    Lancaster High School senior defensive end Ervin Moore knows all about transition.

    He recalls playing against Lancaster in his freshman season when the Red Foxes downed the Bruins, 30-19.

    Hammond, a freshman at the University of South Carolina at Lancaster where he plays on the Lancers’ baseball team, is a Lancaster High School graduate. He produced a solid baseball career with the Bruins.
