Five years ago, a couple of pitchers made their college debuts on the mound at Rip Griffin Park in Lubbock, Texas.

On Feb. 21, 2015, one of those hurlers was Orland Park native and current Tinley Park resident Brad Wood. He pitched the sixth and seventh innings in a game for Northern Illinois University against Texas Tech, and the former St. Laurence star gave up a run on two hits in two innings of work.

Two innings later, a pitcher from Texas Tech made his college pitching debut with a 6-0 lead.
