High school football playoff rewind: Mustang comes up short against Broken Arrow
Compiled by Ed Godfrey | Nov 14, 2015Mustang upset Broken Arrow in the first round of the playoffs last season but the Broncos couldn't repeat the feat Friday night in a 24-17 loss to the Tigers. With the game tied 10-10 in the third quarter, Broken Arrow cashed in on an 80-yard touchdown pass after Mustang missed a short field goal that would have given the Broncos the lead. Star running back Jamall Shaw then hauled in a 36-yard scoring strike in the fourth quarter for a 24-10 Broken Arrow lead. Mustang rallied with quarterback Chandler Garrett tossing an 8-yard touchdown pass to get the Broncos within 24-17 with more than four minutes left. Mustang had one more shot to tie the game before Broken Arrow's defense stuffed a Bronco drive in the final minute. HERITAGE HALL CRUSHES BLANCHARD Defending state champion Heritage Hall opened up the 2015 postseason by rolling over Blanchard, 49-7, in the first round of the Class 3A playoffs. Unbeaten Heritage Hall led 49-0 at halftime as sophomore quarterback Blake Adams tossed three touchdown passes, two to senior wide receiver Tevin McDaniel of 21 and 54 yards. Senior running back Terrell Love rushed for 91 yards on 12 carries and scored two touchdowns for the Chargers. Blanchard ended its season at 7-4. HARMAN ACCOUNTS FOR FOUR TOUCHDOWNS IN CASHION WIN Quarterback Matt Harman rushed for three touchdowns and passed for another as the Wildcats trounced Morrison, 50-22, in the first round of the Class A playoffs. Harman scored on runs of 5, 69, and 1 while tossing a 19-yard scoring strike to Ryan Harrel. Trae Cochran returned a punt 67 yards for another Wildcats' score. Matthew Pharrow and Blakely Liebman also had touchdown runs for Cashion, which compiled 468 yards of total offense. STANDLEE CARRIES MEEKER PAST PERKINS Jake Standlee gained 197 yards on the ground and rushed for two touchdowns to lead Meeker to a 27-13 victory over Perkins in a Class 3A playoff game. Standlee scored on runs of 10 and 8 yards and carried the ball 27 times in the game. Levi Bagwell returned a punt 80 yards for a score and caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from Michael Nolen for the Bulldogs. Meeker improved to 9-2 on the season. Perkins finished its season at 6-5. JONES EDGES MARLOW Quarterback Brandon George's 4-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter lifted Jones over Marlow, 21-14, in the first round of the Class 3A playoffs. George also threw two second quarter touchdown passes — a 32-yard scoring strike to Dalton May and a 10-yard touchdown pass to Sean Shaw — as the Longhorns and Marlow were tied 14-14 at halftime. The game was tight despite Jones rolling up 485 yards of total offense to Marlow's 171 yards. HALSTEAD HAS BIG NIGHT FOR MINCO Tucker Halstead rushed for three touchdowns and caught a touchdown pass as Minco downed Velma-Alma, 41-27, in the first round of the Class A playoffs. Halstead ran for 141 yards and three touchdowns and also had two catches for 93 yards and a score. Halstead found the end zone on runs of 50, 4 and 18 yards while hauling in a 75-yard scoring reception from quarterback Hunter Jones, who was 13 of 21 passing for 224 yards and two touchdowns. Jones also had 60 yards rushing on seven carries. JOHNS SCORES FOUR TOUCHDOWNS FOR HENNESSEY Running back Tabor Johns rushed for four touchdowns to lead Hennessey past Christian Heritage, 45-34, in a Class 2A first round playoff game. Johns scored on runs of 2, 30, 64 and 58 yards. Johns' last two touchdowns came after Christian Heritage had taken a 27-24 lead on 50-yard scoring pass from Camden Cargill to Joseph Lemieux. Lemieux scored four touchdowns in the game for Christian Heritage, including three on short-yard runs near the goal line. The Eagles' Zane Hugaboom tossed a 10-yard touchdown pass to Dayton Wymore and also scored Hennessey's final touchdown on a 10-yard run. WRIGHT SCORES FOUR TIMES TO LEAD LUTHER Luther remained unbeaten by routing Alva, 49-12, in a Class 2A playoff game. The Lions led 40-0 at halftime. Maurice Wright had two touchdowns rushing and receiving, scoring on runs of 29 and 18 yards while catching touchdown passes of 35 and 67 yards from Chad Pridemore, who had three scores through the air.

High school notebook: Mustang-Broken Arrow rivalry brewing?
BY SCOTT WRIGHT AND JACOB UNRUH | Nov 11, 2015With their third consecutive playoff meeting on tap, Mustang and Broken Arrow might be developing a bit of a postseason rivalry. The link to a story by the Broken Arrow Ledger began to circulate among Mustang players on social media Wednesday, mostly because of a quote from a Broken Arrow player suggesting last year's win by Mustang was a fluke. “I feel like this is destiny for us to see them again this year,” Broken Arrow senior Sammy Akem told the Ledger. “We want to show them last year was just a fluke.” Multiple Mustang players and fans reposted the link to the story on social media Wednesday, quoting Akem's words, “last year was just a fluke.” Mustang quarterback Chandler Garrett rushed for all three Mustang touchdowns in last year's 22-19 win at Broken Arrow. The Tigers won 43-20 at Mustang in 2013. Second-ranked Broken Arrow (9-1) hosts the No. 6 Broncos (7-3) at 7:30 p.m. Friday. WIN-WIN WEEK RAISES $60,000 The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association annual Win-Win Week raised $60,000 this fall, OSSAA assistant director Amy Cassell said at Wednesday's board meeting. The total brings the six-year total for the event to $580,000. Win-Win Week is an annual collaborative effort of the OSSAA and the Stephenson Cancer Center. It is used to showcase cancer awareness and prevention among high school students, who use their athletic events for the cause. ALL-CITY BASKETBALL PREVIEWS THURSDAY With no football games on the schedule Thursday night, fans can get a look at some of Oklahoma City's top basketball players in action at the All-City Conference Preview scrimmages. Games will begin at 3 p.m. at John Marshall and 5 at Douglass, which will host the championship game at the end of the night. DEPEW'S QUINONES RUNS WILD In a win that helped Depew close out a 9-1 regular season, running back Steve Quinones piled up an impressive stat line last Friday. The sophomore rushed for 389 yards and five touchdowns on 28 carries, eclipsing the 2,200-yard mark for the season. Depew defeated South Coffeyville 58-40 to seal up a home playoff game this week. Tenth-ranked Depew will host Weleetka at 7:30 p.m. Friday. COLLEGE POSTCARD: MOORE GRAD SHIELDS WINS HONOR AT ST. GREG'S Moore High product Richard Shields was named the Sooner Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week for his performance in three games last week for St. Gregory's University in Shawnee. The 6-foot-3 senior guard averaged 24.0 points and 5.7 rebounds as SGU went 2-1 on the week. He made 50.0 percent of his field-goal tries and 78.6 percent of his free throws. SANTA FE SOUTH WINS ROWING CHAMPIONSHIP Santa Fe South won the SandRidge Energy Youth Rowing League Championship, hosted by OKC Riversport, last weekend. Santa Fe South won the event with a time of 1:47.3, just ahead of Oklahoma School of Science and Math at 1:47.7. ASTEC Charter was third at 1:50. Northwest Classen, U.S. Grant and Roosevelt Middle School also competed. The Youth Rowing League is open to all middle schools and high schools, and the Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation is currently seeking additional teams for the spring season.

