Billy Brown didn't go into Shawnee's game against Ponca City thinking about getting his 150th head coaching victory.

“We just needed a win, period,” Brown said of the Wolves' 28-20 triumph. “It was a good win for us.

Brown's longtime assistant, Wayne Jackson, reminded him after the game that he had reached the 150 mark. The Wolves trailed 14-0, then 17-14 before pulling ahead for good behind sophomore quarterback John Jacobs, who accounted for more than 400 total yards.

“Once you think about it, it's cool to do it,” Brown said of his 150 wins spread over 17 years at Shawnee and Wewoka. “You think about some of the other guys who have done it and it's humbling.”

Brown got No. 150 on the same night Seminole's Mike Snyder got No. 300. Brown played and coached against Snyder-coached teams at Wewoka.

“He beat me a few times, both as a player and a coach,” Brown said with a laugh. “I know I contributed to his win total.”

LOOMIS GETS 30

Deer Creek senior linebacker Austin Loomis had a monster game in the Antlers' 45-14 win over Edmond Memorial on Thursday night.

Loomis had 30 tackles — 18 solo and a sack included.

Through three games, Loomis has 54 tackles.

Loomis spent Saturday on a visit to Tulsa after visiting Indiana earlier this month. Later this month, he has a visit scheduled for New Mexico.
