(San Antonio) – Navarro High School graduate John Bormann, now a college baseball standout at the University of Texas – San Antonio, was selected by the Los Angeles Angels in the 19th round of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft on Saturday.  

The selection capped a successful junior year on the diamond and in the classroom for Bormann, the Roadrunners’ starting catcher.

The former Navarro Panther was named to the Conference USA All-Tournament team after helping UTSA to a runner-up finish in the league’s post-season championship tournament.  

UTSA fell to Rice 11-5 in the championship round, finishing the season with a 35-26 record, and Bormann connected for three hits in the championship game.  

Behind the plate, Bormann was a stalwart defensively, leading C-USA with 13 pickoffs and throwing out 24 base stealers in 2014.  

With the bat in his hands, Bormann hit .288 with four home runs and 24 RBIs, finished second on the team with 12 doubles, and posted a .404 slugging percentage.  

Bormann was one of ten student-athletes in C-USA named to the league’s All-Academic Team earlier this spring.  

He carries a 3.76 GPA as a business major, and has been on both the Dean’s List and the President’s List every semester since enrolling at UTSA.  

Bormann also earned a C-USA Commissioner’s Academic Medal and was a member of the league’s Commissioner’s Honor Roll.