High school notebook: OSSAA to discuss public prayer policy
By Jacob Unruh and Scott Wright Staff Writers | Nov 11, 2015The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association Board of Directors will discuss and possibly vote to take action regarding the organization's prayer policy at Wednesday's monthly meeting. What will be voted on or possibly changed has not been revealed. “It's just for discussion to see if we want to go a different direction with the policy,” OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley told The Oklahoman. “I can't say anything as of right now.” The OSSAA's policy — which was adopted in 1992 — prohibits publicly recited prayers at playoff games and championship events. The OSSAA revised the policy in June to comply with a 2000 U.S. Supreme Court decision. Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt said in October that prayer before high school sporting events can be done legally in his opinion in a response to a Rep. Bobby Cleveland's complaint about the school prayer ban. Following Pruitt's opinion, the OSSAA released a statement saying the policy would remain in effect while the opinion is reviewed. DEER CREEK'S KERSTETTER WINS FAN POLL In a tight race, Deer Creek receiver Zach Kerstetter edged Southmoore kicker Chris Nemecek to win The Oklahoman's Fans' Choice Player of the Week poll. Kerstetter won the vote 1,203-1,152. The junior receiver caught eight passes for 122 yards and a touchdown in the Antlers' 27-20 win over Guthrie last week to clinch a home playoff game. The Oklahoman's staff choice for player of the week, Braden Hudson of Putnam City, finished third with 243 votes. A total of 2,956 votes were cast for seven players. Watch NewsOK.com/Varsity on Saturday for this week's poll from the first round of the playoffs. Here are this week's results: Zach Kerstetter, Deer Creek: 1,203 votes (40.7 pct.) Chris Nemecek, Southmoore: 1,152 votes (38.97 pct.) Braden Hudson, Putnam City: 243 votes (8.22 pct.) Zack Tyler, Bethel: 155 votes (5.24 pct.) Caleb Powell, OCA: 93 votes (3.15 pct.) Terry Wilson, Del City: 61 votes (2.06 pct.) Chandler Garrett, Mustang: 49 votes (1.66 pct.) Total: 2,956 votes INVESTIGATION BEGINS IN MORRIS-OKMULGEE BRAWL A fight between Morris and Okmulgee players early in the second half Friday that led to officials ending the game is under investigation by both schools and the OSSAA. Early in the third quarter a fight broke out between two players and led to other players joining in the fight sparked officials to meet with school administrators and end the game with around 11 minutes remaining in the quarter. Morris won the game 30-0. An officials report has been filed to the OSSAA, which has sent the report to both schools and requested an internal investigation. “My official told me he collaborated with administration from both schools and it was a mutual agreement to stop the game at that point,” OSSAA assistant director Mike Whaley said. “I don't know exactly numbers-wise” how many were involved. Under OSSAA rules, athletes involved in a fight are suspended the next two games. Any player who is not in the field of play that leaves the team bench is subject to a one-game suspension. Neither team made the football playoffs, which means suspensions would be applied to the next sport the athlete participates. JONES DEFENSE GOING STRONG After registering a few big wins early in the season, Jones has slipped under the radar, despite piling up more victories. The Longhorns closed the regular season undefeated behind a defense that proved difficult to score on. Jones allowed 7.7 points per game, with just three opponents scoring in double-digits. One of those was Bethel in Week 9, which scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter after Jones built a 56-3 lead. Anchored by defensive tackle Ty Hughes up front, and with several talented athletes on the back end, Jones has allowed just 166.1 total yards per game. Fourth-ranked Jones will host Marlow in the first round of the Class 3A playoffs at 7:30 p.m. Friday. DEPEW'S QUINONES RUNS WILD In a win that helped Depew close out a 9-1 regular season, running back Steve Quinones piled up an impressive stat line last Friday. The sophomore rushed for 389 yards and five touchdowns on 28 carries, eclipsing the 2,200-yard mark for the season. Depew defeated South Coffeyville 58-40 to seal up a home playoff game this week. Tenth-ranked Depew will host Weleetka at 7:30 p.m. Friday. COLLEGE POSTCARD: MOORE GRAD SHIELDS WINS HONOR AT ST.

Player to watch, best first-round matchup and more
High school football playoffs: Class 6A-I bracket breakdown
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Nov 8, 2015Player to watch — Tyler Adkins, Tulsa Union: A compact and powerful running back, Adkins set Union's career rushing record on Friday night, breaking former Oklahoma State star Jeremy Smith's mark of 4,242. Best first-round matchup — Edmond Santa Fe at Southmoore: It seems like a long time ago, but back in Week 3, Santa Fe pushed Southmoore to the brink in a 34-31 SaberCat win. Second-round showdown — Jenks vs. Tulsa Union: If the favorites pull through in the first round, we're set up for a semifinal meeting between the two teams that have combined to win the last 19 titles in the state's largest class. More interestingly, that guarantees someone other than the two power programs a spot in the title game from the other side of the bracket. Upset watch — Mustang at Broken Arrow: Broken Arrow comes in as a district champ, with Mustang as a No. 4 seed, but the Broncos won at B.A. in last year's first round. And Mustang is playing its best football of the season right now. By Scott Wright, staff writer

To open the playoffs next week, the Broncos (7-3, 4-3) will travel to Broken Arrow, the same place they went — and won — in last year’s first round.
High school football: Mustang routs Moore to clinch playoff spot
By Scott Wright Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Nov 5, 2015MOORE — Three weeks ago at Moore Stadium, Mustang's season had bottomed out. That night, the Broncos walked off the field after an ugly loss to Southmoore wounded and worried that their playoff hopes might be fading. Once thought to be among Class 6A Division I's best teams outside of Jenks and Tulsa Union, Mustang was one more loss away from becoming an afterthought. Yet on Thursday night, a revitalized Mustang team appeared on that same Moore Stadium turf, piling up over 500 yards of offense in a 56-9 rout of Moore that clinched the No. 4 seed in District 6A-I-2. To open the playoffs next week, the Broncos (7-3, 4-3) will travel to Broken Arrow, the same place they went — and won — in last year's first round. “It's a roller-coaster of a season,” said quarterback Chandler Garrett, who threw for 299 yards and five touchdowns, completing 21 of 26 passes. “We rode that roller-coaster, didn't get too high, didn't get too low. “We're in the playoffs, and that's all that matters.” The blowout win over Moore (1-9, 0-7) isn't the only sign of Mustang's turnaround. In fact, it's probably the least significant. Following the Southmoore defeat, Mustang beat Owasso in a must-win game. Last week in sloppy conditions, the Broncos went to the wire at No. 1 Tulsa Union. They were inside the Union 20, throwing to the end zone for a potential game-tying touchdown when time ran out. “We finally found the right mix of guys up front. We simplified some things offensively, and by controlling the ball the last few weeks, it's helped our defense out,” Mustang coach Jeremy Dombek said. “We're playing our best football of the year right now, no doubt about it.” Mustang's midseason slump was unexpected, and the resurgence was equally so. Yet the Broncos head into the playoffs boosted by a renewed confidence with next week's trip to Broken Arrow looming. “It's gonna be a fight,” said junior defensive back Carter Rees, who intercepted two passes Thursday night, returning one for a touchdown. “We have to get in there, study film, have hard practices and get ready for a fight.”

