Hill Country Buzz not limited to the field

 By Austin Eck —   

 

It is a dream that many kids have dreamed. It’s a dream that drives a boy to stay late at the gym shooting free throws or drives a girl to practice dribbling a soccer ball until her legs are sore. The same dream motivates a quarterback to practice throws with a receiver until they cannot see the ball anymore, and the same dream keeps a baseball player in the batting cage until he can hardly lift the bat.  The dream is to play collegiate sports.

Lavelle Morgan, like so many other kids, shared that dream, and his dream came true. Morgan played in leagues beyond high school including in the minor leagues for the San Diego Padres and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
