UT-Pan AM head baseball coach Willie Gawlik announced on Monday that Bonham Hough, from Waxahachie, has signed a National Letter of Intent and will join the Broncs during the 2007-08 academic campaign.

"Bonham is coming from a good junior college program at Weatherford," said Gawlik. "He brings speed, competitiveness, offense, and the will to win to the Broncs.

“He covers a lot of ground in the outfield, has hit anywhere from one-to-five in the line-p, and can play all three outfield positions. We are excited about Bonham coming to our program."

As a freshman at Weatherford Junior College, Hough finished the season with a .295 conference batting average where he drove in 20 runs to go along with 15 stolen bases, two home runs and a .380 on-base percentage.

A standout at Waxahachie High School, the newly-inked Bronc finished with a .385 batting average en route to earning first team all-district honors and Newcomer of the Year laurels during his junior campaign. In his final season, Hough led the North Texas Area in stolen bases with 30 of 31 attempts and concluded his stellar career at Waxahachie with eight home runs.

Off the diamond, Hough was a standout in the classroom where he graduated with a 3.6 grade point average.

The newly-signed Bronc is preparing for his second summer season with the Newton Rebels baseball club in Kansas Summer Wood-Bat League.

Hough is the fourth player to be added to the Broncs roster for the upcoming 2007-08 season during the summer months.
