High school football: Deer Creek names Jay Wilkinson new coach
By Jacob Unruh Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Apr 12, 2016EDMOND — Jay Wilkinson is returning to the Edmond area to guide Deer Creek as it moves into Class 6A Division II football. The former Central Oklahoma offensive coordinator was named the Antlers' new football coach Tuesday night after gaining approval from the school's board of education. “The challenge of putting a program into those types of situations is exciting,” Wilkinson said. “The non-district schedule is extremely tough, but I think those things are exciting as a coach. Going out there being expected to win every game is its own set of challenges, but being an underdog I take that as a big challenge.” Wilkinson spent the past two seasons as head coach at Coweta, going 12-10 and making the playoffs both years. He replaces Grant Gower, who was named Oklahoma Baptist's offensive coordinator in February after leading Deer Creek for the past eight seasons. Deer Creek athletic director James Edwards said the goal was to find a coach with similar energy and character as Gower. He also found it key to have a coach with Class 6A experience as the Antlers move up a classification. Wilkinson was the offensive coordinator at Broken Arrow before taking over Coweta. He was an assistant and offensive coordinator at Jenks from 2001-2004. He was also the head coach at Metro Christian for two years. “It's somebody who has a vision where he wanted to take the program long term and how he was going to get it there,” Edwards said. “It was just all the pieces were there with Jay.” Wilkinson said he will run Deer Creek's offense and coach the quarterbacks. The Antlers' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jonathan Keathly was named head coach at Watonga on Monday. Wilkinson said he wasn't planning to leave Coweta, which has been upgrading its facilities. But he loved Deer Creek more and more during the interview process. He also had a chance to unite his family in one school, which had been split around the Tulsa metro the past two years. His wife worked downtown and his four children remained in school at Broken Arrow, where the family lived. “That was a little bit of a challenge,” Wilkinson said. “Basically getting everybody to be able to where blue and white and see them throughout the day is pretty exciting for me.” It also helped that Deer Creek is rapidly growing at a pace that could put in in Class 6A-I in the future. “It mimics some of the places we've been on the east side of the state,” Wilkinson said. “It's a pretty unique situation for this side of the state. I think that was a big selling point, just being a one-school district on this side is pretty unique.”

High school notebook: Purcell football coach Scott O'Hara leaves for college track job
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Staff Writers | Mar 26, 2016Purcell will soon hire its fifth head football coach in six years. Scott O'Hara told the school on Friday he is leaving to become head track coach at Southwestern Christian University in Bethany, sources told The Oklahoman. O'Hara was 4-7 in his only season at Purcell, losing to Sulphur in the first round of the playoffs. Since Mike Wilson — the second-winningest coach in Purcell history — stepped down in 2011, the Dragons have been coached by Shannon Watford for one season and Greg Willis for two, prior to O'Hara's hire. OSSAA APPROVES REDUCED CONTACT FOR SPRING FOOTBALL Full contact at Oklahoma high school football spring practices will be reduced to six practices starting in 2017. The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association Board of Directors approved the football committee's recommendation to reduce the number of spring full-contact practices. Teams will still be allowed 10 full-contact practices this spring. Next spring, there will be four fewer days and they cannot occur on consecutive days. Also, schools will be allowed a 21-day period from the conclusion of spring activities for each school to complete spring practices. Currently, schools are allowed 10 practices and they must be completed by June 1. The board also approved language in the football manual that allows use of hand-held dummies and shields during non-pad practices.

Weatherford assistant coach Preston Roof's autism limits some of his physical and mental capabilities, but it cannot restrain his passion ... for his family and for Weatherford football. His dad, Woody Roof, is the team's head coach.
