Southmoore's Casey Thompson says OU offer 'took off some pressure'
By Jacob Unruh and Scott Wright Staff Writers email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org | May 19, 2016Southmoore quarterback Casey Thompson waited for the better part of three weeks for the scholarship offer. It finally arrived late Wednesday night, and now there's a chance a family tradition could continue. Oklahoma offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley offered the dual-threat quarterback, a day after Ohio State offered. “Today's offer hasn't shocked me and I'm not into all the hype,” Thompson told The Oklahoman via text message. “From the outside looking in, you wouldn't be able to see a difference in me! I (definitely) wanted it (though) and have been waiting. Just took off some pressure.” Thompson, who is soon to be a junior, is the son of former Oklahoma quarterback Charles Thompson. His older brother Kendal also played for the Sooners from 2011-2013 before transferring to Utah. He said in a text message his dad was excited about the offer. Thompson also said Riley spent extensive time at Southmoore this offseason. Riley watched Thompson throw three times and informed him three weeks ago an offer would come at the end of spring or in the summer. As a sophomore last season, Thompson became the first quarterback in Class 6A history to throw for 2,500 yards and rush for 1,000 in a season. He threw for 2,670 yards and 32 touchdowns with just four interceptions. He rushed for 1,011 yards and 20 scores. He now has 16 offers, including in-state rival Oklahoma State. Iowa State, West Virginia, Penn State and North Carolina each offered since late April. His classmate and offensive lineman Brey Walker committed to the Sooners last November. The 6-foot-6, 300-pound tackle chose OU over Alabama, OSU and Arkansas among others. HERITAGE HALL'S TEVIN MCDANIEL CONCLUDES IMPRESSIVE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP FEAT Heritage Hall senior Tevin McDaniel closed a decorated high school career with quite a flourish over the last two weeks. On May 6, McDaniel ran a leg on the Chargers' 800-meter relay team that won a gold medal at the Class 3A state track meet, and last week, he was on the soccer team that won the Class 5A state title. Those two feats added to his already impressive list of state championship hardware. McDaniel was part of the Chargers' Class 3A basketball title in 2015, and last week's soccer victory gave him two state titles on the pitch. Of course, he played a crucial role as the star running back and defensive end for the football team that won 3A championships the last two years. The son of former John Marshall and OU football standout Michael McDaniel, Tevin is headed to the Air Force Academy to continue his football career. SEVEN OKLAHOMANS NOMINATED FOR ARMY ALL-AMERICAN BOWL Seven Oklahoma high school football players are among the 400 nominated for the U.S. Army All-America Bowl Game. Three players who are committed to Oklahoma and one Oklahoma State commit are on the list. OU commitments Justin Broiles of John Marshall, Tre Brown of Tulsa Union and Levi Draper of Collinsville are among those being considered for the game, along with OSU commit Adrian Wolford of Meeker. Also on the list are Southmoore's Quindon Lewis, Putnam City West's Nick Robinson and Muskogee's Marcus Mays. The selection tour to announce the 90 players chosen to play in the Army All-American Bowl will begin in September. The game is scheduled for Jan. 7 in San Antonio. DEER CREEK'S MITCHELL STONE ADDED TO UNDER ARMOUR ALL-AMERICA GAME Deer Creek junior pitcher Mitchell Stone is heading to Wrigley Field this summer. Stone was announced Wednesday as an addition to the Under Armour All-America baseball game scheduled for July 23 at the iconic stadium. Stone, a 6-foot-9 left-hander committed to Oklahoma State, led Deer Creek to the Class 6A state championship game last week. He pitched seven strong innings during the state quarterfinals and had a pinch-hit home run in the semifinals. He joins Southmoore junior outfielder Conner Uselton in the game. Uselton's participation was announced in January. THOMPSON, O'DELL TOP CANADIAN VALLEY LIST Tuttle's Brantly Thompson and Marlow's Braeden O'Dell were named the MVPs of the Canadian Valley Conference for boys basketball, with Thompson taking the award for the North division and O'Dell for the South.

