Hudson, Texas Baseball Standout Will Pitch for Angelina College
Hudson High School pitcher Colby Turner will be going from maroon and white to orange and blue in 2023-2024. The Hornet senior recently signed on to continue his baseball at Angelina College in Lufkin, Texas.
Glen Kimble, head baseball coach at Hudson, calls the lefty “a true competitor”. As a junior in 2022, he led the Hornet pitching staff in innings pitched (74.2) and strikeouts (119) while posting a 1.97 ERA. That following a stellar sophomore season that saw Turner strike out 27 hitters in 18 innings pitched to finish with a 1.17 ERA.
While his numbers certainly speak for themselves, it was his overall will to win that caught the eye of Angelina College head baseball head coach Jeff Livin, and on Tuesday, Turner signed his letter of intent to join the Roadrunners in the fall of 2023.
“He’s a lefty, which is always a plus,” Livin said on Tuesday. “He throws strikes, he has great stuff and he competes. He’s physical with a lot of projectability – all the things we’re looking for in a player. He’s coming from a great program.
“Obviously, we think he has a chance to compete for a spot in our starting rotation at some point.”
Turner said his decision to become a Roadrunner??
“I’m a homebody, and I like the idea of playing near home for at least another couple of years,” Turner said. “I’m familiar with the AC program and Coach Livin, and I’m looking forward to being part of it.”
Turner plans to major in Business, and said his goal is to continue his academic and athletic careers at a university after his time at Angelina College.
