Earlier this season in Round Rock, home of the state baseball tournament, Flower Mound Marcus pitcher Colin Poché displayed the superior ability that has made a believer of his coach.
The senior ace limited a historically strong Coppell to four hits in Marcus' 2-1 victory.
Those who weren't there to witness Poché's talent that day may also not be aware of his 0.00 ERA through 57 innings pitched.
“You’ll most likely see him pitching on TV one day,” Marcus coach Dustin Sykora.
Poché has collected six wins in his senior year and has seen opposing runners cross the plate during his time on the mound. However, all runs under his watch have been unearned.
Sykora said his pitching star has everything you can ask for in a left-handed pitcher, including a tall frame that he’s grown into during his time at Marcus.
Poché has committed to Arkansas, but Sykora believes he won't set foot on campus with major league aspirations looming in the pitcher's immediate future.
Crazy finish for District 10-4A
Always strong Highland Park began district play already on the ropes. The Scots picked up their four 10-4A losses quickly, sitting at 1-4 through the first five district games.
However, the Scots haven't lost since falling to McKinney North and even knocked off previously nationally ranked Rockwall-Heath twice.
Rockwall-Heath sits in control of the district at 10-3 but could lose its grip to either Highland Park or Rockwall if it loses its final game of the season against Wylie East.
Both Highland Park and Rockwall have one game remaining as well.
Arlington Martin remains only DFW Fab 50 team
Martin (24-2-1) gained ground in this week’s ESPNHS Fab 50 poll, moving into the No. 33 spot after a big district win over state-ranked Weatherford. Martin previously sat in the No. 46 spot a week prior.
Leading the Texas pack is Corpus Christi Calallen at No. 7, followed by Corpus Christi Carroll at No. 21 and Deer Park at No. 25.
