State college football: Southwestern State playing for postseason
By Cody Stavenhagen, Staff Writer | Nov 11, 2015It took five consecutive wins to get here, and now the Southwestern Oklahoma State Bulldogs have a chance at the postseason. SWOSU plays at Northwestern on Saturday at 2 p.m. in Alva, and a win — paired with Henderson State making the playoffs — would give SWOSU its first postseason appearance since joining NCAA Division II. SWOSU is currently in a four-way tie for second place in the Great American Conference, but holds the advantage in the head-to-head tiebreaker with the three other teams. The Bulldogs are playing for a chance at the Live United Texarkana Bowl on Dec. 5. There are several reasons for the Bulldogs' strong play as of late, but none is more important that than defense. SWOSU has held its past four opponents to 14 points or fewer. In last week's 28-14 win against Arkansas Tech, Trevon Hartfield was the GAC Defensive Player of the Week after a career-high 10 tackles and two interceptions. "What a big-time game,” SWOSU coach Dan Cocannouer said after the win. "Our defense played unbelievable, and my hat's off to them. It's a tribute to how we've played the last four weeks. They were awesome." Central Oklahoma: The Bronchos have won three straight, and kicker Seth Hiddink is the Mid-American Intercollegiate Athletics Association/AstroTurf Special Teams Player of the Week. This is the third time this season for Hiddink to win the award. In a 37-20 win against Lindenwood, Hiddink made field goals of 20, 20 and 28 yards to set school records with 16 field goals this season and 42 for his career. East Central: Despite a 35-26 loss to Southern Arkansas, junior receiver David Moore had 201 receiving yards and a touchdown. His 12 receiving touchdowns this season ties a school record. Panhandle State: Panhandle State has a second round Lone Star Conference playoff game this week at Tarleton State. OPSU allowed 658 yards earlier this year in an 84-47 loss to Tarleton. Southeastern: Southeastern is coming off back-to-back wins and has not allowed a point in seven of the past eight quarters. The Savage Storm forced six turnovers and held Arkansas-Monticello to only 97 yards of offense in last week's 37-0 win. Oklahoma Baptist: OBU just missed an upset of No. 9 Henderson State last week in a 22-14 loss. The Bison led 7-0 at halftime, but allowed three touchdown drives in the second half and weren't able to tie the game on their final drive. Jailen Garrett enters this week four solo tackles short of a school record 56. Northeastern: The Riverhawks enter this week in 10th place in the MIAA standings, but their defensive line has still been fierce. NSU has 26 sacks through 10 games, the most since the 2005 team finished the season with 28. Steffon Heard leads the team with five sacks. Northwestern: Coming into this week's matchup with Southwestern, the Rangers' defense is first in the country with 19 fumble recoveries. Their 32 takeaways is also good for third in the nation. Southern Nazarene: SNU has lost 33 consecutive games and is 0-38 against Division II schools since leaving the NAIA. SNU faces OBU this week. Langston: The Lions' 48-24 win against Wayland Baptist was their fourth straight. This week, Langston hosts Texas College at Tulsa's Booker T. Washington High School. Bacone: Bacone's 27-12 loss to first-place Arizona Christian marked the team's fourth loss in five games. STATE COLLEGE SCHEDULE SATURDAY Panhandle State (5-4) vs. Tarleton State (2-7), noon, Stephenville, Texas Northeastern (2-8) at Lindenwood (3-7), 1:30 p.m., St. Charles, Mo.

High school notebook: Bethany's Hudson Haws heads to Colorado, next fundraiser planned
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Staff Writers | Nov 9, 2015Injured Bethany football player Hudson Haws made a couple of big steps in the progression of his recovery on Monday. Haws, who remains paralyzed below the chest following an injury in a game on Oct. 23, was flown from Oklahoma City to Colorado, where he was admitted to Craig Hospital in Englewood, a suburb of Denver. Craig Hospital is one of the world's elite facilities for treatment of spinal cord injuries. Upon being admitted and examined, his new doctor ordered that his feeding tube be removed, according to reports from Haws' father, Tim. The doctor told the family he was not concerned about Haws' nutritional condition. As he begins to work through the various therapies and treatments at Craig Hospital, Haws will learn more about his potential for recovery. With the family facing mounting medical expenses, another Oklahoma City restaurant has stepped up to host a fundraising event. The Chick-fil-A on Northwest Expressway and Rockwell Avenue will donate a percentage of sales from lunch and dinner on Tuesday to the Hudson Haws Fund. In addition, the OSSAA has contacted its insurance company regarding a catastrophic injury policy that the association carries on behalf of the student-athletes for its member schools. “We've contacted our agent and sent them the paperwork to start that process,” OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley said. “It's a supplementary program, a $500,000 policy with a $25,000 deductible.” The OSSAA spends $100,000 per year on the policy and is one of the few state organizations that carries one for regular season and postseason play. Most state groups only carry a policy for association-governed postseason events. It also includes a death benefit. “We've had it for a long time,” Sheakley said. “We always hope we never have a reason to use it.” OSSAA OFFERS VETERANS FREE ADMISSION The OSSAA is honoring veterans a second straight year for the opening week of the playoffs. The organization will allow free admission to veterans and one guest at any first-round game this week across the state. The veteran must show a driver's license displaying a seal indicating the person is a veteran, a veteran ID card or any other form of verification. "It is our initiative to encourage Oklahoma high schools to recognize veterans in conjunction with any school activities in the next couple of weeks," the OSSAA said in a release. "This is a great way to recognize those who have served our country and reinforce the importance of their sacrifices and the very meaning of Veterans Day." Admission for all other adults and students is $7. The OSSAA began offering the free admission last season after Rep. Gary Banz, R-Midwest City, approached it with the idea of admitting veterans free. The board of directors unanimously approved the idea with the addition of a friend. CHASTAIN, FINE NAMED WENDY'S HEISMAN STATE WINNERS Westmoore's Sydney Chastain and Locust Grove quarterback Mason Fine were named the Oklahoma winners Monday for the annual Wendy's High School Heisman awards. Chastain is a standout on the basketball court for the Jaguars while she also competes in cross country and track. Fine is the state's most recognized quarterback. He holds the career passing record with 12,221 yards entering the first round of the playoffs this week. He also holds the record for career touchdowns. Last week, a group of 20 state finalists were announced. Chastain and Fine will both receive a silver medal, a Wendy's High School Heisman State Winner patch, a $50 Wendy's gift card and a $1,000 school donation if they do not advance to the National Finalist round, which will be announced the Week of Nov. 23. If chosen for the national round, they will receive an invitation to the Wendy's High School Heisman Weekend in New York. CALHOON MOVES TO SECOND ON ALL-TIME PASSING LIST Make it two quarterbacks to pass former Atoka star L.T. Pfaff in the record book. Victory Christian's Keats Calhoon became the latest to pass the previous state record for career passing yards of 11,357 by Pfaff. Calhoon threw for 355 yards in a 48-14 win Friday over Stigler. He passed Pfaff with a 26-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Hicks on the game's opening possession. Calhoon now has 11,707 yards. Locust Grove's Fine continued extending his lead with the record by throwing for 325 yards in a 54-27 win over Jay. He became the first passer in Oklahoma history to pass 12,000 yards. Fine enters the playoffs with 12,221 career yards. Each week, The Oklahoman will update the chase between Calhoon and Fine. Mason Fine, Locust Grove Total entering last week: 11,896 Last week: 325 Career total: 12,221 Keats Calhoon, Victory Christian Total entering last week: 11,352 Last week: 355 Career total: 11,707

