Things looking up for OKCPS football
Worked on a story that will run in tomorrow’s paper about the plight of the Oklahoma City Public Schools in football.
There has seemed to be an accepting attitude of the struggles around OKCPS football in the past. No more.
OKCPS athletic director Phil Ingersoll has brought with him a new attitude to the office since he took over in 2007. He worked on getting control of the school’s fields (as crazy as it sounds now, the fields were, until last year, run individually, with at least some district schools being forced to pay rent just to play). He also has ensured that each class will have new jerseys at some point in their high school careers.
Perhaps the biggest thing, though, has been the hiring he’s done withing the district, trying to make sure the coaches fit into what the district is trying to accomplish.
In researching this story, the coaches were, across the board, VERY complimentary of the work Ingersoll has done.
“Our schools get everything they need,” Ingersoll said Friday night when I saw him at the Douglass-Clinton-Choctaw scrimmage. “I’m really happy with how things are going in the district.”
