Douglass defensive end and LSU commit Deondre Clark continues to make national headlines, being selected for the Semper Fidelis All-America game and the Team USA International Bowl roster, Douglass coach Willis Alexander said.

Clark joins Tulsa Union tight end and Oklahoma commit Carson Meier in the Semper Fidelis All-America game, which will be played Jan. 5 at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., outside Los Angeles. It will be televised by Fox Sports 1.

The International Bowl, pitting Team USA against Team Canada in five different age groups, will be held Feb. 7-8 in Arlington, Texas. Clark was selected for the oldest group, for high school seniors.

Clark, 6-foot-3, 240 pounds, recently surpassed the 50-sack mark for his career and has 11 so far this season. He also has rushed for 505 yards and nine touchdowns on 56 carries in five games as a tailback.


Some confusion about the dates of fall break led to this week's game between Norman and Choctaw originally being scheduled as a Thursday night game, but it has been switched to Friday at Choctaw.

Last year's meeting occurred on Thursday during the week of fall break at Norman, but this year's game did not align with Choctaw's fall break, so the date of the game was switched.

The District 6A-4 matchup will kick off at 7 p.m. Friday in Choctaw.


After winning the Class 2A state championship last season, the Wayne softball team returns to the state tournament this week. It just isn't as the favorite to repeat.

That falls to top-ranked Dale, which opens with No. 18 Hinton on Thursday at 3 p.m.

The third-ranked Bulldogs, meanwhile, open against No. 9 Drumright at 11 a.m.

The Class 3A-B tournaments, which have normally been held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium, will begin Thursday at The Ball Fields at Firelake in Shawnee.

In Class 3A, No. 3 Washington also begins play at 11 a.m. against Meeker.

Regionals in Classes 4A-6A are also this week, with the winners advancing to next week's state tournament.