Friday Night Lights: Special father-son coaching duo is at heart of Weatherford football success
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Nov 19, 2015WEATHERFORD — Preston Roof came home one day from his new job with something important to tell his parents. “They call me Coach Roof now, Dad,” he said. Woody Roof — Preston's father, and the most famous coach Roof in this western Oklahoma town — still gets a glow in his eyes when he tells the story of that conversation eight years ago. Being Coach Roof is the most important, most valuable job Preston has ever had. He's never quite as happy as he is when the Friday night lights come on at Eagle Field, he pulls the headset over his worn black Weatherford visor and goes to work coaching the team that means so much to him. He's been eagerly waiting all week for 7:30 p.m. Friday, when the Eagles kick off their Class 4A quarterfinal game against visiting Oologah. Preston Roof is 26 years old. He's in his eighth season as a Weatherford assistant coach after four years as a player for the Eagles. He's also autistic. It limits some of his physical and mental capabilities. It cannot restrain his passion. Passion for his family, and for Weatherford football. And it has never stopped him from affecting lives in an incredibly positive way. “There's not a person I think more highly of than Preston Roof,” said former Weatherford head coach Mickey Seifried, who brought Preston on as his assistant in 2008 and gave him the title of Coach Roof. “He cares so much about the kids on that team. He wants them to succeed so badly, and the kids can tell that. He wants it for them, and they want it for him.” More than a title Last June, it was announced that Woody Roof was returning for his fourth stint as Weatherford's head coach. It was announced by Preston, who broke the news on social media. “Something like that,” Preston said with a grin. There was no way to contain his excitement when his father decided to come back. Preston had played for his father as a senior in 2007, but Woody retired at the end of the year. Preston never had the chance to coach with his dad. More importantly, Woody had never coached alongside Preston. That weighed heavily in Woody's decision to return at age 65. “With the opportunity to come back, and how it all came about, I was debating whether to do it or not,” Woody said. “I've been around the block a few times, so I had to really consider if it was the right thing to do. “Preston was a big influence, talking to me and telling me he thought I could still do it. There's not a more positive person that I've ever been around. He's a true Weatherford Eagle. With him feeling like I could do it, and both of us knowing how fun it would be to be back together, that was a big influence. “And he's helped me. In coaching, you go through the peaks and valleys, and he won't let me stay in that valley for long.” The title of Coach Roof isn't just a label given to Preston because he hangs out at practice and wears a headset on game nights. It's his job. He helps coach receivers and defensive backs. He's on the field working with them and talking to them every day. He's in the meetings and the film study. “He jumped right in and started talking to the players,” Seifried said of Preston's early days on the coaching staff. “He coached the kids, and they listened to him and respected him.” That hasn't changed with the current players. “He means everything to this team,” senior Spencer Ard said. “He picks us up when we need it, and he lets us know when we're slacking. “He's out there messing with us and giving us a hard time. If you slip up, he'll be the first one to let you know. We really feed off his energy, because it's always at the highest level.” Coaching isn't his only job. Preston has worked for several years at the Pizza Hut down the street from the high school. Five days a week, Preston works there through lunch. Then he changes into his coaching gear and joins Woody at the fieldhouse to get busy on the day's work. A coaching family Preston's passion for coaching comes naturally. Woody Roof is one of the most successful coaches in Oklahoma history, with 214 career victories and five state championships, two at Weatherford in 1991-92. He also won titles at Elk City and Watonga, and is one of just 11 Oklahoma coaches to win at least five state championships. Preston's grandfather, Kenneth Roof, was part of 439 wins and seven state titles as an assistant and head coach at Thomas from 1951-87, following his stellar playing career as a running back at Oklahoma State. Kenneth died in January at 89. Some of Preston's favorite memories with his grandfather were when they got the chance to talk football. Maybe they'd sit around at Kenneth's house in Thomas, or head up the road to chat with the other regulars at Miller's Diner. “We'd go down to Miller's and have a Mountain Dew together,” Preston said. “We'd talk Oklahoma State football, Weatherford football, Thomas football.” Kenneth loved his visits from Preston. He'd often call Woody and encourage him to go out to the family farm near Kenneth's home, because it gave Woody a reason to bring Preston to the house. “I'd drop him off, and they'd start talking football,” Woody said. “I'd go out to the farm and come back a couple hours later, and they'd still be sitting there talking about the same things.” Preston is the third of four children for Woody and Lynn Roof. After the oldest son, Adam, was grown and gone, Preston and Woody