Midwest City duo will remain teammates at Tulsa
By Justin Harper
John Flanders was impressed with how Tulsa football has begun to build a tradition as a perennial bowl team. Maurice White was impressed with how Tulsa University has begun building … all over campus.
Flanders, a defensive back, and White, a defensive end, helped Midwest City return to prominence over their careers together as Bombers, concluding with a 12-1 senior season. Wednesday, the pair signed on as college teammates, both accepting scholarships to play for the Golden Hurricane.
“It’s close to family and I like where that program is going,” said Flanders, a state champion sprinter who had four interceptions in his senior season.
White was impressed with all that TU football entails to be sure, but the first thing he mentions when talking about starting his college days has nothing to do with the gridiron.
“When I went up there, you could see all the new buildings they’re putting up and the work they’re putting in to make it a great school, and I liked that,” said the 6-7, 245-pounder. “Just all over campus, there was construction going on everywhere.”