Young intercepted a Bethany pass with just over one minute to go that sealed John Marshall’s 27-20 win and gave the Bears the District 3A-2 title.
High school football: Charles Young's interception clinches district title for John Marshall
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Nov 6, 2015BETHANY — With a district championship on the line, John Marshall's Charles Young was right where his team needed him to be. In fact, that's where Young has been all season. Young intercepted a Bethany pass with just over one minute to go that sealed John Marshall's 27-20 win and gave the Bears the District 3A-2 title. “Even though Charles is not a guy that jumps out at you, he's always where he needs to be,” John Marshall coach Rashaun Woods said. “He does everything we ask of him, and I wanted those kind of guys playing tonight. “I put the guys in who I trusted to do the job, and he was one of those guys. And he got the job done.” In a game where the winner was in line for a district title, and the loser was likely out of the playoffs, John Marshall made an early scoring spree hold up. The Bears scored on their first four possessions to take a 27-0 lead, powered by running back Devonte Lee. The sophomore had three touchdowns and 214 yards on 21 carries. But Bethany's defense got back on track, and the Bronchos slowly crept back into the game. On a night when they honored injured senior Hudson Haws, it looked like Bethany might be on its way to a movie-script comeback. Haws, the Bethany linebacker who broke three vertebrae during a game two weeks ago and remains paralyzed below the chest, was recognized during pregame Senior Night activities. And Bethany wore his No. 34 on the right side of their helmets in place of one of their horseshoe logos. But the miracle comeback was turned away, and the Bronchos saw their season end at 7-3. Bethany had a third-quarter touchdown nullified by a penalty, and John Marshall intercepted two passes in the fourth quarter. It's quite a turnaround for a group of John Marshall seniors who were 0-10 as freshmen. “It's a great feeling to be district champs,” said junior Justin Broiles, who had a 42-yard touchdown catch and an interception on defense. “To come from where we came from, 0-10 three years ago, it's great.”

Olive Garden at 6330 Southwest 3rd Street, off Interstate 40 between Rockwell Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard, will host a fundraiser for the Haws family Tuesday night.
High school notebook: Olive Garden to host fundraiser for Bethany's Hudson Haws
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh, Staff Writers | Nov 2, 2015On the heels of two successful fundraising dinners by local restaurants, a third has joined the mix to help injured Bethany football player Hudson Haws. Olive Garden at 6330 Southwest 3rd Street, off Interstate 40 between Rockwell Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard, will host a fundraiser for the Haws family Tuesday night. Part of the proceeds from all sales from 4 p.m.-close Tuesday will go to the family, and donations will also be accepted. Swadley's Bar-B-Q in Bethany served lunch on Sunday at the high school gym and raised more than $37,000. While the final numbers weren't known from Monday's event at Papa Angelo's Pizza, the restaurant had to close early when it ran out of pizza dough. STATE FINALISTS ANNOUNCED FOR WENDY'S HEISMAN The Oklahoma finalists for the annual Wendy's High School Heisman awards were recently announced, with two athletes from the Oklahoma City area and the state's most recognized quarterback making the list. Westmoore's Sydney Chastain and Deer Creek's Paige Nall both made the list. Chastain is a standout basketball player at Westmoore, where she averaged 9.6 points last year as a junior. Nall is a standout swimmer for Deer Creek. Locust Grove quarterback Mason Fine also made the list. He recently broke the state's record for career passing yards and also holds the mark for career touchdowns. The list will be narrowed down to two state winners next week — a boy and a girl. From there, 10 finalists are picked across the country for the final round. Other state finalists include Traynor Blasengame of Stuart; Shalee Brantley of Broken Brow; Omid Darbandi of Tulsa Memorial; Trenton Fletcher of Fox; Dyllan Haworth of Weatherford; Sydney Hutchison of Fairview; Katie Kirkhart of Hilldale; Jordan Kunka of Owasso; Sydney McSlarrow of Coweta; Addison Munsch of Boise City; Sierra Parker of Turner; Morgan Phelps of Fox; Kellen Stauder of Tulsa Union; Matthew Stephens of Rejoice Christian; Joshua Sylvester of Drumright; Nicholas Williams of Sapulpa; Landon Wolf of Tulsa East Central. STILLWATER RUN GAME OVERPOWERS ENID The rainy conditions worked out well for Stillwater, as it churned out 588 rushing yards in a big 48-37 win at Enid to seal a playoff position. Three different players rushed for more than 100 yards with Josiah Castleberry rushing for 209 yards and the decisive touchdown. “Our offensive line did a great job,” Stillwater coach Tucker Barnard said. “They've been getting better and better every week. We've got just a bunch of young guys up there that keep improving. They were making some big holes for all of those guys to run through.” Quarterback Josh Brownlee also rushed for 142 yards and three touchdowns while also throwing for one. The Pioneers moved receiver Jordan Brown, who is verbally committed to Tulsa, into the backfield as well, and he rushed for 149 yards and two TDs. Stillwater travels to Lawton Eisenhower on Friday where a win guarantees second in District 6A-II-2. A loss could put the Pioneers at third or fourth based on multiple scenarios. LEXINGTON MOVES CLOSER TO PLAYOFFS Lexington beat Dibble 22-21 on Friday to move one step closer to a playoff berth entering the final game against Hobart. Sophomore running back Zack Smith added to his already impressive season with 160 yards and two touchdowns. He now has more than 1,700 yards and 17 touchdowns on the year. “Which is crazy because the level of competition we've played is pretty good,” coach Jeff Hall said. Lexington led by nine in the fourth until Dibble got a touchdown and two-point conversion with about five minutes remaining. The Bulldogs then chewed up the clock before a punt pinned Dibble on its own 1 with a minute remaining. Lexington's defense then held firm for the victory. Lexington is 4-5 overall and 2-3 in District 2A-3 play. A win over Hobart locks up the fourth spot. A loss and Dibble win over Frederick would force a three-way tie that will come down to district points.