Moore to honor Corey Ivy, Matt Anderson, Mike Strimple
Jacob Unruh | Nov 5, 2015One of the most successful football periods for Moore High School will be honored throughout the day Thursday. Former players Matt Anderson, Corey Ivy and Mike Strimple will all be inducted to the school’s Wall of Fame following the first quarter of Thursday’s game against Mustang. Ivy will also present a commemorative Wilson Gold Football to the school in an assembly as part of the NFL’s 50th Super Bowl celebration recognizing schools and communities that contributed to Super Bowl history and positively impacted the game. Ivy helped helped Tampa Bay win Super Bowl XXXVII after playing at Oklahoma. Anderson was a member of the Sooners’ 2000 national championship team. All three players played for former coach Tom Noles and were instrumental in Moore’s 11-year run of 102 wins and five state semifinal appearances. The Lions also beat rival Westmoore 11 straight times.

Haws, a senior linebacker, has been hospitalized since Friday night when he broke three vertebrae in his neck and back during a football game at Blanchard. The injury required emergency surgery at the OU Medicine trauma center in Oklahoma City.
High school notebook: Bethany's Hudson Haws shows more improvement Monday
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Staff Writers | Oct 26, 2015Injured Bethany football player Hudson Haws showed another significant sign of improvement on Monday when his breathing strengthened to the point that he could be taken off a ventilator. Haws, a senior linebacker, has been hospitalized since Friday night when he broke three vertebrae in his neck and back during a football game at Blanchard. The injury required emergency surgery at the OU Medicine trauma center in Oklahoma City. He still has no feeling or movement below his chest, but his arm strength has improved in the last couple of days. Being taken off the breathing machine is a major step. As the swelling in his spinal cord continues to recede, it will become easier for doctors to determine the extent of the injury to his spinal cord. LAWTON MAC'S FIAILOA INVITED TO POLYNESIAN ALL-AMERICAN BOWL Lawton MacArthur offensive lineman T.J. Fiailoa was invited to play in the annual Polynesian All-American Bowl game. The game is scheduled for Jan. 9, 2016, at Oceanside High School in Oceanside, Calif. Fiailoa said he has not accepted the invitation yet. “It means a lot,” Fiailoa said. “My family is proud, and I'm just humbled to be recognized. It's not one of those big bowls like Under Armour, but as a Samoan it means a lot.” Fiailoa is one of the top offensive linemen in the state. He holds scholarship offers from Arkansas State, North Texas, Stephen F. Austin and Utah State. He's ranked No. 27 on The Oklahoman's Super 30 rankings of the state's top college recruits for the 2016 class. The event is sponsored by the Aiga Foundation, a nonprofit organization that, according to its website, assists student-athletes from across the mainland United States, Hawaii and American Samoa in acquiring football athletic scholarships. Aiga means “family” in the Samoan language. RECORD CHASE UPDATE It's rare to have one quarterback challenge a state record, but this season two quarterbacks are chasing former Atoka star L.T. Pfaff's record of 11,357 career passing yards. On Friday, that mark was eclipsed by Locust Grove's Mason Fine, who threw for 457 yards to bring his career total to 11,658 yards. He also holds the career mark for touchdowns. Next up is Victory Christian's Keats Calhoon, who sits 342 yards away from Pfaff's mark. Each week, The Oklahoman will update the chase between Fine and Calhoon. Mason Fine, Locust Grove Total entering week: 11,201 This week: 457 Career total: 11,658 Yards past record: 301 Keats Calhoon, Victory Christian Total entering week: 10,672 This week: 343 Career total: 11,015 Yards to Pfaff: 342 BRAD DALKE NAMED ALL-AMERICAN FOR FIFTH TIME Though he's been in college for two months now, Brad Dalke added one more record to his decorated junior golf career on Monday. The Oklahoma freshman and Hobart native was selected a first-team Rolex Junior All-American on Monday, his fifth time to receive the honor. He's the first player ever to be a first-team selection five times. Dalke concluded his illustrious high school career by winning the Junior PGA Championship in August. He already has a top-10 finish and a stroke average of 72.4 through four college tournaments. Edmond North's Austin Eckroat and Norman's Yujeong Son were second-team All-American selections. SOFTBALL ALL-DISTRICT 6A-2 TEAM ANNOUNCED The All-District team for District 6A-2 was recently announced with Putnam City standout Alexis Perry taking home the top honor of Player of the Year. Perry is verbally committed to Nebraska. Putnam City North's Stephanie Giggers was named Pitcher of the Year.

First-year Mustang coach Jamie Roberts was named the Coach of the Year after leading Mustang to the Class 6A state tournament. Here is a full breakdown of the team: Player of the Year: Alexis Perry, Putnam City Pitcher of the Year: Stephanier Giggers, Putnam North Offensive Player of the Year: Mackenzie Donihoo, Mustang Defensive Player of the Year: Sydnee Ramsey, Westmoore Coach of the Year: Jamie Roberts, Mustang FIRST TEAM Pitcher: Kylie Dodson, Mustang; Makayla Jackson, Putnam City; Mckenzie Smith, Westmoore Catcher: Madison Perrigan, Mustang; Hannah Salmon, Putnam City First base: Julie Minter, Edmond North Second base: Josie Tofpi, Westmoore Third base: Alexus Bailey, Putnam North Shortstop: Caleigh Stevenson, Midwest City Outfield: Mason Andrews, Westmoore; Taunna Jefferies, Midwest City; Lorren Kromer, Putnam North Utility: Brookyln Sparkman, Mustang; Ashtyn Crouch, Edmond North; Kennedy Thomas, Edmond North; Coren Davis, Edmond Memorial; Kendall Murphy, Edmond Memoriall Ashlynn Williams, Midwest City HONORABLE MENTION Mustang: Lexi Vargas, Zoe Jones, Audrie Morrison Putnam North: Caroline Hamblin, Kelsie Villabos, Meridee Lawson Westmoore: Alanna Leisy, Erycka Pierce, Bailey Gilliam Edmond Memorial: Crimson Davis, Karsen Heron Edmond North: Kamri Heath, Amy Crabaugh, Katlyn Jones, Jillian Helsley Putnam City: Danielle Stover, Jessica Holt, Sara Price Midwest City: Kylie McCoy, Kierra Williams, Maddi Thompson U.S. Grant: Lexi Merino
Running backs Terran Daniel and AaRon Kinchion combined for 144 yards and two touchdowns on the ground as the Broncos hung on for a 21-14 win at Bronco Stadium.
High school football: Mustang ground game is the difference as Broncos upend Owasso
By Murray Evans, For The Oklahoman | Oct 23, 2015MUSTANG — Knowing they desperately needed a win to stay in the Class 6A-I playoff hunt, the Mustang Broncos — usually known for their pass-heavy offense — threw Owasso a curve on Friday night, grinding it out between the tackles. The unusual — well, for Mustang at least — strategy worked. Running backs Terran Daniel and AaRon Kinchion combined for 144 yards and two touchdowns on the ground as the Broncos hung on for a 21-14 win at Bronco Stadium. The win didn't clinch a playoff spot for Mustang (6-2, 3-2 6A-I-2), which faces a game at No. 1 Tulsa Union next week. But a loss to Owasso (3-4, 2-3) would have effectively knocked out the Broncos, who entered the game on a two-game skid, having lost to Norman North and Southmoore the past two weeks. “Every week is a playoff game for us,” Mustang coach Jeremy Dombek said. “But we like where we're at. We're 6-2. A lot of people would like to be in our position.” Dombek said the Broncos made a commitment to the run game during practice this week, and it paid off. “We want to run the football,” he said. “We want to be physical and play defense. We've kind of sold out to it this week a little bit. It wasn't really anything that Owasso presented to us, because they were great up front. … We had a plan. The offensive coaches did a great job, and our kids executed it.” Mustang turned two third-quarter fumbles by the Rams into two touchdowns, which proved to be the difference. The first one came as Owasso appeared poised to break a 7-7 tie, having reached the Mustang 5 when receiver Jaylen Johnson fumbled and Kaden Truelove recovered for the Broncos at the 3. Mustang marched 97 yards, with Daniel scoring on a 10-yard run. Both teams then went three-and-out, but Owasso's Athanie Leeviraphan muffed Mustang's punt at his own 37 and Ping Harris recovered for the Broncos. Daniel, who had 16 carries for 65 yards, scored on a 3-yard run to put Mustang up 21-7. Daultoon Esmeyer broke free for a 56-yard touchdown run with 11:12 left to pull the Rams within 21-14, but they didn't cross midfield on any of their final three possessions, although with an asterisk. Quarterback Troy Hudson scrambled for 55 yards to the Mustang 13 in the final minutes, but the play was wiped out due to offsetting penalties — an illegal block on Owasso and a face mask on Mustang. Darion Richards' interception of a pass by Hudson with 1:11 left sealed the win for Mustang, which had two touchdowns in the fourth quarter called back due to penalty. Mustang had more than twice as many rushing plays (56) as passing plays (24). Kinchion led the Broncos with 17 carries for 79 yards and added a team-high five catches for 51 yards. “The holes were huge,” Kinchion said. “The O-line did great. The big holes were there and it made our job easy.” The second-half kickoff was delayed by about 10 minutes after an unidentified Owasso player collapsed in the locker room and was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital. Dombeck said Owasso coach Bill Patterson told him the player's vital signs were good, even though the player was unresponsive.

