It's been a whirlwind weekend so far for Edmond Memorial senior left tackle Lucas Gerdes.
Friday, his Bulldogs stunned Mustang 41-13 in an upset only Gerdes and his teammates could've predicted happening. It was Edmond Memorial's first win of the season.
Then Saturday morning at 6 a.m., he and his father, Bob, left for Texas Tech's home game against Oklahoma for an unofficial visit.
“We had nothing to lose, so we just told ourselves all week to fly around and have great practices,” Gerdes said. “We knew we could do it.”
Gerdes doesn't have any scholarship offers yet, but took an unofficial visit to Oklahoma State last weekend.
Texas Tech offers Santa Fe's Harding
Texas Tech became the most recent program to extend an offer to Edmond Santa Fe safety Khari Harding. The Red Raiders' offer came Saturday during Harding's visit to the team's game against Oklahoma. Tech is targeting the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Harding as a linebacker prospect.
Harding has been committed to Arkansas since June, but has remained busy on the recruiting path. Washington State recently extended an offer, and several other programs have remained in contact with him. He visited Oklahoma State for last week's game against Texas, though the Cowboys have not made an offer.
Harding, No. 6 on The Oklahoman's Super 30 recruit rankings, has 50 tackles and three interceptions through six games this season.
Sink keeps Anadarko rolling
Anadarko seemed prime for a drop-off this season with Sheldon Wilson and the rest of last year's talented class gone and the Warriors moving up to Class 4A after winning the 3A title last season.
But Anadarko survived what looked to be its toughest regular-season challenge Friday night, beating Clinton 28-21.
Junior running back R.J. Sink ran for three touchdowns, including a 2-yard score with 3:16 left that proved to be the game-winner.
Sink now has 16 touchdowns.
Friday night heroes
Wetumka's Derrick Moore continued to put up huge numbers, rushing for 255 yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries in a 52-12 win over No. 4 Dewar. Moore has more than 1,300 yards this season.