found themselves outnumbered by the three females in the house — Lynn and Preston's sisters, Megan and Chandler. So they would manage to find their way downstairs for some guy time. “We have a big basement with a big TV,” Woody said. “We go down there and watch some football.” Preston's respect for coaches goes beyond his family. Thomas coaches Bob Ward and Mike Tyson are high on the list. Weatherford football assistants and baseball coaches Charles Teasley and Todd Gaunt have played key roles for Preston, as well. “They've been a very big part of his coaching career,” Woody said. “They took him under their wing. They'd be in football, and when it was over, they'd bring him over to help with baseball. “I owe Mickey Seifried a lot of gratitude, as well, because he was the one who first asked Preston to be part of the program and developing him and giving him that positive environment.” Preston has even become good friends with one of Weatherford's biggest rivals, former Clinton coach Mike Lee. The two met when Preston was about 10. Woody was coaching at Elk City, and before a game at Clinton, he took his son across the field to talk to Lee. “Preston wouldn't even acknowledge me,” Lee said. “He knew I was the enemy. I could tell he was really competitive. But Woody finally got him to speak to me, and over the years, I would see them anytime Weatherford and Clinton would play in anything. “Now, every time Preston sees me, he shakes my hand and gives me a hug. He's a good guy, and he comes from a good family.” Eagle pride Preston doesn't mask his passion for Weatherford football. “When we lost in the state finals in 2002, Preston was just in middle school,” Seifried said. “He cried so hard. It hurt him more than anybody on the team or the coaching staff.” These days, though, Preston is a little more proactive with his displays of emotion. Last Friday, with Weatherford trailing unbeaten Tuttle 21-3 at halftime, Preston addressed the team in the locker room. “He was yelling at us about how we need to have Eagle pride,” senior lineman Dyllan Haworth said. “He just kept telling us we needed to come out in the second half and play for pride, and be a better Eagle.” Weatherford rallied to win 25-21, and the celebration that followed was magical. “He even danced a little,” senior Jay Whitson said. “He's got some pretty good moves.” Preston has a lot of names on the football field. Coach Roof, of course. And Pres, or Presto. Some occasionally refer to him as Echo — “If a coach tells you to do something, Preston's gonna emphasize it with a lot more heart, just to make sure you heard it,” Whitson said. But there's one title that best sums up Preston Roof. “He's the biggest Weatherford Eagle fan there's ever been,” senior receiver Wade Haugen said. “Out of everybody who's ever gone through here, he's our biggest fan. “And he's our biggest motivator, too. He speaks from the heart. We love that he's part of this team.”

High school football: Oklahoma Christian Academy waiting for first ever playoff opponent, location
By Jacob Unruh Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Nov 3, 2015EDMOND — Oklahoma Christian Academy players are accustomed to hitting the road each week. They have no locker room, practice field or stadium on the campus to call their own. For the small private school located in the heart of Edmond, every day is a road trip. But this season they get to add at least one more trip to the schedule. OCA enters this week's non-district game at Newkirk having already sealed the first playoff berth in school history with a chance to clinch the school's first ever winning season. It just has to wait for its playoff destination based on the result of two other District A-5 games. “It's just crazy to think we have a chance to make something happen and extend the season to 15 weeks,” OCA junior Christian Balaban said. “I'm used to just going 10 weeks and then moving on to basketball, but not anymore.” OCA finishes second in the district if Crescent loses to Okeene or Crossings Christian beats Watonga. In that scenario there would be one more game played at Edmond Memorial High School, where OCA plays its home games. OCA finishes third, though, if both Crescent and Watonga win. Either way, it's a big step for the program in just its second year of 11-man football. “Our goals that the kids set at the beginning of the year were to have a winning record, make the playoffs and host a playoff game,” said OCA coach Grey Powell, who is in his third season at the school. “So, here we are in Week 10 with the ability for all three of those things to happen and that's exciting. The thing that's even more exciting about that is now moving forward they'll be able to set goals even higher than that because they know what they can and can't do.” OCA is 5-4 overall behind junior Caleb Powell and sophomore running back Tommy Imbu, a solid improvement over last season's 3-7 finish. Powell is an athletic quarterback and safety who already holds a scholarship offer from Navy. He's accounted for 14 touchdowns, while throwing for 1,046 yards and rushing for 605 in seven games. Imbu is a bruising running back who has rushed for 1,139 yards and 18 TDs. Both will be relied on heavily in the coming weeks, but more importantly in the future as the team continues to build. “If we don't make it past next week, we know that we can do it now,” Powell said. “It's no more questioning whether we can make the playoffs. We can do it. There's no doubt about it.”

