Altus’ Tito Jones – Western Oklahoma State College Student-Athlete Spotlight

Tito Jones started playing baseball at a very young age. He played football and basketball growing up, but it was baseball that he excelled at and eventually landed him at Western Oklahoma State College after playing for Altus High School. Today, Jones and his teammates are working hard to win a national title. 

“Winning a national title is the main expectation and our season is going great. We are second in the nation and we know we have a chance to bring home a title back to Western Oklahoma State College,” said Jones. “I love how we always compete and never give up on each other and always tell each other what we need to hear to learn and adjust in baseball.”

Western Oklahoma State College was the perfect fit for Jones coming out of high school. Jones has always taken his academic serious, which is a big reason he wanted to attend school at Western State. 

“Academics is a huge important thing to me. Especially because I’d love to play at D1 school after my last year at WOSC,” said Jones. “I plan to go to a D1 or get drafted out of WOSC and continue my baseball career.”

“WOSC is the right place for me because they teach us more than just baseball. They teach us how to become man and learn more about life and to never give up on any kind of situation a player is dealing with.”

The outfielder is certainly on the right path to accomplish his goals on and off the diamond. His mother is one reason Jones has stayed so grounded.

“My mother has been a huge influence in my life. She has always been there for me and played both parts in my life. I’m very thankful to have a strong and independent woman like her in my life,” said Jones. 

Away from the baseball diamond and classroom, you can usually find Jones hanging with his friends and family or at the cages hitting balls for hours on end. 

Western Oklahoma State College is coached by Kurt Russell with assistant coaches Bryant Mistler, Matt Page and pitching coach Brett Stanton.
