CLASS 6A TITLE DATE SET

The Class 6A football championship game is officially scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 5, at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.

The board unanimously approved moving the game there due to Bedlam being played on Saturday, with Classes 5A and 4A playing their championship games at 1 p.m. and 7 Friday.

It has not been determined which class will play the first game on Friday.

Also, with the 6A game being moved to Thursday, the previous week's semifinals will be played at a neutral site on Friday, Nov. 29.

SCOTT REINSTATED

Former Sequoyah-Tahlequah football coach Brent Scott was reinstated by the OSSAA after submitting a letter pledging to obey the OSSAA regulations moving forward.

Scott was suspended for one year after allowing 12 of his players to attend summer football camps paid for by the school, which is a violation of OSSAA rules. Sequoyah-Tahlequah was forced to forfeit nine games and a spot in the 2012 playoffs.

Scott is still involved in a termination lawsuit with Sequoyah-Tahlequah and chose not to make an appearance due to the case. His lawyer, Chad Smith, also could not attend.

SPRING BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP SITES SET

The Class 6A and 5A spring baseball championships are returning to the Oklahoma City metro.

During Wednesday's meeting, OSSAA assistant director Mike Whaley informed the board of directors that the Classes 2A-6A will play at Oklahoma's L. Dale Mitchell Park and Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.
