The Falcon Jeweler

Odessa -- Coming off of only 3 hits in 15 at-bats, UTPB Falcons' senior infielder, Skyler Palermo knew it was time for a change. He would go on to bat .615 and earn Lone Star Conference "Hitter of the Week", just five days later.

The change Palermo made was not to his mechanics, but rather his look. After suggestions from his teammates, the Arizona native began wearing seven chains around his neck, and ever since, he has been on fire.