Illinois State still struggles with last April’s tragedy
By Shannon Ryan, Associated Press | Mar 27, 2016NORMAL, Ill. — Illinois State basketball players walked through a thick fog at dawn last April from their dorms to Redbird Arena. An adamant call from their coach around 6 a.m. had awakened them with orders to meet in an hour. Most expected to hear a teammate had broken a rule and figured they would be running sprints. When they arrived and saw coach Dan Muller’s tear-filled eyes, they knew it was more serious. “Coach stood up in front of everyone and said, ‘There was a plane crash last night,’” guard DeVaughn Akoon-Purcell said. “Those were his first words.” Akoon-Purcell says he remembers scanning the room and noticed the only person missing was associate coach Torrey Ward. “Instantly everyone dropped their heads,” Akoon-Purcell said. “It was complete shock. It was … terrible.” Just hours earlier, Ward, Aaron Leetch, the Redbirds’ deputy athletic director for external operations, and five other men had been traveling from Indianapolis, where they had taken a trip to watch Duke beat Wisconsin for the NCAA Tournament championship. They were due to land shortly after midnight, but their Cessna 414 twin-engine plane crashed upon descent in a bean field just 21/2 miles from the airport. Onboard were Ward, 36; Leetch, 37; Thomas Hileman, 51, the pilot; Andy Butler, 40, a regional representative for Sprint; Scott Bittner, 42, who ran a family-owned meat company; Terry Stralow, 64, owner of a nearby popular pub; and Woodrow “Jason” Jones, 45, a senior vice president/investment officer. All seven perished in the crash, leaving behind five wives, two fiancees and 13 children. Ward’s daughter was born just three weeks after the crash on April 7. The Redbirds wore patches on their jerseys this season of a No. 7 surrounded by all the men’s initials. “Ward” was printed on the back of warm-up shirts. The green No. 3 Alabama-Birmingham jersey he wore as a college player hung in the locker room before games. A stone fountain with seven pillars and the names of the men sits outside the arena as a memorial. “It has become less about the grieving and more about the honoring,” Muller said. “There have been times guys have struggled, the guys who were closest to Torrey. I showed them it was OK to cry. We just try to help each other.” ——— No matter where Ward recruited, he bumped into someone he knew, someone who considered him a friend. He often was seen cellphone to ear, talking to a recruit, high school coach or junior college coach. “He could recruit anywhere in the country,” Muller said. “He knows like a million coaches. It could be in Wyoming and he’d be like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s my guy.’ “He had a thousand ‘guys.’ He just knew everybody, and everybody liked him because of that infectious personality.” Ward was considered a rising star in coaching. His attention to detail on scouting reports impressed Muller, who got to know Ward when they were both Southeastern Conference assistants. He was, Muller and athletic director Larry Lyons said, interviewing for head coaching positions shortly before his death. (EDITORS: BEGIN OPTIONAL TRIM) Ward’s trademark jokes “never ever, ever” got old, Muller said. At least a few times a week, Ward would hike up his sweats to his chest, pull the drawstring around his neck, flip his cap backward and strut into Muller’s office. The stunt was so much part of Ward’s persona, the more-serious Muller played this character as part of the eulogy at Ward’s funeral. “Torrey had a smile that just made people smile,” Muller said with a laugh just thinking about it. “It comes easily, it comes often. It just makes you feel good.” His jokes put players at ease and helped them open up to him about shooting slumps or family problems. Many called him an older brother, father figure or best friend. (END OPTIONAL TRIM) “I could be having the worst practice in the world and he would just do something like go into dance mode and make me start laughing, and it would just change my whole practice,” said Akoon-Purcell, who had “T. Ward” tattooed on his wrist. “He was the only person who could understand where I was coming from, even when I was wrong.” The cruel irony is that now the one they relied on for advice and solace is not here when they need him most. “Now I just think, what would he tell me?” Akoon-Purcell said. “I can hear his voice. I just try to use that to help me get through stuff.” The months before his death, Ward was a bundle of nerves and excitement anticipating the birth of a baby with his fiancee. He had two children, Torrey and Tamia, from a previous marriage. “He made it to every doctor appointment he could,” fiancee Johnene Beisel said. “He was always rubbing my belly. He would’ve just eaten her up.” ——— Leetch got so caught up in football games he often wandered away from others on the sideline and watched from a crouched position at the 20-yard-line, where he could get a better view of red-zone plays. Always the 20. “Someone makes a great catch right in front of him and he runs back to us and it was, ‘I could have made that,’ ” Lyons said. Leetch’s ties to Illinois State were strong enough to lure him back for a second stint. He first was hired in 2005 and worked his way up to senior associate AD by 2008. He left in 2011 to become athletic director at Division III Whitworth University in Spokane, Wash., before returning to Illinois State in 2013. “He had a gift,” said Lyons, who envisioned Leetch one day taking over his job. “His gift was developing relationships.” But nothing was as important to Leetch as his Christian faith and his family. He loved to play golf with daughter Avery, 7, and flew across the country to be there for the first day of preschool for his daughter Emmersen, 5. On one of the last full days the family spent together, they flew kites in the front yard. “They miss him terribly,” said Lindsay, his wife of 10 years. “He was so hands-on. He always made time for any of