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.

High school notebook: Del City QB Terry Wilson invited to Semper Fidelis All-America Game
BY SCOTT WRIGHT | Aug 31, 2015Del City quarterback Terry Wilson received an official invitation to the Semper Fidelis All-America game on Monday. The game is scheduled for Jan. 3, 2016, at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. It will be televised by Fox Sports 1. Verbally committed to Nebraska, Wilson threw for 2,856 yards with 24 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season. BETHANY LOSES PINION FOR SEASON Cole Pinion's senior season couldn't have gotten off to a better start, or come to a more difficult ending — all in a span of 15 minutes. The Bethany senior running back took his first carry of the season 51 yards for a touchdown in the Bronchos' win over Lone Grove last Friday. His second carry went for 26 yards and set up another Bethany TD. But it turns out, Pinion's third carry was his last of the season. Running left along the line of scrimmage, he tried to cut up field and his knee buckled. Monday's tests showed a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, ending his senior year. It's a big blow for Bethany, which defeated No. 8 Lone Grove 34-29 last week. Pinion was a returning starter at running back and linebacker. The Bronchos' senior Dakota Snow and sophomore Payton Harrell combined for more than 100 yards in place of Pinion after he was injured last week. CHOCTAW'S TWO-GAME KICKOFF CLASSIC RETURNS SATURDAY After a great experience with its inaugural event last year, Choctaw High School is set for its second annual XR Tickets Kickoff Classic on Saturday. Choctaw will play host to a high school football doubleheader, starting with Jones vs. Vian at 11 a.m. and Davis vs. Lincoln Christian at 3 p.m. “The teams were really excited to be a part of it again,” Choctaw coach and athletic director Todd Dilbeck said. “We're really proud of this event, and we think it will be great again this year.” Choctaw begins its season with a visit from Sapulpa Friday night. HALSTEAD, MINCO GET OFF TO FAST START Brock Wardlaw's first game as Minco's head coach went about as smoothly as it could have. Wardlaw's Bulldogs opened with a 60-12 road victory over Watonga in Week Zero last Friday, behind a breakout performance from running back Tucker Halstead. The senior had touchdown runs of 19 and 25 yards in the first quarter, ultimately finishing with 183 yards and five touchdowns on 19 carries. Quarterback Hunter Jones was 8-of-12 passing for 128 yards and a touchdown. Shannon Williams added a pair of big plays for Minco as well, returning a kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown, then going 64 yards for a rushing score.

