Blinn Men’s Basketball Player Davion Coleman Signs With Texas State University
Blinn College freshman guard Davion Coleman (Houston) recently signed a letter of intent to continue his academic and playing career at Texas State University.
“Davion turned out to be a dynamic scorer and he has been blessed with a lot of athletic talent,” head coach Scott Schumacher said. “His work ethic is second to none and he puts a lot of time and effort into his craft. I think that showed this year on the floor this season. I applaud him for reaching his goals and getting to do what he wants to do, which is be a Division I-level player, and Texas State is getting someone special.”
Coleman earned first team all-region and all-conference honors this season after leading the Buccaneers and finishing second in the region with 21 points per game. He recorded a season-high 39 points against Jacksonville College on Feb. 3. In addition, Coleman totaled 3.7 rebounds per game.
“It took a lot of hard work and I am just blessed and excited to be moving on, which was the ultimate goal,” Coleman said. “Playing at Blinn taught me everything about hard work, staying focused, and being disciplined every day. I am really excited for the competition at the next level.”
Blinn finished the season with an 11-11 overall record and 8-10 conference record. The Buccaneers defeated Coastal Bend College, 75-66, in the first round of the Region XIV tournament before their season concluded in quarterfinals.
Blinn has competed in intercollegiate athletics since 1903 and captured 42 NJCAA national championships since 1987.
