“It didn’t feel like going from a four-year school to a two-year school when I came to Weatherford,” Lockwood said. “Junior college baseball is at a very high level here. We get spoiled here.
“This is really a strong conference. If you can make a name for yourself in this conference you can succeed anywhere.”
If the draft doesn’t work out for him this June, Lockwood will move on to a larger school.
“There are a couple of schools interested in me. I just have to see what happens. But I’m optimistic,” he said.
“I feel like being here, and facing the competition we see regularly, has made me a better player, and wherever I go I can help them out a lot. There are no days off in this conference. You’re always facing good teams and good players.”
In the meantime, Lockwood is just glad to be home.
