If it's arms you are looking for, look no farther than Clear Springs. The District 24-6A power has hopes of parlaying its loaded bullpen into a district title and beyond. Coach Chris Floyd enters his 14th year as a head coach with big expectations.
With the staff of seniors Cory Patterson and Levi Ewert along with juniors Connor Habhab and Jacob Wingard, the Chargers are flush. The infield is on point with junior Jose Vargas (Houston) flashing the leather at short, while Parker Lee and Jordan Boothe hold down the corners.
Nash McMahon is a flash in the outfield. Dickinson, Clear Creek, and Clear Falls will be Clear Springs' biggest competition for the district title but pitching usually wins championships.
Clear Springs got its first playoff win since 2016 back in 2019. The Chargers were off to a good start in 2020 before everything came to a halt and could be in line for a historic year this spring.
Clear Springs brings back the likes of Texas Tech-commit Demi Elder at shortstop and LSU-commit Emma Strood in the circle. Catcher Kelly Baker is also back and is verballed to Independence CC. There is college talent on this team, now we just have to see if that is enough to carry the rest of the squad to some big-time playoff wins.