Berry Tramel | Jul 27, 2015[img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]3746730[/img] NASCAR veterans Kenny Schrader and Kenny Wallace will compete Tuesday night at the Longdale Speedway, which is on Highway 58 in the northwest corner of Blaine County, between Fairview and Canton. Longdale Speedway runs International Motor Car Association series, and Wallace and Schrader are scheduled to compete against local drivers. And how I know all this is a good story. At least to me. You can learn a lot by getting in your car and getting out of town. A week ago Friday, I took a road trip to a section of Oklahoma I rarely see but always enjoy. The grandfather of our man Jacob Unruh died, and his funeral was in Cherokee, which is about 20 miles east of Alva. We call Jacob “Virgil” for reasons that are a mystery to me, but we think the world of Virgil and wanted to make sure he knew we were thinking of him. So three of us were able to break away to make the 21/2-hour drive to the service. High school editor Darla Smith, sports web editor Erik Horne and myself. We also gave a ride to Virgil’s wife, who is in nursing school, had some business in OKC that morning and needed a ride to meet her husband. So we launched off from Northwest Expressway and away we went. Out to Okarche and onto Highway 81 north through Kingfisher, Dover, Hennessey, Waukomis and Enid. Darla’s a life-long Yukon gal, so she’s been all over the state, but Erik the Red is from Louisiana and hadn’t been past Okarche. So we gave him an educated tour of that region and eventually gave all of us an educated tour of that region. I always build up Okarche and Kingfisher as my favorite small towns in Oklahoma. Okarche as my favorite tiny town — 2,000 or less population — and Kingfisher as my favorite small town. I just love their feel and their pride. Both are well-kept. Cool, old houses. Not a bunch of shabby homes and buildings falling down. Not every place is spit-shine, but no place, home or business, is a dump. At least from what you can see. A few months ago, I went through Davis, down in southern Oklahoma, and was reminded that Davis can give Kingfisher a run for best small town above 2,000 population, but still, Kingfisher is a cool place. And Erik was duly impressed. We built it up, and Kingfisher delivered. Dover has a better setting, with more trees lining the little town, but it’s run down. Hennessey is a solid town but isn’t quite as well maintained. Not much to Waukomis to maintain. Driving through Enid was fun. For such a big place — population in the 50,000 range — I rarely make it up there. We drove past the Plainsmen’s football field, where Lydell Carr and PJ Mills and Austin Box and Clint Chelf starred, and I should have driven Erik the Red over to the downtown area where Mark Price Arena sits. Enid has to have one of the most unique high school basketball coliseums in America. A civic auditorium, named after an NBA star. Enid’s a lot like Ponca City and Bartlesville, other northern Oklahoma towns that once were the headquarters of major oil companies. Phillips in Bartlesville, Conoco in Ponca, Champlin in Enid. All are big versions of Kingfisher. Well-kept. Lots of pride. Lots of history. Good places to live, if you don’t need a metropolitan city. Champlin was closed in 1984, and Enid has found its footing without a major anchor. The guys in the car made fun of me, because I drew a rough map of our trip. I hate following GPS, or even phone maps, because they don’t give you a big picture. I couldn’t find an old-fashioned road map, so I drew one before we left. Darla made fun of it, took a picture of it and put it on FaceBook. Dirty Rotten Scoundrel. Anyway, north of Enid, I had planned to turn west on Highway 45 and go through Carrier, where my pal Richard Mize recently pastored a Congregational Church, and Goltry and Helena, towns which formed a consolidated school. But I missed that turn, so we went on north and then west on U.S. 64. That took us through Jet and Nash, two more towns that long ago consolidated schools. Not much to Jet or Nash, but I remember from the ‘70s, looking at the scores of Jet-Nash and Helena-Goltry. Now, those two schools and four towns have consolidated into one school. The elementary school is in Jet, the high school is in Helena. It’s 20 miles from Nash to Helena, so that’s a fair drive. But it’s the truth of western Oklahoma. Diminishing population, schools trying to survive. My only knock on Timberlake is the name. Where’s the timber? There’s no timber in northwestern Oklahoma. The lake, I sort of get, since the Great Salt Plains Lake sits just north of Jet. But Timberlake is a good name for a school in Little