Amid many changes in the district, Moore High School is expected to name its new football coach at a school board meeting on Monday.

Todd Watters was let go at the end of the school year after his second season with the Lions.

Westmoore football already went through a coaching change, and Southmoore’s Jeff Brickman resigned this week to take an assistant coaching position at Oklahoma Baptist.

In addition, Moore Schools athletic director Carl Franks is expected to be reassigned within the district before the next school year, according to sources.


Southmoore pitcher Katelyn Brown was named Gatorade’s Oklahoma Softball Player of the Year on Thursday, capping a strong senior season in which she helped the SaberCats win two state championships.

Brown, who was The Oklahoman’s Big All-City Player of the Year, went 22-2 with a 0.37 ERA in the fall. She recorded 212 strikeouts. She also hit .449 and drove in 34 runs.

During the spring slowpitch season, she excelled in the outfield, hitting .579 with four homers and 40 RBIs.

She has signed to play at Southern Nazarene University.

The two championships are the first titles in Southmoore school history in a female sport.

The award recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field.

Brown is now a finalist for the Gatorade National Softball Player of the Year award, which will be announced later this month.
