Eagle Pass Sports Central has been authorized by C.C. Winn Mavericks head football coach and campus athletic coordinator Eric Villasnor to announce that standout Mavericks defensive tackle Carlos Tijerina signed his National Letter of Intent to continue his scholastic and athletic career with the Sul Ross State University Lobos located in Alpine, Texas on Thursday, June 1, 2017 at the C.C. Winn High School Library.

The two-sport standout Carlos Tijerina closed out a brilliant high school career for the Mavericks by being selected as the 2017 District 29-5A Most Valuable Player in football where he was instrumental in leading the mighty Mavericks to the 2017 District 29-5A co-championship, bi-district championship, area championship and UIL Region IV State semifinals where he was known as one of the most feared and respected defensive linemen not only in District 29-5A but in the entire Region IV Class 5A as well.

Carlos Tijerina closed out a banner high school career this Spring by advancing to the elite UIL State Track & Field Meet in Austin, Texas for the second time in his Track career where he placed a very respectable fourth place but during the year managed to set a new all-time City and School record of 174’ 3 ½” Discus Throwing mark at the UIL Region IV District 29-5A/30-5A Area Meet in Corpus Christi, Texas eclipsing the 32 year old previous record mark of 170’10” set by former Eagle Pass Eagles standout Rolando Salinas set in 1985 at the Metro Relays.

“Carlos possesses many Championship qualities that enable him to be the best.  He was a fearless leader on and off the field. He is a special individual that we are extremely proud of.” stated Mavericks head football coach Eric Villasenor.

Carlos Tijerina will now take his football gridiron prowess to Sul Ross State University for Lobos head football coach John Pearce. The Lobos upcoming football season will have them playing against Texas-Permian Basin, Mary Hardin Baylor, McMurry, Louisiana College, Southwestern, Hardin Simmons, East Texas Baptist, Texas Lutheran, and Belhaven.

 

Eagle Pass Sports Central congratulates young and talented Carlos Tijerina and wishes you the very best of luck at Sul Ross State University as well as in all of your future endeavors.
