Royal High School senior Benjamin Ibarra was awarded a full scholarship for baseball at Prairie View A&M University. Proud parents Benny and Beverly Ybarra joined Benjamin on 11/13/2019 as he accepted his scholarship. His grandparents are Benito Ybarra, Sr. of Sealy, Texas; Erwin and Emma Kiesewetter of Bellville TX; and deceased grandparents Joe and Elida Gonzales.
Benjamin started playing baseball at the age of 4 and his parents knew right away that he would excel at it. He has played in several World Series Tournaments in Flower Mound, Texas; Orlando, Florida; Omaha, Nebraska; Cooperstown, New York; Phoenix, Arizona; and Birmingham, Alabama. He was selected twice by Texas High School Baseball Magazine as one of the Top 100 Prospects in the 4A category and received the All-District Honorable Mention.
Benjamin does the filming for all the football Varsity and Junior Varsity games and participated in the school food drive. His interests are listening to music and spending time with family.
Congratulations and best wishes to Benjamin as he soars into his new journey!
