Top 10 high school football games of Week 7: Less-intriguing district matchups have suddenly become big gamesOct 12, 2014
The complexion of the high school football season changes with every week of district play, and suddenly, games that were expected to have big implications on district races suddenly don’t mean as much. At the same time, games that weren’t expected to be significantly impactful are surprisingly so. Week 7 has a lot of the second type of game.
Top 10 high school football games of Week 7: Less-intriguing district matchups have suddenly become big games
By Scott Wright | Oct 12, 2014The complexion of the high school football season changes with every week of district play, and suddenly, games that were expected to have big implications on district races suddenly don’t mean as much. At the same time, games that weren’t expected to be significantly impactful are surprisingly so. Week 7 has a lot of the second type of game. Owasso vs. Tulsa Union is always big, but no one expected it to be No. 1 vs. No. 2 at this point in the season. Tulsa Memorial vs. Skiatook? In the preseason, its implications were probably on the race for the fourth playoff spot in District 5A-2 at best. Now it’s a meeting of top 10 teams wit one loss between them. So here’s a closer look at The Oklahoman’s top 10 games of Week 7: No. 1: Owasso (6-0, 3-0) at Tulsa Union (5-1, 3-0) No. 2 visits No. 1. Owasso has had Union’s number lately, winning two of the last three regular-season meetings. How good is that Rams defense? This week should give us a clearer idea. No. 2: Lawton MacArthur (6-0, 3-0) at Ardmore (6-0, 3-0) Lawton Mac was beginning to look invincible in 5A, until two weeks ago, when Altus nearly upset the No. 1 team. Meanwhile, Ardmore has surged to No. 3 in the rankings, when the Tigers initially looked more likely to be third in their district. No. 3: Broken Arrow (4-2, 3-0) at Westmoore (5-1, 2-1) No surprise here. We knew this one would be big, and there’s likely a home playoff berth on the line for Westmoore. Broken Arrow needs to win to stay in the district title hunt. No. 4: Metro Christian (5-1, 3-0) at Fort Gibson (6-0, 3-0) Metro has looked strong since the nondistrict loss to Oklahoma Christian, but Fort Gibson has to be considered one of the bigger surprises of the season, considering the loss of their four-year starting quarterback last month. The Tigers stayed on track and will be No. 2 in the rankings this week. No. 5: Choctaw (5-1, 3-0) at Stillwater (4-2, 0-2) Stillwater has had it rough the last two weeks, with games against No. 2 Midwest City and No. 3 Lawton. Now No. 6 Choctaw, as the West side of 6A-II establishes itself as the more difficult half of the new division. No. 6: Tulsa Memorial (6-0, 3-0) at Skiatook (5-1, 2-1) Neither team was in the top 16 of The Oklahoman’s preseason poll, but have moved into the top eight now. Memorial has a couple solid wins, but the toughest portion of its schedule is still ahead. Skiatook upset No. 2 McAlester last week and nearly took down Shawnee the week before. No. 7: Cordell (6-0, 3-0) at Apache (5-0, 2-0) Apache has blown out its five opponents, as expected, but Cordell has only played one close game after beginning the year No. 30 in The Oklahoman’s preseason rankings. No. 8: Tuttle (4-2, 3-0) at Ada (5-1, 3-0) Here’s another one we expected to be a big game this week. But then Tuttle started 0-2 and it looked less intriguing. But Tuttle’s four straight wins have elevated this one again, especially with the district title implications it carries. No. 9: Southmoore (1-5, 1-2) at Mustang (5-1, 3-0) Don’t let the records fool you. Southmoore has been competitive against a one of the tougher 6A schedules. If the SaberCats want to stay in the playoff mix, a win here would be a big help. Mustang is trying to establish itself as the best team on the West side of the state. No. 10: Douglass (5-1, 2-0) at Bethany (4-1, 2-0) John Marshall is 3-0 in the district, but has yet to play either of these teams. So whoever comes out of this one will drastically help its district title hopes.

Tributes: Former Southeastern player, Douglass basketball standout die
BY SCOTT MUNN | Aug 18, 2014A farewell to people with Oklahoma ties who enjoyed the game day experience: Orb Whaley, 87, of Tulsa played football at Antlers High School and Southeastern State. Before a long management career with Western Auto, Whaley was involved in one of the most unusual plays in college football. While returning a second-half kick, Whaley was tackled by East Central lineman Doc Garner at the 50-yard line. Problem was, Garner made the stop after charging in from the ECU bench. East Central was given a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. Whaley added an interception later in the third quarter that set up a Southeastern touchdown as the then-Savages rolled to a 26-2 victory. Whaley sandwiched his football career between stints in World War II and the Korean War. Raymond Mitchell, 83, was a principal at several Oklahoma City elementary schools. The former Douglass High School basketball standout was also a physical education teacher and spent fall Friday nights as a football official. He also refereed prep basketball games.

The attorney was a supporter of Norman High School athletics; she was named Fan of the Year for the 2012-13 school year. Gene Hatfield, 67, of Oklahoma City played football and baseball at Crooked Oak High School. The Vietnam veteran was an OU and tennis fan.

Weldon Roberson, 70, of Wichita Falls, Texas, lettered four years in football, basketball and track at Ryan High School. Bob Graves, 72, of Poteau worked in the banking industry and coached Little League baseball. Steve Robinson, 65, worked the chains at Owasso Rams football games. A golf enthusiast. Bud Mulkey, 82, Durant worked as machinist — which came in handy with his hobby of building and racing stock cars. Billy Little, 68, of Yukon was a manager for Southwestern Bell.

