Wilson will start early at TU

I wrote about Cody Wilson in the preseason, but he doesn’t get the publicity of most of the Division-IA signees in the state because of playing in Class 2A. However, the Lincoln Christian linebacker is having an impressive year on and off the field. So here’s an update.
In its first season as an OSSAA sanctioned school, Lincoln Christian is 7-1 overall and 5-0 in District 2A-7. Wilson, who has signed with Tulsa is a big reason why. He has 84 tackles (37 solo), four sacks and 20 tackles for loss despite playing past the third quarter just three times this season.  Wilson will graduate early in December (as valedictorian with a 4.17 GPA) and will be able to get a head start at TU by participating in spring drills.
Wilson, whose father Curtis played at Missouri, has shared the spotlight with his little brother. Roman Wilson has 53 receptions for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns to go along with 25 tackles, two interceptions and three fumble recoveries. He’s also kicked 35 extra points and a pair of field goals. Lincoln hosts Wyandotte Friday and then will have a showdown at Nowata, likely for the district crown.
