We’ve shared a lot of memories with Sindarius Thornwell over the past four years, many of which have come during the team’s dream run to their first-ever Final Four. Much can be said about his career and what he’s done since stepping on campus in 2013 as a freshman from Lancaster, about an hour-plus drive north of the University of South Carolina campus.
While there’s a lot that will be written about Thornwell and his impact over the coming days and weeks it’s probably best for now - as we continue to reflect on this season - to hear from #0 himself as he thanks his fans, coaches, and fellow teammates for a memorable time in Columbia.
Thank you to the University of South Carolina for not only allowing me to represent this University but for allowing to grow as a person. Thank for sticking with me through the mistakes and and helping me grow and learn from them. Thank you to all of Gamecocknation for the tremendous amount for support you have given me these last 4 years. Thank you to my city/town Lancaster, SC for supporting me through it all and believing in me before anybody believed in me. Thank you Coach Frank Martin for being a positive role model in my life and teaching me how to be and man and take difficult moments head on instead of running away from them and for that I will forever love you. Thank you to my teammates over the last 4 years coming in everyday motivating me and pushing me and helping me get better you guys will forever have a brother in me. All of you have helped me and prepared me for my next chapter in life. With that being said, Sin City out !!! #Securethebag
Not really much more to add to that. Thank you, Sindarius, for all the memories and for what you’ve meant to Gamecock nation. Wherever you end up, we all wish you all the success in the world.
