I am a Javelina's Mom !

WTF does that mean ?
My son is going to be a Texas A&M Kingsville Javelina !
This was not just as simple as him picking a college. He is a track athlete and was being recruited by several colleges. Colleges from here ( Texas) to Kansas !
The process was very stressful, exciting and stressful. Did I say stressful.
After man months of fielding coaches phone calls, visiting colleges , thinking things over and the last school he visited things kind of fell into place by accident and he has decided to commit and go to A&M Kingville.
Best of all its only 3 1/2 hours away from MOM !

I could not be prouder of my son either.
School has not been an easy thing for him. He is legally blind in one eye ,has had 2 eye surgeries and is dyslexic . ( him Driving was a little nerve wracking for me to say the least ! ) He's had a rough time at school. Track ( he throws discus and shot ) was his outlet and motivation to stay in school . Now its his motivation to continue on and get the best education he can and do the best he can . He had handled himself like a true gentleman and well mannered young man through the recruiting process and the hardest thing for him to do was call coaches and tell him he was NOT coming to their school. I could not be prouder of him.

His track season is just starting ! Its going to be an amazing Senior year for him.
I am just glad the recruiting , college selection process is over !

Sorry I just had to share !


  1. Great job, he's a proper little gentleman for actually having the gall to phone up the coaches and give them the bad news. :)

  2. what a great accomplishment... for you both! Congrats!

  3. LOL@Ronnie, he so did not want to do that either, the coaches smooze those kids and are so nice to them he felt so bad . But I told him he needed to do it !
    Thanks Jen we are so proud of him !
