STOCKDALE -- While it’s not exactly rare, it isn’t exactly commonplace either, that an athlete from a Class 2A school receives the opportunity to continue competing at the collegiate level. So when three athletes from the same school in the same sport receive the offer, it’s a big deal. Throw in that all three are headed to the same school, and it’s cause for excitement. This is the situation in Stockdale.

With the swipe of their pens on April 11, Brahma running back Matt Valadez, offensive lineman Zach Pfeil, and linebacker Dylan Dunn all committed to Texas Lutheran University (TLU) and the Bulldog football team.

The three players are excited for a lot of different reasons. They are all thrilled to be playing college football, they are happy to be going to TLU, and are glad they get another four years together. But the three friends and teammates could easily have gone in different directions.

All three standouts had choices when it came to playing football at the next level. Valadez said he considered schools such as Howard Payne University, the University of the Incarnate Word, and Southwestern University. Pfeil also looked at Southwestern, but also had interest in Hardin-Simmons University up in Abilene. Dunn looked at both Hardin-Simmons and Howard Payne, but also considered East Texas Baptist University in Marshall. In the end, however, they all agreed that they wanted to be in Seguin at TLU, as members of the Bulldog football team.

Valadez said he is looking forward to getting to know different people, playing football, and being with his friends Pfeil and Dunn for four more years. Pfeil echoed the comment, adding that he is also looking forward to all of the traditional experiences that come with being a college student and athlete. Dunn added that he is looking forward to furthering his education.

Academically, Valadez plans to study kinesiology, and has plans to be a coach in the future. Dunn said the same thing, and is already eyeing the coaching program at TLU. Pfeil is undecided on what he will major in, but intends to be successful, and knows TLU is a great place to start.

As excited as they are about going to college, the guys admitted they would miss a few things about Stockdale.

“My family, the community, my teammates, and coaches,” Valadez said.

“I will miss playing on the field that I have played on since I was a kid,” Pfeil said.

“I’ll miss playing under those Friday night lights,” Dunn added. “There is nothing like it.”

The three have made a lot of memories in Stockdale, and said they will always remember their senior year. Not scoring against Bernard, beating Taft, and losing to Poth are all things that won’t easily be forgotten.

“I can’t say enough about these guys,” Head Coach Josh West said after all three signings. “These are three very, very good kids. Their work ethics are some of the best I’ve been around.

“They are also great leaders,” West added. “I know they will work hard and I expect big things from them at the next level.”
