Gunter Duo Headed to Northern Colorado

GUNTER, Tex. - It was signing day for a couple of Gunter Tiger baseball standouts.

Tuesday morning first and third baseman Jake Oblas and pitcher Troy Watson signed their letters of intent to join University of Northern Colorado Bears' baseball team.

The two have left their mark while with the Tigers, leading them to the regional semifinals two years and the regional quarterfinals once during their first three years at Gunter.

Both are excited about playing at the next level together.

"Me and him, we played baseball since we were 10-years-old together," Watson said. "Now that we're going to the same college to pursue the dream, it feels great."

"It feels great to be able to support each other," Oblas said. "We've basically lived together for the past few years, so we're like brothers."
