A farewell to people with Oklahoma ties who enjoyed a game day experience.
Tributes: Frank Parr was a local soccer icon
BY SCOTT MUNN, Assistant Sports Editor, firstname.lastname@example.org | Jan 20, 2014A farewell to people with Oklahoma ties who enjoyed a game day experience: *Frank Parr, 92, of Oklahoma City was employed by the Federal Aviation Administration. Away from work, he was heavily involved in local soccer. Parr spent 30 years as a member of the Oklahoma Soccer Association as a player, coach, referee or administrator. He served eight years as the Central Oklahoma Soccer League president. Parr was just one of three people given the Oklahoma Soccer Officials' Golden Whistle Award. *Ed Sheldon, 84, of Bartlesville served in the Army during the Korean War. While stationed in Augsburg, Germany, he played basketball. Sheldon later became recognized for handmade turkey calls. The outdoorsman made the devices out of three turkey hen wingbones — and they became so popular with fellow hunters that a turkey calling competition was named in Sheldon's honor. *Mark Champion of Tulsa was an auto racing enthusiast. He provided color commentary over the public address system at now-defunct Tulsa Speedway, while also contributing articles to the Speedway News. Champion did not mind handling the dangerous side of racing, too. He often patrolled Turn 1 at the Tulsa track, working as a fireman and paramedic. Champion died recently at age 65. *Former Weatherford chief of police Byron Cox, 57, volunteered at Kiwanis Baseball Park. He also umpired high school and summer league baseball. Cox suffered from diabetes the last few years and lost both legs. He had been fitted with prosthetics and continued to work for the police department; Cox hoped to someday return to umpiring. *Oklahoma City resident Dave Roberts, 67, was a standout athlete in the 1960s at Dewey High School. He turned down several baseball scholarship offers, instead choosing to play football at Oklahoma. Roberts played for the Sooners' freshmen team, and then gave up sports to focus on studies that led to a juris doctorate from the OU law school. *Rodney Moody, 55, of Edmond was a standout athlete at Altus High School. He particularly excelled at golf, earning a scholarship to Cameron University in Lawton. Moody worked in the grocery business for several years, before returning to school, this time at Southwestern State in Weatherford. He played golf for the Bulldogs. Moody participated in the 85th U.S. Open qualifier at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. He also played in the 84th U.S. Amateur qualifier in Oklahoma City. *Paul Mathews, 86, of Ninnekah was a self-made millionaire. He was a politician and realtor in Seminole County, owning several pieces of land during his lifetime. Mathews operated the Little League in the 1960s in Seminole, and he helped build a ballpark behind the town's armory. He also assisted in the development of a baseball field in Wewoka. *Jack Mars, 78, moved to Tulsa to work for B.F. Goodrich. As a youngster in Akron, Ohio, Mars was quite the athlete. He stood 6-foot-7 and starred in football, basketball, baseball and boxing. Perhaps before a growth spurt, Mars participated in the legendary Soap Box Derby in Akron. *Leonard Tunnell of Miami, OK, coached sports at Ketchum, Wyandotte, Locust Grove and Bluejacket schools. The six-time Bronze star recipient during World War II died at age 89. *Henryetta resident Ken Wion was a text book consultant for D.C. Heath & Co. As a young man, he played football and basketball and ran track for Woodward High School. He then played college football at Southwestern State in Weatherford. After retirement, he spent time supporting Henryetta High athletic teams. He died at age 73. *John Mahaffey, 14, of Cache participated in Special Olympics. He was a member of the Hammer Heads swim team. *Clayton Smith, 18, played baseball for Morris High School. He received an athletic scholarship to Highland Community College in Kansas shortly before he died in an automobile crash. *Oklahoma City physician James Wenzl acquired an interest in medicine while playing high school football in Greenleaf, Kan. Wenzl suffered a broken nose, a broken tibia, a dislocated shoulder and a broken foot over his junior and senior seasons. He told family members, “I spent so much time talking to doctors in those two years that I became intrigued by the work.” Wenzl, a former pediatric nephrologist at The Children's Hospital, was also a standout half-miler for the Greenleaf track team. He died at age 78 after a five-year fight with cancer. *Oklahoma City resident John Meek, 84, played basketball at Westark Junior College in Fort Smith, Ark. ... Terry Myrks, 43, played boys basketball at Idabel High School. ... Clarence Cox, 96, coached youth baseball and softball in south Oklahoma City. ... Ruben Potter Jr., 76, was an All-State football player at Elk City High School. ... Walters native Keith Hooker, 71, was a farmer by trade, but he also raised race horses. Attended the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas every December. ... Brian Martin, 51, of Ardmore played high school football and baseball in his native California. ... *Martha Scroggin, 77, of Midwest City played basketball for Buffalo Valley High School. ... Jeannie Hutton, 71, was a twirler on football Friday nights at Wynnewood High School. ... Herman Hackett, 80, of Enid sponsored softball and Little League baseball teams. ... Michael Wahl, 57, of Edmond was president of the Oklahoma City Men's Senior Baseball League. ... Dana Pitts Orebaugh, 64, of Edmond was a swimming instructor at the downtown YMCA. She was also a member of The Sportsman's Club swim team. ... *Doris Stephens Puckett, 95, of Edmond played basketball at old Marshall High School in Logan County. ... Gladys Lunow, 93, of Oklahoma City was a four-year letter winner for the Moore High girls basketball team. ... Dolores Dial Renfrow, 81, of Duncan was a championship swimmer for the University of Central Oklahoma. She was also a twirler. ... Retired Army Ranger Mack Haymaker, 82, of Enid raced motorcycles in the late 1950s. BY SCOTT MUNN

Berry Tramel | Nov 12, 2013We went down to Waco, Texas, last week for a football game. Maybe you heard. Photographers Bryan Terry and Jim Beckel, videographer (Johnny) Damon Fontenot and myself drove down Wednesday. In Waco, we hooked up with OU writers Bobby Hebert (Ryan Aber) and J.K. McKay (Jason Kersey), who drove separate because Bobby Hebert had to stop back in Dallas to cover the Sooner basketball game Friday afternoon. I’ve never been a big Waco fan, but in recent years, the place has grown on me. No hotel gouging. Easy to get to. Easy to get to Floyd Casey Stadium. But this trip was unlike any to Waco. Because of the edifice rising hard by Interstate 35. FLOYD CASEY, WE HARDLY KNEW THEE On Dec. 7, Floyd Casey Stadium goes to that big sports coliseum in the sky. Baylor hosts Texas in the final game of the 64-year-old stadium that sits about four miles from the Baylor campus. Let’s see. I’ll try to describe where Baylor’s stadium sits. Imagine if OU was where the new hospital is in Norman, on Tecumseh Road, on the west side of I-35. Then imagine if Owen Field was on Main Street, about where Norman High School is. Just sitting there, in the middle of a bunch of commercial enterprises. That describes Baylor’s setup. Floyd Casey Stadium was named for the father of Carl Casey, a Baylor trustee and booster who in 1988 gave the university $5 million toward an $8 million renovation project. It has plenty of parking but is not in the same league with the stadiums at Texas, OSU, OU, Texas Tech and TCU, the schools with which Baylor competes. Floyd Casey has its charms. For instance, everyone parks about as close to the stadium as anywhere in college football. Sometimes when we’ve arrived early, we’ve parked literally 50 yards from the pressbox elevator. But the truth is, the stadium is out of date. A relic from the days of the Southwest Conference. Fan and media amenities are minimal; the pressbox was not equipped to host the throng that assembled on the OU-Baylor game. Bob Stoops’ post-game press conference was held literally on a concourse in the stadium. Some gates drop near the end of the game, just to keep fans at bay. But they still can look and listen and even do some catcalling, though that’s been a problem only recently. It’s a place few will miss. Which brings us to Baylor Stadium, a 45,000-capacity stadium under construction just north of the Brazos River and literally a few yards east of I-35, adjacent to the Baylor campus. It rises stunningly as you drive through Waco and screams that a new era has arrived in Baylor football. First the Heisman Trophy (Robert Griffin III in 2011). Then maybe a Big 12 title (Art Briles’ 2013 Bears). Then a pristine stadium to match the jewels of the Big 12. The stadium opens next Aug. 30, when Baylor hosts SMU. OSU plays down in Waco next November. It’s quite the impressive place. Baylor football never will be the same. SOUTHERN COMFORT Like most of my trips anywhere, a stop or three at Sonic is mandatory. We stopped for a drink and a snack at the Sonic in Marietta, and the gal who served the drive-through was totally charming. She had a pleasant personality, but she also had a Little Dixie accent. I’ve got quite the Okie twang myself. I once walked into a New Jersey Burger King with former OU assistant coach Scott Hill, we ordered something and the girl got tickled at our accents. She asked if we were from Texas. Scott is — he grew up in Hurst, the Fort Worth suburb. But not all Okie accents are created equal. In southern and southeastern Oklahoma, the accents take on more of a Deep South bent, as opposed to a Texas bent. My wife’s family is from Ada; her cousins sound different than people who live just up the road at Shawnee. I’ve always figured the South culture starts, at least in this part of the country, somewhere around Pauls Valley/Wynnewood and goes east. Certainly the gal at the Marietta Sonic qualifies. And coming back through Friday, we stopped just to hear it again. Which we did. Even though it was a different girl. WACO ATTRACTIONS Waco, Texas, sounds like an exotic place. I’ve written about that before, how romantic places like Waco and Lubbock and Fort Worth and College Station seemed when I was a kid, listening