their things.” When Illinois State held a ceremony before a packed season-opening football game on Sept. 12 — Leetch’s birthday — Lindsay went to a place she felt connected to her husband. “I’ve had to carve out pieces of closure,” she said. “At the football game, they were gracious and let me stand on the 20. I felt like I was doing it for Aaron.” ——— (EDITORS: BEGIN OPTIONAL TRIM) Ward’s last tweet was a collage of photos: the crowd at the championship game, Lucas Oil Stadium and the plane with the caption “My ride to the game wasn’t bad.” The plane was scheduled to land shortly after midnight as dense fog settled in around Bloomington-Normal. The National Transportation Safety Board still is investigating the crash. When they learned of the crash, Beisel and Joan Stralow, Terry’s wife, drove around through the fog futilely searching for the site. “My heart just dropped,” Beisel said. “A lot of it was a blur.” Lyons drove to the airport to identify cars to figure out who was on the flight. On his way to the arena to meet with players, Muller received a call from Ward’s mom, Janice, and delivered the tragic news. At the arena, Muller brought a pastor into the locker room and counselors were available. He made that day’s workout optional, yet every player stayed. “We were all like Coach Ward would want us to do it,” guard Justin McCloud said. “We were grateful just to be on this earth and to play basketball.” ——— (END OPTIONAL TRIM) Ward told Beisel he didn’t want to know the sex or select a name for their baby until she delivered. Three weeks after the crash, Beisel had a girl: Audrey La’Kendrick Ward. She has her dad’s middle name, smile, raised eyebrows and always-on personality. “This is all I have. I held on to that,” Beisel said. “I went into mom mode. I just pushed through. It was so hard, but I received the gift of motherhood. I look at her every day and see him.” They stayed with the Mullers until Audrey was 3 months old. Beisel calls their support “a blessing.” Now living in Maryland, Beisel collects items for a “daddy box” and savors memories to share one day with Audrey. “He was an amazing father,” she said. Lindsay Leetch talks about Aaron often with their girls. “They have a very good understanding of where he is,” she said. “He is in heaven. We’ve leaned heavily on our faith. We still talk about him a lot and weave him into conversations.” The wives and fiancees will gather in Normal on April 7. They plan to share memories, draw support and release balloons. The basketball team will remember the day privately. Muller said he knows new players will come into the program, ones who didn’t know Ward. But the legacy of Ward, Leetch and the others will be carried on. “The program is about the players,” Muller said. “At some point, there won’t be any players here who knew Torrey, but he always will be a part of me. He always will be part of this program.” ——— ©2016 Chicago Tribune Visit the Chicago Tribune at www.chicagotribune.com Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC. ————— ARCHIVE PHOTOS on Tribune News Service (for help with images, contact 312-222-4194): Illinois State Muller _____ Topics: g000065560,g000362661,g000066164,g000065659

Source: Oklahoma High School Sports Historical Society DID YOU KNOW? State Fair Arena was built as part of a $7.5 million bond issue passed in Nov. 1962. It also provided funds to build a downtown coliseum and modify Municipal Auditorium (now the Civic Center Music Hall). The first event held at State Fair Arena was not basketball. It was the Ice Capades, held Sept. 25-29, 1965. The first basketball games at the arena were held Dec. 1, 1965. As part of a men's college basketball doubleheader, Oklahoma City University defeated Oklahoma in their first meeting since 1918, 74-71, and St. Louis defeated Oklahoma State, 61-57. The first high school basketball game at the arena was March 10, 1966. It was a Class A girls game, and Atoka defeated Sayre 49-38. The first high school basketball state championship game at the arena was March 12, 1966. Deer Creek defeated Woodland 41-31 for the Class C girls title. Source: Oklahoma High School Sports Historical Society WHY IS IT CALLED THE BIG HOUSE? State Fair Arena got its nickname thanks to a pair of Oklahoma high school coaching legends. Charlie Heatly was coaching girls basketball at Lindsay in 1968. He was only a decade into a four-decade stint, but he'd already won one state title and would soon win another. One of his assistants that season: Joe Tunnel. Tunnel would go on to be one of the best high school football coaches in our state's history, but back then, he was only a decade into his head coaching career. Part of his duties at Lindsay included being a girls basketball assistant. A few days after Lindsay qualified for state, Tunnel walked up to Heatly and said, "Looks like you made it to the Big House." Heatly had never heard State Fair Arena called that, but it resonated with him. Over the next couple years, he'd refer to the Big House often. He'd tell his team, "We're three games from the Big House" or "Only a half left until we punch our ticket to the Big House." One day, Heatly's friend and sporting goods salesman Dick Noble told him that he'd been awarded the activities association's contract to sell apparel at the state basketball tournament. Noble asked if he had any suggestions for what to print on them; Heatly always seemed to be coming up with clever sayings. "You've made it to the Big House" was his suggestion. Noble used it, and those shirts became best-sellers. It wasn't long before teams were dreaming about playing in the Big House, fans were talking about going to the Big House and even the PA announcer was welcoming everyone to the Big House. That has remained the same for almost five decades. Editor's note: This is the story told by Heatly to legendary Oklahoman high school sports reporter Ray Soldan.

Watching Super Bowl MVP Von Miller terrorize the Carolina Panthers on Sunday gave Eddie Paul flashbacks — in a good way.
