AGUA DULCE — Longhorns baseball standout Randal Garza picked up another postseason accolade this week.

The incoming Agua Dulce High School junior was named Third Team All-State as a first baseman by the Texas Sports Writers Association. Garza was tied with Zach Goree of Woden and Jaylon Mascorro of Refugio for the honor. The two were seniors this season.

In July, Garza gave Div. I University of Houston a verbal commitment to continue his baseball career there after high school.

Garza will graduate in 2019. His first two high school seniors have been impressive.

As a sophomore at Agua Dulce High School in the 2017 season, Garza was stellar. He ended the season with a .583 batting average and an on-base percentage of .658. He had 35 hits, 23 RBIs and 27 runs. Defensively, he had a .986 fielding percentage. He also proved to be one of the more dominant small school pitchers in South Texas.

Garza was an all-state selection by the THSBCA. Garcia was named second team all-state as first baseman. He was a first team selection in 2016.

A handful of other South Texas baseball players earned all-state honors by the Texas Sports Writers Association.

In Class 5A, Corpus Christi Miller pitcher Marcus Cantu was a second-team pick. Ray pitcher Nick Loftin was a third-team pick along with Moody catcher Nate Medina. Called third baseman Brandon Broughton and Moody’s Ramsey Flores were also on the list.

Third team selections also include Calallen outfielder John Gaddis and Moody outfielder Roy Sandoval.
