Gavin Webster The Dual Sport Athlete

Gavin Webster is well known as a solid Division I football prospect and he is now receiving interest from mid-major baseball programs as well. Only one program has expressed interest in Webster playing both sports, which program is it?

Gavin Webster needs no introduction to college football recruiters in the region. After winning the 3A State Championship title game and accounting for 1,325 yards passing, 15 TDs; 636 yds, 16 TDs rushing, Webster has received his share of interest.

"Some schools like Tulsa, Mississippi State, N. Illinois, Tennessee and Alabama have come by our practices during spring," said Gavin. "Other programs like ULL, Houston and TCU have contacted coach or me by phone this spring."

Gavin has already set some of his football camp dates, but is still open to others if he can schedule them.

"I've scheduled Tulsa for June 6th & 7th, Tennessee for the 12th and Mississippi State on 19th or 20th," Webster stated. "I would like to schedule Alabama's camp and I'm attending one passing camp this summer. I'm also scheduled to attend the "Elite Eleven Football Camp" in Nevada later this summer as well.

Gavin Webster will not only have football on his mind this summer, but baseball as well. Webster is considered a solid mid-major baseball prospect, hitting .522, with 8 HR and 50 RBI as a junior. But only one program has contacted him about playing both sports in college, UL.

"Yes, ULL baseball recruiting coach called my coach to let him know they are interested in me possibly playing both sports," said Gavin. "Baseball coaches cannot have direct contact with juniors until next month, but they think I can play both sports at ULL."

Webster also plans to work baseball into his busy summer plans.

"I plan on attending a one day showcase hosted by the Tampa Devil Rays," Webster stated. "I also plan to play select ball this summer, but I'm going to miss some games to attend some of these football camps."

Would Gavin Webster consider play pro-baseball if he is drafted next year?

"Coach and I have talked about it," said Gavin." "It depends on what the scouts have to tell me and if I'm drafted next year. But yes, I would have to seriously consider the opportunity to play pro-ball if I'm drafted. I would be crazy not to at least listen to what the representatives of a professional franchise have to offer."
