Wearing number 24 for the College of Eastern Utah baseball team is Garrett Jon Argyle. The son of David and Lisa, Argyle was born on February 8, 1988. He grew up in Vista, Calif., with three brothers and one sister.
As a kid, Argyle enjoyed participating in baseball and loved to play on the beach. When he moved to Utah in 1996 he started snowboarding and hasn’t quit since. Argyle graduated from Timpanogas High School in 2006. In high school he played football, baseball and liked to go to school dances. He also liked to make movies with his friends and hang out.
Argyle enjoys family vacations. His favorite so far has been a family vacation to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. His favorite quote is, “You’re killing me smalls.” His favorite vegetable is broccoli and his favorite fruit is bananas. Argyle speaks Spanish fluently. He used to sing in choirs, but hates singing solos.
If he could go anywhere in the world he would go to “Alaska. Because I’d want to go see all the different wildlife out there on land and in the ocean. And snowboarding would be awesome.”
This year is Argyle’s first year at CEU. Before coming to here, he attended college in Ridgecrest, Calif., and played baseball there. He spent his next two years serving an LDS mission in the Dominican Republic. He says he enjoys CEU because of how supportive all the teachers are towards helping student athletes.
After college he wants to open his own gym and daddy day care center. He loves children and thinks it would be very fun to help make a difference in their lives.
