Seminole's Garrett Clark commits to OBU
BY RYAN ABER
Seminole quarterback Garrett Clark became the first player from the 2012 class to commit to Oklahoma Baptist University.
Clark threw for 2,330 yards and 24 touchdowns with nine interceptions as a senior. He also rushed for 556 yards and 13 touchdowns.
“His work ethic has been phenomenal,” Chieftains coach Mike Snyder said. “He has so much upside to him on the field and off the field. I refer to him as the high school Tim Tebow because of the way he carries himself.”
Clark was a four-year starter at Seminole.
He visited Northwestern Oklahoma State also but felt OBU was the right fit.
The Bison are scheduled to play their first varsity game since 1940 in 2013.
“He’s realistic about things and can understand the bigger picture,” Snyder said of Clark’s decision to go to a program where there would be no games next year. “He was comfortable and familiar with OBU and that was where he wanted to go.”
Snyder said new Bison coach Chris Jensen contacted Clark soon after taking the job earlier this month.
A day after Jensen’s hiring, 2011 Jones graduate Tyler Bayless signed with the Bison.
Clark’s parents are both OBU graduates.