Dixie or Green Country. How about Salt Plains High School? Or Big Sky High School? Oh well. Driving along U.S. 64, you see Great Salt Plains Lake off to the north. At least you think it’s the lake. It might be the shimmering selenite crystals that form part of the shoreline. The saline content is perhaps a quarter that of ocean water, and the crystals are unique to the area. Visitors dig for the crystals, and Oklahoma maintains a state park as part of the lake. It’s a little like Little Sahara, which is one county over from Alfalfa, in Woods County, between Woodward and Alva, and has magnificent sand dunes that attract motorcycle riders. Barren territory that suddenly draws people. Sand dunes, salt lakes. Oklahoma is an interesting place. Anyway, we drove on into Cherokee and found complete charm. Great small town. Some cool old houses. A good-sized grocery store. Some small businesses. A couple of neat churches. Alfalfa County courthouse. And way more trees than you’d expect in northwest Oklahoma. I seemed to remember that Cherokee had a downtown movie theater that famously burned some years ago. We found a storefront that seemed like it could have been the theater, but I couldn’t be sure. I forgot to ask anyone, and I couldn’t find anything on the Internet, so maybe I’m mixed up. Anyway, Cherokee was a great little town. The service at the First Baptist Church was nice. Virgil spoke about his grandfather and did a great job. A men’s quartet sang, and the four men produced beautiful harmony on both “How Great Thou Art” and “It Is Well With My Soul.” First off, you can’t miss with good material. Two of the top five songs of all-time, and I might be short-changing them. Add in quality voices, then touch it off with the endorsement of Jehovah himself, and it was riveting. I’m not kidding around. It started raining a little as we arrived in Cherokee, and it was raining pretty good when we got out of the car. During the service, it started storming. And I swear, when the quartet sang the first verse of “How Great Thou Art,” at the very point when they belted out “I hear the roaring thunder,” the skies boomed with thunder that shook everyone in the sanctuary, both physically and spiritually. It was the darndest thing. We paid our respects to Virgil, then headed out. I was determined to go home a different way, see more stuff, and it didn’t take us long. I went south out of Cherokee and hooked up with Highway 8. I wanted to go through Fairview, a decent-sized town that I had never visited. We went through Cleo Springs, not much there, but north of Fairview, we passed another Oklahoma jewel — Gloss Mountain. We saw in the distance, off to the west, some beautiful mesas. Didn’t know what they were but eventually found out. The Gloss Mountains, sometimes called the Glass Mountains, according to travelok.com, have a high selenite content that mimics a shiny glass exterior. There’s a state park at Gloss Mountain, with hiking trails, and spectacular scenery. Let me promise you. The landscape in northwestern Oklahoma is underrated. Now you know why they call it Fairview. I had never been to the Major County seat, which has a population of about 2,500. But Fairview had a good football program in the 1980s, and I sort of always followed the Yellowjackets. Plus, I had an extra reason for going. A few years ago, at Mike Gundy’s kickoff golf tournament in Stillwater, I ran into a guy I once knew. Todd Smith played football at Norman High, graduating in 1983, and went to OU on a football scholarship. I covered that 1982 Norman team, and I lost track of Todd after that. But there he was at Karsten Creek that day. Turns out he married a Fairview girl and was running his father-in-law’s car dealership in Fairview. The father-in-law was an OSU booster, so here was an ex-Sooner, at the Gundy Invitational. I enjoyed seeing Todd and told him I’d stop in if I ever was in Fairview. And so I was in Fairview. Todd runs Jensen’s Buick-GMC dealership. It’s a great old art deco building, with lots of vintage signs. Alas, Todd was not in the office, so I left him a note and we were on our way. Fairview seemed like a nice place. Not quite up to Kingfisher’s standards, I’d say, but livable. They’ve got a Sonic, a Pizza Hut and a Taco Mayo. Fairview probably is like much of western Oklahoma, in that it is reeling a little from the oil bust after the great oil boom that created a housing shortage. In Cherokee, we saw a sign for dorm-style lodging that could house 60 workers. But until the price of oil bounces back, that demand has weakened. Fairview actually has three car dealerships. Jensen’s Buick-GMC, Eischen’s Chevrolet (don’t know the relationship to the