High school notebook: Papa Angelo's hosting fundraiser on Monday for Bethany's Hudson Haws
By Jacob Unruh Staff Writer email@example.com | Nov 1, 2015Papa Angelo's Pizza in Bethany is scheduled to host a fundraising event for injured Bethany football player Hudson Haws on Monday evening. The popular Bethany restaurant will sell medium pizzas from 4-9 p.m. Monday with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Haws' family to help with medical expenses. Haws is recovering from a spinal cord injury suffered during a football game Oct. 23 that has caused him to be paralyzed below the chest. Papa Angelo's is located at 6744 Northwest 39th Expressway in Bethany. EDMOND NORTH UPSETS OWASSO BEHIND SAFETY Edmond North's coaching staff put together a 15-minute highlight film this week for the players showing how well they can play when they execute properly. On Friday night, they mimicked the tape. Edmond North shocked Owasso 9-7 on the road in a heavy rainstorm. “It's a little validation of what we've been trying to coach and instill in these kids about teamwork, hard work and how good things happen to you,” Edmond North coach Scott Burger said. “The good Lord knows they needed some good things. “These kids have been through a lot. They had their backs against the wall and then playing like that as a group was pretty awesome.” Edmond North (4-5, 3-3 District 6A-I-2) faces Tulsa Union on Friday still clinging to slim playoff hopes. But there is a chance, thanks to a strong defensive effort that capitalized on a safety in the third quarter, when a snap went over Owasso punter Shane Lang's head out of the end zone. The Huskies' defense held firm the rest of the way, including forcing Owasso to turn the ball over on downs with 24 seconds remaining just outside of field goal range. “I can't say enough about the defense,” Burger said. “They've kept us in ballgames this year. They've played really, really good all year. Last night wasn't a fluke. They stepped up when they needed to. They could have folded, but they didn't.” TUTTLE COMPLETES UNDEFEATED REGULAR SEASON WITH 2-0 SHUTOUT Tuttle coach Brad Ballard joked with his team before Friday's game at Glenpool that a win was a win and that it didn't matter if the score was 1-0. Turns out, he was pretty close to being spot on. Tuttle beat Glenpool 2-0 after forcing a safety on Glenpool's opening possession to complete an undefeated regular season in a game filled with torrential rain. “It was like a baseball score,” Ballard said. Tuttle kicked off to Glenpool to open the game and stopped the return inside the 10 yard line. The Tigers then pushed Glenpool backward to the 1, where the snap went over the punter's head out of the end zone for the game's only score. “I think both of us were content to run the clock and flip the field,” Ballard said. “It was just a ball-control game in nasty weather. They had turf, but that wind was blowing and it poured the entire game. It was a mess.” 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. That mark was recently eclipsed by Locust Grove's Mason Fine, who now sits at 11,896 career yards. He also holds the career mark for touchdowns. Next up is Victory Christian's Keats Calhoon, who sits 5 yards away from Pfaff's mark. Each week, The Oklahoman will update the chase between Calhoon and Fine. Mason Fine, Locust Grove Total entering week: 11,658 This week: 238 Career total: 11,896 Yards past record: 539 Keats Calhoon, Victory Christian Total entering week: 11,036 This week: 316 Career total: 11,352 Yards to Pfaff: 5

Dillon Dean returned a fumble 65 yards for Cashion's first score. Blakley Liebman scored twice for the Wildcats on a 19 yard touchdown pass from Harman and a 11-yard run.

Sean Thompson returned a punt 50 yards for a second quarter touchdown and Shannon Overstreet later took a punt back 62 yards in the third quarter for another score. Both Thompson and Overstreet scored twice in the game. Thompson had a 4-yard touchdown run in the first period. Overstreet also scored in the third on 40-yard interception return. Tyrell Bell had touchdown runs of 45 and 30 yards in the first period for Choctaw as the Yellow Jackets led 20-0 after the opening quarter. BRONCHOS TOPPLE MOUNT ST.

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.

Haws remains hospitalized at OU Medicine’s trauma center, currently paralyzed below his chest. He broke three vertebrae in his back and neck during a football game at Blanchard on Friday night and has already begun to show improvement since that time.
High school football: Hundreds gather at vigil for injured Bethany player Hudson Haws
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Oct 25, 2015BETHANY — On Sunday afternoon, coach Reagan Roof asked all of Bethany's coaches and players to write down one word that described Hudson Haws, and the most popular response is a word that fortifies the entire community's hope for their injured football player. Overachiever. “I've seen it daily in practice and in every game,” Bethany assistant coach Chris Chamberlain said. “He's out there doing things on the football field that he shouldn't physically be able to do.” “If you took measurables like they do at the NFL Combine, he might be the last guy you'd pick. He's not fast and he's not strong, but he's a football player. He's tough and he's smart and he gets things done.” Haws remains hospitalized at OU Medicine's trauma center, currently paralyzed below his chest. He broke three vertebrae in his back and neck during a football game at Blanchard on Friday night and has already begun to show improvement since that time. A few hours after surgery early Saturday morning, Haws regained movement and feeling in his arms, and on Sunday, his strength continued to improve. But the road to a full recovery is a long journey, and there's no guarantee that he'll make it all the way. Yet he'll see no shortage of support from his school and his community. The parking lot at Bethany/SNU Stadium couldn't hold the cars of the hundreds of people who gathered on the football field at a prayer vigil for Haws on Sunday night. The gathering lasted about 45 minutes, and 30 minutes after it ended, people still lingered on the field. Bethany is a unique school in that its district boundaries make up about one-fifth — approximately one square mile — of the town's total area, and the majority of the students transfer in from outside those boundaries. Yet it remains a tight-knit community with a small-town feel despite sitting just a few miles from the heart of downtown Oklahoma City. “This is a community. This is a home,” said Chris Holcomb, Haws' youth pastor at Bethany First Church of the Nazarene, while addressing the crowd Sunday night. “I'm overwhelmed by the love and support I see on this football field tonight.” Support for Haws has reached well outside Bethany, too. Members of football teams at Mount St. Mary, Douglass and other schools were on hand Sunday. In Blanchard, on the field where Haws sustained his injury, the football team organized its own vigil that was held simultaneously with Bethany's service. “We were talking about loading up and going to Bethany,” Blanchard coach Jeff Craig said. “Then one of our parents asked if we could do something at our field for those who couldn't travel up there. “So we just decided to make it a community-wide deal for our people here who wanted to be able to show their support for Hudson.” Roof and Bethany athletic director Phil Brown said they had each been receiving countless calls from coaches and administrators all over the state the last two days. “When tragedy happens, people come through,” Brown said. “A 17-year-old boy facing what he's facing, it's a tragedy. “The people in the community of Bethany really care. And the same for the people around this state. It's just been amazing to see the support for the Haws family.” As his supporters pray for continued healing and reduced swelling of his spinal cord, the next few days will be the most crucial part of his recovery, though the full process will be much longer. “I know Hudson is going to walk out of that hospital,” Roof told the crowd. “It's not gonna be easy. It's not gonna be quick. “But there's nobody more suited for this battle than Hudson Haws.”

