Mike Alzamora Kilgore
Article by Mike Alzamora;
The last three seasons of Kilgore Bulldog baseball have been a rise towards the mountain-top of Class 4A.
Regional quarterfinalists in 2017, regional finalists last season in coach Eugene Lafitte’s first year, and now, headed to state for the first time since 1972.
Tuesday morning, the Kilgore community came out to send them off to Austin.
It was a festive atmosphere at Driller Park as 18 players on the roster believe this journey started when they began playing tee-ball together.
Their accomplishments as a group throughout their childhood are quite something.
As eleven-and twelve-year-olds, they won the back-to-back district, and state championships, advancing to the Dixie Youth League World Series in 2012.
That helped form what is now a brotherhood. They say is what’s propelled to a 32-7 campaign, two wins away from the program’s first-ever state championship.
“We knew that if we stayed together through high school, then we knew we were gonna do big things. And that’s what we’re doing. And it helps us better because everybody is close. We’re all brothers. I mean, we sit in here and we talk. We play ping pong with each other. Being close on the baseball team just makes it that much better,” said Kilgore senior shortstop Gus Witt.
“When it comes down to it, brothers have each other back. One thru nine and everybody on the bench, they all have each other’s back, when they’re on that field,” said Lafitte.
That was the case last year when outfielder Deuce Ervin had to miss the entire season due to a torn ACL he suffered playing football.
