Garrett Jr. feels pretty confident in himself after what he accomplished last Friday in Albuquerque, N.M.

With his school-record throw of 65 feet, 9 1/2 inches, the UTSA senior registered a stunning upset of 6-6, 290-pound Bozidar Antunovic from UT Arlington.
Antunovic threw 65-8 1/4, settling for second.