Last season, Del City quarterback Terry Wilson won a three-way battle for the starting job as only a 15-year-old sophomore. At 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, his size, arm strength, and running ability made him one of the most talented young players in the state.

High school football: District 5A-1 preview
By Trent Shadid, Staff Writer | Jul 31, 2014Del City quarterback Terry Wilson showing progress Last season, Del City quarterback Terry Wilson won a three-way battle for the starting job as only a 15-year-old sophomore. At 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, his size, arm strength, and running ability made him one of the most talented young players in the state. After accounting for seven touchdowns over four games, Wilson’s season ended with a broken collarbone in Week 5. Since then, he’s continued to develop the mental side of his game to go along with his natural abilities. “Terry understands more about what we’re doing offensively heading into this year,” said Del City coach Nick Warehime. “He was only able to play four games last year, and he was 15-years-old. Now that he’s had the opportunity to be with us for two years and prepare over the spring and summer, he’s progressively gotten better with reading the defense and things like that.” The Eagles expect to run much of the same offense from a year ago, which will allow Wilson to use his running ability in the option-read game. Along with Wilson, Del City returns big-play threat Davion Freeman. After primarily playing cornerback and on special teams as a junior, Freeman is expected to also play receiver and in the backfield this season. BROWER TAKING OVER AT EL RENO As Wes Brower takes over as the new head coach at El Reno, he hopes to help return the once strong program to success. Since going 12-1 in 2009, El Reno has had four consecutive losing seasons. Although the program doesn’t have a state title, the Indians have finished runner-up five times and were a regular championship contender in the 1990s and 2000s. “We’re going to try to build championship football again here at El Reno,” said Brower, who was an assistant on the 1999 runner-up team at El Reno. “We we’re playing some pretty good football back then and I understand what that’s about. I feel like El Reno can produce those teams again. We’ve got some work to do, but that’s what we’re heading for.” Brower spent 13 years as the coach at Sayre before returning to El Reno as an assistant last season. CHICKASHA, DUNCAN REPLACING HALL OF FAME COACHES El Reno isn’t the only 5A-1 school with some tradition breaking in a new head coach this season. Chickasha and Duncan will also have a new face directing its program, and both are replacing Hall of Fame coaches. Chickasha has replaced Oklahoma Coaches Association Hall of Famer Tom Cobble with alum Jerry Don Bray, who has spent the past eight seasons as an assistant at the school. Bray graduated from Chickasha in 2001, and was a three-year letterman as a defensive end at Oklahoma State. Former Sallisaw coach Craig Benson is replacing Jim Holloway at Duncan. Holloway was inducted into the National High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame in 2012. THE BIG THREE In 2013, Lawton MacArthur, Del City, and Ardmore separated themselves from the rest of the district. All three went 6-1 in district games with Lawton Mac finishing six tie-breaker points ahead of Ardmore and eight ahead of Del City. While the district isn’t entirely the same, Northwest Classen and El Reno have replaced Southeast and Capitol Hill, the coaches’ preseason poll has favored the top three to remain the same. Lawton Mac was the overwhelming favorite in the poll with Ardmore second and Del City third. ALTUS RECEIVES HIGH PRAISE Despite coming off a 3-7 season Altus was selected by the coaches to earn a playoff spot as the No. 4 team in the preseason poll. “I think Altus has a chance to be really good,” said Del City coach Nick Warehime. “They had a great underclass group last season. That’s a team to watch for.” The Bulldogs do have one major hole to fill as they must replace the production of running back Taven Birdow.

