Thompson, Bradley to represent Oklahoma

The ESPN RISE Elite 11 Quarterback Competition has seen the likes of former Florida great Tim Tebow and former Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford.

However, it had never seen a signal-caller from Oklahoma in its previous 11 years until now as two high school quarterbacks will represent the state in the four-day event later this week at Soka University of America in California.

Southmoore's Kendal Thompson and Broken Arrow's Archie Bradley are two of the 12 quarterbacks who have been invited. Thompson has committed to Oklahoma, while Bradley has committed to OU to play baseball and football.

The final 12 were chosen after a process of tape evaluation, interviews and workouts. Oklahoma State commit J.W. Walsh of Denton, Texas, will also be participating.

They will compete against each other and receive guidance from some of the top college quarterbacks, including Miami's Jacory Harris and Jerrod Johnson of Texas A&M.

Edmond Memorial baseball with banner summer

The Edmond Memorial baseball team's summer didn't start out the best way, but the Bulldogs are certainly ending on a high note.

Following a victory in the Pure Prairie League championship last week, Memorial has reached the finals of the American Legion Tournament. The Bulldogs are playing Pryor in a best-of-three series this weekend.
