BURNET — Throughout the Burnet High School baseball season, anytime the Bulldogs needed a pitcher to deliver, they turned to senior Hunter Reagor.

That mindset and improving speed is what landed him a spot on the University of Houston at Victoria baseball team, which he made official by signing his letter of intent May 26.

“I really felt like that was the place for me,” he said. “I had some friends there.”

Burnet head coach Todd Doucet said that although Reagor, who stands 6 feet 2 inches, is an outstanding pitcher, the athlete is an even better person.

“He did a great job,” he said. “He won some games for us. He has a lot of upside.”

When Reagor wasn’t pitching, he was playing third base, so he had a chance to talk to the other team’s third-base coach, who is usually the opponent’s head coach.

Doucet said those head coaches often told him how much they enjoyed conversing with the Bulldog.

“Great people get to do great things,” he said. “It’s exciting. Hunter has a lot of upside.”

The coach said Reagor’s fastball is getting closer to 90 mph. He also throws a curve, slider and change-up.

The son of Zachary and Codi Reagor said he is undecided on a major. But the plan is to play as a true freshman in 2017.
