Duke von Schamann Commits to Tech
Edmond Santa Fe High School's Duke von Schamann, son of former University of Oklahoma and Miami Dolphins place-kicker Uwe von Schamann has signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Texas Tech University.

The younger von Schamann heads into his senior season at Santa Fe in the spring as a standout pitcher/third baseman for the Wolves. He is coached by Lonny Cobble.

"Looks like I'll become a Red Raider fan, at least during baseball season," said proud father Uwe von Schamann. "Duke has worked hard to become the player he is today and I think he made a great choice."

Joining the two von Schamann's at the signing event at Edmond Santa Fe High School were Duke's mother, Kristy Brown; grandmother, Karin von Schamann; and younger brother, Chase.
Uwe's "Other" Kids
Since 2001, Uwe von Schamann has served as director of development for the JD McCarty Center, Oklahoma's "center for excellence" in the care and treatment of children with special needs.

At the McCarty Center, children with developmental disabilities learn to move, eat, play and communicate better, with the goal of helping them reach their fullest potential in life, both as children and as adults.

Von Schamann's efforts have helped launch Camp ClapHans, a summer camp for children with special needs, named in honor on Uwe's ex-OU teammate, the late Sammy Jack Claphan.
