Young, Eagles soar at Big All-City...
By Robert Przybylo
I’ve said it before, and I’ll probably say it again. The All-Star games are some of the more enjoyable moments with the high school kids.
Everyone is so laid back and just having a good time. You get to see their real personalities come through.
It was more of the same Thursday for the Big All-City basketball games at Putnam West.
For the record, the East team dominated both games. Wasn’t shocked that a Del City, Norman, Midwest City-led girls team would reign supreme. But a little shocked that a boys West team with Donte’ Foster (Guthrie), Kyle Hardrick (Putnam City), Fayzon Richey (El Reno) as well as other studs took it on the chin.
Anyway, the highlight of the night was the skills competition. Or in other words: The Del City awards banquet.
It started during halftime of the girls game with a 3-point shooting contest that pitted Del City’s Bobbie Marshall vs. Putnam North’s Shilalie Jones.
I’ve seen Marshall play a couple of times, so “the smart money” was on her.
The contest was whoever could make the most 3s in one minute. Marshall got on a roll early and drained about six in a row before settling for 10.
Jones was comfortable in the initial spot for the shots and never got on track.
Winner: Marshall, DC.
The boys was a real battle between Ismail Calhoun of DC and Keaton Callins of Guthrie.
Calhoun also got on a little roll himself and ended up making 14 attempts. What was impressive for Calhoun was his quick release.
