The Thompson Warriors have been making strides of success over recent years in all athletics and now have their newest college commitment in the baseball program.

Senior outfielder D’Marion Terrell has pledged himself to Auburn University, committing to the Tigers and raising some eyebrows after a fantastic senior season with the Warriors.

The power threat posted outstanding statistics in his senior year. His .426 average was one of the best averages in the county to go along with the 42 RBIs that he put up throughout the season.

He posted 55 hits in his 129 at-bats. His strength with the bat showed with his .798 slugging percentage, which would eventually assist him in scoring 41 runs in the 2024 campaign.

Terrell was not only a massive hitting threat but a force on the mound as well.

The left-handed pitcher racked up a 6-3 record and a 2.12 earned run average in his appearances. He pitched 46.1 innings, striking out 38 opposing hitters and walking 40.

In total, Terrell gave up just 31 hits and 20 runs on the season, with 14 of them being earned.

His contributions helped lead Thompson to a quarterfinal appearance in the Class 7A playoffs this season, where it would ultimately lose to eventual state champion Bob Jones.

Now, Terrell will take his talents to the Plains after a successful career in Alabaster to help the Auburn Tigers take the next step towards returning back to the top of the SEC under coach Butch Thompson.
