ROBERTSDALE, Alabama — By all accounts, Jace Waters had a bright future ahead of him.

An honor student and a standout pitcher on the Robertsdale High School baseball team, he received both academic and athletic scholarships to attend the University of West Alabama.

In what should have been a minor setback, he hurt his back just before the start of his senior season.

“He was prescribed physical therapy and Lortab,” said his mother, Julie Waters.

Despite that, he would go on to finish his senior season and was looking forward to playing college ball at UWA.
