PALESTINE — The Oakwood Panthers football season isn’t over, and already Damiyne Durham has basketball on his mind.

Early on Monday morning, the all-around multi-sport athlete signed a commitment letter with the intent to attend Baylor University in Waco to play basketball.

This football season, Durham has helped lead the Oakwood Panthers to where the team is today, headed for the second round of the high school playoffs.

With a six-man squad, the entire Oakwood team is important, and Durham is included in that.

For the first few games, Durham’s name wasn’t mentioned often, but toward the middle of the season, his name started showing up more and the Panthers began their six-game winning streak.
