The A.C. Jones Trojan baseball team had a rough season but did garner a few postseason accolades for its key players.

Junior center fielder/shortstop Colt Burchett was named to the District 30-4A first team as an outfielder. Burchett used his speed to run down almost everything hit his way this year. Burchett was also one of the toughest outs at the plate for the Trojans.

Beeville third baseman junior Jared Carrillo was selected by the district’s coaches to the second team all-district for his play at the hot corner. Carrillo also showed some power this year at the plate with a strong bat, a good swing and some timely hitting.

Joining Carrillo on the 30-4A second team was junior Spencer Finch as a designated hitter. Finch usually played second base for the Trojans and always swung a good bat for head coach Tom Carrera.

Senior Jacob Gomez also was named to the district’s second team as a first baseman. Gomez split his time on the field between first and the pithcer’s mound for the Trojans and put up some big numbers at the plate for the Beeville boys.

The academic all-district squad included several Trojans. Making the elite student/athlete is difficult as the player must be in good standing with the team and maintain at least a 90 average in all of his school work.

Trojans earning this distinction include Benji Gomez, Jacob Gomez, Michael Gomez, Colt Burchett, Jared Carrillo, Brody Benavidez, Michael Rosas and Roland Salazar.
