Christian Reyes will join the McLennan Baseball coaching staff following tonight's approval by the College's Board of Trustees. He will be working with the Highlander infielders and hitters.
Reyes comes to McLennan from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He joined the coaching staff in 2019 following his four-year playing career for the Trojans. During his two years as a grad assistant, Reyes coached the infielders that led the Sun Belt Conference in double plays. He also assisted with hitting, bunting, and base running, as well as camps, scouting reports, field work and operations. In May 2021, Reyes moved into the role of volunteer assistant coach. He continued his work with the fielders, leading them to a Top-50 ranking in NCAA double plays per game, and picked up the third base coaching duties. Reyes has also coached travel teams with the Texas Bulls and Sticks Baseball organizations.
As an infielder for the Trojans, Reyes was a four-year letter winner. He holds the UA-Little Rock record for most sacrifice bunts and ranks among the top five in career hits and top 10 in games played.
Reyes earned a bachelor's degree in world languages with a minor in sociology from in May 2019 and a master's degree in science with focus in sports management from UA-Little Rock in May 2021.
