Another Laredo athlete signed his letter of intent today to play college baseball but this one is staying local. Alexander senior Danny Benavides put his signature on the dotted line to play for Chad Porter and the TAMIU Dustdevils earlier today. The Bulldog catcher was instrumental in the teams back to back runs to the state finals in 2011 and 2012. This years team was able to make it to the regional quarterfinals despite only having three seniors on the entire roster. Benavides is happy to be continuing his baseball career and the chance to play college ball in front of family and friends was too much to pass up. Benavides will enroll in the fall and plans to major in kinesiology with the hope of becoming a coach one day.