to Saturday night college football on the radio. Exotic? No. Interesting? Yes. And it has nothing to do with David Koresh. Waco’s population is about 124,000, which makes it only slightly larger than Norman. But Waco’s metro population is about 224,00. By comparison, Lubbock is about 291,000. We don’t really have a comparative place in Oklahoma. We go from Lawton (125,000 metro population) to Tulsa (960,000 metro population). Waco is home to at least three museum/hall of fames: The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame/Museum (the law enforcers, not the baseball team); The Dr Pepper Museum; and the Texas Sports Hall of Fame. I’ve been to the Texas Sports Hall of Fame, which is interesting if you’re a sports historian, though in all honesty, it’s not as impressive as the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame. I have not been to the Texas Ranger Museum, but it’s connected to the Baylor campus, and I’d love to go. I watched “Laredo,” the old TV Western, when I was a kid. I’d like to know what was truth and what was fiction. I have not been to the Dr Pepper Museum, but I’d love to go. JK McKay, Bobby Hebert and Johnny Damon went on Thursday afternoon and said it was great. The guy who ran it is a big OU fan. I couldn’t go, because I had to do a video hangout, but I didn’t need to go. I haven’t had a Dr Pepper in 15 years. I gave up Coke and Dr Pepper in 1998, and gave up caffeine totally in 2000. I still drink root beer, and I’m sure some of the root beer I drink has caffeine, but for the most part, no caffeine. But I still can remember the taste of Dr Pepper and Coca-Cola, and I could drink a gallon of each. Put me in a museum like that, and I’d fall off the wagon. Or on the wagon. I never can reach that straight. GUTPACK CITY For lunch on Thursday, we went to Vitek’s barbeque, a Waco tradition since 1915. That’s right. 1915. Vitek’s seems to be a solid BBQ joint, with lots of football memorabilia, but it’s famous for its Gut Pack. The Gut Pack is sort of a barbeque version of a Frito chili pie. I figured when in Rome, so I had the Gut Pack. The Gut Pack uses Fritos as a base, topped with shredded cheese, chopped beef, beans, sausage, pickles, onions, jalapenos and bread. A small Gut Pack is $5.25. Large is $8.25. I got the large and doused it with barbeque sauce. It was interesting. Good, too, but more interesting than good. Frankly, I could have done without the Fritos. But I liked the bean/cheese/meat mix. I don’t know if I would order the Gut Pack again. But I’m glad I ordered it this time. OUR DAILY BREAD For dinner Wednesday night, we went to Baris, a mom-and-pop Italian place just down from Floyd Casey Stadium. Looks like the joint once was a Pizza Hut. The place was hopping at 8 p.m. on a Wednesday night. So much so, we couldn’t find a parking space. So we parked at a Mexican food place next door that had far more spaces than customers. When we got over to Baris, we saw a sign in the window that said please don’t park next door. So I went and moved the Expedition. Getting towed is of no interest to me. I’d been to Baris before, and it was excellent. Inexpensive, unpretentious. The pizza was excellent — we shared one as an appetizer — and the entrees were solid. But the best part of the meal was the bread. These huge rolls, seemed to have just the right touch of garlic. I bathed them in butter and couldn’t imagine anything better. None of the other guys had been to Baris. They all saluted my selection.

The Oklahoman's writers take a closer look at the playoff bracket for each class.
Oklahoma high school football playoffs: Breaking down the brackets
BY SCOTT WRIGHT, JACOB UNRUH AND TRENT SHADID | Nov 10, 2013Class 6A Darkhorse: Lawton Yes, Jenks is the overwhelming 6A favorite, and yes, it looks like another east-dominated bracket. But if anyone has a chance to spoil the show, it's Lawton with its big lines and highlight-reel running back Michael Warren. Best first-round matchup: Edmond Santa Fe at Midwest City Only slightly better than the Edlam first-rounder between North and Memorial. But the matchup of Midwest City's defense that has allowed only 12.6 points per game against the Santa Fe offense that is looking for its rhythm without Justice Hansen is deep with storylines. Potential second-round showdown: Norman North-Broken Arrow While both Norman North and Broken Arrow have tough first-round tests, a quarterfinal rematch of those two teams in the second straight postseason would come with some fireworks. Road warrior: Westmoore Losses to Jenks and Broken Arrow landed Westmoore on the road at Sand Springs in the first round. Considering how well Westmoore has played, even in defeat, this season, the Jags should still be the favorite in their first-round matchup. Class 5A The favorite: Guthrie The Bluejays have been dominant, outscoring their opponents 45-8 all season. They also have a favorable side of the bracket leading to Stillwater. Toughest road: Carl Albert Defending champion opens with No. 8 Del City, then could travel to No. 2 McAlester in a blockbuster second-round game. The semifinals could be against No. 4 Lawton MacArthur or No. 10 Pryor, too, raising concerns about a possible repeat. Dark horse: Lawton MacArthur Lawton MacArthur has been flying under the radar, averaging 39 points per game while showing improvement on defense the past three games. The Highlanders' biggest challenge en route to Stillwater could be in the semifinals. Player to watch: Kai Callins, Guthrie Often the best player on the field, Callins has been electric this season. He's rushed for 1,257 yards and 24 touchdowns, while also catching one and throwing one. Class 4A The favorite: Anadarko Running back R.J. Sink and the Warriors have managed to come out of arguably the class' toughest district with an unbeaten record, looking for their third straight trip to the finals. Dark horse: Woodward Friday night's close loss at Clinton sends the Boomers on the road to Ada to start the playoffs, but with one of 4A's best defenses, they have the capability to pile up some wins. Player to watch: Douglass senior Deondre Clark One of the state's top recruits as a defensive end, the 6-foot-3, 240-pound Clark is committed to LSU. But his battering runs from the tailback position make him even more fun to watch. Potential second-round showdown: Ada/Woodward vs. Wagoner No matter who advances between Ada and Woodward, they'll be in line for a huge second-round matchup against Wagoner and running back Lawrence Evitt. Class 3A The favorite: Blanchard The defending champions have been No. 1 all season, but a repeat won't be easy with six other unbeaten teams in the 3A postseason. Player to watch: Blanchard running back Braden Stringer Stinger rushed for over 2,000 yards despite the Lions playing just nine regular-season games. In a class full of good running backs, Stringer stands out. Best first-round matchup: Cushing at Jones After ending the season with consecutive district losses, Cushing goes on the road to play a Jones team getting hot at the right time. Road warrior: Tuttle Bethany earned a home playoff game with an upset over Cushing, but the Bronchos will likely be playing the underdog role again against Tuttle in the first round. Class 2A The favorite: Millwood The top-ranked Falcons have been considered the team to beat all season. With athletes like Alfonzo McMillian and Larry Lambeth around quarterback Cameron Batson, few teams can match that talent and athleticism. Team to watch: Meeker The Bulldogs have favorable matchups until possibly the quarterfinals, when they could meet Millwood, where an upset is certainly a possibility and would clear a path to Stillwater. Road warrior: OCS Oklahoma Christian School opens in Chisholm on Friday after winning two straight games to end the regular season. The Saints are led by junior Luke Frankfurt, who has scored six touchdowns during that span. Player to watch: Blake Summers, Davis The dual-threat quarterback missed a few games with an injury, but returned last week just in time for the playoffs with a dominant performance against Tishomingo. Class A The favorite: Ringling The Blue Devils haven't allowed more than seven points since their season-opening 34-28 loss to Davis. But challengers like Thomas, Morrison, Okeene or Cashion could change that. Team to watch: Hollis The Tigers passed every test this season with relative ease, routing both Thomas and Apache. Possible quarterfinal matchups with either Wynnewood or Kiefer and a semifinal matchup possibility with Minco or Apache loom. Toughest road: Okeene A No. 1 seed, the Whippets face a possible rematch with Cashion in the second round before possibly facing undefeated Talihina in the quarterfinals and then defending champion Ringling in the semifinals. Player to watch: Jacob Overton, Minco The do-it-all senior has rushed for 24 touchdowns, while throwing one and catching one. He's a versatile weapon for the Bulldogs in a favorable side of the bracket. Class B The favorite: Laverne Top-ranked Laverne is riding a 24-game winning streak. No opponent has come with 20 points of the Tigers this season. Team to watch: Rejoice Christian Eagles have scored at least 45 points in every game this season with seven shutouts. Toughest road: Wetumka If No. 2 Wetumka can win a potential second-round matchup with Pond Creek-Hunter (9-1), they'd likely have undefeated Alex in the semifinals. Potential second-round showdown: Fox at Rejoice Christian Fox dual-threat quarterback Taylor Townsend would present a challenging matchup for a stout Rejoice Christian defense. Class C The favorite: Cherokee The Chiefs overtook the No. 1 spot in The Oklahoman's rankings a few weeks ago and have outscored their eight opponents 387-0. Yes, zero. Dark horse: Shattuck Knocked off previously third-ranked Sharon-Mutual for the district title as the Indians continued their climb toward the top. Could it end with another state title? Toughest road: Sharon-Mutual A Week 10 upset loss to Shattuck has them opening against Mountain View-Gotebo for the opener. With a win, the Trojans would get either Thackerville or Deer Creek-Lamont in the second round, and most likely, defending champ Tipton in the semifinals. Road warrior: Timberlake The 6-4 record is more a reflection of the challenging schedule the Tigers played. A first-round win at Arkoma is a definite possibility.

