Two more Brownfield High School Athletes signed letters of intent to keep their sports careers ongoing and both Zach Muniz and Devin Rodriguez will do just that at Sul Ross State University

Tennis athlete Devin Rodriguez will be heading to Sul Ross to play tennis. When asked if beating Shallowater was his most defining moment this season he said, “I would have to say so, it was one of the easiest matches I played.” His most memorable time in the almost four years of playing tennis he said, “My most exciting time would have been in Levelland when I had beat one of their top players, and it was the longest match I’d ever played.” Devin had several District Honors and a couple a District Championships along the way.

According to Devin, he does not know if he will be playing singles or doubles, but just the chance to continue on is great with him. Devin also plans on studying Animal Science while at Sul Ross and wanted to thank God, his family, and friends for the support and helping him get to this place.

Basketball standout Zach Muniz helped lead the Cubs Basketball Team to two consecutive playoff appearances. Last season helping the Cubs catapult themselves into a postseason toward the end of district and eventually falling to Monahans in the second round of the playoffs. Fast forward to this season, the Cubs were well on their way for a great run. Dropping to 3A and with Zach back as a senior and his fellow teammates they would surely make some noise and that they did, however, falling to Brock in the Region I-3A Semi-finals game, who was number one in the state all season. It was a good two seasons for Zach, racking up points and district honors.

When asked about going to Sul Ross and the next level, Zach said that “I’m really excited and thankful for this opportunity, not many people get this opportunity to move on.” Zach was also asked about the past two seasons and how did he stay with it? He said, “It was the grind for it, you know when you want something, you gotta work for it, nothing is going to be handed to you in the real world, so you gotta work for it.” Zach plans on studying Kinesiology and go into education, most likely a coach in the future. Zach said, “I want to thank everyone who came out today, my mom, my dad, and everyone who help get me here.

According to a couple of BHS coaches, there could be more athletes signing to play sports in college in the next couple of weeks.
