Wednesday also was a dream come true for Jake Warehime, the Del City head coach's son. Warehime, an offensive lineman for Del City, signed with Emporia State, Kan.

“Twelve years ago today I watched my brother (Derek Warehime) sign his letter of intent to the University of Tulsa,” Jake Warehime said. “Ever since then I wanted to do the same thing.”

Warehime, who is 6-0 and 290 pounds, might have been a Division I recruit had he been a few inches taller.

“There is probably a lot of truth to that,” Nick Warehime said. “They say the film doesn't lie and he has great film. He is a physical player. He has kind of been our bell cow up front for the last three years, making calls at the line of scrimmage. He ended up at a great place. If he goes in in shape and works at it, I know they will give him an opportunity."

NOTE: Other Del City players who signed letters of intent Wednesday to play college football were Jon McBride, Northwestern Oklahoma; Bryson Parker, Panhandle State; Markice McCane, Panhandle State; Terry Love, Langston; and Shawn Epps, Langston.

Another player, Jacob Lamb, may receive an academic scholarship from Westminster and play football at the Fulton, Mo., school, Nick Warehime said. Lamb had an ACT score of 29.
