Brown commits to Louisiana-MonroeShawnee senior Brayle Brown just couldn't pass up an offer to play Division I football. The Wolves' star already had an offer from Louisiana-Monroe from this summer. He visited the campus this weekend and committed to the program Sunday, confirmed Brown on his Facebook page. Brown began the year at quarterback, but a labrum injury has forced him to play wide receiver for most of the season. He's been recruited at ULM as a quarterback, however, and said he shouldn't have any problems recovering and will return to QB. At 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, Brown entered the year as one of several highly touted quarterbacks in the state.
Panthers survive Moore rallyDespite some defensive hiccups throughout the night, Putnam City North came up big when it had to, stopping a Moore two-point conversion with under five minutes to play, then holding the Lions on the final drive inside of two minutes in a 42-40 PC North win. The victory keeps hope alive for the Panthers to get in the playoffs with a win over Choctaw and a little help. "The offense really played well, except for going three-and-out on the last three drives,” PC North coach Bob Wilson said. PC North's Dre Holman rushed for 170 yards on 23 carries to add to the strong passing connection between quarterback Jace James and receiver Covin Conrady. "Dre is getting back in playing shape, and he's getting used to being knocked around a little bit,” Wilson said of Holman, who missed half the season with injuries. "Jace threw the ball really well, and Covin had another big game. "Moore has gotten a lot better. They're one of the best 0-9 teams I've seen in a while. They play hard, and that's a great credit to coach Scott Myers and his players.”
CCS FAVORED HEADING INTO PLAYOFFSCommunity Christian has won 21 consecutive games and is the No. 1 seed heading into the Oklahoma Christian Schools Athletic Association playoffs, which begin Friday night. However, coach Josh Norman said he is not worried about his team, the defending OCSAA champions, being overconfident. "This is a different team from last year,” he said. "It's a new attitude, and these kids want to experience that same feeling.” Quarterback Scott Seymour connected with wide receiver Beau Potter three times for 176 yards and three touchdowns in Friday's win over Windsor Hills. CCS will host Rejoice Christian in one semifinal, while Windsor Hills will play Southwest Christian in the other. By Robert Przybylo and Scott Wright