Tramel's inbox: Emails on Clint Chelf and Redskins name
Berry Tramel | Nov 6, 2013[img]2259995[/img] Time for more emails, and there’s plenty of topics. Lots of people weighed in on Clint Chelf and the Washington Redskins. Let’s get right to it. SOONER FOOTBALL Don: Stoops was a little testy in yesterday’s press conference. You are absolutely correct. No question that the Big 12 presents challenges like never before. Stoops was in defensive mode yesterday. Parity is here because of reductions of scholarships put in a few years ago. Facilities upgrades for most of the Big 12 have upped the ante also. I like Bob Stoops, but reality is that it is much harder today than ever before to win championships! Your line of questioning was right on point.” I don’t know if it’s harder or not. OU’s just not doing it as much. That much we know. Isaiah: “Curious your thoughts on how long Bob Stoops would stay at OU. Not that I think he will leave anytime soon, but given his comments about trying to maintain a work/life balance for himself and for his coaches, I don’t think he would be an NFL head coach. Hearing him talk about the demands of being a college coach and his description of an NFL coach’s possible schedule, I now don’t see him leaving for the NFL. I imagine he has talked to Steve Spurrier about his experience, as well as other people around the league about the grind an NFL head coaching job is. Do you imagine he will stay a long time at OU? I certainly know that president Boren and Joe C. won’t ever tell Bob to leave, but I don’t see Bob ever leaving OU for the NFL. Now it’s just a matter of how much longer he’ll be around. Does he want to leave on a high note or when his kids are through high school?” I agree that Stoops isn’t likely for the NFL. Now, he could get his fill of coaching, but I don’t see any signs of that just yet. If I was guessing, I’d say Stoops would stay in Norman at least through his kids getting out of high school. His twin sons are in middle school. So that’s another five years or so. David: “The Sooners’ most dreaded disease is the crippling acquirement of the Three and Out. It was well demonstrated against Texas. Best drive and consistency emerged in the long drive against Texas Tech, keeping the Raiders off the field. You think that’s a winning formula?” I think it’s the only formula against Baylor. Run the ball. Control the clock. Keep Baylor’s offense on the sideline. Frustrate Bryce Petty. I see no other way to win. Johnny: What is the status on Kendal Thompson? Is he over his injury or is he still rehabbing? And what about Cody Thomas? I know he is redshirt, but I was wondering what you think his future potential is. Starter in a year or two?” Thompson is ready to play. I have no idea about Cody Thomas and I would be stunned if anyone else did either. Melvin wrote about Big 12 titles being harder or easier in recent years to win: “Harder or easier? With Nebraska, Missouri and Texas A&M gone?” It’s a valid point. Parity has come to the Big 12, but when solid football schools like Mizzou, A&M and Nebraska leave, you’d think OU and Texas would clean up even more. But no. CLINT CHELF T.J.,: “Glad you don’t coach. ‘Putting Chelf in against Tech is the wrong decision.’ Brilliant! As usual, you look like a complete ass. Keep your day job. Don’t go into coaching!” Actually, playing Walsh would have been the proper move against Tech. I would keep Chelf this week, because Chelf played well against Tech, but a few things to remember. 1. Chelf still completed just 53 percent of his passes against Tech. 2. Chelf was the beneficiary of a new tailback and a cohesive offensive line. Against Iowa State, OSU went to Des Roland at tailback, plus had some continuity with the line for the first time. Chelf still played poorly. Things came together against Tech. Bill: “How about an apology to Clint Chelf??” For what? I didn’t say anything wrong. I said Walsh should start at Tech. And I’m not convinced I was wrong. Nikki: “I think it is awful the way that you bash this young man. I have read your articles for years now and you seem to have a very negative edge to your writings, especially toward Mike Gundy. I have even noticed this attitude in many of your OU articles also. I suggest that you take a step back and read some of your pass articles and review your style of writing from previous years. I enjoyed them then but do not now. There has been a long time rumor that you had some issues with the Gundy family years ago. Is this still an issue with them? Do you take it out on some of his players because you do not like the Gundy family? I feel very sorry for the Chelf kid because of your negative writings about him. This is twice that you have lashed out on him in the newspaper. . He seems to be the best quarterback that OSU has at this time. He seems to be doing his best and working hard trying to make this team successful! Why do you keep pounding this kid over and over again with your words? Maybe you are just getting old like the rest of us and need to work on being more upbeat now. Take a look at yourself, Barry. If you are struggling with negative issues in your life, there are some great medicines out there to help you. Try it. You might like yourself more. Maybe your readers will like you again.” I’ve got no problems with the Gundys. I’ve been writing about Mike since 1984. His old man gets mad at me from time to time, but I don’t pay any attention to it. Here’s what I like. Quarterback who complete passes to their own team. That’s why I favor Walsh over Chelf. And as for that old part, speak for yourself. Bob: “Do you think Clint Chelf is back and for real?” I think Chelf is about like he’s always been. He can make some plays. He also can get you beat. Fred: “OK! What you got say now about Clint Chelf? How he was the wrong move, I believe he proved he can compete with the best QBs. Not the greatest QB at OSU but can get the job done when needed!” Here’s what I’ve got to say. Where were all you Chelf supporters before the game? Know how many emails I got before the game, chastising me for saying OSU should go with Walsh? Zero. Zero. There was no faith in OSU or Chelf. None. I don’t listen to yapping from people who think they’re soothsayers because they wait until after the game is over to say what should have been. Michelle: “Obviously you are so blatantly anti-OSU that you cannot even report your own statistics correctly! According to your own stats, Chelf has twice completed MORE THAN 70% of his passes in his eight career games; one game in which he had more than 77% completed passes!” Do you guys understand my lot now? Chelf has completed more than 59 percent of his passes twice in eight games, and that’s supposed to be a sign that he’s the proper choice at quarterback. We’ve got a lot of educating to do. Paul: “You do not owe Clint Chelf an apology for suggesting J.W. Walsh start or at least play significantly against Texas Tech, due to his below average passing abilities. He still has below average passing abilities, (see two picks, 1 for 6), but he is one thing you did not mention, unflappable. The kid makes a costly mistake and he’s contrite on the sideline but his body language never changes. Just go back out and try again. Honestly I still think he is learning the nuances of reading defenses. Pretty late date to do that but he still has very mixed game experience. Some NFL QBs take several years at the outset of their careers to learn to properly read a defense. Chelf doesn’t have the arm or savvy to make it in the NFL, but he is passable (pun intended) for a college QB. Roland is the best downhill runner I have seen at OSU in many years. Not as fast as DeMarco Murray, or strong as Adrian Peterson, but the kid gets some of the same results as those two great ‘north-south ‘ runners.” Actually, not only did I refer to Chelf’s unflappability, I used the exact word “unflappable.” Greg: “You’re wrong on the OSU QB situation. Chelf should have started all along. Now, he has to work out the cobwebs. The Cowboys have no chance with Walsh…nada, none, zippo, zero. With Chelf, OSU has a fighting chance. Actually, I think OSU is going to screw up a lot of things. I believe Tech (in Lubbock) will defeat Texas and OSU will finish them off in Austin. They will be massacred in Waco. Good bye Mack. An interim will coach a bowl game.” Give Greg credit. He wrote this email before the OSU-Tech game. I can respect that. But UT-Tech is in Austin, not Lubbock, and that game comes after OSU-Texas. THUNDER Chris: “My opinion is that the Thunder is wise to avoid the luxury tax this season because doing so would make it more difficult to re-sign Kevin Durant. If the Thunder became a tax paying team this season, they