FLORESVILLE -- After lighting up high school opponents as a four-year letterman at Floresville, Erica “Goose” Hernandez will continue to play basketball after graduation as a member of the Southeastern Louisiana University Lion basketball team.

Southeastern Louisiana in Hammond, La., was the best fit for Erica. While she considered other schools, including Texas State, Southern Methodist University, and Wichita State, it was her “automatic bond” with Coach Lori Davis Jones that solidified her decision.

“I just felt really comfortable with the coach, and all of the team,” she said. “I also liked the level of community involvement.”

Erica said Coach Jones runs a program similar to what Coach Greg McWilliams has at Floresville, and she feels it will be a natural transition.

“Erica will have an immediate impact for our program,” Jones said in a press release. “She can score in a variety of ways, handles the ball well, and can really fill it up from long range.

“Erica’s an extremely savvy player and a gym rat,” she added. “We’re excited to have someone with her talents and work ethic join our program for the next four years.”

While her path on the court seems clear, her choice of studies is still a bit foggy. Erica said she isn’t sure what she will major in, but confirmed it won’t be math, her least favorite subject. She is looking forward to the entire college experience, but is most excited about her opportunity to play basketball.

“It will be at a totally different level,” she said. “I’m excited, but nervous too.”

Erica averaged nearly 20 points per game en route to being named the district’s MVP last season, and her focus for the 2011-12 season will be in putting points on the board. With almost 1,800 career points to her credit, she has proven she knows how to get the job done.

“We are very proud of our daughter,” said Erica’s mom, Michele. “She has worked very hard to accomplish her dream of playing basketball at the D-I level, but if you ask her she would tell you that she was just doing what she loves to do -- playing basketball. We are very happy she has chosen Southeastern Louisiana University.”