The American Conference — the beleaguered, forgotten, left-for-dead American — is the big winner so far among leagues in the 2015 college football season. The American has three of the nation’s 14 unbeatens remaining. All three are ranked in the AP top 25 — Memphis 18th, Houston 21st and Temple 22nd. And below those three, Navy is off to a 4-1 start, and East Carolina and Cincinnati have had...
College football predictions: The American Conference riding high
Berry Tramel | Oct 22, 2015[img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]3889790[/img] The American Conference — the beleaguered, forgotten, left-for-dead American — is the big winner so far among leagues in the 2015 college football season. The American has three of the nation’s 14 unbeatens remaining. All three are ranked in the AP top 25 — Memphis 18th, Houston 21st and Temple 22nd. And below those three, Navy is off to a 4-1 start, and East Carolina and Cincinnati have had notable victories. Memphis beat Ole Miss last week. Temple beat Penn State. East Carolina beat Virginia Tech. Cincinnati beat Miami. The American is a respectable 7-14 against Power 5 conference teams plus Notre Dame and Brigham Young. That’s better than the ACC, which is a horrid 4-10 against that caliber of competition. The American is 4-3 straight up against the ACC. The updated standings, of Power-5 (plus Notre Dame and BYU) against each other: SEC 5-2, Independents 5-3, Big Ten 10-9, Pac-12 5-5, Big 12 4-4, ACC 4-10. Add in the American, and the standings are: SEC 8-3, Independents 8-3, Big 12 7-5, Pac-12 6-5, Big Ten 11-10, American 7-14, ACC 7-14. The strong showing by the American makes it likely that its champion will get the major bowl berth afforded to the Group of Five conferences without an automatic berth. It’s even conceivable that Memphis, if it can win out, could at least demand consideration for a national semifinal berth. At 13-0, with wins over Ole Miss, Houston, Cincinnati, Temple, Navy and whoever represents the American East in the conference title game, Memphis would at least have an argument. Let’s get to the predictions: Texas Tech at Oklahoma: Sooners 48-35. Red Raiders have played well in two straight trips to Owen Field, a 41-38 upset win in 2011, a 38-30 loss in 2013. Kansas at Oklahoma State: Cowboys 42-10. Jayhawks showed some life against Texas Tech last week, drawing within 23-20 late. Kansas State at Texas: Wildcats 23-19. Big 12 upset special.K-State historically has played great against the Longhorns, but can the ‘Cats recover from a 55-0 beatdown by OU last week? Iowa State at Baylor: Bears 69-14. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to see Baylor in a real road game. Tennessee at Alabama: Crimson Tide 28-16. The Volunteers can physically match up with Bama, which is a big improvement. Texas A&M at Ole Miss: Aggies 29-27. Don’t look now, but the Rebels haven’t played well since beating Alabama. Struggled with Vanderbilt, lost to Florida and Memphis. Western Kentucky at LSU: Tigers 45-27. Don’t sleep on the Hilltoppers. They’re not bad, at 6-1 and averaging 51 points a game. Missouri at Vanderbilt: Tigers 19-6. Sleepy season for Mizzou. In a bad way. Kentucky at Mississippi State: Bulldogs 23-20. Mark Stoops has lost two conference heartbreaks, to Florida and Auburn; otherwise, UK might be the East Division favorite. Auburn at Arkansas: Razorbacks 26-17. Gus Malzahn returns to his roots, when he was head coach of high-flying Springdale High School, just down the road from Fayetteville. Northwestern at Nebraska: Cornhuskers 21-14. Nebraska just scrambling to make a bowl game, but the Wildcats have slumped, too. Wisconsin at Illinois: Badgers 26-14. Wisconsin needs help to win the Big Ten West. Notably, two losses by Iowa, which has an easy schedule. Ohio State at Rutgers: Buckeyes 41-14. Urban Meyer does funny things with his quarterbacks. Indiana at Michigan State: Spartans 49-24. Awful loss for IU and Kevin Wilson last week. Gave up 24 straight points in the final 18 minutes and lost to Rutgers 55-52. That’s no way to make a bowl game. Penn State at Maryland: Nittany Lions 25-10. Old Eastern rivalry, which doesn’t resonate much in the Big Ten. California at UCLA: Bruins 38-31. If UCLA is going to salvage its season, it has to start here. Utah at Southern Cal: Utes 34-17. Can you believe that USC is favored? Pay attention people. Pay attention. Washington at Stanford: Cardinal 27-17. Someone better beat Stanford and Utah soon, else both Pac-12 divisional races will be over before November. Colorado at Oregon State: Buffaloes 36-23. Glory, glory hallelujah. Colorado is not the worst team in the Pac-12. Washington State at Arizona: Wildcats 42-35. Mike Leach has the Cougars playing well. Rich Rodriguez can’t say the same about UofA. Florida State at Georgia Tech: Seminoles 26-10. Unbeaten ‘Noles have two road games after this — at Clemson, at Florida. Virginia at North Carolina: Tar Heels 33-14. Is UNC the worst one-loss team among the Power-5? Let’s see. Duke, Pitt, OU, Notre Dame, Stanford, Cal, Florida, Alabama, Texas A&M. I’ll vote for the Tar Heels. Duke at Virginia Tech: Blue Devils 30-14. You know, that David Cutcliffe might have a future in this business. Clemson at Miami: Hurricanes 27-21. Upset special. Miami has some talent, it just hasn’t produced a complete game. Could happen against the Tigers. North Carolina State at Wake Forest: Wolfpack 26-22. Wonder if this is any kind of in-state rivalry at all? Boston College at Louisville: Cardinals 20-10. The greatest argument against expansion to 14-team conferences is games like this and NC State-Wake. Pittsburgh at Syracuse: Panthers 22-14. Pitt is quietly having a solid season. Wagner at Brigham Young: Cougars 78-0. I’ll cut BYU some slack, since it has all kinds of scheduling problems. But Wagner is the team that lost to Columbia two weeks ago, ending the Lions’ 24-game losing streak. Connecticut at Cincinnati: Bearcats 41-14. How good is the American? Cincy is a solid team. Beat Miami. And UC is 0-2 in the American. Memphis at Tulsa: Tigers 51-21. Justin Fuente makes his return to Tulsa. You’d think Fuente could make some recruiting inroads at Union High School. Houston at Central Florida: Cougars 48-14. Two programs going in opposite directions quite rapidly. SMU at South Florida: Bulls 46-24. Mustangs’ only victory came against North Texas, and Dan McCarney now is out of a job at UNT. Temple at East Carolina: Pirates 33-24. Game could decide the American’s East Division. Tulane at Navy: Midshipmen 41-20. The eternal question. Why can Navy win and Army can’t? Utah State at San Diego State: Aggies 37-31. Great win for Sallisaw’s Matt Wells and his offensive coordinator, Josh Heupel, last week in routing Boise State. Fresno State at Air Force: Falcons 28-26. The truth about the Mountain West Conference this season; there are no standout teams. Hawaii at Nevada: Rainbows 25-23. Hawaii has won just once on the Mainland since October 2011. New Mexico at San Jose State: Spartans 28-20. I sometimes forget that Bob Davie still coaches the Lobos. Wyoming at Boise State: Broncos 63-7. Boise State will be plenty mad after melting down against Utah State. Last week: 28-12. Season: 289-74.

