ARLINGTON, Texas -- Each week, the UTA athletic department spotlights a Texas Trust Scholar-Athlete of the Week, which showcases the excellence in academic achievement of Maverick student-athletes.
This week, Texas Trust and the UTA athletic department honor junior men's golfer Camilo Avila. A native of Santa Cruz, Bolivia, Avila is the tallest member of the UTA golf team at 6'-5" and played in two tournaments for the Mavericks this fall. Avila has played in 10 tournaments during his career at UTA with a best individual finish of 14th place earlier this season at the Texas Intercollegiate.
