Bears guard and former Texas A&M-Kingsville standout Roberto Garza will be inducted into the Lone Star Conference Hall of Honor this fall.
Garza has played in the NFL for the past 10 years, the last six with the Bears. He was a two-time Associated Press Little All-America honoree and a first-team All-America selection by the American Football Coaches Association during his collegiate career.
Garza also won the NCAA Division II national title in the shot put in 2000 and finished third in 1999. He also won the conference title in the discus in 1999.
