Bass to Baseball, Hargrave’s Dorcz living the dream
Originally Appeared on Vype
Matthew Dorcz is the starting third baseman for the Hargrave Falcons baseball team and also happens to be one of the best bass fisherman in southeast Texas.
This fishing season, Dorcz (pronounced Dor-See) has competed in five Texas High School Bass Association (THSBA) Tournaments and has three Top-11 finishes. Dorcz was the top angler at the THSBA Lake Conroe tournament March 16 with a total catch of five bass for 17.9 pounds.
"I've been competing since I was seven (years old)," said Dorcz. "My dad would take me to tournaments at Lake Houston and up to Lake Rayburn, we would compete against the field. He's taught me everything there is to know about fishing."
Finishing third overall in the THSBA, "Houston Division" Dorcz prefers to fish solo without an accompanying teammate to help with the catch.
Fellow Hargrave classmates Brandon White and Rustin Mueller won the overall division title this year with an accumulative score of 2,397 over five tournaments. Second place went to Tomball's Trey Dwyer and Ben Morton.
"I like to fish alone because it gives me the opportunity to pick out my spots on the lake," said Dorcz.