The Oklahoman's top 10 high school football games of Week 8
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Oct 18, 2015Last week, half of the list of top 10 games pitted two undefeated teams against each other, yet for Week 8, there is no such meeting to be found. But plenty of big matchups remain, led by a battle of highly ranked Class 2A teams when one-loss Washington hosts undefeated Lindsay. Second on the list are two of Class 5A's best teams, despite each having a loss to No. 1 Lawton MacArthur — by a combined total of three points. And a unique game appears at the bottom of the list. The magnitude of Sequoyah-Claremore at Locust Grove might not appear as big as the others on the list from a standings perspective, but Locust Grove quarterback Mason Fine is 156 yards away from the state's career passing yardage record of 11,357, held by Atoka's L.T. Pfaff and looks to break it in front of the home crowd Friday. Here's a look at The Oklahoman's top 10 games of Week 8: 1. Lindsay (8-0, 4-0) at Washington (6-1, 4-0) 2. Altus (6-1, 3-1) at Ardmore (6-1, 3-1) 3. Broken Arrow (6-1, 4-0) at Jenks (6-0, 4-0) 4. Douglass (5-2, 2-1) at John Marshall (7-0, 3-0) 5. Tulsa Washington (6-0, 4-0) at Bixby (5-2, 3-1) 6. Roland (6-1, 3-0) at Stigler (6-1, 4-0) 7. Coalgate (5-2, 3-0) at Kingston (7-0, 4-0) 8. Bethany (6-1, 2-1) at Blanchard (5-2, 2-1) 9. Antlers (6-1, 3-1) at Hartshorne (6-1, 3-1) 10. Sequoyah-Claremore (3-3, 2-1) at Locust Grove (7-0, 3-0)

High school football: Douglass uses big play late in the game to down Bethany
By Richard Stroud, For The Oklahoman | Oct 16, 2015With the game and perhaps their season on the line, the Douglass Trojans needed a big play late in their District 3A-2 matchup with the undefeated Bethany Bronchos at Miller Stadium on Thursday. They got one from quarterback Patrick McKaufman. On a third-and-9 with just under two minutes left, the senior quarterback reversed field three times and retreated nearly 30 yards before finding Darius Hawkins wide open for the game-clinching 54-yard touchdown pass that helped the Trojans hold on for a 22-14 win. “He made a play,” Douglass coach Willis Alexander said. “That's something you don't draw up.” McKaufman's pass put the final touch on a wild sequence in the final period of what had been a defensive struggle. The Trojans scored on their opening possession of the game and added a field goal early in the second quarter to take a 10-0 lead. But the Bronchos (6-1 overall, 2-1 in District 3A-2) put the clamps on Douglass running back Chris Friday, holding him to 41 yards in the second half after the junior had 125 in the first two quarters. Bethany's offense finally broke through late in the third period. A long punt return gave the Bronchos the ball at the Douglass 29, and Bryton Schmitt found Brock Holliday with a touchdown pass on the first play of the drive to make it 10-7. McKaufman and the Trojans countered with a 59-yard touchdown by Perry Johnson on a third down screen pass to make it 16-7 with 6:23 left. Bethany's Landon Stout immediately countered by returning the ensuing kickoff to the end zone to make it a two-point game. The Douglass offense, stagnant throughout the second half, picked up two first downs to near midfield before McKaufman's scramble and throw created the final margin. Douglass (5-2, 2-1) climbed back into the thick of the district race with the win, forging a three-way tie for second with the Trojans, the Bronchos and Blanchard all one game behind undefeated John Marshall. Douglass travels to John Marshall next Friday. “Every game is big,” Alexander said. “It doesn't matter where you're at in the standings. Every game in district play is important, regardless.” Douglass held Bethany to 206 yards of total offense and forced three interceptions from Schmitt, two of those inside the Trojan 5-yard line. “We pride ourselves on defense,” Alexander said. “They made plays when they had to.”

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.)

Jessica Pounds, Associated Press | Oct 13, 2015“Wow, you’re so young.” That’s what Bethany Anderson, 27, of Newark said she has heard the past 10 years of her life since she began an arduous fight with breast cancer. Anderson shared about the first time doctors discovered an abnormality in her breast during the sixth annual Save the Ta-Ta’Z Art Bra Dinner and Auction on Saturday, sponsored by the Zonta Club of Johnson County. Right after graduating high school, Anderson said her then-boyfriend proposed and the two began planning for a wedding. “Through all the excitement and wedding plans, my mom reminded me that I needed to go to our local health department and set up a time for a full physical,” Anderson said. “I came to this appointment alone, because this was nothing out of the ordinary. Young women get physicals everyday, so I wasn’t expecting to need any kind of support for this day.” During her appointment, Anderson said she remembers the exact moment when she realized something was not right. “The doctor kept mashing, feeling and rubbing one specific place in my left breast and I’ll never forget the pain I felt, or the look of concern in his eyes,” Anderson said. “This exam took a lot longer than any exam I had ever had.” After leaving the room for a few minutes, the doctor came back into the room and told Anderson she needed to go to the hospital for an emergency ultrasound. “He told me he recommended I call someone to go with me to the hospital because he felt a huge mass in my left breast and he was extremely concerned,” Anderson said. “I immediately called my parents and it wasn’t until I heard my mom’s voice that pure panic hit me and tears began flowing down my cheeks.” At the hospital, a radiologist began the ultrasound and tried to keep Anderson comfortable by making small talk. “She asked how old I was and if I had any big plans coming up in the future,” Anderson said. “I told her I had just turned 18 in July and that my wedding was coming up in less than a month. She looked at me with concern and pity in her eyes and her words I will never forget. I never thought I would hear these words over and over again, yet I heard this phrase from that point on, for the next seven years of my life: ‘Wow, you’re so young. I’m so sorry.’” Anderson said she asked the radiologist exactly what it was they were looking at. “She said she couldn’t say for sure without a biopsy, but she did know that I had a mass in my left breast that was over 5 centimeters,” Anderson said. “She then did a biopsy and told me I would hear something the next day.” From that point on, Anderson said it was like the waiting game began and would never end. “Another doctor finally called and told us that this tumor was full blown breast cancer and the mass needed to come out right away because it was so large,” Anderson said. “I went into surgery two weeks before my wedding; the surgery was a success and the tumor was removed. I was told chemotherapy and radiation wasn’t an option because the kind of tumor I had would not respond to it.” Anderson said she was given orders to see her breast oncologist every six months, so that’s what she did. “Every time I went to see my oncologist, I got more bad news,” Anderson said. “They would tell me they felt a mass, they would send me for a mammogram and ultrasound, and then they would schedule surgery. I went through this for seven years; Surgery after surgery. Tumor after tumor.” About a year after getting married, Anderson found out she was expecting a baby, but again had another tumor. “I’ll never forget this particular surgery,” Anderson said. “They could not put me under anesthesia because I was pregnant and I was in my last trimester. I started feeling them cutting on me and I began to scream in pain.” After her son was born, Anderson continued to have more surgeries to get rid of tumors. “It was totally different going through this with a baby added to my family,” Anderson said. “I wasn’t allowed to pick him up and hold him. I had to depend on my family to take care of me and my new baby. I’ll never forget sitting on my mom and dad’s couch with my baby looking up at me, reaching for me and crying because he wanted me to pick him.” Anderson said being a mom brought a whole new strength to her life. “I would get through this no matter what because I had a little boy that would need someone to pick him when he fell, kiss his boo-boos and cheer him on at t-ball and football games,” Anderson said. On Jan. 24, 2013, Anderson finally had a double mastectomy and expanders put inside her chest wall to prepare for future reconstructive surgery. “My parents and our church put on a huge benefit singing to raise money so I could have my last breast surgery ever,” Anderson said. “They wound up raising over $4,000; I was so humbled and excited.” Anderson said she called her plastic surgeon to inform them of how much money was raised only to hear that it wasn’t nearly enough to cover the surgery. “I didn’t let my faith grow weak; God had already brought me this far and I knew it was just a matter of time before he took care of the rest,” Anderson said. “My husband and I prayed and prayed and prayed.” A few days later, Anderson’s phone rang and it was the plastic surgeon’s office. “When I answered, it was the voice of the woman I had been talking to about scheduling the surgery,” Anderson said. “She said, ‘Hello Mrs. Anderson, are you ready to schedule your reconstructive surgery and get those expanders out?’ I said, ‘Well, of course I am, but I don’t have all the money together yet.’ She said, ‘Oh, Mrs. Anderson you haven’t heard?’ She told me that someone came in and paid for my surgery in full.” After triumphing over what seemed to be a never-ending battle, Anderson said she wants both men and women to know that breast cancer is ugly. “Breast cancer does not care who you are, or how much money you make,” Anderson said. “It does not care about your race, your gender, or your age. Tumors grow fast and cancer spreads fast. “But on the flip side of cancer, God doesn’t care about your race, your gender, or your age either. He performed miracle after miracle for me in this long battle and I know he will do it for others just as he did for me.” Zontian Jessica Applegate said Anderson left the crowd with only a few dry eyes. “The speaker touched the entire audience with a profoundly powerful and emotional presentation,” Applegate said. “The Zonta Club of Johnson County would like to thank everyone who helped make the event such a success.” Zonta President Kasey Rachel said more than $25,000 was raised during the event. “I am overwhelmed by how generous our community is — with both their time and finances,” Rachel said. “We are really looking forward to being able to contribute to some amazing organizations and to make a difference in the lives of people in our area that are struggling with breast cancer.

