Boothe awarded NCAA Gold Glove

 

   SEGUIN – Texas Lutheran Bulldog Senior baseball player Jennings Boothe, a 2009 Cuero High School graduate, became the first Bulldog in school history to win the overall NCAA Division III Gold Glove. Boothe won the ABCA/Rawlings award for third base.

Sometimes small town kids get overlooked compared to larger schools. There are a lot of others who were just as good. I could not have asked for anything better.”
