2008 All-State Football
Tulsa Union’s Jeremy Smith didn’t put up the most eye-popping overall numbers. His 1,664 yards rushing were very good but several players in the state ran for more yards.
This season: Lowe was part of the best secondary in the state, recording 127 tackles, four interceptions, recovering a fumble and getting a sack. He had nearly 400 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
The Wildcats had been a power in 8-man for a long time but it wasn’t clear how well they would be able to adjust to the 11-man game after getting bumped up to Class A. Morrison did just fine, getting through the toughest district in the class with just one loss and then going on to win yet another state championship.
2008 All-State Offense
Heritage Hall senior Turner Petersen could have orchestrated a commercial — where he takes the ball and hands it off to himself and then throws it back to himself only to be tackled by himself.
MIDWEST CITY — During his freshman year at Carl Albert, David Oku was already thinking of his legacy at the tradition-rich Mid Del school. The standout running back had his eyes on becoming the all-time rushing yardage leader at the Class 5A school.
GUTHRIE — It didn't take but the first quarter of the first game to realize Guthrie senior wide receiver Donte' Foster wasn't content with one Class 5A state football championship. Video: Interview
It comes as no surprise that Keenan Taylor’s most memorable moment involves blocking for Michael Doctor. Video: Highlights
BROKEN ARROW — Alvin Bailey was already 290 pounds as a junior with Broken Arrow. As a senior, he was more than 300 pounds and anchored the Tigers' offensive line for the third year in a row. Video: Highlights
SAND SPRINGS — Michael Bowie finally feels comfortable with his college decision.
NORMAN — Despite a summer spent impressing college scouts and winning kicking camp awards, Bryce Easley had to wait a while until the right offer came along. But when it did, he knew the waiting was more than worth it. Video: Interview
Clinton running back Delans Griffin isn't satisfied with his team's 10-3 record t his past season, and he's just as unhappy about the time he missed because of an injury.
Jenks running back Tramaine Thompson might not have walked off the field for the last time a winner, but the way he sees it the fact the Trojans were around to face Tulsa Union in the Class 6A finals was an act of defiance. Video: Interview
2008 All-State Defense
There was a time when McGuinness students groused to Gabe Ikard about being bored at Irish football games. Seems McGuinness was winning so big, so frequently that there was no excitement. Video: Interview
If you're a quarterback, Glenpool defensive end BJ Herring isn't the kind of guy you want to be running into on the field. Video: Interview
DEWAR — Dewar senior Ronnell Lewis is an Oklahoman All-State linebacker. Video: Interview<
TULSA — If playing for a private Christian school (in its first year sanctioned by OSSAA) and on small-school level was expected to hurt Cody Wilson’s chances at a Division I-A scholarship, well it didn’t. In fact, the all-over-the-field linebacker had an offer from Tulsa even before his senior season at Lincoln Christian began. Video: Interview
Whether he’s on offense or defense, Tulsa Washington running back/linebacker Michael Doctor is never one to shy away from contact. Video: Highlights
LAWTON — The first time he got hit on the football field, Javon Harris stopped and thought: “I'm not going to I'm not going to be getting hit like that anymore, I'm going to start delivering the blows.” Video: Interview
