An All-state player his junior year. This kid will definitely go D1. One of our favorite kids here in Banditoland. Don’t be surprised to see Erich playing at some top baseball program next year. This kid can do it all. In our opinion, he’s the best left-handed stick in the 2010 class. His glove isn’t too shabby, as well. A tall, slender build that can product a lot of power. Another Brenham product. A flat out stud.

Air Force Dwayne Snider – New Caney HS 2010

“The Cowboy”  Dwayne is a diamond in the ruff with tremendous upside.  Big league arm and everyone will see it soon.  A two hit shut out at Oklahoma State this past weekend as he was dialing it up at 88 mph.  Will be a big factor for New Caney as he is continuing to improve on his off-speed stuff.  The ability to be a big name player as he continues to get better day in and day out.  College is definitely in the future for this cowboy.  Can also flash some leather as well.
