Shelton Eppler has ended the football season as a champion.

The quarterback out of Navasota High School led Fundidores de Monterrey to the championship title in Liga de Fútbol Americano Profesional, a spring league in Mexico.

The Fundidores defeated Gallos Negros de Querétaro 18-14 in the Mexico Bowl.

It was his first time playing in the league that was founded in 2016.

Freshman defensive back Keith Steptoe made two solo tackles for the Texas A & M University white squad during the spring game against the maroon team. The former Rattler made a stop for a 3-yard rushing loss, and his other was after a 7-yard pass reception.

The Navasota graduate allowed four hits and one earned run in seven and one-third innings of his start. He struck out four. The right-hander had a 3.20 earned run average in nine appearances.

Nicholls State University pitcher Josh Mancuso finished with a 2-1 record and 4.74 ERA in 16 appearances. The left-hander is out of Anderson-Shiro.
