Former Saratoga Springs standout Rogan Fairfield commits to play for men’s basketball

The Fairfield men’s basketball program is coming off a season that culminated with an appearance in the MAAC championship game.

Mike Rogan, who starred at Saratoga Springs High School before transferring to South Kent School, wants to help deliver similar successes to the Stags’ program, which is led by head coach Jay Young.

“He has big plans for the future and I want to be a part of that,” Rogan said in a recent interview with The Daily Gazette. “Their coaching staff is awesome. Coach Young is a really nice guy. I think he will help me reach my potential in basketball.

Rogan recently announced his commitment to Fairfield. A 6-foot-7, 200-pound girth player best known for his long-range shooting, Rogan played two varsity seasons at Saratoga Springs and is now in his second year at South Kent, which is in Connecticut.

Rogan played AAU basketball for the Albany City Rocks, and said that Jim Hart – the founder of the AAU program – helped connect him with South Kent and its boys’ basketball head coach Raphael Chilius. In addition to Fairfield, 18-year-old Rogan had scholarship offers from UAlbany, Central Connecticut, St. Peters and Stony Brook, according to his Verbalcommits.com recruitment page.

I can focus on trying to win with the team.”
