Former Putnam North girls basketball coach Londaryl Perry has landed on his feet with one of the state’s most established programs.
Perry has been named the girls coach at Millwood.
Millwood athletic director Shannon Hayes told The Oklahoman on Monday that Perry was officially named his replacement atop the Falcons’ girls basketball program, completing a turnaround from an incident that could have soured Perry's career.
“It just shows you that I had a lot of people praying for me,” Perry told The Oklahoman. “It just shows you that God does work things out. Sometimes God puts you in different places to learn lessons. If you learn from it, you can move forward in life. If not, you’ll always walk around with
Most Oklahomans by now know of the legend of Sam Bradford - his athleticism that could have taken him into collegiate (and potentially pro) careers in golf, basketball, football or even hockey.
But fans of the Philadelphia Eagles haven't been quick to but into Bradford just yet as their quarterback of the future. Bradford hasn't yet had that roaring success in the NFL he experienced as a record-setting quarterback at Putnam City North and OU. He's battled injury after injury and was traded to the Eagles from the St. Louis Rams this offseason.
Paul Domowitch of Philly.com traveled to Oklahoma to write an extensive background piece on Bradford, interviewing former coaches Bob Wilson, Bob Stoops, Bradford's parents and more.
Stoops himself thinks Bradford will thrive in Philadelphia. From Domowitch's:
"I think Sam fits everything about what Chip wants to do," Stoops said in Part II of Domowitch's piece . "He's an incredible athlete who, because of injuries, hasn't been able to demonstrate it yet."