Prep Parade: Eddie Paul watched the Super Bowl with unique sense of pride
By Scott Wright Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Feb 10, 2016MOORE — Watching Super Bowl MVP Von Miller terrorize the Carolina Panthers on Sunday gave Eddie Paul flashbacks — in a good way. Long before Miller was a star defensive end for the Denver Broncos, he was an up-and-coming high school talent in DeSoto, Texas, at the same time Paul was coaching the offensive line there. “He was fast,” said Paul, who has coached for 43 years, mostly in Oklahoma. “For our guys in practice, it was a chore just trying to get a hand on him. But he made our offensive line better. We weren’t gonna face anybody better than him.” Paul was either a head coach or assistant at Plainview, Lindsay, Woodward, Clinton, Bethel, Enid, Yukon and Velma-Alma, along with Texas stops at DeSoto and Azle. And he served as Norman North’s athletic director until last summer. Now, he's coaching and teaching at Southridge Junior High in Moore. While at DeSoto, he worked under former Clinton coach Dave Meadows as the offensive line coach and offseason coordinator. Seeing one of his former players with such an impressive performance on football's biggest stage, Paul couldn't help but feel proud. “Von was a great athlete, a tough kid. He worked hard,” Paul said. “Watching him play the way he did in the Super Bowl, it makes your chest puff out a little bit.” JOHN MARSHALL'S BROILES ADDING OFFERS It's been a busy week on the recruiting front for John Marshall defensive back Justin Broiles. The 6-foot, 170-pound cornerback picked up scholarship offers from Kansas State and Nebraska this week. Tulsa and Arkansas State had previously offered the John Marshall junior. Broiles had an outstanding performance last month at the U.S. Army Underclassmen Combine, with 247Sports.com selecting him as one of five defensive backs on the all-combine team. Oregon and Miami were among the programs to pay him a visit in the weeks after the combine. The 2017 recruiting class in Oklahoma looks to be particularly strong at defensive back. In addition to Broiles, Tulsa Union's Tre Brown has piled up multiple offers recently. The Midwest City duo of Evan Fields and Demontre Gatewood were each invited to Nike's top recruiting camp, The Opening. OCS' Caleb Powell has an early offer from Navy as well. LONG COMMUTE DOESN'T DERAIL CIOCCA'S COLLEGE GOAL Julia Ciocca has spent most days the last three years driving from her family's home in Lawton to Oklahoma City, where she attends Mount St. Mary and is a competitive rower with OKC Riversport junior crew. All those hours on the highway are going to be paid off with an Ivy League education. Ciocca is headed to the University of Pennsylvania to be a part of their rowing team. She became interested in the sport when she was young living in Rhode Island, but wondered how she'd be able to continue when her father's military career sent him to Lawton. Soon, the family learned about OKC Riversport, and she began making the 90-minute trip daily for school and practice with her mother, who works in Oklahoma City. Three years later, she's college-bound. “I am incredibly excited to attend the University of Pennsylvania,” Ciocca said in a press release from OKC Riversport. “It has been a lifelong dream of mine. Now, being a student-athlete, I get to look forward to not just having that dream become a reality, but also getting to continue my passion for rowing at the next level." COLLEGE POSTCARD: UCO'S AILEY NAMED MIAA WRESTLER OF THE WEEK Central Oklahoma wrestler Joshua Ailey was named the Mid-American Intercollegiate Athletics Association Wrestler of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday. Ailey, a Tonkawa native and UCO junior, scored two first-period falls to help the Bronchos to a pair of road wins in Colorado last week. For the season, Ailey is 17-7 with a team-high 11 pins, nine of which have come in the first period. UCO will be at the MIAA Tournament Sunday in St. Charles, Mo. PIEDMONT NAMES MUSKOGEE'S COLEMAN SOFTBALL COACH Longtime Muskogee softball coach Keith Coleman was named the new Piedmont softball coach Monday night, according to the Muskogee Phoenix. Coleman replaces Rick Scott, who resigned in the fall and was not allowed to later rescind his resignation. Scott had coached the Wildcats for 15 seasons, 10 of which ended in the state tournament. Coleman had a lot of success at Muskogee in both slowpitch and fastpitch. He took the Roughers to the state tournament a combined 11 times, winning the 2009 slowpitch state championship. “It's not easy. I've always been a Rougher,” Coleman, a 1997 Muskogee graduate, told the Muskogee Phoenix. “And it wasn't easy telling the girls today. I've had a lot of great relationships here and I think we've still got a tradition and players to continue on what we've all been able to establish. And that hasn't been the work of just one coach or player.” Jacob Unruh contributed to this report.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch Benjamin Hochman column
Benjamin Hochman, Associated Press | Feb 6, 2016Four scores in what seemed like seven years ago. Entering Thursday’s game, the Blues had netted just four goals since Jan. 20. And though the lengthy All-Star break was during that duration, it just made more days minus momentum. Back on their home ice Thursday, the Blues sputtered, scoring a lone goal in another loss. Can this team even nab home ice in the first round of the playoffs? That’s a fear, as St. Louis stands in third place in the Central Division. As of now, this team plays too tight and cannot click offensively to be a factor when it matters most. And as teams such as Anaheim and Colorado continue to improve, one wonders if it’ll be deja Blues all over again in the postseason. That is all so weird, because only four NHL teams entered Friday with more points than the Blues. Fans of most teams would take a John Scott punch to the face if it meant that spot in the overall standings. But has a team this high in the standings ever had so little optimism? Ask a St. Louis fan (or St. Louis columnist) about this team, and he or she can go on and on about the troubles of a team with a star suddenly silenced, a high-priced center without stats and other infuriating aspects. The pressure is forever on coach Ken Hitchcock, a proven winner who must cook up some recipe to get through this funk. Maybe it’s simply having the slumping Wild come to town Saturday (and what a fun way for the Blues to get back on track, by beating their budding rival and postseason foe). And after