SAN ANTONIO (Aug. 5, 2020) – The Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) baseball Assistant Coach Jeremy Flores has been named to the Texas A&M University-Kingsville (TAMUK) All-Decade team. Flores served as a relief pitcher for the Javelinas from 2009-2013 and cemented himself as the program's all-time saves leader.
Flores commented on the achievement, "I am extremely honored to be named to the All-Decade team. My time in Kingsville is something that I will cherish forever. The memories my teammates and I were able to create will last a lifetime. I was fortunate enough to play for Coach Gonzalez and share the field with some great ball players. The lessons I learned from TAMUK have helped me become the coach I am today and for that I will be forever grateful."
Flores was named to the First Team All-LSC and Second Team All-South Central Region by the NCBWA in 2013 and earned an honorable mention in 2012. He picked up seven saves in 18 appearances in 2011 and struck out 39 batters. Flores tallied three saves in 2012 and 21 strikeouts and closed his career with 14 saves and 32 strikeouts in 2013.
He set the program record for single-season saves in 2013 with 17. His 3.70 career ERA is currently the fourth-lowest among qualified pitchers at TAMUK, and his 81 appearances are the second-most by any Javelina and the most by any pitcher in the decade.
Flores has served as the assistant coach for the Saints for five seasons starting in 2014 and was head coach during the 2017 season. The Saints tallied their highest winning percentage during the 2019 season with a 31-24 record.
