OKC POW: Emilio Gatewood, Millwood
The Oklahoma City football player of the week is Millwood running back Emilio Gatewood. Big things were expected of Gatewood this season but Gatewood has been hampered by injuries. He seems to be getting healthy now, though. In Thursday night’s win over SeeWorth, Gatewood scored on runs of 33, 11 and 29 yards and threw a 26-yard touchdown pass — all in the first quarter. If Gatewood can keep giving the Falcons a consistent running game, Millwood will be able to challenge for the 2A title they were expected to contend for before losses to McGuinness and Jones took some shine off their season.
Keon Johnson, Star Spencer: Johnson played a big role in the Bobcats pulling off a fourth consecutive shutout, beating Seminole 22-0. Johnson had a big tackle on fourth and goal, intercepted a pass in the end zone and broke up two more passes near the goalline.
Terrance Olds, Star Spencer: Olds had 107 yards and two touchdowns, including a 63-yarder on the game’s first play.
Darwin Rideau, Star Spencer: However he decides to spell his name, Rideau is a force for the Bobcats. Thursday night against Seminole, Rideau had 192 yards on just 11 carries, including a 96-yard touchdown run.
Ricardo Trejo, U.S. Grant: Trejo took first in the Capitol Hill meet last Monday, finishing with a time of 16.59.
Enrique Benetiz, Southeast: Benitez finished second to Trejo at Capitol Hill.
Laurence Kirhendell, Millwood and Anthony Lofton, Centennial: Both qualified for state, with Kirhendell finishing 9th and Lofton 19th at the 3A regional at Chisholm.
Jennifer Nunez, Capitol Hill: Nunez finished sixth on the girls side of the Capitol Hill meet with a 12.53.
Victory Kappel, Southeast senior outside hitter: The team’s most reliable and best all-around player all season, and the biggest reason Southeast was able to get to the state tournament.