that, wimpy Winnipeg comes to Scottrade. But if the Blues can’t be resuscitated against these two teams, one wonders if that home ice won’t happen. Seven of the following 11 games are on the road. It’s February, but they must start playing with April urgency, or there won’t be May. Tough to read • Sometimes, it’s not how it’s said, but who says it. It was powerful to read the quotes Friday from Johnny Manziel’s father in the Dallas Morning News. “I truly believe if they can’t get him help,” Paul Manziel said, “he won’t live to see his 24th birthday.” To hear that from the quarterback’s father stops you in your tracks. For the father to say this to a reporter — to make the conscious decision to share this thought with the nation — is significant. It is so scary and sad that it’s gotten to this point, and it’s a reminder that so many people in our world suffer from addiction, and get caught up in a lifestyle that can be intoxicating and toxic. I hope Paul Manziel wasn’t ashamed for his stunning admission about his son. Hopefully his message reaches Johnny. I’ll tell you, it’s mind-blowing that the question isn’t now: Will Johnny make it in the NFL? … but, will Johnny even make it? And I suppose, to bring it back to St. Louis, another question would be: Is there someone you know who could use your support, so his or her father won’t ever have to make a haunting prediction, like Johnny Manziel’s dad did? Swann Song • Only two players in St. Louis professional soccer history to have their number retired: Daryl Doran (No. 7) and the late, great Slobo Ilijevski (No. 30). The Ambush will add a third member to this Astroturf’d fraternity: goalkeeper Jamie Swanner. His No. 00 will retired at halftime Feb. 26 at Family Arena. Mark your calender. Currently the Ambush’s goalkeeper coach, Swanner played six seasons with the Ambush from 1994-2000, and was vital in the team winning St. Louis’ lone professional soccer league championship, in 1995. Swanner attended Southwest High School in St. Louis and later played for the U.S. Olympic team in 1984. He tallied 296 wins in his indoor soccer career, including 10 shutouts, which is incredible to me, since it’s hard to imagine any pro team going goal-less in an entire indoor game. Though Swanner’s No. 00 will be forever retired, perhaps the most-memorable No. 00 in St. Louis history was back in 1993, the season Cardinals pitcher Omar Olivares wore his initials on his back. Telling the truth • The talented writer Lindsay Adler, of Buzzfeed, covered an event this week featuring Dr. Bennet Omalu. He’s the doctor whom Will Smith portrayed in “Concussion,” the doctor who first found the neurodegenerative disease known as CTE in a former football player’s brain. Omalu said at the event, held two miles from where Sunday’s Super Bowl will be played, that he believes pro football players have a more than 90 percent chance of suffering from CTE. Earlier this week, you might recall, the late quarterback Kenny Stabler was diagnosed with CTE. “There is no safe blow to your head,” Omalu said at the event. “Just like there is no safe cigarette.” Asked about banning the sport of football, Omalu said: “This is America. We don’t ban anything. I will defend your right to take a gun to your own head, but you should at least understand the reality ...” “I just want parents to be educated. If you put your kid in football … you are robbing your child of his intellectual capacity.” Hammerin’ Harper • On a lighter note, this is just eerie. As tweeted by @theaceofspaeder, known online as the “Ace of MLB Stats,” in Hank Aaron’s first four seasons, from 1954-57, he had an on-base plus slugging percentage of .902, and an OPS+ of 143. In Bryce Harper’s first four seasons, from 2012-2015, he had an on-base plus slugging percentage of .902, and an OPS+ of 143. Hoop history? • This is bonkers. Entering Friday, the Golden State Warriors (four) and the San Antonio Spurs (eight) had a combined 12 losses. Are you aware of this? It’s incredible. Consider that the third-best team in the Western Conference, the Oklahoma City Thunder, have 13 losses. As do LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers. Happy birthday, Babe • And finally, George Herman Ruth was born on this day in 1895, which reminded me of one of my favorite baseball stories. The Babe, of course, was extremely popular and lived larger than life, deeming details superfluous. As explained in the book “Baseball Anecdotes,” the great Waite Hoyt was traded to Detroit in 1930. After spending 11 seasons as Hoyt’s teammate, in both Boston and New York, Ruth shook Waite’s hand the day of the trade, and then the Babe solemnly said: “Goodbye, Walter.” Benjamin Hochman @hochman on Twitter email@example.com ——— ©2016 the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Visit the St. Louis Post-Dispatch at www.stltoday.com Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC. _____ Topics: t000003554,t000003183

Proposal to require Ohio coaches to receive cardiac training
Associated Press | Dec 19, 2015COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A former high school football coach who is now an Ohio state senator is calling for more coaches to receive training on recognizing possible heart conditions. Cliff Hite, who coached Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger at Findlay High School, plans to introduce a bill requiring that school coaches receive training on cardiac conditions at least once every three years. "I wish I had known then what I know now," said Hite, now a Republican state senator from northwestern Ohio. "Thank God, I didn't lose a kid. I'm just amazed now. When you look back, when I coached for 30 years, I didn't lose a kid. But I could have." Hite said he initially believed that if a student athlete showed signs of weakness on the field, he may have pushed that student even harder. The bill also would mandate schools provide information on potential symptoms and warning signs. Coaches would be forced to remove students whenever they suspect a problem and that student would have to then be cleared by a cardiologist. An estimated one of every 100 student athletes are believed to have an undetected cardiac condition. "As a society we've taken measures to protect our kids' heads, but what about their hearts?" asked Lindsay Davis, a former Miss Ohio whose own heart condition initially went undiagnosed when she was a young ballerina.

Lexington honors Nick Faught each game the best way it knows how: by making sure he’s still with them seven months after his shocking death from an autopsy described as "binge drinking."