Texas the football team is easy to despise, if you have a mailing address or roots north of the Red River. As the Sooners face off against the Longhorns, some Oklahomans talk about their feelings about Texas, the team and the state.
Berry Tramel: On hating Texas the team, not Texas the state
By Berry Tramel Columnist email@example.com | Oct 9, 2015DALLAS — If Oklahomans hate Texas, we have a funny way of showing it. Texas the state. Not Texas the football team. Texas the football team is easy to despise, if you have a mailing address or roots north of the Red River. The Longhorn Network. Running off Texas A&M and Nebraska from the Big 12. Mack Brown's politicking and the aerial banners during the great Bowl Championship Series debate of 2008. “I hate Texas football,” said OU fan Scott Noland of Edmond. “Their condescending fans, their fight song and their stupid drum. I hate Texas all year, not just for a week.” Noland is referring to this week. The Sooners and Longhorns play Saturday for the 110th time. Playing amid the Texas State Fair for the 87th straight year. Hearing “Texas Fight!” resound repeatedly in the Cotton Bowl, hearing chants of “MobileHoma” (not that Oklahomans don't have their own verbal jabs) drift through the Midway turns Sooner attitudes sour toward the Longhorns. But it doesn't make Oklahomans not want to come back. OU fans stream across the river beginning midweek, turning Dallas/Fort Worth into an Oklahoma colony, spending money in restaurants and hotels and bars, not to mention the fair. That's nothing new. Even without a football game to jolt state pride, Oklahomans love coming to Texas. Taking the kids to Great Wolf Lodge or shopping at the Galleria or riding the boats on San Antonio's RiverWalk or listening to music at Austin City Limits or catching a luxury liner in Galveston. Watching the Cowboys at JerryWorld or the NASCARs at Texas Motor Speedway or the Rangers at the ballpark in Arlington. “Texas is the best state in the union. Period,” said OU fan John Whitaker, of Bethany, who moved back to Oklahoma from Austin in 2014. “They have their crap together. Public education is a priority. No state income taxes. Roads that are in fantastic shape. Parks, greenbelts, public amenities galore. Simply no comparison to Oklahoma in this regard.” Yep, there's some envy involved. Texas has virtually no federal land. Texas has been swiping our oil companies for decades. We've exacted some revenge with state-line casinos, which suck a lot of money north. And Oklahoma City is a major league city, with the Thunder, which has waged memorable playoff series with all three Texas teams in the NBA, winning more than they've lost. “It's kinda funny, the fascination that OU Nation has with Texas,” said OU fan Jim Harris of Sallisaw. “I'd guess there is envy at the heart of the matter. Wealthy state, sixth-largest economy in the world if Texas was its own country, which sometimes it acts like it is.” But the truth is, Texans and Oklahomans are more alike than they are different. “The people? They are the same folks,” Whitaker said. “Mostly the same values. Just different locations.” Then two football teams meet not far from a giant Ferris wheel, and things change. “My hate for Texas stems from the ‘holier-than-thou' mentality,” said OU fan David Paulson, of Yukon. “If everything is bigger and better in Texas, why do we get so many of your elite high school players? Just because the state is the size of a country doesn't mean you're better people.” And Sooner fans remember UT's role in the shaky status of the Big 12. Texas' establishment of The Longhorn Network is blamed by many for the instability of the conference, which has lost four members, while adding two, in the last five years. “They ruined the Southwest Conference, kept half of their compatriots out of the Big 12, then ran off Nebraska, set up a special network deal so that they are the only Big 12 team to get ESPN love and ruined the rest of conference teams' chance for a large, full conference deal,” said OU fan Jay Horsley, who grew up in Oklahoma but now lives in Mulvane, Kan. “They'd leave half the conference (or more) behind again as soon as they could if they could make enough money out of it.” OU's revenge comes on the field. The Sooners are 10-6 against Texas in the Bob Stoops era and are heavy favorites again on Saturday. The Longhorns are 1-4 and have been routed by both Notre Dame and TCU. “I grew up with a hatred for the 'Horns even as OU started dominating them in the early 2000s, which were my high school years,” said OU fan Kory Warren. “But over the last four, five years, it has become more a form of pity, I guess. I want them back to a point because I know the Big 12 needs it, but if we beat them 50-0, doesn't hurt my feelings.” So Interstate 35 will be jammed this weekend with OU fans filing into Dallas and through downtown to get to the fair, where they will spend money and enjoy their stay and enjoy it even more if the Sooners win. The bigger the victory, the better. Then they will reverse their course, and drive home on the crowded freeway that links them to a state to which they readily will return. “I do not hate the state of Texas,” said OU fan Kyle Whitson, of Norman. “Just their traffic.” Berry Tramel: Berry can be reached at (405) 760-8080 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Patriots host Capitol Hill — the only team PC West beat last year — at 7 p.m. Thursday night at Putnam City Stadium, looking for their third win of the season.
High school football: Putnam City West trying to build on first district victory in five years
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Oct 6, 2015BETHANY — Over the last several years, Putnam City West has been part of a lot of football homecoming games. Opponents' homecoming games, that is. When you've averaged one win a year for more than a decade, your team will get picked as the perfect target for an easy win and a big homecoming celebration. But last Friday night, the Patriots spoiled the party in Choctaw, rallying from 21 points down for a 32-21 win. “We all got hyped because we ruined their homecoming,” junior linebacker Deiontae Clark. “But this week is our homecoming, and we don't want ours to get ruined, so all that happiness from last week has to turn into focus for this week.” The Patriots host Capitol Hill — the only team PC West beat last year — at 7 p.m. Thursday night at Putnam City Stadium, looking for their third win of the season. They haven't won more than two games in a season since 2003, when they beat Choctaw, Moore and Yukon in a three-game stretch to end the year after starting 0-7. Friday's win over Choctaw was PC West's first district victory since October 2010, a span of 32 games. However, this win wasn't some sort of fluke, but rather a sign of the positive direction coach Rocky Martin's program is heading. When they fell behind 21-0, a lot of past PC West teams would have promptly accepted defeat. But this team, powered by a talented junior class and some strong-willed senior leaders, stayed in the game. “We got off to a slow start, but we didn't get down on ourselves,” junior quarterback Trey Gooch said. “We rallied around and it turned around for the better. “We have a lot of talent, but our issue has always been our heart and where we are mentally. We know we can do it. It's just a matter of perseverance now.” The Patriots moved into the Class 6A Division II rankings at No. 8 this week, and if they keep playing well, the postseason could become more than just wishful thinking. But this team knows it can't let its focus slip, or victories can quickly turn back to losses. “We know we can't overlook anyone,” linebacker Katrell King said. “Capitol Hill can come beat us, just like we did to Choctaw last week. “The main thing is to stay focused and keep doing what we're doing.”