Warren doesn’t want to wait three years to re-enter the Major League Baseball Draft.
High school notebook: Carl Albert's Cameron Warren heading to Seminole State instead of Oklahoma
By Jacob Unruh and Scott Wright | Jul 30, 2014Cameron Warren doesn’t want to wait three years to re-enter the Major League Baseball Draft. The former Carl Albert standout and member of The Oklahoman’s All-State and Big-All City teams said he will play baseball at Seminole State instead of Oklahoma next year. “To try and raise my draft stock and re-enter after this year,” he told The Oklahoman via Twitter. Warren hit .420 with 11 home runs and 52 RBIs last season, helping the Titans win their third straight Class 5A title. He was also 8-0 on the mound with a sparkling 1.82 ERA. Warren and teammate Gavin LaValley had both signed with the Sooners, but now neither will suit up at OU. LaValley was selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the fourth round and has already reported to the Rookie League in Arizona. Warren was selected in the 39th round by the New York Yankees, but chose not to sign. NCAA rules prohibit players from entering the MLB Draft until after their junior season. Players at junior colleges can enter each year. KINGFISHER, MERRITT RECOGNIZED BY COACHES VS. CANCER The Kingfisher football team and Merritt basketball teams were recognized by the American Cancer Society’s Coaches vs. Cancer initiative for their fundraising efforts during the 2013-14 school year. Merritt raised $16,344, more than $10,000 more than any other basketball program that took part in the effort. The Kingfisher football team raised $10,001. Schools interested in participating in Coaches vs. Cancer this year can contact Kaci Underwood at (405) 841-5814 on the west side of the state, or Marcy Beeman at (918) 477-5417 on the east side. PIEDMONT INTRODUCES BOYS BASKETBALL COACH Piedmont officially introduced new boys basketball coach Troy Lallemand last week, the Piedmont Gazette reports. Lallemand spent last season as an assistant coach at Bixby after spending four years in Wichita, Kan., at Kapaun Mount Carmel Catholic High School. He replaces Ryan Wagner, who is now the head coach at Putnam North. Piedmont made the Class 5A state tournament last season. “We want to incorporate a team atmosphere here,” Lalleman told the paper. “I never heard one bad thing about Piedmont when I was asking about this place and interviewing for the job. I’m very excited to get to work with these players and see what we can accomplish.” MILLWOOD STANDOUT LITTLE MOVING TO FLORIDA One of the state’s top football prospects has announced he will be moving to Florida for his senior season. Kansas State commit Josh Little is leaving Millwood and will attend Trinity Christian Academy in Jacksonville, Fla. Little was rated No. 10 in The Oklahoman’s most recent edition of the Super 30 recruit rankings for the 2015 class. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound defensive end had 76 tackles and five sacks as a junior. UNUSUAL TIME FOR CONRAD Camped out in his usual spot at the annual Oklahoma Coaches Association clinic all week, J.R. Conrad was hard at work for Power Lift, the weight lifting equipment company he is a salesman for. But Friday nights won’t be so typical for Conrad, the former Oklahoma standout who has worked the last several years as a coach at multiple levels. He stepped down as the head coach at Dibble in April. “It’ll be the first time since third grade that I haven’t done anything in the fall,” Conrad said. Chad Stone, formerly the head coach at Altus, has taken over at Dibble. PIEDMONT’S REID, PRIDDY ADDING OFFERS After making the state tournament last season, two Piedmont girls basketball players are turning heads. Second-year coach Jamie Hill said Bre Reid has picked up two scholarship offers this summer from Denver and Tulsa, while Hayden Priddy has gathered offers from Arkansas State and Southern Arkansas. Priddy is also receiving interest from several Division II schools.
A farewell to people with Oklahoma ties who enjoyed the game day experience.
Tributes: Former Sooner Les Layton hit a homer in first big league at bat
By Scott Munn | Mar 16, 2014A farewell to people with Oklahoma ties who enjoyed a game day experience: •Les Layton grew up in Nardin, a Kay County community just south of the Kansas border. He played the 1942 baseball season for Oklahoma, which would suspend its program the next three years due to World War II. Layton had a brief stint in the Navy, before resuming his baseball career with the New York Giants organization. The outfielder/pinch hitter played 63 games of the 1948 season with the Giants, hitting a home run in his first big league at bat. The remainder of Layton’s pro career was spent in the minors for teams affiliated with the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Cubs and Baltimore Orioles. He played a few seasons of semi-pro baseball with the Wichita Boeing Bombers, helping the Jayhawk League team win National Baseball Congress championships in 1954 and 1955. After baseball, Layton worked in the aircraft industry and was inducted into the Kansas Baseball Hall of Fame. He was retired in Scottsdale, Ariz., when he died at 92. •Former State Fair Speedway champion Larry Allen died after suffering a heart attack. He was 51. Allen, who started racing cars at age 15, won Super Stock points championships at the famed Oklahoma City track in 1982 and 1984. The Mustang resident added a Super Modified title in 1989. Allen worked for Wesmar Racing Engines in Bixby for several years before starting his own business — Allen Competition Engines. He also spent time in Pennsylvania working for Leitzinger Racing. •Johnnie Risinger, 81, of Altus went to Southside High School and then on to OU, where he was a first baseman over the 1952-54 seasons under coach Jack Baer. Risinger went into coaching after school, and then became a partner in R&S Sporting Goods. He was a founder of the Jackson County Athletic Hall of Fame and helped organize the Altus All-Sports Association. •Oklahoma City attorney Bob McCandless represented Nixon White House counsel John Dean before the U.S. Senate committee investigating Watergate. McCandless also served as Sen. Hubert Humphrey’s western states delegate coordinator for the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago.

He died recently at age 76. •Webb City native James Benge, 79, was a volunteer with Little League baseball and American Legion baseball. He was a long-time employee of Phillips Petroleum and often participated in the company’s bowling leagues. Also an avid golfer. •Chuck Kress of Colville, Wash., played professional baseball in Oklahoma. The first baseman spent the 1948 season with the Tulsa Oilers, then the Texas League affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. Kress had an exceptional summer, batting .312 with 13 homers, 12 triples and 41 doubles. He would play only 175 games in the big leagues during a 16-year pro career. He retired after the 1961 season and went to work for Tasty Baking Co., where he would become vice president for shipping and supplies. Kress died at 92. •Richard Dermer, 74, Stillwater. Founder of Hideaway Pizza. Really — what is a game day in Stillwater without stopping for a Hideaway pie? •Mike Wright, 57, of Quapaw liked to compete in figure-8 dirt car racing. He also participated in demolition derbies. A fan of the Denver Broncos — and of any team that played the Kansas City Chiefs. •Opal Akins, 84, of Oklahoma City played school basketball in Bromide. ...

He would become dive chief for the Carter County Sheriff’s Department....Jesse Robertson, 83, played football at Lawton High School. The construction engineer also spent many weekends at Lawton Speedway....J. Doyal Nicholson, 94, of Edmond held OU football season tickets for 60 years. •Jess Cooper III of Talihina was being watched by professional baseball scouts, but lingering arm troubles kept him from playing at the next level.