High school notebook: Norman North's Lindy Waters no longer with team
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Staff Writers | Oct 19, 2015Highly recruited Norman North boys basketball player Lindy Waters III will no longer be attending the school. Waters, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, enrolled at Sunrise Christian Academy in Wichita, Kan., on Monday amid a disciplinary situation at his former school. Norman Public Schools officials could not confirm whether Waters left the school on his own, or if he had been suspended or dismissed. “We are not able to comment on any student's attendance status,” Alesha Leemaster, the district's director of public relations, told The Oklahoman. Waters gathered scholarship offers from a wide variety of schools over the summer, including Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Butler, Houston, Iowa State, Cincinnati, Clemson, Mercer and several others. He also has multiple opportunities at Ivy League programs. IDABEL'S WELLS COMMITS TO WYOMING One of the state's top football prospects is off the board. Idabel's K.J. Wells verbally committed to Wyoming on Sunday, announcing his decision on his Twitter page. “Well it's official! I verbally committed to the university of Wyoming this morning,” he tweeted while on an official visit with the school. Wells is ranked No. 8 on The Oklahoman's Super 30 list of the state's top recruits for the 2016 class. He is being recruited as an athlete. He's played receiver and most recently quarterback for Idabel. Last season, he accounted for 27 touchdowns — 12 passing, 12 rushing and three receiving. Wells chose Wyoming over scholarship offers from Houston, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Oklahoma State, Sam Houston State, TCU and UTEP. Wyoming has now landed four Oklahomans from the 2016 class. Wells joins Mustang quarterback Chandler Garrett, Ada linebacker Shiloh Windsor and Hollis offensive lineman Jace Webb as verbal commitments. MILLWOOD'S MICHELBY DAVIS OFFERED BY WESTERN ILLINOIS Millwood defensive end Michelby Davis received his first Division I scholarship offer on Monday, from Western Illinois. Davis, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound senior, plays a variety of roles for Millwood, including defensive end, tight end, wide receiver and kicker. UT-San Antonio, coached by Oklahoma native Larry Coker, has also been in to see him practice recently as well. LAWTON MAC SURVIVES TOUGH STRETCH Top-ranked Lawton MacArthur's comeback victory over No. 2 Ardmore was not only thrilling, but crucial in the Class 5A defending champion's pursuit of the District 5A-1 title. The Highlanders' 29-28 win concluded an undefeated three-week stretch against the heart of the district with Altus, Duncan and Ardmore, which left them atop the district as the lone undefeated team. “It's hard to look forward in our district,” Lawton MacArthur coach Brett Manning said. “We haven't been able to sit down and look at all of the possibilities and scenarios. It's been murder's row there in our schedule. I know it's the old cliché of one game at a time, but it's really been that way. “I really like where we are. I think we have set ourselves up to enter the playoffs in the best possible spot we could.” Lawton MacArthur (7-0, 4-0) has district games remaining against Chickasha, Del City and El Reno. Those three are a combined 4-8 in district play. The Highlanders won their games against Altus and Ardmore by a combined total of three points. “I'm telling you, Altus and Ardmore are very, very good teams,” Manning said. “I feel like coming out of that and winning those games, I feel very fortunate to be in the position we are. “It's also gratifying because I guarantee you there's nobody in the state that thought we would be where we are right now. We've still got a long ways to go to reach our goals, but losing 19 starters like we did off of last year's team, it feels really good to have such a good start this year.” Against Ardmore, receiver Jarviear Christon caught a 31-yard touchdown pass from JR Winningham with 58 seconds remaining. Manning then elected to go for the win and sent in safety Walter Neil to run their version of the wildcat formation. Lawton MacArthur ran the formation earlier in the game with a sweep to the right. This time, Neil went left, Christon delivered a big block and Neil converted the two-point play. HASLEY, MULLIGAN TAKE OJGT TITLES Piedmont's Dustin Hasley and Norman North's Kaitlin Milligan won the Oklahoma Junior Golf Tour Tournament of Champions over the weekend. Hasley shot rounds of 70-69 for a 139 total at Lincoln Park West to edge Hydro's Kason Cook and Mooreland's Zac Owens by one shot. In the girls tournament, Milligan shot 77-72 for a six-stroke victory. Jordan Wilson of Edmond shot 75-73 to win the boys 12-14 age division by one shot.

VOTE: The Oklahoman's Fans' Choice Player of the Week poll
Jacob Unruh,scott wright | Oct 17, 2015Week 7 of the high school football season featured some clutch performances around the Oklahoma City area. Fans can now voice their opinion on who had the best performance. The weekly Fans' Choice Player of the Week poll is live online at NewsOK.com/Varsity. Pick one of the selections from the poll below, or write in your own candidate in the comments section, where you can tell us why your choice deserves Player of the Week honors. Voting ends at 4 p.m. Tuesday and the results of the poll will appear in Wednesday's print editions. Here are the candidates: Deshaun Anderson, Coyle: In a battle of unbeaten teams, Coyle looked impressive in a 62-14 rout of Deer Creek-Lamont. Anderson was a big reason why, as he rushed for 153 yards and three touchdowns. Brandon George, Jones: The junior quarterback kept his team undefeated with 315 passing yards and four touchdowns in a 27-7 win over district rival Seminole. Joseph Lemieux, Christian Heritage: Christian Heritage is on its first winning streak of the year with a 47-20 win over Wellston for a second straight win. Lemieux had a big week, carrying the ball 19 times for 174 yards and four touchdowns. Lenard Leviston III, John Marshall: After falling behind 19-7, John Marshall rallied for a big 37-19 win behind Leviston. He finished 11 of 17 for 148 yards. He also scored twice on the ground on carries of 37 and 70 yards. Rylan Redding, Yukon: In desperate need of a district win, Yukon edged Putnam City 26-22 on Redding’s 74-yard touchdown reception with 8 seconds remaining. He finished the night with 164 yards receiving. Casey Thompson, Southmoore: It’s unprecedented that a player makes the poll three times in the regular season, but the type of season Thompson is having warrants it. He accounted for six touchdowns — four rushing and two passing — in a huge 52-14 rout of Mustang. He totaled 147 yards on the ground and 184 through the air. Keith Traylor, Tuttle: The Tigers’ big running back had a banner night in a 48-24 dismantling of Ada that puts Tuttle in control of the district. He rushed for a whopping 283 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries.

