Texoma Ties: Cameron Allen

One play put a stamp on Cameron Allen's high school baseball career, a diving catch in the bottom of the fifth inning to end a bases-loaded scoring threat in the 2011 Class 4A State Championship Game.

"I just think of a play that helped our team bring back a state championship," he said. "I'm really proud that we were able to do that, and I'm glad that I could help with that."

It's been a little more than a year since Rider took home the state title and Allen claimed state tournament MVP honors.

Allen, like many members from that Raiders squad, moved on to play at the next level. Allen pitched in 23 games of the University of Arkansas-Little Rock last season, starting five games and throwing 49.1 innings, third most on the team. He finished the year 2-1 with a 5.47 ERA and 29 strikeouts.

He's back in Wichita Falls this summer, getting ready for next season. UALR's baseball season starts in mid February.
