VOTE COMING ON UNDERCLASSMEN IN ALL-STAR EVENTS
A proposal of the OSSAA's football advisory committee that would allow underclassmen to participate in national All-Star competitions could go to a vote of the OSSAA member schools.
The board took no action on the proposal Wednesday, with the suggestion from the OSSAA staff that a referendum ballot be developed and sent to the member schools for a vote, possibly as early as next month.
The proposal would apply to all sports, not just football.
Other proposals from the football advisory committee — including changes to the number of schools in Class 3A and below, and a proposal to allow teams to play a regular season game the week before the scheduled start of the season — were voted down by the board.
NEW OFFICIALS NAMED
The OSSAA board unanimously selected Todd Steidley of Claremore, currently acting as vice president, as the new president of the board for the 2013-14 school year.
Duane Merideth of Durant was voted in as vice president for the coming school year.
Kingston's Jay McAdams is the current president for the remainder of the school year.