The Timberwolves' first possession was nearly the only thing they did wrong the entire night.
High school football: Norman North overwhelms Edmond North, 56-0
By Jacob Unruh Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Oct 16, 2015NORMAN —Norman North football coach Brent Barnes was concerned Friday night that the Timberwolves would play with less energy following last week's big win over Mustang. Then Norman North went three-and-out on its first possession against Edmond North. “When the first possession goes three-and-out I feel like we're playing bad already, even though it's three plays,” Barnes said. That possession was nearly the only thing the Timberwolves did wrong the entire night. They racked up 49 points and 400 yards of offense in the first half to hammer Edmond North 56-0 at Harve Collins Field for a second straight District 6A-I-2 win. “From the very beginning we were ready to go,” Barnes said. “I was really proud of them for getting that message and playing like they did from the start.” The Timberwolves (5-2, 2-2) benefitted from recovering two onside kicks in the first half. Each recovery set up a touchdown drive. Barnes said the goal of the onside kicks is to put pressure on the other team to cleanly field the kick while also to gain control of the game. “That gave us a lot of momentum,” Barnes said. “When it goes like that, our guys are having a lot of fun with it and they're trying to talk us into all kinds of crazy stuff at that point. We'll listen sometimes. When it goes that way it's great because it gives you some momentum, guys are having fun and they're making plays.” Senior running back Quan Hogan rushed for 103 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries. He scored on runs of 2, 3 and 1 yards from the wildcat formation. Quarterback Cameron Hardesty was also spectacular. He completed 16 of his 23 passes for 284 yards and four touchdowns. Two of his touchdown passes went to Charlie Kolar, including one with 10 seconds remaining in the first half one play after Edmond North's Noah Tews fumbled on a run instead of kneeling to end the half. None of Norman North's offensive starters played in the second half, but the team still finished with 551 yards of offense. Edmond North (3-4, 2-2) was limited to 47 yards in the first half and 105 yards overall. “I feel like it's a great win, especially going in district and trying to get to the playoffs,” said Norman North defensive lineman Corey Tipsword, who had two sacks. “I feel like my team did very, very good, especially the defense. Our offense is racking up the points, and I love that.”

After giving up a touchdown on the opening drive of the game, Southmoore’s defense closed the door on a powerful Mustang team, and the offense put on another SaberCat show in a 52-14 rout of the seventh-ranked Broncos on Thursday night at Moore Stadium.
High school football: Southmoore defense stifles Mustang in rout
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Oct 15, 2015MOORE — Noah Jones enjoyed all the positive publicity the Southmoore offense had been getting this season, but the senior wanted to get a little bit of love for the defense, too. Consider it done. After giving up a touchdown on the opening drive of the game, Southmoore's defense closed the door on a powerful Mustang team, and the offense put on another SaberCat show in a 52-14 rout of the seventh-ranked Broncos on Thursday night at Moore Stadium. No. 4 Southmoore held Mustang to 340 yards, and the 14 points was almost 28 shy of the Broncos' season average before Thursday. “On defense, we hadn't been playing as well as we wanted to,” said Jones, a defensive end who is verbally committed to Texas Tech. “We've had the offense carrying us for a while, and we thought we needed to go do something this week. “After that first drive, we picked it up.” Sophomore quarterback Casey Thompson turned in another stellar performance, rushing for 147 yards and four touchdowns — including two of more than 50 yards — while throwing for 184 yards and two scores. Running back Darrian Moss rushed for 189 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries, giving the offense its first big boost with a 55-yard TD on his first rushing attempt. “The offense and defense really feed off each other,” Moss said. “When they produce, it helps us on offense, and we produce, it helps them.” That back-and-forth between the offense and defense got the snowball rolling quickly Thursday night, and soon there was nothing Mustang could do to stop it. The Broncos (5-2, 2-2) held a 7-0 lead less than three minutes into the game, but one minute into the fourth quarter, Southmore led 52-7. Mustang's second straight loss puts it in a desperate playoff situation, likely needing a win over Owasso next week or outside help to get into the postseason. The win puts Southmoore (6-1, 3-1) in good position for a home playoff game as the No. 2 seed in District 6A-I-2, with Tulsa Union the clear favorite for the district title. With Edmond North, Putnam City North and Norman North remaining on the schedule, the SaberCats control their future. “We know where we're able of positioning ourselves,” Southmoore coach Jeremy Stark said. “If we take care of business each week, yes, we could end up second in the district with a home playoff game, which is big. “But we're just focusing on ourselves, and we'll see where it's at after Week 10.”

As Week 7 of the high school football season arrives, playoff races — and more importantly, the chase for district championships — start to take shape. We've got a No. 1 vs. No. 2 battle in Class 6A-II, with second-ranked Bartlesville visiting Tulsa Washington on Friday.

The Oklahoman's high school football predictions for Week 7
By Scott Wright Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Oct 14, 2015As Week 7 of the high school football season arrives, playoff races — and more importantly, the chase for district championships — start to take shape. We've got a No. 1 vs. No. 2 battle in Class 6A-II, with second-ranked Bartlesville visiting Tulsa Washington on Friday. And a 1 vs. 3 in Class 5A, with top-ranked Lawton MacArthur hosting Ardmore, also on Friday. But Thursday is full of excitement, too, with Cushing at Heritage Hall in a rematch of the Class 3A title game, and two of the west's best 6A-I teams in doing battle with potentially big playoff stakes on the line when Southmoore hosts Mustang. Each week, The Oklahoman's Scott Wright predicts the score of every game in the state. Here are the Week 7 picks: Last week's record: 142-31 (82.1 pct.) Overall record: 835-218 (79.3 pct.)

Grapevine football players learn from cancer survivor
Marty Sabota, Associated Press | Oct 13, 2015Each October, thousands of pro, college and high school football players add pink to their uniforms in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The members of the Grapevine Mustangs squad got a firsthand account of the struggles of those with cancer from former WFAA-TV anchor/reporter Janet St. James. The Grapevine football team has a team motto of TPW, which stands for Tough People Win. To tell us what she went through was inspiring. She is a tough woman. Grapevine football player Brandon Coffin on cancer survivor Janet St. James St. James was brought in to speak to them about how that motto exemplifies that attitude.“It has taken a lot of mental toughness, just like your coaches tell you,” St. James told them. “I am strong and I am fierce. Those are the words I live by.” St. James was diagnosed with breast cancer on April 1, shortly after leaving the TV news business to go to work for HCA North Texas as vice president of strategic communication. Mustangs head coach Randy Jackson invited St. James to speak to his team so they would know that there are real cancer victims behind the pink mouth guards, shoelaces and towels the team adds to its uniform during October. “When you wear pink, think of the women and men like me and their families who are going through this,” St. James told the players. Grapevine football coach Randy Jackson invited Janet St. James to speak to his team so they would know that there are real cancer victims behind the pink mouth guards, shoelaces and towels the team adds to its uniform during October. St. James talked about her bilateral mastectomy and months of chemo and radiation therapy. She still faces several surgeries. She said cancer is hard on families. “Cancer is tough for parents to talk about with kids, but it has to be done,” she said. She was overwhelmed by how the approximately 100 high school boys gave her their “undivided attention.” “It made me feel really good,” the Grapevine resident said. St. James enjoyed visiting the school, especially because two of her children are students there. Her third child attends Colleyville Middle School. The visit made an impact on the players. Senior wide receiver Brandon Coffin appreciated the message from St. James, saying, “To tell us what she went through was inspiring. She is a tough woman. It was great.” Junior offensive lineman Robert Ryan added, “It was inspiring how she stayed positive during her fight. My mom had breast cancer, so this is very real. She’s been cancer-free for four years. It reminded me what this is all about.” Marty Sabota, 817-390-7367 ——— ©2015 the Fort Worth Star-Telegram Visit the Fort Worth Star-Telegram at www.star-telegram.com Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC. _____ Topics: t000002832,t000002828,t000002827,t000412858

