To call the 2021 Wylie baseball team a senior-led squad would be a fairly significant understatement.
Featuring a 10-player senior class that will send eight to the college ranks next year, the 18th-ranked Bulldogs are blessed with a combination of talent, experience and chemistry that few teams statewide can boast.
But heading into a one-game area-round playoff against El Paso Andress at 4 p.m. Friday in Fort Stockton, coach Grant Martin’s seniors will see all of their history and hopes boiled down to a single game. Win, and they’ll get to add yet another chapter to a story already filled with unique experiences. Lose, and they’ll close the book on their time as teammates.
That reality isn’t lost on this talented group of Bulldogs, who aren’t remotely ready for this ride to be over yet.
