Agua Dulce first baseman Randal Garza is again an all-stater.

In the latest round of all-state selections by the Texas Sports Writers Association, Garza was one of four South Texas players named on the Class 2A all-state list. Garza made the team as a first baseman.

R.J. Galvan outfielder was also named all-state. Galvan played in Alice as a sophomore and junior. As a senior, he played football in Alice and then transferred to Three Rivers where his father, Frank Galvan, is the head baseball coach. Galvan returned to Alice High School to graduate here.

Galvan signed with the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio to play college baseball this coming season.

Also on the 2A list was Riviera third baseman Gabe Castillo and Refugio pitcher Jared Kelly.

For Garza, the honor is one in a long line of honors. Garza, a junior during the 2018 season, was named Second Team All-District recently by the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association.

Garza finished this season as the District 31-2A Offensive Player of the Year. He was the Longhorns’ ace on the mound. He started at first base when not pitching.

A year ago, before his junior year, Garza gave Div. I University of Houston a verbal commitment to continue his baseball career there after high school.

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 a first baseman. He was a first-team selection in 2016.

Garza gained plenty of exposure in the Houston area and the country this summer playing for the Banditos Baseball Club, which has a reputation of helping young baseball talent to the next level.

Garza won’t officially sign with the Cougars until his senior year.
