Dylan Bowman, a senior at Gilmer High School, was just notified that he was selected to play in the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association All Star game. The game will be played at Dell Diamond, home of the Texas Rangers Triple A team, in Round Rock, on Saturday, June 15, 2013. Bowman is one of 20 players selected to represent the North team, in a North vs. South game for the State of Texas.

"When Coach Henry called to tell me, I was kind of shocked, but excited at the same time," said Bowman. "Honestly, I think it is a great compliment to my teammates and coaches and I will to represent Gilmer baseball and Gilmer ISD in a positive way. This will be a fun way to end my high school career, then start getting ready to play baseball at ETBU."

Bowman, the lead-off hitter for Gilmer, was a four year letterman for the Buckeyes and a three year starter. The Buckeyes were defeated this past weekend in the third round of the state playoffs, after finishing the regular season as the District Champions in 16-3A.

"This is a huge honor for Dylan and for the Buckeye program," said Coach Lonnie Henry. "Dylan had a great four year career and it was exciting to see the other coaches across the state recognize his hard work on and off the field. I look forward to going down with my family to watch him and be there when his high school career comes to an end."

Bowman finished his senior year with a .364 batting average, .453 on base percentage, 40 hits, 36 runs and 15 stolen bases, while also having a 95% fielding percentage from 2nd base.
