Midland Legacy celebrates two student-athlete college signings, one commitment

Three student-athletes from Midland Legacy High School have recently announced which college programs will get to exhibit their talents at the next level.

Defensive back Canyon Moses on Wednesdsay signed up to join the University of Arizona football program next year while softball player Leann Torres signed on to play for Western Texas College. In addition, junior quarterback Marcos Davila committed to Texas Christian University, according to  CBS7’s Jake Brandenburg, who continues to provide some of West Texas’ best sports coverage.

In an interview, Torres credited her parents for helping her achieve the opportunity to play at the college level.

“Right now, I feel like I’m on top of the world,” she said.

Midland Reporter-Telegram reporter Christopher Hadorn reports that Western Texas College took interest in Torres after seeing her “defensive skills at both shortstop and center field during a tryout.”

Moses, a three-star defensive back, credited his coaches at Midland Legacy for “teaching me how to be a man.”

“That’s what I’m probably going to take most, was the life goals, the life lessons,” Moses stated to Brandenburg.

During his junior and senior years, Moses contributed more than 126 tackles, five tackles for a loss, 14 pass breakups, two forced fumbles for Midland Legacy.

Davila, a 1st Team All-District quarterback who amassed 3,051 yards and 36 TDs last season, announced his commitment to TCU on Twitter. The 6-3, 215-pound standout will join a TCU program that is currently third in the nation in the AP College Football’s Top 25 rankings with a 12-1 overall record.
