Russellville High School senior Barrett Croslin signed a letter of intent last week to play baseball at Volunteer State Community College in Gallatin, Tenn.

Croslin, who has starred for the past four years at RHS as a football, basketball and baseball player, will be continuing his athletic career in the sport where he first achieved his most prestigious accomplishment. Croslin was a member of the Logan County Little League team that won the state and regional tournaments and went on to be a part of the Little League World Series.

“Definitely going to the Little League World Series was the biggest thrill I’ve had yet,” Croslin said. “It was a very good experience.”

Since playing baseball for the Panthers, Croslin said his best memory was when coach Greg Shelton was hired to head the team.

“When coach Shelton got here, I was so excited,” Croslin said. “I knew he was going to be able to help me get better - and he has.”

Croslin said he has enjoyed playing basketball and football at Russellville, but hopes to be able to play baseball professionally after spending two years at Vol State.
