3 WCPR Tennis Players to Play NCAA Tennis


Robbie McCammon, United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) instructor with Williamson County Parks and Recreation, is celebrating three of his students who will soon be playing tennis at the collegiate level. Walker Anderson of Battle Ground Academy (BGA), Natalyn Jones of Ravenwood High School and David Skrabut, a homeschooled student, have all signed to play NCAA tennis.

Walker Anderson became a student of McCammon’s at age 14. Anderson has played on the BGA Wildcat varsity tennis team since his freshmen year, when he was a state doubles finalist. Anderson also excels in the classroom where he holds a GPA of 4.47. He will attend Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York where he will join the men’s tennis team.

Natalyn Jones of Brentwood started learning from McCammon at age 10. She played tennis at Woodland Middle School and is now a senior at Ravenwood High School where she is a standout player. She will attend Belmont University in the Fall. McCammon says, “Natalyn is an outstanding player with high goals both on and off the court. Her positive attitude will serve her well as a Belmont Bruin.”

Franklin resident David Skrabut is ranked in the top 10 in the state of Tennessee and is No. 85 in the Southern Section of the USTA. McCammon has been coaching Skrabut for nine years. Skrabut was recruited by Lipscomb University and will join the Bisons tennis program in September.

McCammon praises all three recruits as “extremely intelligent young adults with very strong work ethics. They are on the court five days a week, practicing and playing tournaments. Over the years, it has been a pleasure to work with them and they truly make my job very fulfilling.”

Robbie McCammon is a native of Brentwood and has worked for WCPR for over twelve years. McCammon played college tennis at Western Kentucky University and was formerly ranked #1 in Men’s Open Singles and Doubles in the State of Tennessee. As a USPTA member, he enjoys working with all levels of juniors, and he coaches more than 10 Nalta teams. Currently, he serves as the head coach for the State Champion Ravenwood Raptor boys and girls tennis teams and was awarded High School Coach of the year in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
