SAN MARCOS – Baseball can get in your blood. Just ask former Trojan Jared Carrillo.

Carrillo played three years on the varsity while at A.C. Jones, mostly at third base for the Beeville boys. His family history in baseball goes back five generations. It is definitely in Jared’s blood.

Great-great-grandfather Faustino (Puma) Pumarejo was a pitcher and played in several semi-pro leagues back in the 1930s. Grandfather Oscar Carrillo played and is presently still coaching a select team of youngsters from Beeville. Father Blayne Carrillo played for the Trojans back in the 1990s and was a strong influence on Jared taking up the game with many a backyard session with his son.

Jared has continued the baseball heritage by attending Texas State University. He does not have a scholarship to play baseball but could not just shut down his love of the game. He does not play on the intercollegiate varsity squad but spends what extra time he has, along with around 20 other players, competing on the Texas State Bobcat club team.

He played third base and shortstop for the Trojans, and he’s at third again for the Bobcats. Jared is one of the top hitters on the team with an average above .300 and has played the right way, for the love of the game.

“I am just so proud of Jared and keeping the family love for baseball alive. It may be just a club baseball team, but he loves the game,” said his mother, Jennifer Flores.

The Bobcats were sitting atop the Gulf Coast Region about a week or two ago after a four-game sweep of the University of Houston’s club team and had one final weekend date with contender Lone Star to determine the East champion.

If the Bobcats win or lose, Jared will continue to play the sport he and his family love.
