In his junior year, he was voted Utility Player of the Year, and he earned All District MVP as a senior. Additionally, he was an Honorable Mention All-American, as well as First Team All Texas.
After playing baseball at Paschal, he was ranked as one of the top prospects nationally and signed with Texas Christian University. Guided by the principle of Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” Drew attained his lifelong dream of becoming a Division 1 athlete.