Over the offseason, coach Lonny Nolen realized his best offensive playmaker was spending too much time distributing the ball to others.
High school football: Meeker's Jake Standlee excels in move to running back
By Scott Wright Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Oct 5, 2015MEEKER — Jake Standlee spent his first three years at Meeker as the starting quarterback, often handing the ball off to a workhorse running back. But as a senior, Standlee is the workhorse running back. Over the offseason, coach Lonny Nolen realized his best offensive playmaker was spending too much time distributing the ball to others. “We moved him from quarterback to running back this year, because he's a breakaway threat every time he touches the ball,” Nolen said. “At quarterback, it was about him trying to get the ball to other guys. “It didn't make as much sense as us trying to get him the ball to make plays.” Standlee, a 6-foot, 180-pound senior, has excelled in his new role. He rushed for 155 yards and two touchdowns, to go with a 75-yard interception return TD in last Friday's 35-21 win over Douglass, earning The Oklahoman's staff selection as the Oklahoma City-area High School Football Player of the Week. The win boosted Meeker (4-1) into the Class 3A top 10 at No. 10 this week. It gives us some confidence going into this week against Blanchard, and the rest of the season,” Standlee said of the win over Douglass. “Considering our tradition before the last few years, we know we're not gonna be up high in the rankings. We like to think we surprise a lot of people, and that's what I enjoy.” It'll be hard for Standlee to surprise many more teams. He's rushed for 1,076 yards on 147 carries and scored 17 total touchdowns — 13 rushing, two receiving and two on interception returns. He's gone over 200 yards in three games, including 288 in a loss to No. 6 Bethany last month. The move to running back was a change, but Standlee made the transition with ease. “It's a different style of running, but he's a tremendous back and a great athlete,” Nolen said. “He's got some good kids around him, but he's what makes our offense go.”

High school football mid-season roundtable: Who will run the table?
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Staff Writers | Oct 4, 2015At the halfway point of the high school football regular season, it's time to look ahead at what could await in the second half. In Sunday's editions, The Oklahoman's high school football writers, Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh, took a look back at the first half. Now, they'll offer projections on a few questions regarding the remainder of the season: Which unbeaten team is most likely to remain undefeated and win a state championship? Wright: I really want to say Jenks in Class 6A-I, considering the Trojans defeated Tulsa Union by 18 in their first meeting. But the regular-season loser in that series often flips the script if they get a title game rematch. So I'll take Wagoner to roll through Class 4A and finish with the gold ball. Last week's 14-7 scare against Cascia Hall might be as close as anyone gets to the Bulldogs until the title game. Unruh: Alex looks unstoppable in Class B one year after it ran the table for the state championship. The defense has allowed just 14 points this season — no more than a touchdown in a game — and the offense has not scored below 44 yet. There just doesn't seem to be much Class B teams can do to slow down the Longhorns. Which team will have the biggest second-half turnaround? Wright: At 2-3, Collinsville could very well win out to go into the 5A playoffs, but the team I expect to see the biggest turnaround from is Oklahoma Christian. The Saints started 0-4 before getting their first win Friday night. They're incredibly young, but the schedule is favorable over the next few weeks, giving them a chance to grow up. It's possible OCS could be 5-4 going into a Week 10 showdown with Luther that could have home-field advantage in the playoffs on the line. Unruh: For the second straight season, Clinton is off to a 1-4 start under coach Phil Koons. Last season, the Red Tornadoes turned that around and even won a first-round playoff game. The schedule sets up the same way for Clinton, which will be favored in its next three games before playing Woodward and Elk City. Which district will have the most exciting playoff race? Wright: Both west districts in Class 5A will be entertaining, and Class B District 1 is going to get wild with Seiling, Turpin, Pioneer, Laverne, Pond Creek-Hunter and a couple others battling for four spots. But keep an eye on 3A-2, where Bethany, John Marshall and Meeker have big wins under their belt. Yet Blanchard and Douglass — each 0-1 in district play — aren't going away anytime soon. Unruh: District 5A-1 has little clarity at this point, and a good team is likely going to miss out on the postseason. Defending state champion Lawton MacArthur has control with a 2-0 start following a narrow win over Altus, but has yet to play other district title contenders Ardmore, Duncan or Del City. Duncan losing to Del City is a big loss for the Demons considering they will likely be underdogs against the remaining contenders. But in this district anything is possible.

