The “What Might Have Been” feature series is Big Country Preps’ effort to celebrate area athletes who have seen their seasons affected by the Covid-19 outbreak. The series will continue through June 15 or until the UIL rules that high school athletics statewide may resume.
This was not how Derek Dallas and Brady Keane saw their first season with the Winters baseball team going.
Last year, Dallas was an assistant in Snyder before becoming the head baseball coach for the Blizzards this year. Keane, his assistant, was a sportswriter with the Denton Record-Chronicle covering high school athletics.
The duo spent this season working on reinvigorating the Blizzards baseball team and changing the mentality of the program.
To say that they were successful after nine games, before the UIL shut down games due to the Coronavirus, would be a gross understatement.