Friday Night Lights: The power of 12 a driving force for Lexington
By Jacob Unruh Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Oct 29, 2015LEXINGTON — Ten Lexington players walk onto the field each Friday night determined to accomplish what they normally would with 11, for just one play. Lexington returns to a full lineup on the next play, but the missing player remains on the mind of everyone involved with Lexington football. The No. 12 belonged to Nick Faught, a two-way starter as a freshman last season. His number adorns the left side of each helmet, T-shirts, a banner and on the jersey the captains carry on the field for the pregame coin toss. Lexington honors Faught each game the best way it knows how: by making sure he's still with them seven months after his shocking death from an autopsy described as "binge drinking." “I feel like we all feel him out there with us," said Lexington senior Nathan Ford. Everyone coming out here to cheer for us, it all seems like we all get a sense of Nick back.” Faught, 15, died March 29. Two adults — Tonya Lynne Moss, 32, and Justin Moore, 34 — were arrested and charged with allowing a person under 21 to possess or consume alcohol or drugs. Friday's game vs. Dibble will be Lexington's last at home of the season, the final time the team will get to honor Faught in front of the community that has rallied since his death. “We gain a lot from keeping his spirit alive to where it's not just something that happened,” assistant coach Russell Price said. “Yes, it happened but there was a lesson to be learned from it. We hope that these guys and everybody else learns something from it. A SPLIT LEGACY Faught would have been an impact player for the Bulldogs as a free safety and wide receiver. He had the athleticism, the strong work ethic and the charisma to be a star. He also played baseball, was in the FFA and was even about to dabble in bull riding. “I bet I heard six kids tell me that Nick was their best friend,” said Lexington coach Jeff Hall, who was the high school principal last school year. “Think about that. Are there six people in your life that would say he's my best friend? There's not in mine. Nick had six tell me that. That tells you a lot about the kid.” Yet something was different March 28. Faught had planned to attend a birthday party. According to his mom, Heather Lawson, Faught exchanged text messages that day with a friend who begged him not to go and asked why he even wanted to. His response: He had never had the chance before. Later that evening, Faught and another friend arrived at the party. According to the autopsy, Faught was drinking too much and suffered from nausea and vomiting before becoming unresponsive. “There's no excuse, but Nick wasn't that kid," Faught's father, David, said. "I don't know what the circumstances were, but I hate that that's what got him because he wasn't that kid.” According to an affidavit, Moss came home early the next morning from a casino when Faught was unresponsive. She then performed CPR unsuccessfully, but left the scene with Moore before authorities arrived. They later lied about being there earlier. Moss eventually told the authorities she became scared and left because a “little boy had just died in my house.” They were arrested on March 31. Moss also faces charges of child neglect and possession of firearms after conviction or during probation. Moore also faces charges of carrying weapons and knowingly concealing stolen property. Both await their district court arraignment. Since the accident, the Lexington football team has become outspoken against underage drinking. Three times since March, Hall has been alerted about parties that he in turn has alerted his law enforcement contacts to get the party shut down. On the night of Faught's funeral, rumors spread of a party happening somewhere. Hall and his staff drove around until 4:30 a.m. unsuccessfully searching for it. “I don't think we really care," Ford said, referring to the possibility of students getting upset. "We're just watching out for everyone.” FRIENDLY FOES Most of Lexington's opponents haven't even noticed the team lining up with just 10 players. Three weeks ago, however, Lindsay coach John Inman quickly figured out why that was happening. He decided his team would line up with 10 as well. “It was a move that we felt like having lost some kids from our program in the past it's really tough to deal with and it's a very, very small token,” Inman said. “We felt like in honor of him that it was certainly the least we can do.” When a coach doesn't know, though, it doesn't exactly end well. Take the Sept. 25 game against Washington, which scored on the first play when the play call went right at Faught's vacant spot. Warriors coach Brad Beller later learned why the defense was short one player. “I was going, ‘Oh my gosh, what an idiot,'” Beller said. “I felt so bad. I wanted to call (Hall) and apologize, but honestly I was too embarrassed to call him. Oh, I felt bad.” A TOWN UNITED Faught's death was the third high school student to die last year — two of which came in separate car accidents. Friday night has since become a time to come together. "I don't know that we've healed," Hall said. "Every game is hard.” The football team plans to line up with 10 players on the opening play of each game through what would have been Faught's senior year in the 2017 season. Much like the banner the players carry says, Faught will be forever remembered. “It makes me feel good for Nick, it makes me sad but overall I'd say it's a good feeling because the 11th guy obviously would have been Nick,” David said. “I think if he is watching, I think that would make him smile. If he's happy, I'm happy.”

On Friday night, while most cross country runners were resting on couches across the state, Schmidt was set to serve as the Warriors’ placekicker in a crucial District 3A-3 showdown with unbeaten rival Lindsay.
