    Six years before Hurst was a first-round pick of the
    Baltimore Ravens
    , he was a promising pitcher in the
    Pittsburgh Pirates
    minor league system
    A little known fact.

    On the subject of mental health is sports, you all need to keep Lavonte Valentine in your thoughts and prayers. There was a post on another gamecock site with regards to his social media. He apparently he had a rather painful post with regards to depression and his battle with it. It did not sound good, and hopefully the athletic staff gets on top of it right away.

    Thanks for this. Depression is a serious illness but it can be treated.

    As a parent of a child that suffers from depression and anxiety I can see it needs to be more openly talked about. Took me a long time as an "old School" tough guy growing up to even get my mind around my daughter. I thought it was just a phase and at times thought she needed to get over it, but now I realize that it is very serious and something that she wants to badly not to have to deal with. Doing my best to support her in any way I can, but it is a tough road when you don't know exactly how to be a parent and support all at one time. My wife and I worry about her every day and are trying to find the right mix of professional health. The number of people that are "counselors" is large and finding the right one that truly is a counselor, not just in name is tough. Sorry for the long rant, but I appreciate people like Hayden coming out and talking about this issue.

    Apparently, Hayden Hurst was one of the first ones that reached out to him.
