East Texas welcomes back one of their own with the Texarkana, Texas native. Preston joins Louisiana-Lafayette teammate Tyler Girouard in the Pump Jacks infield. The slick-fielding shortstop/third baseman did not commit an error in his first season with the Rajin’ Cajuns. Preston was the leading utility player appearing in 33 games for head coach Tony Robichauk.
As a player as Texas High School, Preston hit .422 with 30 RBI in his senior season, while leading the Tigers to a 25-9 record.