would face the repeater tax after the 2015-16 season. That’s the same time Durant’s current contract expires. I believe he’s less likely to stay in OKC if it looks like those next four years will be dedicated to rebuilding. If the Thunder waits until next season to go into the luxury tax, when it comes time to re-up, Durant knows he has at least one more season with Westbrook, Ibaka and Adams. Those are four players you can, hopefully, win a ring with. I think Sam Presti is wiser to make that argument.” This seems clear. The Thunder is headed for the luxury tax next season and the year after. The repeater penalty, which is really punitive, kicks in if you go into the tax three times in four years. So the Thunder is wise to stay out of it in 2013-14. William: “Does Sam Presti draft better than he trades? Sam trades good for draft choices. But when it comes to trading for NBA horse flesh, no thank you. I’d rather have Jeff Green at this point over Perk. KD fell in his lap. He drafted Russell Westbrook, Serge, Harden.. He drafted too smart with Harden; couldn’t afford him in Stockyard City. People continue to second guess that choice. It’s not Brooklyn and Prokhorov, it’s OKC and Bennett. He knows what the small town market will bear and how deep Clay Bennett’s pockets are. Stick with drafting, that’s his forte. Sam could use a good Lieutenant in the front office…a counter weight. I’d already trade in Perkins for Steven Adams. I’m amazed that Scottie is giving him playing time. He never gives rookies playing time. Maybe his hand is being forced?” Wait a minute. I know Perkins is becoming damaged goods, and his days are numbered. But do you have any idea how good that trade was? The minute Perkins arrived, OKC’s culture changed. All that talk about defense became actuality. The Thunder became an NBA contender because of the Perkins trade. COLLEGE FOOTBALL Bernie: “Reading your blog regarding the Ames, Iowa, trip, it occurred to me that Montana and North Dakota State have been dominant teams at the Division I FCS level for years. North Dakota State is currently ranked No. 1. Why do you think teams like Minnesota, since you mentioned St. Paul, and Iowa State have struggled so much at the FBS level to reach success? Just cannot recruit enough speed from the southern tier of states to the American north needed to compete at the FBS level? Interesting to think about the FCS and FBS success differences in the American north.” Hmm. That’s worth thinking about. Yes, Iowa State and Minnesota have struggled. But Ohio State and Michigan have flourished. Yes, Alabama and LSU have dominated. Mississippi State and South Carolina, not so much. So I looked at all the I-AA champions. North Dakota State twice in a row, Eastern Washington, Villanova, Richmond, Appalachian State thrice in a row, James Madison, Delaware, Western Kentucky, Montana, Georgia Southern twice in a row, UMass, Youngstown State, Marshall, well, that’s enough. A good cross section of north and south. Moreso than in I-A. Maybe speed is the reason. Tivis: “When you see certain sports teams, you always know what their uniforms will look like. Everyone knows what the Oklahoma Sooners. New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Alabama Crimson Tide and Texas Longhorns will be wearing. But it is a surprise every time you see the OSU Cowboys, Baylor Bears, Houston Astros, Oregon Ducks, Maryland Terrapins and others as far as their uniforms. Does it have something to do with some being traditional winners and some, maybe, not being such traditional winners?” It has everything to do with recruiting ballplayers. The younger generation loves the contemporary looks. I think you’ll see the Oklahomas and the Alabamas going more and more in that direction. OSU FOOTBALL Don: “Hope OSU has convinced you by now with the Texas Tech dominance. They are peaking at right time! Every week improving, especially since Roland’s running and offensive line are coming together. The quarterback’s iffy, but has great leadership. Chelf has passed Walsh because of leadership and running ability. Great team and coaching leadership as well. Defense solid and getting better. I was impressed with the physicality of this team on both sides of ball. Let’s hope OU wins Thursday and have two Oklahoma teams in the running.” It certainly was a big-time performance in Lubbock. Maybe the Pokes are peaking. However, I don’t think Chelf is playing over Walsh because of leadership. I think Chelf is playing because of arm strength. Tim: “One thing I noticed besides the superior offensive line play against Tech (every play, just about, we knocked them off the line), is that Glenn Spencer and the defensive coaches make really good halftime adjustments. Against the better opponents, note the two halves point differential.” OK, I noted it. Throwing out the Lamar and Texas-San Antonio games, OSU has outscored foes 98-48 in the second half. Iowa State and Texas Tech, particularly, have been second-half dominations. Del: “OSU’s recent record in Texas and vs. Texas schools looking dominant. Since 2010, games in Texas and/or against Texas schools: 17-2. Conference road games in Texas since 2009: 9-1. Overall vs. A&M, Texas, Baylor, Tech and TCU since 2009: 15-3. I love this stuff. John: “I know the Cowboy fans are beating you up a bit after the weekend’s articles, but I’m one fan that appreciates your candor and unbiased reporting. I’ve always felt the biggest problem with the offense is not necessarily the QB but the tweaks and changes in either routes/QB reads or something to do with getting away from the detail of the Holgorsen offense. Way too many throws to the wrong spot, broken routes, poor timing, etc. I saw it vividly in the spring game and had concerns. This was not as evident against Tech because of the run game success, but against better fronts I still have my concerns. Have to give the coaches and players credit for great adjustments and a really nice win that not many including myself really expected.” Ah, an admission that a win was not expected in Lubbock. That’s good. That’s really good. I, too, wonder if they’ve gotten away a little much from the Holgorsen offense. It’s possible the answer is no. It’s possible that what you did with Brandon Weeden, you can’t do with others. That’s a good one to keep an eye on. Greg: “Good article tonight giving Chelf praise, when your last article was saying Walsh should be the QB. Not ripping on you. I didn’t see this performance coming either. But game balls should go out to Glenn Spencer and the defense. Bill Young’s firing looked like a wise move then and tremendous move now.” Spencer is doing a heck of a job, there’s no doubt about that. Edward: “Just checked into my hotel from the game today and read your article re Chelf. As a Sunday morning QB, I don’t disagree too much with what you wrote. What irritates me the most about you and most (all??) OKC media is your constant measurement of teams on how they play OU. You guys didn’t give us a chance because the Red Raiders played your vaunted Sooners head up last week. Earth to Berry and all other OKC media, this isn’t the 1970s, and your Sooners are an average to good team in the top 25. And so are the Cowboys. Coach Gundy has the Pokes playing at a higher level. I will say based on what Chelf was able to accomplish today, (leading his team to a huge win in a hostile environment) he was very impressive. Oh, and I can’t wait to see Thomas Lott, the Selmons, and Little Joe Washington, lead by Cecil Cemara, venture into Boone Pickens this year….Oh wait – this is 2013. Silly OKC press.” Silly OKC press? How about silly fans who have a 2×4 stuck up their butt. The reason everyone picked Tech to win was not because Tech played OU tough, but because OSU’s offense had been mediocre all season. I think OSU will beat OU in Stillwater this season. But before Cowboy fans get too fancy-pantsed, remember that OSU has beaten OU once in the last 10 meetings. That’s the same ratio as in the ’70s. Ron, talking about a small contingent of OSU fans in Lubbock: “I wouldn’t be to hard on them for this trip. I know Tech grads that won’t even go to games in Lubbock because of the way their fans treat visitors. There was some of that on Tech’s trip to Norman even.” Tech students have that reputation. But I didn’t know it applied to all Tech fans. Danny: “I don’t blame OSU fans for not going to Tech. I went a few years ago and don’t care to go back. They are the worst hosts I have ever seen. No telling what they would be like if they won. They rank right up there with Mississippi State baseball fans. If you don’t know about them, ask Gary Ward.” Do you realize it’s been 26 years since the Anthony Blackmon incident? The OSU centerfielder dropped his pants and mooned Mississippi State fans, who had been hurling racial slurs at him during the NCAA Mideast Regional. We’ve come a long way. Bill: “College football is not my specialty, but your article made me wonder. Who made the worse decision this year about the OSU quarterback position: Lunt or Gundy?” Gundy. Letting Lunt leave because his future wasn’t clear? Horrible decision. Lunt clearly had the most upside of the three OSU quarterbacks.