High school cross country: Aubrey Schmidt's feet staying busy for Washington
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Oct 23, 2015SHAWNEE — This has to be one of the most important weekends ever for Aubrey Schmidt's feet. The Washington sophomore will compete in the Class 3A girls cross country state meet Saturday morning at Gordon Cooper Technology Center, hoping to improve on her regional-winning time from a week ago. But on Friday night, while most cross country runners were resting on couches across the state, Schmidt was set to serve as the Warriors' placekicker in a crucial District 3A-3 showdown with unbeaten rival Lindsay. “She just jumps into everything she does,” Washington football coach Brad Beller said. “That's why she's successful at everything she does.” The phrase “everything she does,” is a broad statement when discussing Schmidt. The daughter of Oklahoma strength and conditioning coach Jerry Schmidt, she was already playing club soccer, which requires two or three practices per week, and running cross country before joining the football team about a month ago. “She came in one day when she had the day off in cross country,” Beller said. “Our kicker had been hurt, and she asked if she could go out and kick. “The next day, she offered to be our kicker if we wanted her to. We called her dad to ask if it was OK, and he said it was.” Around football all her life, Aubrey had been messing around kicking footballs since she was young, and has hit field goals from 35 yards in practice. She's made several extra-point tries in games, but her only field goal attempt was wiped out by a false start. Working out the practice schedules hasn't been an issue, since her cross country coach is Kami Beller, Brad's wife. “They usually figure it out before I have a chance to think about it,” Aubrey said. “I enjoy doing both, and want to do whatever I can to help out.” With the Class 2A, 3A and 4A state meets set to start at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Kami Beller was hoping to see Aubrey spending lots of time seated on the bench, rather than standing along the sideline Friday night. “We try whatever we can to keep her legs fresh,” Kami Beller said. “She's a very busy girl, and she constantly pushes herself.” Finding time to rest doesn't always come naturally for Aubrey. “My mom always says sleep is the best recovery,” Aubrey said. “I want to run a personal record on Saturday, so we'll see how it goes. “I think doing multiple things has helped me maintain balance in my life, and it's shown me how to manage my time. “I think it's been good for me.”

High school notebook: Capitol Hill field celebration Sunday
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Staff Writers | Oct 21, 2015Fields & Futures, along with Oklahoma City Public Schools and Capitol Hill High School, will celebrate the opening of new athletic fields at Capitol Hill in a special event from 2-4 p.m. on Sunday. The celebration was originally scheduled for September, but had to be rescheduled. The school has new baseball, softball and football/soccer practice fields as part of the Fields & Futures endeavor to increase athletic participation throughout OKCPS. Sunday's festivities will include free inflatable games, face painting, cotton candy, snow cones, on-field activities and special appearances by Energy FC coach Jimmy Nielsen and Energy players. The event is supported by the Oklahoma Army National Guard. Other special guests include Telemundo Oklahoma sports anchor, Jose Polanco and KWTV-9's Kelly Ogle. Field sponsors include SandRidge Energy and Chickasaw Nation. WASHINGTON, LINDSAY PREPPING FOR RIVALRY Because of the proximity of the communities, Washington and Purcell have always had a natural football rivalry, but the teams are in different classes, so the game is more about pride. Yet over the last few years, Washington and Lindsay have developed quite a rivalry in Class 2A. “The last four years or so, when we've played, it's either been for the lead in the district or for the outright district title,” Washington coach Brad Beller said. Similar stakes are on the line this week between two teams still unbeaten in District 2A-3 and ranked in the top 10. Walters also remains undefeated, with both Washington and Lindsay on the schedule the final two weeks of the regular season. Washington has bounced back strong from a Week 3 loss to Marlow — the Warriors' third consecutive game against a 3A team at the time. Lindsay has battled injuries in recent weeks, but looks to be getting healthy in time for Friday's showdown at Washington. BANGED-UP DEER CREEK ENTERING CRUCIAL STRETCH Deer Creek has been dealing with injuries throughout the entire football season, some of which started in the preseason. The total is approaching critical levels with 22 players on the injured list for the Antlers as they prepare to host District 5A-2 rival Carl Albert on Friday in a game that opens a three-game stretch that can make or break the season. When asked if his team had started to mend, coach Grant Gower couldn't help but laugh. “I can't make this number up,” Gower said. “We have 22 on the injured list right now. Isn't' that crazy? At some point we've had about nine or 10 that have started at some point either last year, this year.” Deer Creek lost defensive standout Jacob Schimmels in the preseason. Receiver Noah McGraw has yet to play due to an injury, though Deer Creek hopes he returns in the next three weeks. Gower also said the inside linebacker position has taken multiple hits to injuries. He said he didn't want to make excuses for the 4-3 season, which includes a surprising loss to Western Heights. But he also said he would be lying if he said it didn't have an impact. “I'm never going to make excuses,” Gower said. “That's just not who I am. We never make excuses because the 11 guys between the lines on every play, they're going to go play hard and give the best they can. Would it be beneficial to have some of those other guys out there? Well, sure. There's a reason why a lot of those guys were in the mix to play.” Deer Creek is 2-2 in District 5A-2. If it only wins one game against Carl Albert, Southeast and Guthrie the next three weeks, it's possible to miss the playoffs. Two wins would help, but three would likely lock up second in the district. “It's just how it goes with not getting Western Heights and (Kevin) Rassatt making a ton of plays that night,” Gower said. “He's too good of an athlete to let out, and that's what he did that night. That's put us behind the eight-ball.” BOISE CITY GAINING MOMENTUM It was a midseason winning streak last year that boosted Boise City into the playoffs, and the Wildcats are trying to do it again this year. With the dangerous duo of quarterback Jaedon Whitfield and receiver Micah Arthaud routinely producing big plays, Boise City is 3-1 in the brutally tough District C-1 heading into a big game at Balko on Friday looking for its third straight win. Whitfield, Arthaud and linebacker Braxton Crews are among a core group of seniors who have been starting all four years, dating back to their freshmen season when the Wildcats won just two games. Boise City is seeking its first back-to-back playoff appearances since 2008-09.