VOTE: Week 6 Fans' Choice Player of the Week poll
Jacob Unruh,scott wright | Oct 10, 2015Week 6 of the high school football season featured some eye-popping performances around the Oklahoma City area. Fans can now voice their opinion on who had the best performance. The weekly Fans' Choice Player of the Week poll is live online at NewsOK.com/Varsity. Pick one of the selections from the poll below, or write in your own candidate in the comments section, where you can tell us why your choice deserves Player of the Week honors. Voting ends at 4 p.m. Tuesday and the results of the poll will appear in Wednesday's print editions. Here are the candidates: Rhett Boles, Tuttle: Without starting running back Jason Biddy, Tuttle’s quarterback shouldered the load in a 28-27 win over Harrah that included a rally from a 21-point deficit and blocked field goal as time expired. Boles carried the ball 35 times for 265 yards and four scores, along with scoring the go-ahead two-point conversion on a run. Dreyvon Christon, Putnam City: Christon had quite the performance at receiver in Putnam City’s much-needed 31-30 upset of Edmond Memorial. Christon has seven catches for 79 yards and two touchdowns — both of which came in the fourth quarter. Christon also threw an 80-yard TD pass in the first quarter to tie the game at 7. Josh Hampton, Cashion: Hampton caught 13 passes for 267 yards and four touchdowns as Cashion’s offense exploded in a 50-22 rout of Perry. He scored on passes ofr 13, 53, 59 and 38 yards. Quan Hogan, Norman North: The talented running back had his best performance to date in Norman North’s 49-34 upset of Mustang. He carried the ball 33 times for 213 yards and six touchdowns. Kevin Rassatt, Western Heights: In perhaps Western Heights’ biggest win in years, Rassatt was electric at quarterback in leading the Jets to a 26-23 upset of powerful Deer Creek. He accounted for 436 yards of offense and four touchdowns. He rushed for 147 yards, scoring three times. He also completed 22 of 28 passes for 289 yards and a TD. J.T. Wullschleger, Edmond Santa Fe: The receiver had a breakout performance in the Wolves’ 41-11 rout of Yukon, catching six passes for 207 yards and three touchdowns — all in the first half.

High school football: Quan Hogan, Norman North overpower Mustang
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Oct 9, 2015MUSTANG — All week, Norman North coach Brent Barnes told his players that they had not yet played their best game. He'll have to come up with a new motivational tactic for next week. Behind running back Quan Hogan's 213-yard, six-touchdown performance, Norman North's offense overpowered No. 3 Mustang, and its defense was equally punishing in a 49-34 upset Friday night at Bronco Stadium. “We've played some good quarters, and even some good halves,” Barnes said. “But we hadn't played four quarters of really good football before tonight. “That's a great program we played tonight. Great players, great coaches. I'm really proud of our guys.” Coming off back-to-back losses to Owasso and Tulsa Union, seventh-ranked Norman North (4-2 overall, 1-2 District 6A-I-2) needed the win to keep its playoff hopes out of desperation mode. And North needed the good vibes, too. “We needed this bad,” said Hogan, the 6-foot-1, 220-pound senior who ran with authority on all of his 33 carries. “Coach Barnes kept asking us when we were gonna play our best game. Tonight, we just got fired up, went 100 and did the best we could. “The offensive line was incredible. I had a lot of running room. Everything was just perfect.” Hogan's rushing opened up the passing game as well. Norman North completed all seven second-half passes it attempted. Cameron Hardesty was 12-of-20 for 223 yards for the game. Mustang's usually potent offense came alive late to try and make things interesting, but Norman North still limited the Broncos to just 322 yards. Quarterback Chandler Garrett, who is verbally committed to Wyoming, was 14-of-29 for 253 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. “We knew we had to put pressure on Garrett,” Barnes said. “If we sat back, he'd pick us apart. If he has time to find guys, he's gonna do it. “To be able to manage that for at least 31/2 quarters was really big.” With Edmond North, Putnam City North and Moore on the schedule the next three weeks, Norman North has a chance to pile up some wins. Mustang (5-1, 2-1), on the other hand, must prepare for a trip to Southmoore next week after struggling to its first loss of the year. “We had a favorable schedule the first five games,” Mustang coach Jeremy Dombek said. “We came across a good football team and we didn't pass the test.”

High school sports: Prayer policy not discussed at OSSAA meeting
By Jacob Unruh Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Oct 8, 2015The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors held their monthly meeting Wednesday, and they did not discuss the scrutinized prayer policy. OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley also declined to comment following the meeting. Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt said Tuesday that prayer before high school sporting events can be done legally in his opinion in response to a legislator's complaint about the school prayer ban. The OSSAA's policy prohibits publicly recited prayers at playoff games and championship events. It was adopted in 1992 and revised in June to comply with a 2000 U.S. Supreme Court decision. The OSSAA is not required to follow Pruitt's opinion and said in a statement Tuesday that the policy will remain in effect while the opinion is reviewed. UPDATE ON CAPITOL HILL Oklahoma City Public Schools athletic director Keith Sinor said Wednesday that he hopes both U.S. Grant and Capitol Hill football programs are back in district play in two years. Sinor delivered an update on the school's progress as part of an agreement with the OSSAA to allow U.S. Grant and Capitol Hill to not compete for four years in district play while rebuilding the program. “It is early, but with the numbers we've had coming out, with the successes we've had at the middle school level, the excitement around the community, our hope is that we'll be back playing at the end of this proposal,” Sinor said. “That's our hope.” He talked for 15 minutes before both Capitol Hill coach James Whitley and U.S. Grant coach Andy Chishko spoke. Both coaches and Sinor said injuries have decreased. Sinor said there has been an increase of participation at the middle school level and for both high school teams, but retention still remains an issue. He said OKCPS' two-week fall break has hindered the progress at times. Some players on each team do not return to the team following the break from school. Sinor also said the programs still struggle to fill a full schedule, but have been playing small schools and junior varsity teams. U.S. Grant and Capitol Hill also have new coaches this season for a third straight season. SWIMMING STATE TO JENKS The swimming state championships are heading east. The OSSAA board of directors unanimously approved the Jenks Aquatic Center as the host for the Class 5A and Class 6A meet on Feb. 19 and Feb. 20. The meet was held at the Edmond Aquatic Center the past two years. Before that, Jenks hosted the previous two years. Jenks also hosts the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State swim meet each summer. SOCCER DISTRICTS AMENDED The OSSAA amended soccer districts for the next two seasons Wednesday in an effort to balance out the districts. The OSSAA had to move three Class 6A teams on the west side of the state to an east district. Deer Creek, Putnam North and Westmoore are all headed to that district. Mustang had been recommended for the district by coaches.

