Even our team name illustrates what we are all about – A+. Why A+ Drillers? Allen Cougot, founder of A+ Academy, coached the Texas Drillers as his son participated through tournament ball many years ago. The Texas Drillers won many tournaments including the following National – World Series events:
10u Pony World Series – Dallas Texas – Teams from across the nation incluing Puerto Rico, California, Florida, etc. (Swept event – never losing a game)
11U Dizzy Dean World Series (Swept event – never losing a game)
12u Triple Crown World Series (Swept the event – never losing a game)
13u USSSA Major World Series, 72 teams (Won event losing just one game)
4 Consecutive World Series events with just one lost!!!!!!!
While the old Texas Drillers were participating with their respected HS teams, Allen Cougot Started A+ Academy bringing back the Driller name but this time changing to “A+ Drillers”. Allen’s invlovement with the exciting times of college recruiting of all the old Texas Drillers reinforced to Allen that while all were superior ball players with a great baseball resume, the A+ in the classroom proved so very important.
So why A+? A+ Drillers is striving towards A+ in the classroom and on-off the field!
A+ continues to win but now with a different mind set – Raise fine young men and see how far they go in life.
