Community R-6 senior Gavin Allen will be taking his strikeout stuff to the Woods.

In a letter of intent ceremony on Thursday at Community R-6 High School in Laddonia, Allen made it official that he will be pitching for NAIA William Woods University in Fulton. The Owls play in the American Midwest Conference and are coming off a 30-18 season — their first 30-win season since 2018.

Through two spring seasons and one fall season, Allen has struck out 163 batters in 95 2/3 innings with one more season coming up in the spring. At the plate, he owns a .377 batting average and has 40 career hits, with four of them going as home runs.

Allen credits the people around him, including his coaches, for helping him earn the opportunity to play college baseball. He is looking forward to the new friends he will make at William Woods.

“I am very excited to meet my teammates and continue to get better and hopefully in the future help our team win,” Allen said. “I would like to thank my family friends and all my coaches. I wouldn’t have had the chance to play college ball without them.”

“Gavin has been a great asset to the R6 baseball program and we are excited to see his future play out,” head coach Joel Krato said.
