Player to watch, best first-round matchup and more
High school football playoffs: Class 5A bracket breakdown
By Jacob Unruh Staff Writer email@example.com | Nov 8, 2015Darkhorse contender — McGuinness: The Irish have quietly put together seven straight wins with a balanched team, including wins over Guthrie, Deer Creek and Carl Albert. With the side of the bracket not featuring some power teams like Lawton MacArthur and Skiatook, it could be favorable for a title run. Roughest road — Lawton MacArthur: The defending champions don't have it easy. The Highlanders barely escaped Carl Albert in the first round last year and have to again this week. Then it's possibly a talented Collinsville team. Also on their side of the bracket looms runner-up Skiatook, Deer Creek and Ardmore. Player to watch — Taven Birdow, Altus: Birdow's return this season from IMG Academy is making a huge difference for the Bulldogs. He's rushed for 1,827 yards and 19 touchdowns while setting two school records this season. Now, he has a chance to shine in the big stage. By Jacob Unruh, staff writer

The Oklahoman's high school sports writers, Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh, offer their championship picks for Class 6A-4A.
High school football playoffs: Championship picks
From Staff Reports | Nov 7, 2015The Oklahoman's high school sports writers, Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh, offer their championship picks for Class 6A-4A. See Monday's Oklahoman for the Class 3A-C predictions: Class 6A-I Wright: Jenks. The loss to Broken Arrow shook them up, but the Trojans are still the best team in the state. Unruh: Jenks. Sure, the Trojans lost to Broken Arrow a few weeks ago, but by all accounts they remain the top team in the class with talented players like OSU commitment Dillon Stoner and Austin Quillen. Class 6A-II Wright: Tulsa Washington. The Hornets have skated by with a couple of game-winning field goals, but the talent for a title run is in place, particularly with the run game and defense. Unruh: Tulsa Washington. This is a wide-open class, but Tulsa Washington has been the one consistent team. Having OSU commitment Justice Hill in the backfield also helps. Class 5A Wright: Skiatook. Class 5A is loaded with tough defenses at the top, but Skiatook might have the best of the bunch. Unruh: Lawton MacArthur. The defending champions have been unflappable this season, putting together an undefeated season with 19 new starters despite the loss of QB Anthony Love. Class 4A Wright: Wagoner. The defending champion Bulldogs have done nothing to show they're not the best team in the class. Unruh: Wagoner. The defending champions are simply too talented with players like K.J Lee, A.J. Freeth and Nikia Jones.

By Tim Willert, Staff Writer | Oct 30, 2015DEL CITY — Top-ranked Lawton MacArthur looked like it might be in trouble against Del City in the early going of Friday night's District 5A-1 football game. The Highlanders fumbled away a punt and then turned the ball over on their own 2-yard line when the punter couldn't handle a high snap. Del City and heralded quarterback Terry Wilson, however, couldn't convert the turnovers into points, and the defending Class 5A champs rolled a 37-0 win at Kalsu Stadium. With the win, Lawton MacArthur (9-0, 5-0) wrapped up the district championship. “It's a good feeling,” said Lawton Mac coach Brett Manning. “Everybody said at the beginning of the season that this was the toughest district in the state regardless of class. I don't think it's disappointed. To win this is a big deal for us.” Del City (5-4, 3-3) was no match for Manning's defense, which limited Wilson and the Eagles to 181 yards of total offense and nine first downs. Del City didn't register a first down until 8:21 remained in the first half. “I thought our defense played great early on and gave us an opportunity,” said Del City coach Nick Warehime. “But the margin of error is not very much against Lawton MacArthur.” Wilson, who is committed to the University of Oregon, completed 7-of-22 passes for 125 yards and one interception. The Eagles rushed for 56 yards. Wilson, who was sacked three times, totaled minus-35 yards rushing. Twice in the first half, when the Highlanders built a 30-0 lead, the defense held Del City without points inside the five-yard line. Both times, Lawton MacArthur's offense made the Eagles pay. The first time, receiver Ronnie Kimball took a screen pass from quarterback JR Winningham and raced 82 yards for the team's first touchdown. The second, Winningham found Marcus Taylor for 84 yards to the Eagles' 14-yard line. Three plays later, running back Teddy Thomas scored from the 1 to make it 23-0 and the rout was on. “You've got to put those guys down early then be willing to stand toe-to-toe with them,” Warehime said. “They're good in every phase of the game. Every phase.”

