Why UT Tyler:
"I chose UT Tyler because it has an awesome environment with a lot of students, but a small-school feel. It allows me to receive an engineering degree and play the sport I love. Being a member of the UT Tyler baseball program is a very special honor. It means you are a member of a brotherhood that works for each other and not ourselves. Not a lot of players get to say that about their team. It's an honor to be in this program."
