College Baseball: Tobias to play ball at Ranger College
David Tobias, Jr. (D.A.), a recent graduate of San Marcos High, received an email in June from Ranger College inviting him for an evaluation camp with an opportunity to walk on to play baseball for the Rangers.
The 17-year-old second baseman and shortstop jumped at the opportunity, which meant the world to him, and will play in 2013.
"I don’t mind waking up every day and playing the game that I love," Tobias said. " My goals are to excel academically and to work hard in my position and be the starter."
In 2011, Ranger College (a community college) was the fifth fastest growing two-year college in the nation that boasts a solid baseball program where 90 percent of students are athletes.
San Marcos head baseball coach Bryan Webb, who also played at Ranger, knows just what kind of athlete Ranger is getting out of Tobias.
“D.A. is an incredible athlete and an even better leader,” Webb said. “He deserves this opportunity and I know he’ll make the most of it.”