Haws, a senior linebacker, has been hospitalized since Friday night when he broke three vertebrae in his neck and back during a football game at Blanchard. The injury required emergency surgery at the OU Medicine trauma center in Oklahoma City.
High school notebook: Bethany's Hudson Haws shows more improvement Monday
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Staff Writers | Oct 26, 2015Injured Bethany football player Hudson Haws showed another significant sign of improvement on Monday when his breathing strengthened to the point that he could be taken off a ventilator. Haws, a senior linebacker, has been hospitalized since Friday night when he broke three vertebrae in his neck and back during a football game at Blanchard. The injury required emergency surgery at the OU Medicine trauma center in Oklahoma City. He still has no feeling or movement below his chest, but his arm strength has improved in the last couple of days. Being taken off the breathing machine is a major step. As the swelling in his spinal cord continues to recede, it will become easier for doctors to determine the extent of the injury to his spinal cord. LAWTON MAC'S FIAILOA INVITED TO POLYNESIAN ALL-AMERICAN BOWL Lawton MacArthur offensive lineman T.J. Fiailoa was invited to play in the annual Polynesian All-American Bowl game. The game is scheduled for Jan. 9, 2016, at Oceanside High School in Oceanside, Calif. Fiailoa said he has not accepted the invitation yet. “It means a lot,” Fiailoa said. “My family is proud, and I'm just humbled to be recognized. It's not one of those big bowls like Under Armour, but as a Samoan it means a lot.” Fiailoa is one of the top offensive linemen in the state. He holds scholarship offers from Arkansas State, North Texas, Stephen F. Austin and Utah State. He's ranked No. 27 on The Oklahoman's Super 30 rankings of the state's top college recruits for the 2016 class. The event is sponsored by the Aiga Foundation, a nonprofit organization that, according to its website, assists student-athletes from across the mainland United States, Hawaii and American Samoa in acquiring football athletic scholarships. Aiga means “family” in the Samoan language. RECORD CHASE UPDATE It's rare to have one quarterback challenge a state record, but this season two quarterbacks are chasing former Atoka star L.T. Pfaff's record of 11,357 career passing yards. On Friday, that mark was eclipsed by Locust Grove's Mason Fine, who threw for 457 yards to bring his career total to 11,658 yards. He also holds the career mark for touchdowns. Next up is Victory Christian's Keats Calhoon, who sits 342 yards away from Pfaff's mark. Each week, The Oklahoman will update the chase between Fine and Calhoon. Mason Fine, Locust Grove Total entering week: 11,201 This week: 457 Career total: 11,658 Yards past record: 301 Keats Calhoon, Victory Christian Total entering week: 10,672 This week: 343 Career total: 11,015 Yards to Pfaff: 342 BRAD DALKE NAMED ALL-AMERICAN FOR FIFTH TIME Though he's been in college for two months now, Brad Dalke added one more record to his decorated junior golf career on Monday. The Oklahoma freshman and Hobart native was selected a first-team Rolex Junior All-American on Monday, his fifth time to receive the honor. He's the first player ever to be a first-team selection five times. Dalke concluded his illustrious high school career by winning the Junior PGA Championship in August. He already has a top-10 finish and a stroke average of 72.4 through four college tournaments. Edmond North's Austin Eckroat and Norman's Yujeong Son were second-team All-American selections. SOFTBALL ALL-DISTRICT 6A-2 TEAM ANNOUNCED The All-District team for District 6A-2 was recently announced with Putnam City standout Alexis Perry taking home the top honor of Player of the Year. Perry is verbally committed to Nebraska. Putnam City North's Stephanie Giggers was named Pitcher of the Year. Mustang's Mackenzie Donihoo and Westmoore's Sydnee Ramsey were named the offensive and defensive players of the year. First-year Mustang coach Jamie Roberts was named the Coach of the Year after leading Mustang to the Class 6A state tournament. Here is a full breakdown of the team: Player