Our thoughts and prayers are with Wayman and his family.

We played against each other every year in high school. We knew each other before we even started playing together for the Oklahoma Rams, but that's really the first time we ever developed any type of relationship.

I remember as 17-year-olds, after our junior years, we got to the championship game of the nationals and played against New York City. People were just shaking their heads — “Oklahoma?”

Wayman always had a big smile on his face. A big win at Enid my senior year, we upset them at our place. There was a great picture they took of me and Wayman after the game. Even after losing that game, Wayman had a big smile on his face. It just seems like he was always having a good time.
