  • Angels' Garrett Richards has torn knee tendon, will miss pennant drive

    Published: Thu, Aug 21, 2014

    Garrett Richards, who played at Edmond Memorial and OU, suffered a torn patellar tendon in his left knee and will undergo surgery Friday, a procedure that will sideline the Angels right-hander for six to nine months and could deal a severe blow to the team's pennant hopes. Richards, 26, the team's best starting pitcher, suffered the injury in the second inning Wednesday, when he caught a spike in the dirt while running to cover first base on a potential double-play ball and fell awkwardly to the ground. Medical personnel tended to Richards for eight minutes before he was wheeled off the field on a stretcher. Richards flew to Los Angeles on Thursday morning, and an MRI test confirmed the injury, which could cause Richards to miss the start of 2015.

    BY SCOTT WRIGHT, JACOB UNRUH AND TRENT SHADID | Published: Fri, Aug 15, 2014

    Edmond Memorial running back Warren Wand isn’t ready to say he’s verbally committed to Arkansas State.

Wand, who is No. 11 on The Oklahoman’s Super 30, also has offers from New Mexico and Southern Mississippi. He rushed for 1,769 yards and 15 touchdowns last season, leading the Bulldogs to the Class 6A playoffs for the second straight season. But he’s also recovering from a

  • Speed makes difference for Memorial’s Robert Charlton

    By Scott Wright | Updated: Sun, May 25, 2014

    As players mature, develop and train, they’re going to get faster. But elite speed rarely blossoms out of hard work. Either you have it or you don’t. That’s what makes prospects such as Edmond Memorial cornerback Robert Charlton a valuable commodity on the recruiting scene. Charlton’s stock rose during the spring as he showed off his impressive speed on the track. He ran the fastest 100-meter time in Class 6A at 10.58 seconds and finished second at state in the event. But the 5-foot-10, 170-pounder’s speed translates to the football field, too, where he had 70 tackles — a lofty number for a cornerback — during his junior season.
