Carl Albert: J.T. Realmuto an all-around talent...
By Robert Przybylo
Based on athletics and the respect he’s always shown, I’d be willing to put Carl Albert star J.T. Realmuto in the contention for The Oklahoman‘s Scholar Athlete award.
But then when you actually look at his academics, he really does deserve it. Having great GPAs is great, but the weighted system has kinda taken the fun out of it.
However, you can’t discredit or question a 32 on the ACT. Guess I shouldn’t be too shocked as he showed a lot of intelligence on the field, court and diamond.
This was THE year for Realmuto, and I felt he ran away with the award. Whether it was at quarterback leading the Titans to the Class 5A state championship or being an undersized forward fighting for the boards on Jay Price’s basketball team or hitting one ridiculous home run after another for the baseball team, he did just about everything you possibly can.
What I remember most was his performance against Bixby in the state championship football game. He (and the team) simply would not be denied. You knew what the play was going to be, but you couldn’t stop it. And when he needed to make the big throw, he did.
