CORPUS CHRISTI - If you want to find a "sleeper" team in the High School Baseball Playoffs then head over to Texan Trail, home to the Ray Texans who have the roster to shock some people.
Ray has several arms and plenty of solid defensive players to carry them deep into the postseason. Ray's first test out of the gate will be Rio Grande City in a three game affair, this is the same team the Texans beat last year in the Bi-District Round.
"I think we're ready. We're playing a team we've seen before so we're confident and we're looking on the road ahead because we think we can go pretty far," said Pitcher Zach Smith
These two also met earlier in the Regular Season with Ray cruising 5-4.
"It's definitely confidence that we've beaten them once but like I said you can't take any team for granted you have to play them all like they're a big game," said Catcher Henry Hausman
And remember Ray is used to being in the playoffs; they have been to the Area Round the last couple of seasons, despite flying under the radar. So these kids won't be nervous or timid, instead they will be ready.
"Every year we plan to go farther and the group of guys this year have been working hard and our goal is nothing less than state so we are gonna keep fighting," said Shortstop Matt Merino.
