Another Greenbrier High School product was taken today in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.

Rowland, the 14th pick of the 21st round, helped the Greenbrier Wolfpack win a pair of Class AAAA state championships in 2006 and 2007 before signing with Georgia Tech after his senior year. He was a high school teammate of Rich Poythress, who was drafted Tuesday in the second round by the Seattle Mariners.
