita Harrell said Chandler brought a unique strength to the team and will continue to be an asset at the collegiate level.

"Chandler came to SDS as a junior and stepped into the line-up of what was already a good team. His contributions to the team the past two years were immeasurable," Harrell said. "Chandler is a quiet player who led by example. His high-flying acrobatics on the court always brought the crowd to their feet and were some of the best highlights of the season. I wish him the best and look forward to watching him continue his career at Coker."
