Kennedy pitcher Sammy Lizarraga was dominant on the mound this season. Lizarraga was 7-1 with a 1.31 ERA. He had 59 strikeouts and only 12 walks this year, leading the Cougars to the state tournament. And Lizarraga has made a successful transition to football and will be the starting qb for Kennedy this season.
“Well I am excited about leading this team in football this season, but I would have to say baseball wins out,” he said of his favorite sport.
Lizarraga has been named the KCRG-TV9 Athlete of the Week.
