This name is probably not familiar to you, but maybe someday it will be. Francis Larson, a catcher out of UCI, was the 22nd round pick of the Angels. He is an old friend of mine that I went to school with. We met in 4th grade when he first entered my elementary school (moved from somewhere else).
I casually followed his college career and while he put up good numbers, I wasn't aware that he was a legitimate major league prospect. When I found out he was drafted, I was amazed. When I found out he was drafted by the Angels, I was ecstatic.
Anyways, I just wanted to say that he is a REALLY smart and likable guy. He was always popular and athletic but was classy and genuine to everyone he met. He took all the AP classes and whatnot and had really good grades all the time. With all the catching depth ahead of him in the organization, it remains to be seen if he will ever be an Angel at the major league level but one thing is for sure, they just added a quality human being to the organization.
I'm really excited for him and wish him the best and I hope sometime in the future, you all will become a fan of his.
