Congratulations to Oak Ridge High School 2016 grad Mike Lawson on your commitment to Panola College!

Mike is a left handed hitting shortstop with serious offensive skills. He burst onto the scene last spring with huge output on one of the top 6A high school teams in the state of Texas. Mike also shows good glove skills and a power arm from the left side of the infield.

Mike is not about flash. He's just a ballplayer. He shows up to do his job and he works in a very business like fashion. He doesn't say much but every now and then he shows an infectious smile that shows that he's happy to be at the yard. A quiet guy with a loud bat, Mike has been a pleasure to have in the program.

Mike is another excellent young man of character and we expect nothing but loud performances from him at the next level.

Congratulations to the Lawson family!