of the Year: Alexis Perry, Putnam City Pitcher of the Year: Stephanier Giggers, Putnam North Offensive Player of the Year: Mackenzie Donihoo, Mustang Defensive Player of the Year: Sydnee Ramsey, Westmoore Coach of the Year: Jamie Roberts, Mustang FIRST TEAM Pitcher: Kylie Dodson, Mustang; Makayla Jackson, Putnam City; Mckenzie Smith, Westmoore Catcher: Madison Perrigan, Mustang; Hannah Salmon, Putnam City First base: Julie Minter, Edmond North Second base: Josie Tofpi, Westmoore Third base: Alexus Bailey, Putnam North Shortstop: Caleigh Stevenson, Midwest City Outfield: Mason Andrews, Westmoore; Taunna Jefferies, Midwest City; Lorren Kromer, Putnam North Utility: Brookyln Sparkman, Mustang; Ashtyn Crouch, Edmond North; Kennedy Thomas, Edmond North; Coren Davis, Edmond Memorial; Kendall Murphy, Edmond Memoriall Ashlynn Williams, Midwest City HONORABLE MENTION Mustang: Lexi Vargas, Zoe Jones, Audrie Morrison Putnam North: Caroline Hamblin, Kelsie Villabos, Meridee Lawson Westmoore: Alanna Leisy, Erycka Pierce, Bailey Gilliam Edmond Memorial: Crimson Davis, Karsen Heron Edmond North: Kamri Heath, Amy Crabaugh, Katlyn Jones, Jillian Helsley Putnam City: Danielle Stover, Jessica Holt, Sara Price Midwest City: Kylie McCoy, Kierra Williams, Maddi Thompson U.S. Grant: Lexi Merino

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

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.

Sean Talley and Cecil Cole came together to knock down Duncan’s potential game-winning pass at the goal line with four seconds on the clock to seal a win that kept 10th-ranked Del City (3-2 overall, 1-1 District 5A-1) out of a deep hole in its pursuit of the playoffs.
High school football: Big fourth-quarter plays seal Del City victory
By Scott Wright Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Oct 2, 2015DEL CITY — Del City needed every big play it could get Friday night, from anyone who could make one in its 21-16 win over Duncan. Even the punter. The backup punter, actually. Sean Talley and Cecil Cole came together to knock down Duncan's potential game-winning pass at the goal line with four seconds on the clock to seal a win that kept 10th-ranked Del City (3-2 overall, 1-1 District 5A-1) out of a deep hole in its pursuit of the playoffs. Quarterback Terry Wilson hit Cole for a 64-yard, go-ahead touchdown pass earlier in the fourth quarter at Kalsu Stadium. And defensive tackle Walter Watson had a critical sack when Duncan had first-and-goal at the Del City 4-yard line. But it was backup punter Dylan Clark who nearly crippled Duncan's last shot at victory. Only in the game because wide receiver and regular punter Gary Stice was injured in the first half, Clark drilled a 45-yard punt — his only punt of the night — that pinned Duncan inside its 20-yard line with 1:11 to go. “We had talked about it at halftime that he would have to go out there if we needed to punt,” Del City coach Nick Warehime said. “That was a great punt, and in a crucial situation.” Led by quarterback Luke Ring, Duncan moved down the field quickly, but found itself facing a fourth-down play from the Del City 30. That's when Talley and Cole converged in front of the receiver in the end zone for the game-winning pass breakup. “It was just a gut feeling thinking they were gonna go to the end zone,” Cole said. “I'm just glad me and Talley could be there to bat it down and get this win.” Ring threw for 134 yards, all in the second half, and junior running back Trenton Bell had 191 yards on 29 carries, but Del City never let him break free for a touchdown. Wilson, who is verbally committed to Oregon, threw for 137 yards and rushed for 83, including a 53-yard touchdown run in the first half. “We came out here and fought,” Wilson said. “I give it all up to the defense, because we couldn't have gotten it done without them getting some tremendous stops.” With last week's loss to Ardmore, and games against Altus and Lawton MacArthur still on the schedule, a loss to Duncan would have put Del City's playoff hopes in a dire situation. “This was a big win,” said Watson, who recently committed to Missouri State. “We needed this, and it gives us some momentum going into our game at Altus next week.”

