My Nephews Accomplishment

My nephew, 11 year old Chris Pisella from Hutto, TX, won the local Texas Amatuer Athlete Federation of the Year Award.

He was given the award by the Hutto City Council.

He is an accomplished basketball player and he has played in several tournament. He won the local and regional Major League Pitch, Hit and Run contest and made it to Houston for the Texas finals.

He was recruited by Mojo Team from round Rock Texas and they won a national tournament. He was named to the National All Tournament Team.
He pitched, fielded and hit his team to the championship.

Round Rock is a suburb of Austin and he can be proud of his accomplishment.
He is certainly an accomplished athlete for his age.He won several games with his pitching.He also was an excellent hitter and homered in several games. Congrats Chris on being a star athlete at such a young age

Fishing Guy, that is a great sports story and family story.Have you got him lined up with the Cleveland Indians? If not, I'll have my son-in-law from Cape Cod recruit him for the Red Sox. They could use some extra talent right about now.
