First pitch at a home game in 2013.

Rockdale County High School and the RCHS baseball community honored the late Jordan Savage, a recent RCHS graduate, with a Lupus Awareness Night at the Rockdale vs Salem football game August 29.

The event, held in conjunction with the Rockdale Touchdown Club and the Rockdale Dugout Club, was a tremendous success, raising funds to fight and awareness of Lupus.

Jordan Savage was a recent 2014 graduate of Rockdale County High and great warrior to the Bulldog Nation. Savage battled Lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease. More than 1.5 million Americans and 55,000 Georgians fight this adversary every day. Armed with courage, wit, humor and determination, Savage fought courageously until he passed away earlier this year June 2, after graduating with the Class of 2014.

"Jordan was a tremendous son, friend, and student athlete," said Antonio Davis, Rockdale Dugout Club's President. Savage had been accepted into Oglethorpe University and planned to one day own the Tampa Bay Rays and move them to Charlotte.

"He was a special individual with the vigor, determination, and will to accomplish a lot. He will be truly missed," said Davis.

The Rockdale Dugout Club will present a check in honor of Jordan Savage to the Lupus Foundation of America, GA Chapter on September 19, 10:30am in the Rockdale County High School Library.

Donors can also help start the Jordan D. Savage Foundation, which his family is seeking to establish to help children from single parent households become involved in sports. To contribute seed money to the foundation, go to
