Local Athletes Sign College Letters of Intent

Wichita Falls High School's Griffin Russell and City View High School's Danielle Wallum each signed letters of intent to play on college diamonds Wednesday.

Russell, a senior on the Old High baseball team, signed to pitch for Oklahoma State University in the spring of 2013.

He was 4-5 with a 3.27 ERA and 91 strikeouts in his junior year at WFHS, where he helped lead the Coyotes on an unlikely run to a one-game playoff for a playoff spot, where they fell to Lake Dallas.

He also pitched for the Burkburnett Blacksox travel team in the summer.

Wallum signed to catch and play first base for Mid-America Christian University, an NAIA school in Oklahoma City.

She helped lead City View to the Region I-2A Final against Callisburg her junior year.
