Charleston Southern Baseball Player Speaks About Losing His Mother in Shooting

Sharonda Coleman-Singleton was one of the victims in the senseless Charleston shooting.

Chris Singleton plays baseball for Charleston Southern, and the recent shooting in the church hit home for him.


Singleton's mother, Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, was one of the nine victims in the shooting. She was a high school track and field coach and a pastor at the church. Her son talked about the legacy she will leave behind.


"Honestly my knees are a little weak right now," Singleton said. "But I'm trying to stay as strong as I can while I press on."





Thank you #CSU family for supporting and praying for Chris and all the families impacted by Wednesday's shooting! #PrayForCharleston
