Woodard, a native of Charlotte, N.C., was the 2006-2007 recipient of the Patterson Medal, given to the University of North Carolina's most outstanding student-athletes. The Charlotte native finished 34-5 as a Tar Heel with a perfect 22-0 record at Boshamer Stadium. A three-time All-ACC pick, Woodard is the only pitcher in Carolina history to rank in the career top 10 in wins, winning percentage, innings pitched and strikeouts. He also ranks among top 10 in Atlantic Coast Conference history in victories and innings pitched.
The right-hander led Carolina to back-to-back appearances in the championship round of the College World Series in 2006 and 2007. Woodard graduated from UNC in December of 2008 with a bachelor's degree in management and society. Woodard will begin working with the Tar Heels as UNC prepares for postseason play next week.