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.

High school football: Lawton MacArthur football player removed from team after pleading guilty to four charges
LAWTON — A Lawton MacArthur linebacker who played in three games this season despite facing charges stemming from a home invasion was removed from the team Wednesday.

High school football: Lawton MacArthur football player removed from team after pleading guilty to four charges
BY JACOB UNRUH | Sep 23, 2015LAWTON — A Lawton MacArthur linebacker who played in three games this season despite facing charges stemming from a home invasion was removed from the team Wednesday. Lawton Public Schools attorney Chuck Wade told The Oklahoman that B.J. Davis was removed from the roster one day after pleading guilty to four charges. “He's no longer a member of the football team,” Wade said, declining to comment any further. Davis, 17, awaits sentencing Tuesday morning as a youthful offender, which means he will be given the opportunity to complete a rehabilitation program as part of the Youthful Offender Act with the possibility of his charges being dismissed and expunged if completed. He plead guilty 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 had transferred the spring of his freshman year from Lawton Eisenhower, where former coach Boone Copeland said he suspended Davis twice that season for disciplinary issues he declined to reveal. Due to transfer rules, Davis was ruled ineligible as a sophomore. Lawton MacArthur had appealed for his eligibility, but the appeal was dropped following the incident. Lawton MacArthur coach Brett Manning declined to comment Wednesday. He had been open nearly two weeks ago about Davis, saying he would not remove him from the team unless administration so ordered him. “I'm all about second chances, and I want to give him that right,” Manning said following a game on Sept. 11. Lawton MacArthur, ranked No. 1 in Class 5A, plays Friday at Taft Stadium against Northwest Classen. The Highlanders are 3-0. 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 sentenced as a youthful offender in December. Davis and Petit also were charged in another robbery on the same day when they allegedly struck a doctor in the head at a clinic and left with his wallet. The case was dismissed when the doctor could not initially be located and then said he did not want to cooperate in the case.
Bivin A. Davis Jr. — known as B.J. Davis — is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday. Because Davis is being sentenced as a youthful offender, he will be given the opportunity to complete a rehabilitation program as part of the Youthful Offender Act with the possibility of his charges being dismissed and expunged if completed.
High school football: Lawton MacArthur football player pleads guilty to four charges
BY JACOB UNRUH | Sep 22, 2015LAWTON — A Lawton MacArthur linebacker who has played this season despite being accused of a home invasion pleaded guilty Tuesday to four counts as a youthful offender and now awaits sentencing. Bivin A. Davis Jr. — known as B.J. Davis — is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday. Because Davis is being sentenced as a youthful offender, he will be given the opportunity to complete a rehabilitation program as part of the Youthful Offender Act with the possibility of his charges being dismissed and expunged if completed. Lawton MacArthur, the defending Class 5A state champion, plays at Northwest Classen on Friday. It is unclear if Davis will remain active. Coach Brett Manning declined to comment to The Oklahoman. Manning, though, said before Week 2's game against Lawton that Davis would remain active until he is told he cannot play him. Davis pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit robbery with a weapon, first-degree robbery with a weapon and resisting an officer. Attempts to reach Davis' lawyer, Art Mata, and Comanche County Assistant District Attorney Jordan Cabelka were unsuccessful. According to an affidavit, Davis and Brenan Pettit 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.

