“They looked at Arkansas, Texas, New Mexico, Kansas and Florida in addition to Oklahoma schools to try to get a game scheduled but couldn't get anything else worked out for this year,” OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley said. “We know we need to be real careful there since they're losing a week of practice to start and the heat is an issue that time of year.”
The board also voted to send out a ballot to schools on whether or not to change the rules to allow underclassmen to participate in national all-star games.
Also, the board voted to consider charter and enterprise schools as having the same boundaries as the public schools whose borders the school lies within. Several such Oklahoma City-area schools — Santa Fe South, Dove Science, Harding Fine Arts, etc. — would share boundaries with Oklahoma City Public Schools for purposes of eligibility of incoming student-athletes.