It’s been a difficult but rewarding journey from sickness to the football spotlight, and Blake Williams can’t even tell you the whole story. Because he can’t remember all of it.
Journey of Mustang's Blake Williams from sickness to stardom under Friday night lights
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Oct 8, 2015MUSTANG — Tammy Gosnell-Williams' phone rang on the morning of Aug. 13, 2013. It was a worker at Mustang High School, calling to find out why Tammy's son wasn't in class on the first day of school. “Is Blake not coming to school today?” the woman on the phone asked. Tammy started to cry. “No,” she said. “We're at the Mayo Clinic right now. Blake won't be in school this year.” That morning in Rochester, Minn., Tammy had no idea what was wrong with her son. He had been sick for more than a year, and was still getting worse. His vision was failing. He'd become nauseated for no reason. The weakness and pain in his legs made it difficult for him to walk from his bed to the bathroom. But within a few days at the Mayo Clinic, Blake Williams had a diagnosis. Two months later, he was receiving treatment. And 23 months after that — last Saturday, to be exact — Blake was standing on the sidelines at Owen Field in Norman, shaking hands with Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops as one of the most intriguing recruiting prospects the Sooners had on hand for their 44-24 win over West Virginia. Now a senior at Mustang, the 6-foot-4, 230-pound tight end has a scholarship offer from North Carolina. He got a personal invitation to a camp at Alabama. He's regularly hearing from both programs, along with OU, OSU, Indiana and Arkansas. He'll be on the field Friday night when No. 3 Mustang hosts No. 7 Norman North in a critical District 6A-I-2 matchup. It's been a difficult but rewarding journey from sickness to the football spotlight, and Blake Williams can't even tell you the whole story. Because he can't remember all of it. ‘IT'S LIKE I WAS IN A COMA' Countless frustrating doctors' visits with no results had the family feeling desperate. Blake's grandfather had received a life-saving cancer diagnosis at the Mayo Clinic, so they decided that should be their next move. That's where Blake was diagnosed with dysautonomia, or autonomic dysfunction. It's a rare disease that disrupts the automatic functions of the body's nervous system caused by improper blood flow. Symptoms can include high or low blood pressure, fast or slow heart rate, fatigue, nausea, impaired vision, gastrointestinal difficulties, dizziness, anxiety and migraines. Blake experienced most of those, and one more: memory loss. “There's about a six-month gap that I don't really remember what I was going through,” Blake said. “I hardly got out of bed for that six months. “It's like I was in a coma. All I wanted to do was sleep all the time, and I was in a bad state of depression.” The cause of Blake's dysautonomia was ultimately traced back to a shoulder injury he suffered playing baseball in eighth grade during the spring of 2011. The injury caused scar tissue to develop between his shoulder and ribcage, limiting blood flow through his jugular vein. A year-and-a-half after he had begun feeling sick, Blake finally knew what he had. But the Mayo Clinic offered no treatment for dysautonomia, which is largely viewed in the medical world as incurable — the symptoms can be treated, but not the disease. Once back in Oklahoma, the family started researching dysautonomia, and found three doctors who performed a treatment known as Transvascular Autonomic Modulation, or TVAM. One of them was in California, another was in Italy. The third was in New York, but he was only testing the procedure on animals. By November 2013, Blake was in Newport Beach, Calif., meeting with Dr. Michael Arata, who would perform the procedure. Afterward, Blake started seeing almost instant improvement. His face, which had gradually turned pale, began to regain its color before he left the recovery room. The moment he walked out of the hospital, he noticed the grass and trees around him. “It was all so bright and green,” he said. “I saw four birds that were all different colors. Before, it was like I was going colorblind, but this brought color back to my life.” Soon, thoughts were moving clearly through his mind again where there had once been a fog. The pain in his legs when he walked was gone. His life was coming back. Next, he wanted football back. ON THE RECRUITING TRAIL Blake had missed the entire 2013-14 school year, so in August of 2014, which should have been the start of his senior year, he was still classified as a junior. At that point, he was feeling the best he'd felt in years, and thought he was ready for football. But he started to decline again. He got to play about a half-dozen snaps against Yukon in the season-opener, but never saw the field again. He remained part of the team, and was healthy enough to stay in school. In April of this year, his family got connected with Dr. Kevyn Kennedy in Oklahoma City, a naturopathic allergy treatment specialist. She reinforced the importance of the paleo diet Dr. Arata had recommended, and put Blake on allergy treatments. His body responded and got back on track. He couldn't make it through spring football practice, but regained his strength in early June. “It's amazing the turnaround we've seen in just a few short months,” Mustang coach Jeremy Dombek said. “He knows more than anybody how his body feels, but just being here consistently and going through the things we ask him to do is a major turnaround.” Blake took part in summer workouts and 7-on-7 camps with his team. And he got invited to a college camp at North Carolina. Former OU running back Seth Littrell, who has coached at Texas Tech, Arizona, Indiana and now at UNC, watched Blake go one-on-one with the best cornerback and best linebacker in the camp, each a four-star recruit. And Blake beat them both. Before he and his family could get back to Oklahoma, he had a scholarship offer from the Tar Heels. “Coach Littrell told us he almost didn't want to offer, because he didn't want anybody else to find out about Blake,” Tammy said. “Once he offered, he knew other colleges would start calling, and that's what happened.” Nick Saban invited Blake to a camp at Alabama. OU and OSU got involved, along with Arkansas and Indiana. “A lot of them have basically said if I hadn't had dysautonomia, they would've offered already,” Blake said. “But they want to see me make it through the season.” OU's interest seems to be getting particularly strong. Cale Gundy was on the sidelines watching him last Friday, prior to Blake's trip to Norman on Saturday. He's cut out of the prototypical H-back mold. Big enough to line up at tight end, fast enough to split out wide and go head-to-head with defensive backs. “He's that type of H-back player everybody's starting to use,” Dombek said. “He's got incredibly soft hands. His speed and athleticism and physicality — I see what they're seeing. They just want to see more of it. “He's got the offer from North Carolina, but I think there's gonna be a lot more coming.” Through five games, Blake has been one of Mustang's most reliable receivers with 17 receptions for 320 yards and four touchdowns. “We've worked him in slow,” Dombek said. “We're not asking him to play 60 plays a game, because we know it's a long year, but we want to get him involved.” His teammates are thankful to have him, too. “It's incredible what he's been through,” Mustang quarterback Chandler Garrett said. “He's gone from not being able to get through a workout to hardly ever missing any practice now. “It's been very promising and I'm proud of him.” TEARS EVERY FRIDAY Tammy cries every Friday night when Blake plays. She can't believe her boy is finally out there, playing the game he loves with the team he has longed to be a part of. “It's a dream come true,” she said. “Sometimes it felt like a dream when we were going through all this. And then, when you finally see your son out there doing normal stuff, you're like, did that really happen? Did we really go through all that? “It seems like it was a lifetime ago since Blake was well.” For Blake, game time is a time for focus, a time to compete. He doesn't think about his journey to get back on the field, or the pain he endured. But after every game, he makes his way to his truck, and sits there alone. “It's not until after the game that I truly understand how blessed I am to be able to play,” Blake said. “I sit in my truck and I pray and thank God for bringing me through the dark times that I've been in.” Through it all, Blake never contemplated a future without football. He's exactly where he believed he would be. “I always trusted in God, and I knew this is where I'm supposed to be,” he said. “I knew I was supposed to play football. I've always prayed about it and I've just always felt it. “I feel like I can tell people my testimony and how I got through this with faith, and maybe strengthen their faith when they're going through difficult times.”
