Congratulations to Giddings High School 2016 grad Dakota Best on your commitment to Mary Hardin Baylor University!

Dakota is an athletic, left handed hitting outfielder who can run. He's an exciting player who has the potential to be a run scoring machine at the next level.

Dakota is an easy to coach player. He does what's asked of him and he does it with max effort. He's a team guy. He plays hard... always... the ultimate compliment for a ballplayer.

The staff at MHB picked up a good one in Dakota. As he's done with us he will no doubt represent the Cru with the utmost character on and off the field.

Thanks Dakota, and the Best family, for trusting us and also being patient with us. The Lord knows what He's doing... In your ride with us He's tested you and no doubt shown Himself to be in control of Dakota's future.

Jereminah 29:11-13
