High school notebook: Altus' Diquon Woodhouse commits to Navy

by Ryan Aber and Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Published: December 4, 2012

Altus running back Diquon Woodhouse verbally committed to Navy on Tuesday, according to multiple Internet reports.

Though Altus struggled, Woodhouse, 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, was a reliable back throughout the season, closing the season in style with more than 200 yards and four touchdowns on Senior Night last month.

He picked Navy over New Mexico and Wyoming.

He's one of two top Oklahoma backs being recruited by the Naval Academy, along with Douglass' Chris High.


Durant running back Dakota Diessner committed to Air Force this week.

Diessner (5-foot-10, 180 pounds) ran for 827 yards and 14 touchdowns this year and had 206 receiving yards.

Air Force does not participate in the National Letter of Intent program. Falcons commitments instead sign a Certificate of Intent signifying their intention to follow through on the academy's appointment process.

The Chargers lack height this season, so they will play smaller and faster.

“We like it,” Warner said. “We play better that way. We like the speed, we like to run, we like to play fast.”

Junior Erika Wakefield averaged 19.8 points per game last season, and the up-tempo style could benefit her.