\ REDSKINS David: “I’ve been sitting on the fence with regards to the controversy surrounding the Washington Redskins and the movement towards name change. So much of what passes for people being upset today is hyperventilated political correctness –everyone is insulted by everything. But your article has allowed me to see it for what it is and it is hard to argue otherwise. And, yes, just because something always has been doesn’t make it forever acceptable. Perhaps as a nation of people, we are maturing and learning to be more sensitive to the feelings of others. It is now the time to change the name. Thanks for the excellent article which gives us better “insight” from both you and Mr. Tsotigh.” Don’t worry. The detractors are coming. Bill: “By your logic in saying the name Redskins is an inappropriate name for an NFL football team, I suggest you should be just as indignant about the name Oklahoma Sooners. After all, the Sooners were criminals who illegally jumped the gun for the Land Run. So shouldn’t we be ashamed of idolizing a football team the goes by that name. If that isn’t enough, we should be even more ashamed of the name Oklahoma. After all, it’s translation in Choctaw means ‘red people.’ So we are guilty of being politically incorrect with the demeaning state name of Oklahoma, certainly nothing we should be proud of. Being ‘nudged’ into being politically correctness is simply giving way to the people and ideology whose goal is to control people’s minds.” Is that the best you’ve got? Rather than discuss the issue of whether Indians are being degraded, turn it into this kind of nonsense? David: “Susan Shown Harjo of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) has been quoted as saying, ‘the use of ANY stereotype in the portrayal of Indians is considered … to be contributory to their dehumanization and deracination.’ The Washington Redskins are just the beginning, Mr. Tramel. If Daniel Snyder caves, how long do you think it will take Native American advocacy groups to go after the Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Indians, Chicago Blackhawks or the Golden State Warriors? Although they would never admit it, I suspect the owners of the before mentioned franchises hope that Snyder doesn’t relent because they know they’ll be next in the crosshairs! Besides, how much do you feed the beast of hyper-sensitivity and political correctness?” You’re probably right. The Braves and the Blackhawks probably hope the Redskins keep their name. If there’s a team out there called Redskins, someone else is at the front of the line. Yenna: “Thank you for you column concerning the Washington Redskins football team and your stated opinion on the subject. However, I find it ironic that an individual with such deep roots in Oklahoma would inject themselves in an argument over a perceived offensive nickname given to a private organization. The very meaning of the word Oklahoma coming from the Choctaw language means ‘Red People.’ Is the term ‘Redskin’ somehow equally or more offensive than ‘Red People?’ Is it that when one hears the term ‘Oklahoma’ they don’t immediately think of ‘Red People.’ Perhaps the state gets away with veiled racism because the offensive name is disguised by a foreign language. Maybe Washington could simply disguise the ‘Redskins’ nickname using a foreign language like Spanish. The team could call themselves the Washington ‘Piel Rojas.’ That doesn’t sound nearly as offensive. I would suggest you lead the way in Oklahoma by demanding the state as a government entity, change their offensive name before making like demands on a profitable private business. For the record, I am neither a supporter or fan of the Redskins nor the State of Oklahoma.” Piel Rojas. I like it. I like it a lot. David: “The state’s name is derived from the Choctaw words okla and humma, meaning ‘red people.’ Bit ironic that a sportswriter from Oklahoma would comment on other people using the words red skin. People who live in glass houses, etc, etc. You also forgot to mention that before each and every Florida State University home football game, a half naked Caucasian dressed like a clownish Seminole Indian rides a horse to midfield and throws a spear into the ground. Not only does the Seminole Tribe not complain about this insensitive performance, but believe it or not, the Seminole Tribe of Florida actually condones it. Max Osceola, the chief and general council president of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, has stated that he regards it as an ‘honor’ to be associated with the university.” I didn’t mention it because I didn’t want to write 50,000 words on the subject, which I could have. I have written about the Seminoles/Florida State relationship, which is a huge point of contention in the Indian community. But all this Oklahoma/red people argument. Please. Come up with something better. Ryland: “Thank you for writing the opinion piece on the use of the above word. I was born in 1949 so I have had the opportunity to see things change in word usage as you stated. When I was young people who were ignorant called me blanket ass, chief (I am not one ), redskin and other offensive names. When people ask me now why I am offended, I try and explain but am sometimes met with ‘that’s stupid.’ I finally started doing this. It is like calling an African American a N… That sometimes gets their attention. It would be nice if the African American football players in the NFL and college would join in the protest. My great grandfather, war chief Tabananica (hears the sun rising ) was a prisoner of war of the United States and was locked up in Fort Marion, Fla., for 14 years. He gave my family our Comanche name. It is not Redskin. Thank you again for focusing attention on this very offensive name.” That’s what is known as a primary source. Chance: “No mention of the Wynnewood Savages in today’s article? I think you could make the case that nickname is much worse and degrading than ‘Redskins’ has ever been. Any thoughts?” I agree. I didn’t want to take on every issue, but I completely agree. Kurt: “But when did you think it was offensive? Not until the ‘I’m offended by everything’ crowd told you, right? I have an aunt named Gay who is 80. No one thought that name was offensive until the homosexual crowd co-opted the word. Sometimes old definitions are just old and need to be redefined.” I thought it was offensive 20something years ago. That’s when I first wrote a column about it. I think it was at the Norman Transcript. I worked there until 1991. Pat: “My Webster dictionary says a Redskin is ‘an American Indian.’ No more no less. Maybe your dictionary is a politically correct addition. As a certified American Indian, I find nothing offensive in the name Redskin unless that redskin is a robber, thief, murderer, etc. I suggest you look in ‘your dictionary’ and look up ‘Caucasian Sportswriter.’ You might find ‘noun, a honkey without ownership or investment poking their nose into other peoples business. Often a characteristic of having the need to fill up space with nothing to write.’” I promise. The more my detractors talk, the better they make my case. Eric: “I disagree with your assessment on the Redskin name. You failed to mention that the term was derived by the Indians themselves to delineate themselves from the white man. It was a term of pride for them. The term was not a white man’s term used as a slur. You forgot to mention that or you didn’t do your research. It’s obviously a name of pride for the Redskins, and always has been. It’s saying they’re tough, brave. It’s not a slur. How many teams call themselves disparaging names? Oklahoma Idiots? Dallas Dummies? You may find a few silly names, but very, very few disparaging nicknames are out there. All you’ve really done is fall in line with activists that are trying to guilt our ‘white society’ into feeling sorry for them, when the truth is that the term is a term of pride. Most of their race agrees with that. It’s the easy way out just being an appeaser. Lame on your part, and an intellectual copout.” Here’s where Eric is wetter than a car wash. Redskin is not a source of pride. And here’s how you know. Like I wrote, the term is out of use except as a mascot for a sport team. Chief? Brave? Even warrior? We still use those terms. No one – Indians, whites, no one – uses redskin. No one. It’s not a source of pride. It’s a racial slur. Doug: “I found it interesting that after reading your article this morning, I watched the Today Show. They were interviewing all the stars from the new movie Last Vegas. One subject that they talked about was ‘political correctness’ because Hallmark took out the word ‘gay’ in ‘don we now in gay apparel’ to ‘don we now in fun apparel.’ They all agreed Hallmark was basically being stupid. Morgan Freeman also made an interesting comment. He said we HAVE gone too far with PC and gave the example that suddenly he is called an ‘African’ as in African American. Mr. Freeman said, ‘I’m not African. I am not from Africa.’ I could not possibly care less about WashingtonDC’s team changing their team name or not changing their team name, but I am tired of everyone forcing political correctness down my throat. We have gotten so thin skinned in our society, it’s ridiculous.” The biggest problem with political correctness is when people use it as an excuse to never change anything. It becomes an automatic fallback position. Oh, that’s just political correctness. The same kind of thinking was used to fight against women’s suffrage and civil rights and all kinds of issues. It wasn’t always called political correctness, but it always was about the same thing. Keeping the status quo. Gary: “My name is Gary Pratt, and I am the Chairman of the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma. I would like to thank you for your concern and article. Thank you for acknowledging the fact that Redskin is a racial slur and is unethical and unacceptable in today’s society. It is a subject that has long been detested by our people, yet our voices seem to go unheard by those of higher authority. Let’s hope and pray the governor, and representatives from our state government, have read your article, and receive the motivation to go out and make a difference.” Glad to help Paul: “Your commentary today is spot-on. Offensive = Offensive. Change the name. But I want to approach the debate from a biological prospective. From the time of Aristotle, Linnaeus, Darwin, etc., critical thinkers were trying to put all of life into some manageable box to make sense of nature. For example, Canis lupus is a wolf. Canis familiaris is a domesticated dog. Within any species of life, there will be shown some differences = Unique and Distinct. All of life which is critical for survival. Biologists have a hard enough time to put all of life into a simple box. The idea that race is even used is crazy regarding Homo sapiens and out of the realm on biologists. Is there a difference between a German Shepard and a Poodle? Yes….but they are the same species capable of interbreeding = they are the same. When is the last time you heard someone in the grocery store ask what race of pepper (Capsicum annuum) you bought. Bell Pepper, Jalapeno, Cayenne??? These plants are in the same species, just unique and distinct. So to make a distinction among humans (i.e. Redskins, Polish Americans, etc.) is not logical from a biological prospective. I had fun talking about leeches in my class this week. Maybe the Washington Redskins can rename themselves the Washington D.C. Leeches (all pun intended).” I think we’ve stumbled upon an intellectual. Who knew they existed in this forum? Stan: “As usual, great read this morning. In total agreement with you. When you said …”I’d give you examples, but it’s not even decent to list them,” I really, really wish you could have. But part of the irony of the subject is that due to our nation’s history, you would have been castigated for just giving a few examples, where I, as an African American, have no such burden….at least where disparaging names concerning us are concerned. Can you imagine the uproar names like the Douglass Jigs, Coons, Spear Chuckers, etc. would have caused? It’s an issue the resolution of which is long overdue.” It is interesting that the use of such words has made discussion more difficult. I guess that’s not a terrible tradeoff. I’d rather talk around such words than have to hear them in regular conversation. Jim: “Your column was spot on. Want to get the name changed? Challenge the tax free status of the team. Change the name or lose their non-profit status. An organization that is formed solely for the purpose of playing professional football should not enjoy tax free status while it’s very name incites bigotry and slander.” Do the Redskins have tax-free status? I’m no expert. But that’s basically what the NCAA has done, threatening various status for schools that won’t change nicknames perceived to be offensive. Nick: “No argument – the term Redskin is defined as disparaging and offensive. But a couple of questions come to mind. 1. The Washington NFL team has been the Redskins since 1932. So why has the controversy boiled to the top now? 2. Are we now going to go after all the collegiate and high school sports teams with American Indian names? There aren’t many collegiate teams left with these kinds of names, but Wikipedia lists too many high schools with American Indian names to count. They are broken down by specific names and 91 of them are Redskins. Looks like this argument will continue forever.” I don’t know when the Redskin debate started, but like I said, I know it’s at least 20 years old. Wouldn’t surprise me if it was much older than that. I actually cut the Washington Redskins much more slack than I do colleges and high schools. Snyder is a free enterprise businessman. He can do whatever he wants. A public high school or university should be held to higher standards. Jeff: “Loved your piece on the Redskins and completely agree with you. I think we could start right now and right here by getting the Daily Oklahoman journalists to stop using the term from here on out and simply refer to them as ‘Washington’ in their articles. And tell everyone what you’re doing and why. What do you think? Would the paper’s leadership support/stand behind this? If you’re serious, I challenge you with this next step.” Interesting idea. The Portland Oregonian, San Francisco Chronicle and Kansas City Star, I’ve been told, have taken that step. It might be a good idea. On the other hand, the biggest impact would be if networks engaged in the practice. The trouble is, the networks and the NFL are contractual partners, so that would be dicey. Bill: “Been waiting a long time for you to weigh in on the issue. Thanks for your article today. Yes, you’re right. Some names are fine. Lots of people can be Warriors, Chiefs, and Braves. It’s those like “Savages” or those with caricatures like Cleveland’s. With those, I say, ‘Keep the names. Just change the image.’ How long would the names last if we replaced the image of any other ethnic group? Hispanics, Blacks, Asians, and yes, even Whites.” I’ve long wondered why some teams held onto the imagery. For instance, OCU, which changed from the Chiefs to the Stars back in the ‘90s. OCU could have kept Chiefs, just change the imagery. Lots of people are chiefs. Not just Indians in full headdress. Mary: “As the mother of two children (adults) who are Native American, I thank you for your article. They both hate the name.” Actually, the whole debate is silly. Redskins? Really? In 1943, maybe. In 2013, you’ve got to be kidding. Greg: “I think there is one angle your story failed to address. If American Indians are so offended by the name Redskins, would it not make sense that they (and other like-minded people) would pool their funds and make Daniel Snyder an offer to purchase the team? Then, they could change the name to something they find more suitable. Seems like too often, people enjoy standing on the sidelines and telling everyone else how to run their own business, but run away from the opportunity to ‘put their money where their mouth is.’” Daniel Snyder wouldn’t sell. Jacob: “I appreciate your support in recognizing the outdated notion that this racial slur in some way ‘honors’ our people. I know you will get some flack from those who say that we are overly sensitive, but your statement will draw support from rational American Indian people who recognize that, by taking one step at a time, we might begin to eradicate those symbols of bigotry that seem benign on the surface but lead to other more insensitive and inappropriate stereotypical images of our people. You have taken the moral high ground and that could lead to other more impactful changes as progress continues to change our attitudes. As Dr. King stated, the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice.” One step at a time. Those might be the most important words in that email.

