William Robles, a West Orange-Stark baseball player, has received a scholarship and signed with Ranger College to play baseball.
WOS Head Baseball Coach, Sergio Espinal states, “this is a very competitive Division I Junior College Baseball Program in Texas, I am very proud and excited for William. He has the ability to do well and play at the next level.”
In 2011, Community College Week reported that Ranger College was the fifth fastest-growing two-year college in the nation. The main campus is located in Ranger, Texas, with bustling satellite campuses in Brown County and Erath County. Ranger College is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
One of the oldest continuously operating public two-year colleges in the state of Texas, Ranger opened its doors in August 1925. Today the campus in Ranger serves several counties in north-central Texas and awards the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of Applied Science degrees. The college operates several successful workforce programs, such as machining, welding, EMT, and nursing.
Robles plans to earn an Associate’s degree in General Studies and hopes to have the opportunity to continue his baseball career at a four-year program while obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Business Analysis. William said, “I had no idea this could happen to me. I am so grateful to WOS Baseball and Coach Espinal. I will be the first generation in my family to go to college on a scholarship. I can’t express how much this means.”