High school notebook: New Westmoore coach Adam Gaylor ready for opportunity
By Scott Wright, Jacob Unruh and Trent Shadid | Mar 11, 2014As the defensive coordinator at Broken Arrow, Adam Gaylor saw a lot of talent at Westmoore the past two seasons. So when former Westmoore coach Billy Langford resigned following this season, Gaylor couldn’t pass up the opportunity to become the Jaguars’ coach. On Monday, he was officially approved by the Moore Schools Board of Directors as head coach. “After the job came open and I made my initial inquiries, you couldn’t not do it in my position,” Gaylor said. “Definitely one of the premier jobs in all of the state, not just on the west side.” Gaylor, a Wagoner native, spent the past seven seasons at Broken Arrow, six of which he was the defensive coordinator. He was also a graduate assistant at Central Oklahoma and Northeastern A&M College around one year of serving as Wagoner’s defensive coordinator. He played football at both Arkansas Tech and UCO before graduating from Northeastern State. Though he’s well-traveled, Gaylor said he’s ready for his first head coaching gig. “For a first-time head coach to have the opportunity I have, I’m humbled and I understand what’s being entrusted to me,” he said. “I’m definitely going to work to make sure I don’t disappoint and make sure those that have entrusted me with this I make them happy and I make them proud.” Both Westmoore and Broken Arrow lost in the Class 6A semifinals last season. The Tigers won the regular-season matchup between the two in Week 10. Gaylor, though, remembers the Jaguars’ offense standing out that game, especially quarterback Bryson Lee and highly recruited receiver Dahu Green. “As a defensive coach, I have a lot of respect for their schemes and how they attack you, and also how physical they were,” he said. “Outside looking in, just really, really respected their schemes and the way they coached, but also they had fantastic players.” All-State swimmers named The swim teams have been announced for the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State swim meet, to be held the last week of July in Tulsa. The All-State coaches will be announced at a later date. Here are the rosters: •West boys: Garrett Thompson, Altus; Gabriel Sanchez; Enid; Joe Sullivan, Norman; Caleb Kliewer, Edmond Memorial; Michael Britton, Edmond North; Garrett Duncan, Edmond North; Zack Padgett, Edmond North; Riley Bunyard, Harrah; Damon Demar, Duncan. •East boys: Hunter Cordell, Jenks; Charles Clark, Stillwater; Colton Posey, Tulsa Union; Jesus Carvajal; Tulsa Edison; Brandon Walker, Fort Gibson; Andrew Moore, Jenks; Matthew Tree, Stillwater; Will McDowell, Jenks; Alex Campbell, Jenks. •West girls: Sarah Nazail, Enid; Hunter McEachern, Enid; Karen Chao, Lawton MacArthur; Jackie Dyer, Norman North; Andrea Rodriguez-Sanchez, Norman North; Kasey Rein, Piedmont; Lara Gatton, Westmoore; Jessi Hildebrand, Newcastle; Olivia Seefeldt, Edmond North. •East girls: Leslie White, Fort Gibson; Kyla Martin, Fort Gibson; Whitney Stroup, Fort Gibson; Amanda Hoffman, Tulsa Union; Gayle Mages, Tulsa Edison; McKenzie Wilson, Tulsa Washington; Samantha Wigley, Ponca City; Jessi Parent, Ponca City; Heather Todd, Jenks.

The Blue Devils' senior will get to play baseball and perhaps golf this spring.
High schools: Ringling sanctions announced, Ryan Lester wins appeal
BY JACOB UNRUH | Feb 12, 2014After using an ineligible player for nearly all football season, Ringling learned of its fate and the player's fate Wednesday during the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors meeting. The board voted 7-4 in favor of allowing senior Ryan Lester to play baseball and possibly golf this spring after he was ruled ineligible before the Class A football semifinals due to repeating the eighth grade and not sitting out the required year. “We're excited that Ryan is going to get to play baseball,” Ringling football coach and athletic director Tracy Gandy said. “And I appreciate the board hearing us out and giving us an honest evaluation. I think the facts in this case are pretty clear that there was no intent on his part or anybody's part. It was more or less a clerical mistake that we made at the school.” The OSSAA staff also informed the board of self-imposed sanctions by the school the organization has agreed to, including not allowing the football team to participate in spring practices. Ringling came under fire during the playoffs when an anonymous letter was sent to the OSSAA with details about Lester's eligibility. The OSSAA ruled Lester ineligible but allowed the team to continue playing. The Blue Devils lost the Class A championship game to Hollis. Other sanctions include: *The football program is placed on warning for one year. *Any head coach that also serves as athletic director, like Gandy, will not be allowed to handle student-athlete eligibility issues. That responsibility will fall to someone else to be determined. *All Ringling students are now required to complete a New Student Form before each school year to determine eligibility. *The school has already completed a thorough examination of each student's eligibility, finding two juniors to have repeated the seventh grade. They will be allowed to complete this year, but their eligibility for their senior season will be determined later. NEWCASTLE'S SANDERS REINSTATED Newcastle girls basketball coach Brett Sanders vowed to improve how he deals with officials. He earned his reinstatement from the board following a lengthy period in which he was not allowed to coach due to being ejected from two games this season. Sanders, a first-year coach for the Racers, was ejected a second time last month, breaking OSSAA Rule 13, Section 4. The rule states that “any coach who is ejected from a contest a second time for the same or related activity shall be suspended from coaching until reinstated by the OSSAA Board of Directors.” Sanders told the board he would resign if he is ejected again. He missed 10 high school games and five junior high games during the suspension. “Each one of them cuts a little deeper,” Sanders told the board. NEW BOARD MEMBERS ELECTED Results of the elections for six quadrants were announced for new board members, with one still to be determined. Guthrie superintendent Mike Simpson won a runoff for the Northwest Quadrant Division I vacancy, while former Oklahoma City Public Schools deputy superintendent Sandra Park won the Multi-High District, though she is currently searching for another job in a multi-high system to retain her position. Other winners include Shawn Hime of Enid, Mike Zurline of Rush Springs, Mark Haught of Altus and Mark Hudson of Preston. Bryan McNutt of Antlers and Kevin Duncan of Tishomingo will have a runoff for the final open position.