Anadarko's R.J. Sink will play this week
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh | Oct 22, 2013Anadarko senior running back R.J. Sink was last seen wearing a sling during last week's 18-15 win against Woodward. Warriors coach Kent Jackson said it was just a stinger, and Sink will play Friday in a huge district game at Piedmont. Sink rushed for 141 yards and two touchdowns last week, bringing his season totals to 1,174 yards and 21 touchdowns. No. 1 Anadarko would seal a second straight District 4A-1 title with a win Friday and one win in the final two games against either Weatherford or Elgin. But Jackson is making sure his team does not overlook the Wildcats, who upset then-No. 4 Clinton last week, 45-19. “Piedmont can beat us, too,” Jackson said. “I've told the team that and they know it. They're good enough to beat us.” WAYNE'S JOHNSON RETURNING TO FORM Hopes were high in Wayne entering the season, but a Week 1 injury to running back Louden Johnson deflated the Bulldogs' excitement early. Johnson rushed for more than 1,500 yards and 22 touchdowns a year ago, but in four games without him, Wayne managed only six total points. Johnson returned from a torn plantar fascia in Week 6, but Wayne lost to Stratford, which likely crippled its playoff hopes. Johnson rushed for four touchdowns in last week's 44-19 win over Crossings Christian in a nondistrict game to improve to 2-5. Of course, Johnson wasn't the only significant injury the Bulldogs faced during their five-game losing streak. Two starting defensive ends, who also played tight end, were lost, and a starting linebacker will be out this week. “We haven't had a game yet where we had all our starters,” coach Brandon Sharp said. “We've lost three tight ends, and in Class A, you don't have three tight ends to lose. “It's been one of those years where the injury bug got us. Not making excuses, because we would've had a tough time beating a few of those teams fully loaded, but it would've been a lot more competitive.” With Wewoka and Wynnewood next in line on the schedule, it doesn't get any easier. But Sharp is hopeful that the added experience for his younger players will help out in the future. “It's been frustrating, but we have a bunch of freshmen getting a bunch of playing time because of these injuries,” he said. “That's one key thing, because those guys are getting reps.” APACHE'S MCDANIEL WINS NO. 100 Apache football coach Larry McDaniel earned his 100th career win with last week's 53-12 rout of Snyder, and the total is expected to increase this week. The Warriors play host to Anadarko's junior-varsity team on Thursday, looking to improve to 7-1 on the season. Apache, which fell out of this week's Class A rankings, is still in a position to win the district title, but it'll take an upset of No. 2 Hollis next week on the road.

James Allen made a mark in the NFL, playing for the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans, despite going undrafted. Since retiring, he has dabbled in the music industry and jumped into the sports training business, living now in Houston, where his son Hayden continues to improve from a health scare that required brain surgery.
Collected Wisdom: James Allen, former OU and NFL running back
BY JOHN HELSLEY | Oct 5, 2013James Allen put Wynnewood on the recruiting map back in the early 1990s, running for 6,203 yards and 95 touchdowns during a marvelous high school career. He was a USA Today All-American and the No. 1 running back prospect in America, according to Parade Magazine. Holding scholarship offers from a multitude of schools, Allen chose Oklahoma, vowing to play his part in bringing back Sooner Magic at a time when the program had stumbled. But Allen played for three coaches during his time at OU, never really reaching the fans' — or his own — expectations. For all he did as a Sooner, ranking No. 14 on the school's all-time rushing list, his college career seems to boil down to his games, good and bad, against Texas in the Cotton Bowl. From starring as a freshman in 1993 to getting stoned by Stoney Clark at the goal line as time expired in '94 to returning as hero with an overtime touchdown in '96, the Red River Rivalry outwardly defined Allen's journey with the Sooners. Allen made a mark in the NFL, playing for the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans, despite going undrafted. Since retiring, he has dabbled in the music industry and jumped into the sports training business, living now in Houston, where his son Hayden continues to improve from a health scare that required brain surgery. Those days at Wynnewood were, oh, they were awesome times. I actually got online the other day and looked at some old articles. I hadn't done that in about 20 years. And I was really impressed with some of the stuff I was reading about myself and my teammates. It was like, ‘Wow, we really did that.' Those were awesome times. Just arriving on campus (at OU) and going to practice with all the guys; the day, the actual day of getting there and Aubrey Beavers and Cale Gundy and all the media, it was like, ‘Oh my God, I'm an Oklahoma Sooner.' That was probably the proudest day of my life as a Sooner. Just sayin' to myself, ‘I'm an Oklahoma Sooner.' That was so huge. We're kind of the era that is the forgotten group. People want to put those years behind, so we don't really get brought up in conversation. Maybe a joke about what we were going through at that particular time. But you have to understand that as young men, we were just bouncing with the flow of things, trying to fit in with this coach and that coach. We couldn't really find a chemistry. When I got there, we were coming off probation. We were the guys who had to get back through that and try to get it turned back around. We were loaded with talent. I mean, you can look at that time and see how many guys went professional and you'll be amazed at that. Even at the running back position alone, when I first got to Oklahoma, I really encountered competition. I had to get through that. I had Jerald Moore. Jeff Frazier. De'Mond Parker. These guys were just as good as me. At OU, I kind of didn't know how to deal with that. I'm coming from Wynnewood, 2,000-yard rusher. This was a whole different level. Playing for the University of Oklahoma, it comes with a lot of pressure, but it also comes with a lot of responsibility, because of the great tradition you've got to carry. Every single player during that era, we failed. We failed the university. We failed the fans. We failed the great state of Oklahoma, because we didn't compete on the level that we were supposed to compete on. I think whenever Howard Schnellenberger came, that was the ultimate breaking point for us. It was brutal. It was something I had never been through. That was like the last straw. Because you had so much hope and expectation with him being our coach, but when he came in, literally we were beat down after about Game 6. I'm not making any excuses, but you have to understand that when things break down on a higher level, it's going to come all the way down. So you have guys in the locker room going a certain way, getting into cliques or not agreeing on who should be quarterback or who's doing what. At some point in time, we said, ‘Look, no matter who's calling the plays, no matter who the quarterback is, no matter what the media says, we've got to go out here and play and do it for us. And do it for the thousands of fans and the guys who came before us and the guys who will come after us.' From the outside looking in, someone may look at those guys and think we couldn't get it together. But from the inside looking out, we were really just trying to find leadership and trying to find our way as young men. We didn't have that with our coaches, with so much change going on. When you look back on it as a grown man, I think, I should have done more to be a leader, to be more vocal. But you learn from it and you grow. I think a lot of guys from that era, we probably come back less than any group of guys. The 80s era, they're forever going to be fan favorites. There's nothing that any team could do to replace those years. You have Switzer, you have The Boz … You had the controversies, but you had the winning. And then you have the guys, the 2000 kids who have really done a great job under coach Stoops. So there's a lost mix of guys from our time. ‘You remember those guys?' ‘Yeah, they sucked.' But you've got to take the good with the bad. If you're going to wear the OU helmet, you've got to hold your head up high when they do win championships. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. Those times got me to where, if I hit a hard spot in life, I had something to look back on to help me move forward. (Getting stopped on the goal line against Texas), that's a ghost. That is a ghost right there. I ask myself, ‘Wow, what if I would have gotten in? What if …' But then, I made thousands of plays and I came up short thousands of times in my life, I'm not going to let that nag me to death. So when I think about OU-Texas, yeah, that does always come into my mind. But then, at the end of it, I can always say, ‘You know what, I got in on the last one.' That was perfect vindication. That was a perfect soap opera for me. You get stopped. You get denied. And you come back and have a great senior game against Texas. When I scored the overtime touchdown, I don't care how bad we were, we don't get enough props for that OU-Texas game, because that was awesome. I mean really, that was amazing. We were 0-4, and we go in there and do that. And just the way we won it, from offense to defense to special teams … that was amazing. If you look at it, we're the era (at OU) that's like when the ladies walk across the street and you lay down your jacket to cover up the rain puddle — we're the jacket. The whole deed was very chivalrous, but nobody paid any attention. We did what wasn't pretty. I know that we weren't as highly publicized for our years there, but we paid our dues, too. We maybe didn't win a championship, but I feel as though I'm a part of that history and tradition. And I'll always be a Sooner, no matter what they think about my era or me. I love OU. Out of all the schools that I could have gone to, I chose to stay home. And I'm glad that I did. I didn't get drafted. I bounced around for a minute. But I had so much growth as a young man. When I left OU, I felt like a huge weight was off my shoulders. There was so much pressure that was off, no one really knew who I was or what I was doing. I could just focus on football. I was just another number trying to make it. I still had to pay some dues and deal with the NFL politics, but it worked in my favor. God blessed me and allowed me to have a great career with the Bears and the Texans. It was an underdog story, where you just come up from the bottom and you earn it. When I got to that level, I had to go get it. Being a Sooner and going through those rough times allowed me to do it. I love working with kids. Being a dad now, being around kids is a great outlet and a great way for us to grow as adults, too. Every kid I get to train or talk to about life, I always find that while I'm giving them a lesson, I'm learning something as well. Kids these days, if we look at them very, very closely, they're a sounding board and a platform for us to grow as adults, as teachers, as parents, because they're going to challenge you every day. You can't give them false enthusiasm, because they'll detect it. So it's very important to open our hearts and our minds to them. So beyond being behind them, trying to help them run and jump and do all these other things, I'm trying to give them some valuable information about life that they can carry forward. I live in Houston. I have a son, who really needs me right now. I was planning to move from Houston back to Oklahoma, to open a training facility. It would just make sense for me to be somewhere where I have a name, humbly saying. People know me. I have friends who have kids that want to train. Hayden needed unexpected brain surgery in October of 2012. Very traumatic. Almost life ending. That's when my life completely changed, my approach to day-to-day living. Loving him and sharing and hugging him and letting people know that, ‘Hey man, this is how I feel.' He had a scare. And he has made a great recovery, thanks to God. He's walking ... talking, it's a miracle, man. I don't even deserve the blessings and grace that God has poured out into my son. I have seen a real, live miracle with my own eyes. The only thing that rubs me the wrong way here is when I see cars with the horns on the back. When I think back on it, I always put those memories in my head and let the rest go. There's nothing you can do about the good or the bad. You can pull from whatever you want to pull from, I pick the good times.