Okarche landmark) and Vinton Baker Ford. Any place with three new car dealers has something going for it. Leaving Fairview, I was going to go east on Highway 58, then jog back south to Okeene, because going south out of Fairview veered west and was out of the way. But before we turned around, I saw a mileage sign. Longdale 13. And my heart leaped. I swear. I try not to be too sentimental. But I got all fired up. Longdale is where my dad coached high school basketball in the 1950s. I had heard him talk about Longdale all my life, but I had never been there. I knew it was close to Canton, and I once thought about trying to go through Longdale on the way home from Colorado, but it was out of the way, and everybody was tired. So I told Darla and Erik the Red. We’re going to Longdale. Longdale High School is long since closed. I think in the ‘70s. The elementary school closed in 1991. My impression of Longdale was as a ghost town. That nobody and nothing would be there anymore. But I was wrong. Longdale still lives. It’s got a population just under 300, with a couple of gas station/convenience stores and quite a few houses. And the gymnasium still stands. The Longdale gym looks like an old WPA project — heck, it is an old WPA project, we found an inscription — but on the north end is painted a huge mural detailing the history of Longdale. The gym is locked up, but it was cool to walk around the place where my dad coached 60 years ago. We snapped a few pictures, then we were on our way. Seems like in the ‘70s, when I was a kid, some guys from Longdale that had played for my dad dropped by the house, the morning of an OU football game. My dad died in 2007; how I wish I had made the trip to Longdale with him. Anyway, back to NASCAR. As we left Longdale, there suddenly appeared a race track. Glittering. New. I’ve passed a bunch of Oklahoma dirt tracks, and none of them stood out like this. We were stunned. We had no idea what it could be or why it would be. But Darla looked it up on that FaceBook machine of hers, and there came the news. Longdale Speedway. Home of regular racing. Hosting Kenny Schrader and Kenny Wallace on July 28. Turns out, Longdale Speedway is thriving with local racers from all over zipping into town to race on most Saturday nights. Our adventure was mostly over. We drove down to Canton, hit Highway 51 and took it east through Okeene, which I had been to recently. I showed Darla and Erik the Red the great spires atop the St. Anthony Catholic Church. You can’t believe it. Looks like something you’d see in Italy. Then we drove south to Watonga, east back to Kingfisher and finally we were backtracking. We stopped in Okarche at the Popcorn Station, a popcorn store that sits on the north side of the road that runs through Okarche and separates Kingfisher and Canadian counties. Eischen’s Bar, home of the world’s greatest fried chicken, actually is in Canadian County. Then it was back down Highway 3, which becomes Northwest Expressway and the city that seems far removed in more than just miles from Cherokee and the Great Salt Plains Lake and art deco Buick dealership and the old gymnasium where my dad coached 60 years ago. Quite an adventure for a summer’s day.

High school football: Woody Roof to return as Weatherford football coach
By Scott Wright | Jun 2, 2015WEATHERFORD — Woody Roof is set for his fourth go-round as Weatherford’s football coach. Roof was named to the position on Tuesday afternoon, when the school board approved his return to the head coaching position. “I’m really excited,” the 65-year-old Roof said. “I had already decided I was going to retire from the athletic director’s position in December and people kept asking me what I was gonna do. I told ‘em that was a good question. I’m not real good at sitting around twiddling my thumbs. The opportunity to come back and be the head football coach again is exciting.” Roof replaces Dan Kurtenbach, who coached Weatherford the last two seasons, leaving last month to take a coaching position in Texas. Roof has 206 career wins and five state championships, two of which came at Weatherford in 1991-92. He also won two titles at Watonga (1977-78) and one at Elk City (1998). He is one of just 11 coaches in state history to win at least five state championships. Weatherford was a regular state title contender under Roof. His first stint as head coach was from 1985-92, leaving after winning back-to-back titles. He returned from 1999-2003, taking the 2002 team to the state finals. He last served as the team's head coach in 2007, going 8-4, but shifted his focus solely to his role as athletic director after one season. He has an overall record of 122-49 with the Eagles.
