Koby Scoville knows his 2014 Casady football team has an opportunity to do something special. The sixth-year coach also knows that his team has to come through on Friday nights.

Casady heads into next season with 14 seniors who bring plenty of experience and are drawing interest from college recruiters. Offensive lineman Josh Wariboko-Alali is garnering the most attention, and deservedly so, but there are other players on the roster who have helped turn the tide at Casady.

One of two Oklahoma schools in the Southwestern Preparatory Conference, Casady finished the 2013 season 6-4, with one win more than in 2012. Scoville said the improvement is a good sign, but the team is looking for more.

“Every year our goal is to win our conference,” Scoville said. “SPC champs, that is goal No. 1. Then we look at how we can get there, what we need to do to get there.”

Scoville said the team needs to put in as much work off the field as it does on the field to accomplish those goals. Scoville pointed to quarterback T’Quan Wallace, receiver Denver Johnson and safety Gary Woods as three seniors who are leading the team in that effort.
