Walking off the baseball field for the final time this spring with his Atascocita (Texas) High School teammates, Chase Sowell wasn’t just putting an end to a season.

It was possibly the last game he will play on the diamond.

“We didn’t make the playoffs, but I had a good season,” he said. “It was just fun to play my last baseball season.

“I thought it was gonna be really hard because it was my first love. I played it all my life. But the more that I thought about it and… talked to my parents about it, I think I’ll be fine. I’ve been playing multiple sports and it’s hard to work out and focus on one sport. I think it’ll be a benefit for me just to be able to focus on one sport and work out on one sport.”

Despite having exceptional talent in baseball – he was recently named to the Houston Chronicle’s District 21-6A second team for outfield – Sowell will turn his focus to being a receiver for the Colorado Buffaloes.

This week, Sowell and his family will make the drive from Texas to Boulder. He is one of 19 newcomers set to join the Buffaloes, who begin summer workouts next week.