Linebacker Jones is headed to Central Oklahoma. Offensive lineman Montgomery will play for Tulsa.
High school notebook: Douglass' Johnny Jones, Mildren Montgomery announce signings
BY SCOTT WRIGHT, JACOB UNRUH AND TRENT SHADID, Staff Writers | Feb 10, 2014While Deondre Clark's college announcement drew most of the attention, he wasn't the only Douglass football player who shared his college signing Monday. Offensive lineman Mildren Montgomery, 6-foot-5, 265 pounds, is headed to Tulsa, while linebacker Johnny Jones, 6-1, 210 pounds, signed with Central Oklahoma. Montgomery switched his commitment from Texas Tech to Tulsa last month. With his sights set on stardom as a left tackle, Montgomery says he hopes to be up to 275 pounds by the time he arrives at TU in June with an ultimate target weight of 300. “I wrestled at 171 pounds when I a freshman in Florida,” Montgomery said. “It's a process, a plan. I thank God for the opportunity to play college football. “I report in mid-June, and I can't wait to get in the flow of college life. It's one of my dreams.” Jones will join former Trojan linebacker Jas'Sen Stoner and others at UCO in Edmond. Jones has also been a defensive end and tight end during his time at Douglass, but looks to fit as an outside linebacker with the Division-II Bronchos. “I felt like I fit right in,” Jones said. “The campus isn't too big, not too small. It feels like home. “I'm real excited. Ready to go make a difference.” OSSAA AGENDA INCLUDES 6A PROPOSAL Wednesday's Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors meeting is jammed with big items on the agenda. Putnam City Schools athletic director Dick Balenseifen will continue his proposal to split Class 6A into two divisions across all sports with the board voting to possibly take action. Last month, Balenseifen's proposal was delivered, but the board voted to include it as an item Wednesday. The board will also vote to send out a legislative ballot to member schools to be voted upon regarding hardship waiver appeals and “due process” procedures for investigating alleged rule violations. OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley will also inform the board of sanctions against Ringling regarding playing Ryan Lester during football season. Lester, who is also appealing for his baseball eligibility Wednesday, was ruled ineligible in December. The board can vote to change the sanctions should it deem that necessary. DUAL STATE BRACKETS RELEASED The brackets in all four classes for this Saturday's Dual State Wrestling Tournaments were released by the OSSAA on Monday. The Class 3A and 4A tournaments will be at Cushing High School, and the 5A and 6A tournaments at Yukon High School. The first round will begin at 10 a.m. for 3A and 5A, and at noon for 4A and 6A. Matchups in all classes are determined after the eight-team field is split by east and west and seeded 1-4 based on the coaches' rankings. Here are the first-round matchups: 3A: Perry (W1) vs. Chandler (E4), Locust Grove (E2) vs. Plainview (W3), Jay (E1) vs. Kingfisher (W4), Blackwell (W2) vs. Tonkawa (E3). 4A: Tuttle (W1) vs. Mannford (E4), Catoosa (E2) vs. Harrah (W3), Vinita (E1) vs. Clinton (W4), Cushing (W2) vs. Sallisaw (E3). 5A: Lawton MacArthur (W1) vs. Western Heights (E4), Shawnee (E2) vs. Altus (W3), Collinsville (E1) vs. Piedmont (W4), Del City (W2) vs. Coweta (E3). 6A: Edmond North (W1) vs. Muskogee (E4), Broken Arrow (E2) vs. Southmoore (W3), Stillwater (E1) vs. Midwest City (W4), Yukon (W2) vs. Tulsa Union (E3). Semifinal duals will begin at 2 p.m. with the finals at 6:30 in all classes. WARIBOKO-ALALI ADDS FLORIDA STATE OFFER Casady offensive lineman Josh Wariboko-Alali keeps getting offers with the most recent being from national champion Florida State. Wariboko-Alali now has a dozen offers, but he remains verbally committed to Oklahoma. He committed June 27 to the Sooners. The 6-3, 310-pound junior, who is No. 2 on The Oklahoman's Super 30, recently confirmed that his offer from Southern California stands with new coach Steve Sarkisian. MILLWOOD'S GLOVER PICKS WESTERN ILLINOIS While his Millwood teammates were signing their letters of intent Wednesday, running back Janari Glover was still mulling over his decision. Rumors suggested he might end up at Northeastern State in Tahlequah, like teammate Quincy Dotson, but an offer from Western Illinois in which he'll be able to play football and run track ultimately won him over. Glover, 5-7, 145 pounds, rushed for 1,187 yards and 13 touchdowns on just 88 carries, an average of 13.5 per attempt to earn a second-team spot on The Oklahoman's Little All-City team. He was first-team Little All-City in track for his performance as a sprinter. He won the 100 meters in Class 3A with a time of 10.87 seconds. BENSON LEAVING SALLISAW FOR DUNCAN Sallisaw football coach Craig Benson is expected to be named the new football coach at Duncan, according to a report by the Tahlequah Daily Press. Sallisaw went 51-19 under Benson, reaching the playoffs in each of his six seasons. He will replace legendary coach Jim Holloway, who was let go in December. OWASSO, CARL ALBERT IN TOP 50 TEAMS NATIONALLY Perfect Game released its top 50 baseball teams in the nation Monday, with two Oklahoma teams being included. Owasso, which finished unbeaten while winning Class 6A last season, is ranked No. 7. Carl Albert, the two-time defending Class 5A champion, is ranked No. 32. Both teams have won four titles since 2007.
Copeland will remain at the Class 6A school as a teacher. The Eagles were 4-6 last season and missed the playoffs by one game.
High school football notebook: Boone Copeland resigns as Lawton Eisenhower football coach
BY SCOTT WRIGHT, Staff Writer, firstname.lastname@example.org | Feb 7, 2014The Class 6A football coaching carousel keeps turning, leaving a vacancy at Lawton Eisenhower on Friday. The Lawton school board accepted the resignation of Boone Copeland, who will remain at the school as a teacher, as initially reported by Lawton television station KSWO-7. Lawton Ike was 4-6 last season, missing the playoffs by one game. The program will benefit from the divisional split coming to Class 6A football next fall. Currently ranked No. 31 out of 32 Class 6A schools in average daily attendance, the Eagles will be part of Division II for the next two seasons. The school is about 50 students above the cutoff for dropping into Class 5A. WILKINSON HIRED AT COWETA Following the promotion of Broken Arrow running backs coach David Alexander to head coach, the Tigers are now in the market for a new offensive coordinator. Jay Wilkinson is leaving that position to become the new head coach at Coweta, pending school board approval on Monday. He replaces Bubba Burcham, who stepped down to pursue work in ministry. Originally from Stroud, Wilkinson has previously worked as the head coach at Metro Christian for two seasons and the offensive coordinator at Central Oklahoma for three. ALTUS PICKS DICKSON'S REED Dickson's Jeremy Reed was hired last week as the new head football coach at Altus. Reed spent three seasons as Dickson's head coach and one at Coalgate, and has also worked as the offensive coordinator at Ardmore and Sand Springs. OTHER OPENINGS OF NOTE With Rafe Watkins' departure for Muskogee, Guthrie will certainly draw a lot of interest from coaches around the state. But the Bluejays also have some loyal assistants who could be in the running for a promotion. ... Westmoore is the best 6A job that remains open, though there's no known timetable for a hire to be made. ... The Oklahoma City Public School system is in the process of filling head coaching vacancies at U.S. Grant, Capitol Hill, Northwest Classen and Northeast. ... Sources say Duncan is close to finishing its search to replace Jim Holloway, who was let go in December.

