Best of the Rest honor: Jameson Ballinger, Santa Fe South...
By Robert Przybylo
From talking to Santa Fe South coach Jerry Braziel and quarterback Jameson Ballinger, it is extremely easy to see that coach Mike Cartmill still lives on in every way possible at that school.
Cartmill died in the spring, and the Saints have dedicated their season to his memory. He musta been smiling at what he saw Friday night.
SFS overcame a 40-18 deficit in the fourth quarter to win 46-40 at Cushing for the team’s first ever district victory.
Ballinger threw for six touchdowns (3 apiece to Ivan Zavala and Abraham Luna) and also caught the first touchdown of his career.
In all the wackiness of scenarios, you won’t find Santa Fe South in any of them. This, however, was their night.
For more, here’s my piece from Monday’s paper.
Sheldon Wilson, Anadarko: Not his most impressive in terms of stats but more than 200 total yards and 2 TDs was most significant outing in 14-7 road win at Tuttle.
John McCracken, Blanchard: Kameron Doolittle and Kendal Thompson weren’t the only big names back. McCracken scored three touchdowns to help the Lions to a HUGE 27-20 road win at Marlow.
Derek Patterson, Kingfisher: Quarterback accounted for three touchdowns in win against Centennial. Sets stage up for battle at Heritage Hall on Friday.
Adam Boyd, McAlester: There are other stars besides QB Tony Kiefer. Boyd had four receiving scores, a PR touchdown and two picks in a win for the Buffs.