This year, the eighth edition, will take place at Newcastle on Sunday at 3 p.m.
OKC Thunder: The Thunder's annual high school scrimmage has left memorable impact in its wake
By Anthony Slater, Staff Writer | Oct 2, 2015Back on Oct. 1, 2010, the Yukon high football team was preparing for a huge district home game against Norman North. The stands were packed. The players were hyped. And the place exploded when that night's honorary team captain — Thunder superstar Kevin Durant — led Yukon to midfield for the opening coin toss. “I tell people, that game was over before it started,” Yukon athletic director David Fisher said, fondly remembering the 35-17 victory. “You should have seen the look on the Norman North coaches and players faces.” Hours before, the Thunder had staged its annual Blue and White scrimmage in Yukon's gym. It was the third edition of what's become an annual event — the state's most popular sports team closing out training camp with an open scrimmage at a local high school. This year, the eighth edition, will take place at Newcastle on Sunday at 3 p.m. For the players, it's little more than the next step in season preparation. But for the communities that have experienced it over the years, it has provided a lasting memory. The Westmoore scrimmage was easily the most impactful. Back in October 2013, with the Moore community still feeling the effects of the May tornado, the Thunder arrived in town to an emotional scene. Before the scrimmage, the team announced its plans to rebuild three outdoor basketball courts destroyed by the storm. The franchise also gathered the boys' and girls' basketball teams from all three Moore high schools and gave them VIP treatment for the day. “We got to sit right behind the benches, and Sam Presti spoke to the teams beforehand about character and some other life skills,” Westmoore boys' coach Scott Hodges said. “That was really neat.” Russell Westbrook was still recovering from knee surgery during that preseason. He didn't participate in the scrimmage. But that freed him up to play team ambassador for the day, interacting and taking pictures with all the students. “He was great at engaging with the kids,” Hodges said. Westbrook said, “Being able to be there and be with the people of Moore was more important than even the scrimmage itself.” The Thunder put up a banner signifying the scrimmage over one of the baskets. The school left it up for two years, until, recently, it was peeling and they were forced to take it down. But a photo from that day remains posted in Westmoore's locker room. It's of the entire Thunder team, in that same locker room, stacking it up for a team huddle before they went out on the court. “Our kids think that's so cool,” Hodges said. “Westbrook and Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka using their lockers.” The Thunder hatched the idea for this tradition upon arrival in Oklahoma City. The plan, according to vice president of marketing and sales Brian Byrnes, was to hit 20 high schools in 20 years. “And if you connect the dots, we would literally circle the entire metro,” Byrnes said. “That was the inspiration.” There was a scrimmage in Bixby a few years back. The Thunder had a preseason game in Tulsa the next night. So it made sense. But beyond that geographic outlier, the franchise has stuck to its plan. The team has held scrimmages in Midwest City, Bethany and, most recently, Choctaw. Sunday's event at Newcastle takes care of the southwest side of the metro. But of the events, the experience at Yukon was the most unique. In deciding where to hold it, Thunder management reaches out to possible candidates. The team needs to make sure the gym is usable for its players and the administration is prepared to handle ticket allotment within the community. When they contacted Yukon in 2010, athletic director David Fisher had the idea of holding it on a Friday afternoon, pairing it with one of the state's biggest high school football games that night. It went over great. “Our arena holds 2,500, and we estimated that we put 3,500 in it and still had 500 we couldn't let in the gym,” Fisher said. After the game, the entire Thunder team crossed the parking lot and showed up at the football game. Fisher, admittedly as a joke, told Durant he should lead the team out of the tunnel and then take part in the coin toss. “He said, ‘Really? You can do that?' Fisher said. “Next thing you know him and the Thunder are at the front of the blow-up football helmet and lead our team out onto the field.” The Thunder's videographer captured the moment. It served as a clip in OKC's pregame hype video for that entire season. “We were immortalized for about a year on the board with our Yukon football helmet,” Fisher said. “It's great to interact with our fans in an intimate setting like that,” Durant said. “It's getting bigger and bigger every single year.”