High school notebook: Bridge Creek snaps 24-game skid
BY JACOB UNRUH AND SCOTT WRIGHT | Sep 14, 2015First-year Bridge Creek coach Greg Hinkle watched in amazement Friday night as the town celebrated a victory it hadn't seen since 2012. Some players sat in the locker room until 11:30 refusing to take their jerseys off. Fans celebrated like it was the Super Bowl. Bridge Creek beat Lexington 26-20 for its first win since Oct. 12, 2012, against Little Axe, a stretch of 24 games. “They didn't know how to act when we won the game,” Hinkle said of his players. Bridge Creek also honored Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper Nicholas Dees before the game. Dees died on Jan. 31 when he was struck by a car at night along Interstate 40 by a driver who was reportedly on a social media page on his cellphone at the time. Hinkle said a lot of officers were in attendance for the game and the game ball was flown to the field and delivered at the 50 yard line. “It was just pretty tight. We were jacked up,” he said. Hinkle said his defensive front was dominant with Gio Pantoja, Cade Mitchell, Brett Hodges, Joe Morris and Kaleb Chase leading the way. Bridge Creek allowed just 131 yards while piling up 354 on offense. Bridge Creek travels to Sulphur this week, and Hinkle said Monday's practice was already the best he's seen to date. “They know they can win a game,” he said. “They're starting to buy into everything. It was a fight before Friday night to get them to buy in. If anything went wrong, you could just see, ‘Here we go again.' Now, we're having the best practice of the year today.” FIELDS & FUTURES RIBBON-CUTTING SUNDAY AT CAPITOL HILL Fields & 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 school has new baseball, softball and football/soccer practice fields as part of the Fields & Futures endeavor to increase athletic participation throughout OKCPS. “Having safe, well-maintained fields is a must if we want to grow student participation in sports,” OKCPS athletic director Keith Sinor said. Without that, history has shown a less than enthusiastic turnout at the schools where our fields have fallen into disrepair. “These students and coaches have waited a long time to see their fields restored to their former glory. As a former Capitol Hill student and athlete, I am especially excited to see the transformation taking place on this historic campus.” 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. The official ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 3:30 p.m. In addition, Edmond North High School has chosen Fields & Futures as the recipient for its annual student-led fundraising effort known as BALTO (Bringing A Light To Others) Week. BALTO Week has generated more than $2 million since its inception in 1995. All money raised this year will be earmarked for construction of new athletic fields at Roosevelt Middle School in south Oklahoma City. EDMOND NORTH TAKES HARKNESS TITLE Edmond North cemented itself atop the Class 6A volleyball rankings with a 5-0 run through Edmond Santa Fe's annual Heather Harkness Invitational over the weekend. North defeated host Santa Fe 3-2 in Saturday's finals to win the title, and all five opponents the Huskies faced was ranked in the top 10 of either 5A or 6A. North's Hannah Rose Frohling was named tournament MVP and was joined on the all-tournament team by teammates Jordan Kramer and Taylor Wiewel. Edmond North is now 16-1 on the season and ranked No. 1 in Class 6A. LAWTON MAC QB TEARS ACL Lawton MacArthur quarterback Anthony Love suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during a 33-12 win over rival Lawton on Friday night. “He brought a level of athleticism that was going to be really nice for us,” Lawton MacArthur coach Brett Manning said. “I think he's a big-time player. He's an unknown because he wasn't here, but I was expecting him to be somebody that burst onto the scene and become somebody everybody was talking about soon.” Love, a junior who move-in from Texas this offseason, was injured in the second quarter while running the ball. Love's backup, sophomore J.R. Winningham, filled in admirably and finished 9 of 20 for 129 yards and two touchdowns against Lawton. Lawton MacArthur, which won a state championship last season, is 2-0 and ranked No. 1 in Class 5A.
Bivin A. Davis Jr. — known as BJ Davis on the Highlanders’ roster — sat out last season while facing charges. Lawton MacArthur coach Brett Manning told The Oklahoman that Davis was allowed to rejoin the team in the spring.
