Rejoice Christian hasn't messed around since joining the OSSAA for the 2012 season. The Eagles went 11-2 a year ago, and now are viewed as a serious contender in Class B.


The District B-3 coaches voted them the overwhelming favorite for the district crown after the Eagles logged eight shutouts a year ago. The Owasso-based school is No. 4 in The Oklahoman's preseason Class B rankings.

Fourth-year starter Taylor Wise leads the offense at quarterback once again, with Jace Sanchez returning after rushing for more than 1,200 yards at running back.

COYLE'S WEATHERS BACK AT QB

Coyle quarterback Ryan Weathers is back in charge of the offense after guiding the team to an 8-3 record a year ago.

The Bluejackets have been a playoff regular in recent years, and look to get back there again — with hopes of possibly hosting a postseason game on their own field.

For the first time in school history, Coyle will play games on its own campus at a newly constructed stadium. The Bluejackets had been playing home games at Langston University for several years.
