Congratulations to College Station High 2016 grad Mathew Bennett on your commitment to Samford University!
Mathew is one of the original Twelve members. This year is his 10th in a Twelve uniform.
Mathew has an outstanding feel for the art of pitching. He has consistently shown the ability to carve up good hitters and induce the valuable and sought after ground ball. Mathew's body type, his understanding of how to pitch, and his delivery suggest that his ceiling is high and that he has only scratched the surface of what he can do with a baseball.
Mathew is also an extremely high performer in the classroom and he was recruited by several IVY league institutions this summer.
More important and more impressive is the kind of young man that Mathew is developing into. He is a leader on and off the field. He is a man of integrity and character. He is an outstanding representation of his Lord, his family, his school, and the Twelve program. Well done Mathew.
Congratulations to the Bennett family!
