Congratulations to Hudson High School 2017 grad JT Penick on your commitment to Dallas Baptist University!

JT is a slick fielding defender. His primary position is shortstop but he can flat out defend any position on the field. This summer we put him on the mound and all he did was pump 90mph fastballs! Already being recruited as a shortstop, the 90mph pitching ability only helped to open even more doors.

This kid is a ballplayer. He's going to impact the game for the #Patriots on the mound, in the field, in the batter's box, in the dugout, in the clubhouse, in the classroom, and just about anywhere else you can think of because that's just what winners do.

JT is also an outstanding young man of character. Extremely well liked and respected by his teammates and coaches JT is a natural leader. He's a must-have player if you're looking to do things the right way and win ball games... a natural fit in a Twelve uni.

You did it right JT. Keep doing it.

Congratulations to the Penick family!
