Joseph Bernal, a senior at Mary Carroll High School in Corpus Christi, loves to play golf.


"I chose the University of Houston-Victoria because I want to help launch the new golf program," Bernal said. "I want to be a part of the birth of this program and achieve great things with the team."


Aside from golf, he is an avid fisherman and holds eight state records in powerlifting.


Bernal plans to major in education.
