High school notebook: Sequoyah-Tahlequah out of playoffs after ruling

by Ed Godfrey and Ryan Aber and Scott Wright Published: November 3, 2012

“We have been in playoff mode the last four weeks because we had to win out,” George said.

Tramble carried the ball just 11 times but scored on touchdown runs 93, 66 and 5 yards for the Savages. He nearly returned an interception for another score.

Quarterback Colton Owen rushed for 91 yards on 17 carries and tossed a touchdown pass to wide receiver Rylan Pierce.

Wide receiver Tanner Ricky scored on a 25-yard run on the jet sweep.

Tecumseh now has made the playoffs three of the last four years after missing the postseason last year.

“We had a lot of injuries last year,” said George, who has 18 seniors on this year's club. “We had nine starters out after Week 2 and didn't do a very good job of battling adversity. We just didn't get it done.”

The Savages got it done this year, but their reward is a date with the defending 3A state champions in the opening round.

“They are talented, big and fast,” George said. “They are one of the top three or four teams in the state for a reason.”


The Oklahoma Coaches Association released its All-State volleyball team Friday. The All-State game will be played during All-State week July 28-Aug. 2 in the Tulsa area. The exact date and location will be announced at a later date.
