Former Marjory Stoneman Douglas State Champion Rolando Lujo officially signed his letter of intent to play college baseball with Erskine College in South Carolina.

“It is an amazing feeling to officially sign and to know that I will get to play at the next level,” Lujo said.

After playing for two years on MSD’s varsity team, Lujo, the grandson of World Series Champion Rennie Stennett, hit .450 in his in 2020. He drove in 15 RBI’s and scored 23 runs, including 13, while helping the Eagles win a State and National Championship in 2021.

While Lujo will graduate this spring from Florida Virtual School, he will have the chance to practice with the Eagles. However, since he played four years of high school baseball, he will not be eligible to play in games. Lujo will continue to train with the varsity team and different parks in his hometown of Coral Springs.
