The Runners Rising Project is happy to have Jonathan as our very first official Runners Rising Athlete! Jonathan is a San Antonio native and attended O’Connor High School in Helotes. He choose to stay home and attend UTSA while majoring in Kinesiology. He batted .295 in 2021 with 24 RBIs as a member of the UTSA baseball team and also played in the Texas Collegiate League as a member of the Victoria Generals. Excelling both on and off the field, Jonathan has been named to the Conference USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll in each of his four years at UTSA (2017-2021).
Jonathan Tapia jumped on Twitter this week to answered a few questions from our Runners Rising community.
The Runners Rising project is proud to provide the opportunity to ask student athletes questions about themselves and their time at UTSA.
