Isaac Maselera's third-grade football team was one shy of a full squad. "We only had 10 people,” he said. "Everyone else had at least 11, but we just went ahead and played with our 10.” Despite the roster shortage, the team did well. Then a lot of people came to a conclusion that's been realized many times since — Maselera's considerable talents count for more than one person. Now, heading into his senior season at Glenpool, the defensive back is expecting big things. "I want to have the best season I've had and for the team to do well,” he said. "The team, that's really my focus.” Maselera, who also spends some time at running back and returns kicks, gives Glenpool the chance to return to its powerhouse ways of 2007 and 2008, when it played for the Class 4A state championship. Maselera was a sophomore on the 2008 squad and had a breakout season. Enough to draw the attention of Oklahoma State and get a scholarship offer just two months into his junior campaign. "I've always grown up loving OSU,” said Maselera. "My mom (Donna) graduated from there and my aunt, too. It's the perfect place for me.” Glenpool went 9-2 last year but exited the playoffs in the first round. But there were chemistry problems on the squad. And despite being a quiet, soft spoken person, Maselera is ready to step into a leadership role. "I'm pretty shy, I really don't talk much,” he said. "I usually don't say anything on the field. I just play. But I can be a vocal leader, though. I'll step up to that when the team needs it.” One of the reasons OSU offered Maselera early (he was the Cowboys' first commitment of the 2011 recruiting class) is his blazing speed. He's been clocked at 4.39 in the 40 and placed fifth at state in the 100 meters and fourth in the 200 meters. Last season, the 6-0, 190-pounder had 72 tackles and scored nine touchdowns. He returned three kickoffs for an average of 34.6 yards and took one the distance. He also took an interception back for a score. As a sophomore, he had more than 100 tackles. "Last year things got frustrating at the end of the season,” Maselera said. "This team will be more together. We'll play together better.” And with 11 players on the field, imagine the possibilities.
