photo Had surgery on his throwing shoulder in the summer of 2007 ... Missed some workouts and was slowed a bit by that when he returned to action in the fall, but made strides physically, and coaches liked what they saw ... Has a chance to be a good offensive player, and will add depth to the catching position.

As a senior, hit .400 with six homers and 40 runs batted in, including one game where he went 5-for-6 with two homers, two doubles and eight RBIs ... Hit a walk-off homer in the eighth inning versus Klein Oak ... Batted .370 with three homers and 25 RBIs as a junior as his team won a sixth-straight district title ... Also pitched as a junior, going 2-1 with a 1.52 ERA, and tossed a no-hitter in the championship game of the Round Rock tournament versus Pflugerville.

Personal: James David Rhoads ... Born 10/23/88 in Tomball, TX ... Son of James Rhoads ... Went to the same high school as current teammate Ty Hohman ... Enrolled in university studies.
