Former Hornet sports stars generating buzz

Stingers up for two former Hornet athletes who are making news this week! Eric Stuteville became the first former Sacramento State basketball player to play in an NBA Summer League game when he suited up Sunday for the Sacramento Kings. The moment was acknowledge via Twitter by the men’s basketball program and subsequently covered by the Sacramento Bee.

The Orangeville native started all 31 games at center for Sac State last season.

Back East, a former Hornet is generating buzz on the basepaths: NBC Sports Philadelphia reports that it is “only a matter of time” before Rhys Hoskins, a first baseman who started 59 games for Sac State during his final season, is called up to the major league Philadelphia Phillies. Hopkins was the Phillies’ fourth-round draft pick in 2014, the fourth-highest drafted player in program history.
