Southmoore had initially hoped to hold its last few days of spring football practice, culminating with an intrasquad scrimmage that would also be a fundraiser for the school's students impacted by Monday's tornado.

However, the condition of the roads, combined with other hazards around the area, led the coaching staff to cancel their plans.

Southmoore had 19 players whose families lost their homes in the tornado.

The team has had a successful fundraising campaign through its website,, and its booster club. They plan to begin distributing funds equally to the school's impacted families this weekend, and will do so once a week until all the donations have been given to those in need.


Casady offensive lineman Josh Wariboko-Alali became the second Oklahoman of the 2015 recruiting class to pick up an offer when Oregon State offered Monday.

Wariboko-Alali, at 6-foot-3 and 310 pounds, has begun picking up steam on the recruiting scene this spring behind strong performances at the U.S. Army National Combine and the Rivals/Under Armour Camp.

Lawton offensive lineman Jalin Barnett was the first 2015 player in the state to be offered. Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Texas State and Oregon State have all offered him.
