Announces decision to attend Texas Southern
It has been quite the last couple of days for Barbers Hill’s Camden Guarnere.
The Eagles top pitcher this past spring won District 21-5A Player of the Year recognition and this past weekend added more hardware to the top of his bookcase, while also finding himself a collegiate home to continue his career in the sport.
Guarnere was named the 2019 Southeast Texas Coaches Association Player of the Year over the weekend and on Tuesday he announced he will play at NCAA Division I’s Texas Southern University.
“I’m extremely thankful considering where I was in the fall and battling injuries and not really having a chance to even play so being able to have the year I did and be one of the main guys and leaders was really great,” Guarnere said. “I’ve been happy to see that the work I put in this off-season and the mentality I brought every game paid off.”
Guarnere made his announcement on his collegiate choice through his Twitter account after receiving multiple offers.
“Blessed to announce my commitment to further my baseball career and education at Texas Southern University,” he tweeted. “Thanks to everyone who helped me get here.”
He also is very grateful for everyone who was involved with his growth as a baseball player while he played for Barbers Hill.
“The award wouldn’t have been possible though without Coach (David) Denny and my teammates,” Guarnere said. “My teammates played really well all year for me and Coach Denny allowed me to be myself on the mound and encouraged me to be a ‘dog’ and a little crazy so when you have that support, of course success will come as long as you buy in to the team and trust your coach.”
