"Wait, so you're in what district?"
By Robert Przybylo
Every coach I talked to before the proposed district realignments for the 2010-11 football seasons Wednesday was a little nervous/anxious about how everything would shake out.
But now that it’s over, it was a whole lot of much ado about nothing. Nobody I talked to seemed to be angry, just a whole lot of “eh.”
Everything will be finalized at an OSSAA board meeting Aug. 11.
Until then, some things that caught the Boneman’s eye from each class.
In 6A, it’s District 6A-3 that has me curious. Supposedly an “east” district, half the teams are teams us “westerners” are familiar with.
Norman, Putnam West, Shawnee and Southmoore are all in the district to go with Jenks, Broken Arrow, Muskogee and Sapulpa.
Intrigued by 5A-1. Carl Albert and Guthrie stay together, but you add in Deer Creek and El Reno. And as Antlers coach Grant Gower said: “It’s the Suburban Conference plus Southeast and Ada.”
Noble and Western Heights will also be in 5A-1.
The question in 4A was which team, Bishop McGuinness or Douglass, would be making the move from 4A-1 to 4A-2.
Your answer: Douglass. Essentially, the Trojans are just taking the spot vacated by Star Spencer’s move to 3A.
Good balance at the top with the Irish and Clinton in 4A-1 and Douglass and Glenpool together in 4A-2.
