His 23 doubles in 2012 are second-most amongst the first-teamers and his homerun numbers place him as third most on the squad.

Collins, a senior from Waxahachie, Texas,  scored 62 runs during last season’s campaign, the second-most amongst Louisville Slugger Pre-Season First Teamers. His talents helped lead the Patriots to the championship round of the NCAA Waco Regional and earned him a place on postseason All-American squads. After spending the summer in the Northwoods League, Collins returns to Dallas to man centerfield in 2013 for Head Coach Dan Heefner and the Patriots of Dallas Baptist.

Dallas Baptist will open 2013 in the brand new, state-of-the-art Horner Ballpark against Creighton on February 15. Tickets can be bought at www.dbutickets.com or by calling (214) 333-5324. Suites, party decks, and catering options are also available.