High school notebook: Lawton MacArthur linebacker could serve maximum of 20 years for home invasion
BY JACOB UNRUH AND SCOTT WRIGHT | Sep 29, 2015The Lawton MacArthur linebacker who played this season while facing criminal charges stemming from a home invasion could spend 20 years in prison unless he successfully completes a rehabilitation program. B.J. Davis, 17, was sentenced Tuesday to 30 years in prison, but 10 years of the sentence was suspended. Davis will be given the opportunity to avoid prison by completing a rehabilitation program as part of Oklahoma’s Youthful Offender Act. Davis, who turns 18 on Jan. 27, has until late June to complete the program, at which time the charges would be dismissed and expunged. He would then be eligible to return to high school for his senior season. If he does not successfully complete the program by the time he is 18 1/2, Davis could be sentenced to a maximum of 20 years in prison. Davis pleaded guilty last week to first-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit robbery with a weapon, first-degree robbery with a weapon and resisting an officer. Davis, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound junior outside linebacker, sat out last season. He played in Lawton Mac’s first three games of this season, but was removed from the team last week after he agreed to a plea deal. According to an affidavit, Davis and Brenan Petit forcibly entered a house on June 18, 2014, where Davis injured a resident by firing a gun through a glass window of a door after initially shoving the gun through the opening. Davis then hit another resident over the head with the gun, and both Davis and Pettit made all three residents get on the ground while passing the gun back and forth, according to the affidavit. Pettit was also sentenced as a youthful offender in December. JOHN MARSHALL'S TRAMONDA MOORE OFFERED BY UCLA Tramonda Moore's list of scholarship offers now reaches from coast to coast. UCLA offered the 6-foot-5, 345-pound John Marshall lineman on Monday, adding to Moore's list of college options. He had been offered by Miami last month, and several top programs throughout the country are pursuing him. Oklahoma State and Oklahoma were the first major programs to offer him in June, and since then Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, Auburn, Arizona State, Missouri and TCU have joined the list of nearly 20 offers. Moore has said he expects to take all five of his official visits and likely won't make a decision until National Signing Day on Feb. 3. BETHANY'S HARRELL WINS THE OKLAHOMAN'S FANS' PLAYER OF THE WEEK Bethany running back Payton Harrell surged to the top of The Oklahoman's Fans' Choice Player of the Week poll in the final hour Tuesday to edge Casady running back William Walter. Harrell finished with 1,048 votes, while Walter finished with 1,015. A total of 3,216 votes were cast for seven different players. Last week, Harrell rushed for 181 yards and two touchdowns as Bethany took down undefeated Meeker 42-33. Walter was The Oklahoman's staff pick for player of the week. Watch NewsOK.com/Varsity on Saturday for the Week 5 poll. Here are the results of this week's poll: Payton Harrell, Bethany: 1,048 votes (32.59 pct.) William Walter, Casady: 1,015 votes (31.56 pct.) Darran Williams, Edmond Santa Fe: 339 votes (10.54 pct.) Montrell Wilson, Millwood: 331 votes (10.29 pct.) Blake Pennington, Crossings Christian: 286 votes (8.89 pct.) Devonte Lee, John Marshall: 166 votes (5.16 pct.) Tabor Johns, Hennessey: 31 votes (0.96 pct.) Total: 3,216 votes CANCER IN REMISSION FOR CROSSINGS CHRISTIAN'S MAYBERRY Crossing Christian senior Ethan Mayberry beat cancer for the second time. Football coach Chris Roberts said Tuesday that Mayberry found out last week that he is remission after being diagnosed a second time this offseason with Hodgkin's lymphoma. “It's just a relief for our kids and excitement for Ethan and his family,” Robert said. “When a kid has cancer, his whole family goes through it, so just excitement for them.” Mayberry missed all of last season with cancer before he fought it off and returned to the team in the winter. He was diagnosed a second time in the spring. Roberts said he does not anticipate Mayberry attempting a comeback this season. “He proved to himself he could do it,” Roberts said. “He came and worked all offseason and then he found out. I think he's just going to concentrate on getting through high school and graduating.” DEL CITY'S WATSON COMFORTABLE AT MISSOURI STATE Del City senior Walter Watson's college choice came down to comfort. The 6-foot-2, 265-pound Watson verbally committed to Missouri State earlier this month after his official visit to the campus went well. “I liked the atmosphere there, and the coaching staff,” Watson said. “I really felt comfortable there.” Watson plays on both the offensive and defensive lines for Del City, but says Missouri State likes him as a defensive tackle. Missouri State has had recent success recruiting Oklahoma, with five players currently on the roster — Darius Joseph from Southmoore, Malik Earl from Edmond Santa Fe, Tre Betts from Sand Springs, Calan Crowder from Bartlesville and Robert Thomas from Tulsa Union. VIAN'S MOSES, RYAN'S CARTER WITH BIG PERFORMANCES If you're looking for point production, Terron Moses of Vian and Grant Carter of Ryan had you covered last Friday night. Moses scored eight touchdowns and had 198 yards in Vian's 61-12 win over Wilburton. Not to be outdone, Ryan's Carter scored nine touchdowns, breaking a school record that was believed to be 75 years old. He had 214 yards on 28 carries in the 68-30 win over Cement in an 8-man clash. But perhaps the most interesting stat from Carter's performance: his touchdown count outnumbered the players in uniform for Cement, which took the field with only eight players suited out.

The Bulldogs are 2-1 entering this weekend’s game against Henderson State (Ark.). SWOSU hasn’t defeated HSU since 2011, but the Bulldogs could be making a habit of changing recent history.
State college football notebook: Southwestern State on the rise
BY CODY STAVENHAGEN | Sep 23, 2015Coach Dan Cocannouer and the Southwestern Oklahoma State Bulldogs wanted to get their message out, and they made it happen in Saturday's 58-38 win against No. 9 Ouachita Baptist (Ark.). Now, SWOSU is hoping there is more where that came from. “The reason we're here is because we work out butts off,” Cocannouer told swosuathletics.com. “We won't let up on them. They know that. When it comes Monday, we'll say, ‘Boys, we're done with this. We got to get ready for the next one.'” The Bulldogs are 2-1 entering this weekend's game against Henderson State (Ark.). SWOSU hasn't defeated HSU since 2011, but the Bulldogs could be making a habit of changing recent history. Last week's win against Ouachita Baptist snapped the Tigers' 12-game regular season winning streak and was SWOSU's first win against the Tigers since the Great American Conference was conceived. “The seniors this year,” running back Karltrell Henderson said, “came into this game saying, ‘This is not how it's going to be. This is our night. This is our game.'” The biggest difference has been an offensive explosion. SWOSU has scored more than 50 points in each of the past two weeks, marking just the second time in school history the Bulldogs have done it in back-to-back games. SWOSU averaged only 17.9 points per game last season, but quarterback Marc Evans is leading the turnaround. Evans was the GAC's co-Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for 365 yards and four touchdowns. Behind a powerful offensive line, Henderson is the conference's third-leading rusher after running for 152 yards and two scores last week. “I think we just got to keep our fire going,” lineman Nathan Butler said. “Keep this confidence but not get too confident. Know that we're good, but we still have a lot to prove.” Central Oklahoma: UCO is 0-3 and continues to struggle with turnovers. After a costly fumble in last week's loss to Emporia State (Kan.), UCO has committed eight turnovers (five fumbles, three interceptions) after turning the ball over only 13 times (eight interceptions, five fumbles) in last year's 8-4 season. Four of UCO's turnovers have come inside the opponents' 3-yard-line. Langston: The Lions overcame a 31-0 halftime deficit, but their comeback fell short in a 40-35 loss to Panhandle State. Panhandle State: Christopher McClendon carried 32 times for 163 yards in the Aggies' win against Langston. Southeastern: The Savage Storm forced five turnovers and got their first win of the season in a 23-17 victory against Oklahoma Baptist. Oklahoma Baptist: OBU is still winless as it heads into a matchup against East Central. However, OBU will be recognized at halftime for winning Learfield Sports Director's Cup. The Cup is presented each year to the best overall college athletic department at each level. The 2014-15 season is OBU's third consecutive year to win the crystal trophy for its success in the NAIA. Bacone: Bacone has lost three games by a combined score of 185-3. Northeastern: Redshirt freshman quarterback Blayne Armstrong made his first career start but left after throwing three interceptions in his first four passes in a 24-17 loss to Missouri Western State. Kevin Pantastico took over and finished 7 of 27 for 106 yards and one score. Northwestern: After leaving with an injury in his last game, Reid Miller returned and threw for 225 yards, but Henderson State beat Northwestern, 35-17. East Central: Quarterback Rocky Moore and the Tigers are coming off a historic performance. Moore earned Great American Conference co-Offensive Player of the Week honors after setting a conference record for completion percentage in a game. Moore was 19-of-22 and had 253 yards and five touchdowns. ECU's 69-0 win against Southern Nazarene was the second-best margin of victory in school history. Southern Nazarene: The Crimson Storm is 0-3 so far, but safety Konnor Bent has been a bright spot on defense. Bent had a career-high 14 tackles with four coming for a loss last week. He leads the team with 32 total tackles STATE COLLEGE SCHEDULE SATURDAY Central Oklahoma (0-3) at Northwest Missouri (3-0), 2:30 p.m., Maryville, Mo.