High school football: Lawton MacArthur player allowed to play despite facing criminal charges
BY JACOB UNRUH | Sep 11, 2015LAWTON — A Lawton MacArthur football player awaiting trial after being charged in a home invasion in which he allegedly fired a gun twice suited up and played in his second football game of the season Friday night. Bivin A. Davis Jr. — known as BJ Davis on the Highlanders’ roster — sat out last season while facing charges and being ineligible due to transferring the previous spring from Lawton Eisenhower. Lawton MacArthur coach Brett Manning told The Oklahoman that Davis was allowed to rejoin the team in the spring and that he has no plans to remove him from the active roster. “I told him and his mom when they were going through all of that, that I was not going to let him play and if things changed we’d reconsider,” Manning said. “Last spring, things changed. I made a choice to try to help the kid. I stand by that. I knew that there would be some eventual backlash, but I’m not a public perception type guy. I think that my job is to do what I feel is right. “I feel like from the very beginning I’m trying to help a young person and I feel like that we have made some progress. I’m going to stand behind that.” Lawton Public Schools athletic director Mike Moore and Lawton MacArthur principal Rod Elam declined to comment. The Oklahoman was not given access to Davis. Davis, a junior who turns 18 in January, is listed as a 6-foot-2, 190-pound outside linebacker on MacArthur’s roster. He wreaked havoc against Lawton High on Friday night, forcing an interception and fumble, blocking a punt and recording two sacks in the Highlanders’ 33-12 win at Cameron Stadium. According to the Lawton Constitution newspaper, Davis’ case was moved from the January-February trial docket to the September-October trial docket. Davis and Brenan Petit were arrested in connection with a June 18, 2014, home invasion, according to the Lawton Constitution, accused of breaking into a home to rob the occupants, who were allegedly assaulted and pistol-whipped. Police said the intruders demanded pills and other property from the victims. The house where the incident occurred is no longer occupied by the alleged victims. Attempts by The Oklahoman to reach them were unsuccessful. Petit was sentenced as a youthful offender in December after pleading guilty to first-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit robbery with a weapon, first-degree robbery with a weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a weapon and resisting an officer, the Lawton Constitution reported. He was sentenced to 20 years, with 10 years suspended, on each of the first two counts, 10 years for robbery and 30 days for the resisting count. Davis is charged with first-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit robbery with a weapon, first-degree robbery with a weapon and resisting an officer. He pled not guilty on Aug. 26. Davis, who was 16 at the time, was charged as a youthful offender. But a court-ordered study on his amenability to treatment led Special District Judge Ken Harris to order Davis certified as a juvenile. The district attorney’s office appealed that ruling and the Court of Criminal Appeals reversed the judge’s decision. “BJ Davis is a kid who has unquestionably made mistakes,” Manning wrote in an exclusive letter to The Oklahoman. “In some small ways, he has paid for those mistakes in his every day existence. Life has been hard on BJ these last 15 months, but he has earned that.” Now, the district attorney’s office has filed a motion to sentence Davis as an adult should he be convicted, the Lawton Constitution reported. The newspaper also reported that Davis and Petit also were charged in another robbery on the same day when they allegedly struck a doctor in the head at a clinic and left with his wallet. The case was dismissed when the doctor could not initially be located and then said he did not want to cooperate in the case. Manning said he was prepared for the backlash of allowing Davis to play. “I knew that taking BJ in would bring some heat on me and on our football program,” he wrote. “Some people would see this as a ‘win at all costs’ issue. They would say that I have no boundaries and that I will let any good athlete be on my team. I knew that up front and I was and I am still willing to deal with that. “I have heard that perception is reality. Not in God’s eyes. In God’s eyes reality is reality. Truth is truth. I chose to help this young man because I believe it is the right thing to do. If some people don’t see it that way, I am sorry. If some people want to use this situation to try to tear down the MacArthur Football Program, then that is their prerogative. Evil will always try to destroy Good. “I understand that this could all blow up in my face at any moment. I know that some people will say, ‘I told you so,’ or that I deserve to have that happen. They may be right, but I had the opportunity to go back to the beginning of this situation and do it all again, I wouldn’t change a thing.”
