Symonds transfers to OBU
Nyko Symonds, who was Oklahoma’s holder last season, has transferred to Oklahoma Baptist University to be part of a new football program that begins in 2013.
Punter Tress Way has doubled his duties this spring, holding for kicker Michael Hunnicutt on field goals and extra points.
Symonds, who played at Southmoore, will join Chris Jensen, his former high school coach who was recently named OBU’s coach for the start-up program.
“With Coach Jensen going to OBU and the type of offense he will be running I just feel that is where God wanted me to go,” Symonds said in a press release. “I have so much respect for Coach Jensen. I want to be part of something special at OBU leading this program from the very beginning.”
One reason Symonds is transferring is he can play wide receiver, his high school position.
“I loved my time at OU and I accomplished some personal goals,” Symonds said. “It is truly hard to leave OU. I will miss my teammates as well as the program and its tradition, but I am ready to start a new tradition at OBU. I know I can play wide receiver at a high level and I am ready to show that in this new exciting program.”
