“It was one of those deals where everything was great at Cushing but there was something that was tearing at us the whole time,” he said. “You never know if you're doing the right thing or not and everybody says, ‘Well, it's a business.' Well, it's not a business; you're in the profession of caring for kids and others and your heart has a lot to do with it and we just felt that we could probably best serve here.”

Zinn staying in Anadarko now leaves Cushing scrambling to find a coach.

“I just hate it because they're such good people and I got to know some of the kids,” Zinn said. “They're as good as it gets, as far as that goes. I feel bad because I left them in a bind right now … but hopefully they'll be able to go find somebody to take it.”

Simpkins joins Casady offensive lineman Josh Wariboko-Alali and Lawton offensive lineman Jalin Barnett as juniors-to-be with offers.

OCU SIGNS GIGGER

Moore basketball standout Dorian Gigger recently signed a letter of intent to continue his career at Oklahoma City University.

Gigger, who played for OCU alum Aaron Howell at Moore, averaged 14.9 points as a senior.

“Dorian has been the backbone of the Moore basketball program for four years,” said Howell, who was part of OCU's 1996 NAIA national championship team. “He is a leader on and off the court and has the drive and heart to continue to grow throughout his OCU career and his life. He is truly deserving of any and all accolades and many more.”
