Jordan Etier has been reinstated on the University of Texas Baseball team. He will serve a four-game suspension at the beginning of the 2012 season and will no longer receive an athletic scholarship. He was kicked off the team last fall after being arrested on charges of evading arrest and marijuana possession.♦ Aggies looking for their own idol (theeagle.com)
At the time, DPS officers say Jordan Etier relieved himself in public, then ran from officers before disposing of some marijuana.
The Texas A&M baseball team is searching for the first ever "Aggieland Idol" who will perform the National Anthem to kick off games at the new Blue Bell Park this season.
Area residents are encouraged to try out for the musical talent contest at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 26 at Burkhart Auditorium in Kyle Field.
Annie Stoltenberg, a spokeswoman for A&M baseball, said contestants will have one minute to showcase their abilities and performances can include instruments and be the song of their choice.
"A live National Anthem is an old-time baseball tradition and we haven't done them at every game in the past," she said. "It was something that Coach [Rob] Childress really wanted this year."
Childress will be part of a three-judge panel that also includes Candy 95.5 hosts Frito and Alli.
