Two Whitecaps baseball players sign National Letters of Intent

12

Two Galveston College baseball players on Nov. 13 signed National Letters of Intent to play with Texas universities.

“We are excited to be sending another two student-athletes to outstanding NCAA Division I programs in our region,” said Whitecaps Head Coach Kevin Lallmann. “Each of these students is a solid player with an excellent record. It’s another great day to be a Whitecap.”

Those signing letters of intent included

Jaycob Deese, a right-handed pitcher from Houston, University of Houston.

Roberto Gonzalez, an infielder from Katy, University of the Incarnate Word.

During Coach Lallmann’s four years at Galveston College, the Whitecaps sent 28 players on to the NCAA Division I level, had two players drafted in the MLB draft and had another player sign as a free agent.

The Whitecaps also have continued a tradition of academic excellence each year, with an impressive cumulative team grade-point average in excess of 3.0.

Nov. 13 marked the first day of the early signing period as athletes across the country signed their National Letters of Intent.
