After being selected to the All-Centex team and the All- Brazos Valley team his senior year at Lexington High School, he signed with Frank Phillips College in Borger. Reagan was District 26- AA MVP and chosen to play in the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association all star game selection. Reagan was selected second team all-state and was ninth in Texas in homeruns during his senior year. He also led the state in RBI’s his senior year at Lexington. He pitched a little for the Eagles going 6-1 with most of the wins being critical to the team success in the playoffs.

In college ball, during his freshman year, he was selected first team all-conference as an infielder. He was the top freshman hitter in the conference and a Texas –New Mexico Junior College All-Star selection and played in the game at Baylor University in October. Reagan was 23rd in the nation among Junior College players in individual batting with a .455 average. Janda also parked 10 homeruns and plated 53 RBI’s for the Plainsmen.

He is looking forward to his sophomore year at FPC, where he plans to continue to play throughout his college career. The longer he plays, the better chance Reagan has to become the first LHS baseball player ever drafted by the major leagues.