A farewell to people with Oklahoma ties who enjoyed a game day experience.
Tributes: Frank Parr was a local soccer icon
BY SCOTT MUNN, Assistant Sports Editor, email@example.com | Jan 20, 2014A farewell to people with Oklahoma ties who enjoyed a game day experience: *Frank Parr, 92, of Oklahoma City was employed by the Federal Aviation Administration. Away from work, he was heavily involved in local soccer. Parr spent 30 years as a member of the Oklahoma Soccer Association as a player, coach, referee or administrator. He served eight years as the Central Oklahoma Soccer League president. Parr was just one of three people given the Oklahoma Soccer Officials' Golden Whistle Award. *Ed Sheldon, 84, of Bartlesville served in the Army during the Korean War. While stationed in Augsburg, Germany, he played basketball. Sheldon later became recognized for handmade turkey calls.

He provided color commentary over the public address system at now-defunct Tulsa Speedway, while also contributing articles to the Speedway News. Champion did not mind handling the dangerous side of racing, too. He often patrolled Turn 1 at the Tulsa track, working as a fireman and paramedic.

He also assisted in the development of a baseball field in Wewoka. *Jack Mars, 78, moved to Tulsa to work for B.F. Goodrich. As a youngster in Akron, Ohio, Mars was quite the athlete. He stood 6-foot-7 and starred in football, basketball, baseball and boxing. Perhaps before a growth spurt, Mars participated in the legendary Soap Box Derby in Akron. *Leonard Tunnell of Miami, OK, coached sports at Ketchum, Wyandotte, Locust Grove and Bluejacket schools. The six-time Bronze star recipient during World War II died at age 89. *Henryetta resident Ken Wion was a text book consultant for D.C. Heath & Co. As a young man, he played football and basketball and ran track for Woodward High School. He then played college football at Southwestern State in Weatherford. After retirement, he spent time supporting Henryetta High athletic teams. He died at age 73. *John Mahaffey, 14, of Cache participated in Special Olympics. He was a member of the Hammer Heads swim team. *Clayton Smith, 18, played baseball for Morris High School. He received an athletic scholarship to Highland Community College in Kansas shortly before he died in an automobile crash. *Oklahoma City physician James Wenzl acquired an interest in medicine while playing high school football in Greenleaf, Kan. Wenzl suffered a broken nose, a broken tibia, a dislocated shoulder and a broken foot over his junior and senior seasons. He told family members, “I spent so much time talking to doctors in those two years that I became intrigued by the work.” Wenzl, a former pediatric nephrologist at The Children's Hospital, was also a standout half-miler for the Greenleaf track team. He died at age 78 after a five-year fight with cancer. *Oklahoma City resident John Meek, 84, played basketball at Westark Junior College in Fort Smith, Ark. ...

OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley agrees with the process and hopes to have a version of it implemented by next school year.
High school notebook: OSSAA looking to form appeals committee
BY JACOB UNRUH, Staff Writers, firstname.lastname@example.org | Dec 11, 2013The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors meeting opened with a 45-minute presentation that could shake up the appeals process. Missouri High School Activities Association executive director Kerwin Urhahn delivered the presentation on how his organization successfully uses an appeals committee that started around 15 years ago. The committee in Missouri is formed of 10 school administrators and meets at a time before the board meeting to hear students' appeals and make a ruling, adding another layer to the appeals process. OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley agrees with the process and hopes to have a version of it implemented by next school year. “I think that after going out (to) the area meetings and we talked about this, there was 2-1 support to put another level in there,” he said. “It doesn't make sense to reinvent the wheel if it's already out there. “We hope that this is something the staff can put together with the help of our legal council, and we can send something out the membership this spring.” FOOTBALL REIMBURSEMENT INCREASED The OSSAA unanimously approved increasing the reimbursement total for football teams that travel during the first three rounds of the playoffs. The total was raised $71,000, increasing the total reimbursement to $136,000 across the postseason. “This is a huge change,” Sheakley said. “This is giving back what we feel is something that we think is going to be close; it's never going to be dollar-for-dollar. “We want to do what's right. We want to help our schools. This whole thing has been a process. It's taken a little longer than what some of our member schools probably wanted, but we think we got it right.” The changes take effect immediately. This is also a second increase in the total since August. SHARON-MUTUAL COACHING STAFF SHOOK UP Two Sharon-Mutual coaches resigned and another resigned earlier this week, the Woodward News reports. Football coach Chris Syms, who is also the high school principal, resigned along with boys basketball coach Reece Lujan. Girls basketball coach Kevin Crows was also temporarily suspended. No reason has been given for the resignations and suspension, though superintendent Jeff Thompson released a statement announcing the changes. Kala Gaines will take over the girls basketball team during Crows' suspension, while Thompson said the duties of Syms and Lujan will be temporarily reassigned. Syms led Sharon-Mutual to the Class C semifinals nearly two weeks ago. The Trojans were eliminated by Tipton, 42-40, in double overtime. DENTON RESIGNS FROM BOARD Yukon superintendent Bill Denton resigned from his post on the OSSAA board due to his looming retirement, leaving his post with nearly two years remaining on his term. The board unanimously approved Altus High School principal Mark Haught to fill Denton's term from the remainder of the school year. The spot will then reopen for election for the final year of the term along with five other open positions on the board due to members' terms ending. 7-FOOT-3 AHMED DENIED ELIGIBILITY Tulsa Kelley's 7-foot-3 senior basketball player, Mahmoud Ahmed, was denied his hardship appeal by the OSSAA board of directors after a lengthy appeal in executive session. The appeal lasted more than an hour, but it was unanimously denied by the board. Ahmed, who is from Sudan, transferred from Victory Christian to Tulsa Kelley. He has not played in an OSSAA-sanctioned event, though he has played some club basketball. He was listed as a member of Save Our Youth Leadership Academy in Tulsa on MaxPreps.com as a sophomore. VOLLEYBALL ADDS CLASS; CROSS COUNTRY MAKES CHANGE The OSSAA board of directors unanimously approved adding a fourth class in volleyball next season. After speaking with athletic directors at area meetings, OSSAA assistant director Mike Clark recommended to the board the change. In the new format, Class 6A-4A will each contain 32 schools, while the new Class 3A will be the remaining total. Clark said the total this season would have been around 30 schools, but could be 32 next year. *Another change made by the board was approving girls cross country competitors in Class 6A and Class 5A to run a 5K (3.1 miles) instead of the standard 2 miles. All other classes will remain the same, OSSAA assistant director David Glover said.

Douglass' Deondre Clark receives All-America jersey
By Jacob Unruh and Scott Wright | Nov 19, 2013As he accepted his jersey for the Semper Fidelis All-America Bowl during a schoolwide assembly at Douglass High School on Tuesday, defensive end Deondre Clark noticed a lot of young football players watching him. “It was a blessing to let the young kids see that,” Clark said. “Maybe it's some motivation to let them know that they can do that one day, and to just stay focused, keep grinding and go hard every day.” Clark, who is verbally committed to LSU, has been a starting defensive end at Douglass since his freshman season. With 18 sacks against constant double-teams this season, he has now compiled 61 sacks for his career. And this season, he added a new facet to his game. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound senior is a 1,000-yard rusher, too. With just 131 carries on the season, he has accounted for 1,168 yards and 20 touchdowns from the tailback position. Having played tight end his first two years, and fullback as a junior, tailback was a new experience. “It was an adjustment, but it's kinda fun now,” Clark said with a laugh. “I think I'm doing all right for my first season doing it.” Clark will join Tulsa Union tight end Carson Meier in the Los Angeles area from Jan. 1-5 for the Semper Fidelis All-America Bowl. The game will be held at 8 p.m. on Jan. 5 at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif, and be televised by Fox Sports 1. Clark was also selected to play for Team USA in the International Bowl against Team Canada in February. ALTUS SOPHOMORE BIRDOW OFFERED BY TULSA Altus sophomore running back Taven Birdow's stellar season is already bringing in scholarship offers. Altus coach Chad Stone said Birdow received an offer from Tulsa on Monday, becoming one of the first members of Oklahoma's 2016 class to pick up a scholarship offer. Birdow, the son of former Oklahoma State standout Jermaine Birdow, was a bright spot for the 3-7 Bulldogs this season. He rushed for a school-record 1,796 yards and 16 touchdowns, while averaging 8.8 yards per carry. For his career, he already has 24 touchdowns — 22 on the ground — and 2,233 rushing yards. Norman North sophomore running back Quan Hogan also has an offer from Tulsa. MORE MEDALS TO BE DISTRIBUTED The OSSAA voted to purchase more individual medals for the champion and runner-up for each football class, increasing the total from 600 to 894. Class 6A's teams will now received 90 medals, while 5A will receive 70; 4A and 3A will receive 60; 2A will receive 50; A will receive 45; and both B and C will receive 36. This comes one month after the OSSAA agreed to let schools broadcast all games online in football until the semifinals and up until the state tournaments in other sports.

