SOUTHMOORE'S EARP SCHEDULES VISIT

Southmoore linebacker Cody Earp will take a visit to South Dakota State this weekend.

Earp has an offer from Colorado State-Pueblo and has drawn attention from Wyoming, Indiana State, Southeast Missouri State and Pittsburg State.

He had 70 tackles this season.

Also, SaberCats fullback/tight end/defensive end Jackson Stallings is expected to make his decision Monday.

Stallings has taken visits to several Ivy League schools and his offers include Air Force, Harvard and Yale.

Ivy League schools such as Harvard and Yale do not award athletic scholarships but grant need-based financial aid for athletes.

5A, 6A STATE BASEBALL SITES UNSETTLED

The Class 5A and 6A state baseball championships will likely be played in the Oklahoma City area for the first time in more than a decade, but the exact sites are still unknown.

The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association continues to search for a college field to play the title games on May 11, but nothing has surfaced yet.

Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Oral Roberts all have conflicts, either with their field being used or other events on campus. Games are scheduled for both the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark and OneOK Field in Tulsa.

The OSSAA has checked with several Division II and NAIA schools, but none of those fields will work, because of availability or other issues, like lighting, seating or parking.

The Class 2A-4A state tournaments will continue to be held in the OKC area as well.

The OSSAA hopes to have the 5A and 6A sites worked out in the coming weeks.

HELKER COMMITS TO OC

Edmond Memorial goaltender Evan Helker recently committed to Oklahoma Christian University.

Helker was also being recruited by Oral Roberts, Missouri State, Oklahoma Baptist and Southern Nazarene.

As a junior, Helker had nine shutouts and allowed just eight goals while stopping 71 shots.

He was also and all-District 6A-4 punter for the Bulldogs this year.
