At United the school year might be over but that doesn't mean they still aren't signing college letters of intent as today it was Joel Garza's turn. The do-it-all man for the Longhorns put his name on the dotted line to play for Claredon College in Amarillo. Garza says what impressed him the most was the head coach of the Bulldogs traveling over ten hours just to watch the Laredoan.
"Not every coach drives that much hours to see you play, so when he told me that, it really impressed me. I really liked how he talked to me, straight up and I'm excited to go to this program."
Garza was key in the Longhorns finishing the year with 34 wins and a number three ranking in the state and top 15 ranking in the country according to two polls. For the year he hit .415 at the plate with 22 runs scored and 20 driven in. He says he wants to be a physical therapist, only after a major league career.
