VYPE: Davin, what makes being a student-athlete at El Reno HS special for you?

from my coaches and people in the town. It really influences our team and hypes us up.

VYPE: Tell me about your teammates. What do you love about this group of guys?
Shamblin: The thing I love about my teammates the most is how we can joke around outside of baseball, then go into practice or a game and are completely locked back in and being there for each other. They all work so hard to put us in a good spot for the season, and it’s paying off.

VYPE: Are you involved in any clubs or groups at school?
Shamblin: I am very involved in FCA. Seeing kids being led to Christ by other students is huge.

be Kristy Ewers. She’s amazing and always willing to help me with no matter what it is. She always makes time for me when I need it.

VYPE: What aspect of your game have you improved for this season?
Shamblin: I’ve worked to improve my speed and my fielding the most. Those are two vital factors in my game. An extra 90 feet can determine the ball game, so I try to stay consistent in training those aspects.

game is mind blowing. He’s still young too and has plenty more years.