Landon Nault, Briana Kuestersteffen win state High School Heisman awards
BY SCOTT WRIGHT AND JACOB UNRUH | Nov 5, 2013Landon Nault of Kingfisher and Briana Kuestersteffen of Norman North were selected as Oklahoma's winners of the Wendy's High School Heisman, the organization announced this week. The award recognizes student-athletes for their hard work and dedication in athletics, academics and community leadership. Nault and Kuestersteffen will now be in the running to be among 12 finalists invited to New York City on Dec. 13, where the national winners will be announced during a televised ceremony on an ESPN network. National finalists receive gold medals and $2,000 awards for their high schools, while the national winners receive a trophy, $500 Wendy's gift card and a donation of $10,000 to their high schools. They will also be recognized during the college football Heisman Trophy announcement on Dec. 14. TATE TO HAVE SURGERY Edmond North senior running back Lindell Tate has a big day Wednesday. He will finally have surgery on his torn anterior cruciate ligament Wednesday morning at OU Medical Center, then he will get to meet former NFL receiver Johnny Knox, who is in town to see Tate and start a foundation to help athletes like him. Tate, who suffered the injury in an August scrimmage, had been unable to receive the surgery since he no longer had insurance when he turned 19 in August. OU Medical Center is covering the cost of nearly everything. THOMAS DECOMMITS FROM TEXAS TECH Lawton defensive lineman Ivan Thomas decommitted from Texas Tech late Monday night, announcing his decision via Twitter. “It's official to say that I will be opening up my recruitment again,” he tweeted, ending a longtime commitment with the university. Thomas, who is No. 21 on The Oklahoman's Super 30, also has an offer from Kansas State. The 6-foot-1, 285-pound lineman has five sacks and 36 tackles this season. He's also rushed for three touchdowns. ALTUS' BIRDOW SETS MARK Altus sophomore running back Taven Birdow continued his stellar season during Friday's 35-34 loss to Ardmore, rushing for 235 yards and three touchdowns to set the school's single-season rushing record. Birdow, the son of former Oklahoma State standout Jermaine Birdow, now has 1,622 yards on the season. Altus (2-7, 2-6 District 5A-1) finishes its season at Capitol Hill on Friday. APACHE'S MCCOMBS OK Apache sophomore Willie McCombs returned to school Tuesday after suffering an injury that temporarily left him without movement in his legs during the Warriors' 34-14 loss to Hollis. McCombs was diagnosed with a fracture in his C6 vertebrae, but is expected to make a full recovery in time for next season, Apache coach Larry McDaniel said. “He was pretty down and out about being out this week and the rest of the season, but in the end, when you can walk, that's what it's really about,” McDaniel said. “He was fortunate he came off the field before he took any more hits on it. He said he played a few plays while it hurt.” McCombs will not require surgery for the injury, though he may be required to wear a special collar when he plays football in the future. He suffered the injury while playing cornerback, but reported a crick in his neck a few plays later. Once he was on the sideline being attended to, his arms and legs went numb before he lost feeling and movement in his legs. He regained that movement Saturday, though. LITTELL, CARTER HIGHLY RANKED BY PERFECT GAME Stillwater outfielder/third baseman Jon Littell and Cascia Hall catcher Bryce Carter were included in Perfect Game's rankings for the 2014 high school baseball class after strong showings at the Perfect Game National Showcase. Littell was ranked No. 30, while Carter came in at No. 40. Littell, the son of Oklahoma State women's basketball coach Jim Littell, was clocked at 92 mph on his throws from the outfield and also displayed huge power potential. Carter, meanwhile, was clocked at 79 mph from behind the plate. Both players were on the roster for the Perfect Game All-American Classic. Littell is verbally committed to OSU, and Carter is verbally committed to Stanford.

High school notebook: Oklahoma City Public Schools athletics honoring veterans
BY SCOTT WRIGHT AND JACOB UNRUH | Nov 3, 2013OKCPS athletics honoring veterans Oklahoma City Public Schools will honor military veterans at all athletic contests for the week of Nov. 4-8. All veterans who show a valid military ID will be given free admission to events and will be recognized at halftime for their service to the country. Veterans will be given free admission to the middle-school football championship games Tuesday night at Douglass, beginning with John Marshall vs. Northeast at 5:30 p.m. in the third-place game and the championship game between Millwood at Centennial at 7. On Thursday, free admission will be available for the Altus vs. Capitol Hill game at Douglass, and the Centennial vs. John Marshall game at Star Spencer, both at 7 p.m. Friday's 7 p.m. games include Crooked Oak vs. Northeast at Douglass, Del City vs. Southeast at Crooked Oak and Heritage Hall at Star Spencer. YUKON'S PLAYOFF HOPES STILL ALIVE The chances of Yukon making its fifth straight playoff appearance appeared to be dead after the Oct. 24 loss to Midwest City. But with Lawton Eisenhower's upset of Putnam City North on Friday night, the Millers are still alive for the postseason. There are several scenarios left to play out, with Midwest City, Edmond North and Putnam City North tied for second place in District 6A-3 with 4-2 records. But Yukon, at 3-3, has one fact to take care of: win. The Millers host PC North on Thursday night. A win doesn't guarantee them a playoff berth, but it's their only shot. They would also need wins from Midwest City (vs. Moore) and Edmond North (vs. U.S. Grant). LEXINGTON'S HOKETT REMAINS HOT Lexington junior quarterback Kyle Hokett had another big game for the Bulldogs on Friday, throwing five touchdown passes and completing 15 of 28 passes for 358 yards in a 56-28 win against Konawa. It marks the second game in three weeks that he's thrown five touchdowns, showing that he is finding his stride in his first season at quarterback and second year in the spread offense. “This year he kind of made it a point that he was going to learn the offense and put the time in, and has done that,” Lexington coach Jeff Hall said. “He's doing a really good of grasping the offense. The good thing for us is six different people caught passes and three different caught touchdown passes.” Senior running back Luke Gifford also rushed for 114 yards and three touchdowns, as Lexington remained in the hunt for a home playoff game. The Bulldogs host Community Christian on Friday in a nondistrict game.
