 CHAPEL HILL - University of North Carolina sophomore outfielder Brian Goodwin has been suspended for the 2011 spring semester for violating University policy. He plans to return to North Carolina for the 2011-12 academic year.

Goodwin, a native of Rocky Mount, started all 60 games last year, batted .291 and was a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-America. He led the Tar Heels last season in games started (60), RBI (63), triples (8) and walks (45).

This case is not related to the University and NCAA’s investigation into the North Carolina football program.

What a disgrace. Another Rocky Mount athlete has once again cast a shadow on the RMSHS program. It's time for athletes to be held accountable and that is exactly what Coach Fox did.

TO BEACHED: Mr. Brian Goodwin is far from being a disgrace, as a matter of fact he is a very intelligent and weel rounded young man both on and off the field. I do know this to be true simply because I have coached him and have watched him grow to be the successful young man that he is today and will be even more successful in the years to come... I PROMISE! So, you need to keep your comments to yourself if you don't know the whole story!

Brian made a mistake that Im very sure any of us would have done the same thing in our youth. I pray him much success in Florida at his new school and Im looking forard for many years to come watching him play Professionally in the Major Leagues. Keep the faith young man.
