Jett Williams, From Rockwall- Heath High School, Chosen By Mets In First Round


Jett Williams, a high school star from the DFW metroplex, has been picked in the first round of the MLB draft.

Williams, from Rockwall’s Heath High School was chosen by the Mets with the 14th pick.

He is one of the smallest players in this year’s draft as he is a 5-foot, 8-inch shortstop. However, he is one of the greatest hitters and has strived to become the best despite his height.

Williams partied at a draft celebration in North Texas.

“My family and friends are here. It’s a pretty awesome moment just to have everyone here and kind of just enjoy it with them after this. I’m so excited and can’t wait to get to New York…” Williams exclaimed.

Two other high school players from North Texas were chosen in first round picks.

One of those individuals, Bobby Witt Jr., of Colleyville Heritage, is already a part of the MLB, playing shortstop and third base for the Kansas City Royals.
