Since graduating from Trinity High School in his hometown of Bedford, Texas, Wes Engle has gone on to a distinguished career for the Texas State University baseball team.
At Trinity, the coaching of Will Averitt allowed him to earn kudos as all-district honorable mention in the pitching category, as well as the distinction of junior year overall MVP. Engle majored in geographic information science at Texas State, choosing the college over a handful of others like Houston, Texas Tech and Wichita State.
Now a senior, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound left-handed pitcher is capping his college career with a 6.30 ERA over three seasons of play, as his college bio reports. High points of the 2018 season include “a season-high six strikeouts in 5.0 innings of work at ULM (April 8) … went 5.0 innings with four strikeouts at Arkansas State (May 6),” according to his team bio.
The two previous years saw similar performance. In 2017, Engle was the starting pitcher in 12 games and achieved a 6.75 ERA over 53 innings. In 2016, his bio says he “finished the season 1-for-3 at the plate with a triple and RBIs.”