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.
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)

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.)

Oregon holds off Colorado 41-24 on soggy night
By PAT GRAHAM, Associated Press | Oct 4, 2015BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — At the team hotel before the game, several Oregon players got stuck in an elevator. From there, things only went up for the Ducks. Royce Freeman rushed for 163 yards and scored twice, third-string quarterback Taylor Alie tossed a clinching touchdown pass in the fourth quarter and Oregon beat Colorado 41-24 on a soggy Saturday night. Taj Griffin finished with 110 yards rushing and a score, while receiver Bralon Addison threw a TD pass on a trick play to help the Ducks (3-2, 1-1 Pac-12) rebound from an unsettling 62-20 home loss to Utah last weekend. "Last week, it didn't feel like the Oregon team," Alie said. "This week, we pulled together and played like Oregon." It was Oregon's fifth straight win over Colorado (3-2, 0-1) since the Buffaloes joined the conference in 2011 — and by far the closest. The Ducks won the previous four meetings by an average of 43.5 points. They entered this game just a touchdown favorite. "The gap closed a lot," Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre said. "We had an opportunity to win the football game in the fourth quarter. The game's been over at halftime the last two years. I think that's a good jump. It's not anywhere where we want to be, but it shows we're making progress." The game was delayed for more than an hour because of lightning in the area. At 9:08 p.m. MT, it was the latest kickoff in Folsom Field history and finished at 12:31 a.m. There was a moment of silence before kickoff for the people who died in the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, which is about 70 miles from Eugene. The Ducks and Buffaloes both wore a sticker on their helmets to honor the victims. "They were fantastic about that," Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said. "Obviously, our hearts and minds are there as well." Oregon's beleaguered defense forced three turnovers and sacked Sefo Liufau five times. Liufau was playing with a bruised right shoulder. Jeff Lockie started at quarterback for the Ducks with Vernon Adams Jr. bothered by a broken right index finger. Lockie struggled early and Alie stepped in. Lockie and Alie split time in the second half. Alie finished 4 of 9 for 83 yards, while Lockie was 8 of 11 with an interception. But Addison threw one of the best spirals of the night, taking a handoff from Freeman and tossing a 39-yard TD strike to fellow wideout Charles Nelson on a razzle-dazzle play. Addison had the composure of a QB, too, which he played in high school. "I wanted to look the safety off and give Charles time to let it develop," Addison explained. "Lay it out there for him and he was going to do the rest." Freeman scored on a 3-yard run early in the third quarter and Griffin added another TD moments later to give the Ducks a 14-point lead. But then Oregon gave Colorado a glimmer of hope, failing to convert on a fourth-and-1 at its own 46. Colorado took over in good field position and Liufau scored on a keeper to slice into the lead. Oregon answered right back when Alie hit Jalen Brown for a 43-yard TD. This day didn't start all that well for the Ducks as about 14 players got stuck in an elevator at the team hotel. Several tweeted out photos with fire men who came to the rescue. "We're so used to our elevator that can hold all of us and when I saw everyone get into the first elevator I said, 'Yeah, that's gonna get stuck,'" cornerback Glen Ihenacho said. "I was happy with my decision to wait for the next elevator." Colorado got off to a rocky start with two early drives resulting in a Liufau interception — his first since the season opener — and a fumble by Phillip Lindsay. The Buffaloes finally got things turned around, scoring on three straight drives at one point and went into the locker room tied at 17. It was a feat in itself considering that entering this game, the Buffaloes were outscored 164-19 by the Ducks in the opening half since 2011. ___ AP college football site: www.collegefootball.ap.org

College football: Former NEO coach Glen Wolfe dies
By Berry Tramel | Sep 30, 2015Glen Wolfe, who coached a junior college football dynasty at Northeastern A&M in Miami, died Tuesday in Rogers, Ark., at the age of 75. Wolfe's NEO teams went 109-19-3 from 1978-90. His 1980 and 1986 teams were undefeated and won juco national championships. Visitation is scheduled from 5-8 p.m. Thursday at Stockdale Funeral Home in Rogers. A memorial service will be at 10 a.m. Monday at the First Baptist Church in Tishomingo. “I came here as a young coach and a lot of the things I used in my coaching style came from him,” NEO athletic director Dale Patterson, a former Wolfe assistant, told the Joplin Globe. “He needs to be remembered as one of the great men who helped shape our football program. “He was an old-school coach, and you didn't play and be a member of his team unless you did it his way. That's why NEO won a lot of games ... because he wanted you to be both mentally and physically tough.”Seven NEO players under Wolfe made the NFL, including Marion Butts, Scott Case, Matt Monger and Earnest Givens. Wolfe was born in Holdenville and graduated from Shawnee High School in 1958. He earned degrees from Murray Junior College in Tishomingo and East Central University in Ada. Wolfe was an assistant coach at Pawnee and Lindsay before becoming head coach at Holdenville, Moore and Northwestern Oklahoma State. Wolfe was in the insurance business in Oklahoma City from 1991-2010. He retired in 2010. Wolfe is survived by his wife, Elaine, of Bella Vista, Ark., and two sons, Greg and Mike. Mike Wolfe was a starting offensive tackle on OSU's 1988 team.