Jenks-Union is no surprise as the pick for Week 2's best game, but find out about some of the year's other top games.
High school football: A week-by-week look at the season's top games
BY SCOTT WRIGHT | Aug 31, 2013It's here. The scrimmages are over, and the high school football season has arrived. With several games set for Thursday, a loaded schedule Friday and a couple of intriguing Saturday matchups, Week 1 of the season should quickly wipe out the months of longing for football to return. In Sports Monday, we'll go into greater detail on the 10 best games of the first week of the season. But here's a week-by-week look at the top games of the upcoming year: Week 1 The pick: Midwest City vs. Edmond Santa Fe at UCO (Thursday) Sure, Midwest City still has some doubters after last year's 3-7 season. And maybe the Bombers aren't quite ready to knock off the best of the west. But last year's loss to Santa Fe (50-42) wasn't as lopsided as some of the Bombers' other defeats. Their defense has sparkled in the preseason. Now it's time to find out how they really stack up against the loaded Edmond Santa Fe offense. Other options Davis at Ringling; Del City at Tulsa East Central; Norman vs. Norman North at OU (Thursday); Jenks/Union vs. Texas powers Euless Trinity/DeSoto (Saturday) Week 2 The pick: Jenks vs. Tulsa Union at Tulsa University The only thing that makes this game any bigger is when it's played in November. But this year's battle has an interesting matchup question, with Union's all-new offensive line, and new starter at quarterback going against what might be Jenks' best defense since the 1997 squad led by Rocky Calmus. Other options Douglass at Millwood (Saturday); Carl Albert at Coweta; Heritage Hall at Clinton; McGuinness at Tulsa Kelley; Westmoore at Southmoore. Week 3 The pick: Tulsa Union at Broken Arrow Broken Arrow might have more Division I prospects than any team in the state, but are the Tigers a legitimate contender this year? How has Union's batch of new offensive starters handled the tough early schedule? Time to answer some questions before district play begins. Other options Edmond Santa Fe vs. Edmond North at UCO; Davis at Heritage Hall; Hennessey at Kingfisher; Midwest City at Del City; Tulsa East Central at Tulsa Washington. Week 4 The pick: Kingfisher at Heritage Hall Want to see a district decided in September? That might be the outcome here. Maybe Newcastle or someone else could rise up and disrupt the district hierarchy later in the year, but going in, the title looks to be on the line in Week 4. Other options Weatherford at Clinton; Lawton MacArthur at Del City; Deer Creek at Carl Albert. Week 5 The pick: Carl Albert at McGuinness These two teams played a pair of classic games last year, McGuinness taking the regular-season matchup and Carl Albert winning in the 5A semifinals. Both are in the top 3 of The Oklahoman's preseason poll, and even more will be riding on it this time around. Other options Shawnee at McAlester; Fort Gibson at Broken Bow; Coweta at Tulsa East Central. Week 6 The pick: Guthrie at Carl Albert Perhaps the strongest rivalry going in the OKC metro area, and it's just as hot this year. Carl Albert's 21-17 loss in Week 6 a year ago was the Titans' last defeat before running the table to the 5A title. Other options Anadarko at Clinton; Oklahoma Christian at Millwood; Broken Arrow at Jenks. Week 7 The pick: Edmond Santa Fe at Lawton Lawton — with a slew of beefy linemen, an experienced quarterback and speed all over the field — might be a dark-horse contender to be the west's best team. In Week 7, the Wolverines will get the chance to prove it. Other options Shawnee at Tulsa Kelley (Thursday); Jones at Blanchard (Thursday); Norman North at Edmond North. Week 8 The pick: Guthrie at Deer Creek Their meeting last year, a 42-35 Guthrie win in overtime, might have been the most dramatic and intense game of the regular season. Can they follow it up with another classic? Other options Fort Gibson at Cascia Hall; McAlester at Tulsa Kelley; Crescent at Cashion; Tipton at Ryan. Week 9 The pick: Wayne at Wynnewood These two teams have been among Class A's finest the last two years, and every meeting has been special. If nothing else, a district title should be on the line. Other options McGuinness at Guthrie; Texhoma at Okeene; Edmond North at Midwest City; Sand Springs at Owasso. Week 10 The pick: Douglass at Ada Two traditional powers meeting in the final week, likely with a district title on the line, both chasing their shot at the Class 4A title. Other options Tuttle at Blanchard; Berryhill at Metro Christian; Cascia Hall at Broken Bow; McGuinness at Deer Creek; Pond Creek-Hunter at Laverne.

1. Ringling (13-1) The Blue Devils no longer have RB Jackson Dillon, but they still have Taner Richardson. 2.

Class A Rankings: Ringling, Wynnewood top preseason rankings
BY STEPHANIE KUZYDYM AND SCOTT WRIGHT | Aug 25, 20131. Ringling (13-1) The Blue Devils no longer have RB Jackson Dillon, but they still have Taner Richardson. 2. Wynnewood (13-1) With 14 returning starters, Wynnewood has a chance to quickly overtake Ringling as the No. 1 team. 3. Thomas (11-1) The Terriers lost 15 seniors, but their talent is deep. 4. Texhoma (12-1) Loaded again after last year's district title and quarterfinal appearance. 5. Kiefer (11-1) Two words: Trey Sneed. Two more: Really fast. The 5-foot-6 running back rushed for 1,012 yards and 13 touchdowns on only 118 carries last year. 6. Hollis (9-2) DB Khalil Johnson leads the team from the defensive side of the ball. 7. Cashion (13-1) Expect to hear a lot of “QB Matt Harman to WR Joe Neece.” 8. Wayne (11-2) RB Louden Johnson continues to wow the state. 9. Okeene (6-5) With nine returning starters on each side of the ball, the Whippets just need to stay healthy. 10. Fairview (10-2) The Yellowjackets are on the upswing with coach Chris Cayot. 11. Crescent (10-2) RB Michael Cronister will break 3,000 career yards with a 1,000-plus rushing season. 12. Velma-Alma (8-4) The Comets could have even greater success under Greg Gothard in his 16th season. 13. Talihina (11-2) The Blue brothers will stop the left side of the field to protect QB Alan Lockhart. 14. Morrison (9-3) Linebacker Jordan Quinata is only a sophomore, but he makes a serious impact for the Wildcats. 15. Rush Springs (4-6) Colt Beard and the Redskins should make serious improvement from last season. 16. Minco (6-5) Look for senior Jacob Overton to shine at wide receiver ... and quarterback ... and free safety. 17. Warner (11-1) The Eagles had an undefeated regular season last year and remain near the top of Class A this year. 18. Apache (7-3) The quickness and experience of the Warriors, along with an unselfish team-oriented attitude could lead them to a stellar season. 19. Afton (5-6) Coach Zach Garner will try to get the team back to winning at least eight games like the team did in his first four seasons at the helm. 20. Watonga (6-5) Defensive back D'Qwan Loneman is the difference. 21. Savanna (9-2) Senior RB Christian Preston will try to keep scoring and leading. 22. Empire (7-4) Team lacks depth but will likely contend for a district title with the help of its 10 seniors. 23. Wewoka (7-4) Four-year starter and RB/LB Bryton Washington should continue to be the playmaker for coach Tommy Bare and the Tigers. 24. Elmore City (7-5) Coach Sam Sharp and the team haven't had a season below .500, and it's doubtful that will change in 2013. 25. Hominy (5-6) It will be hard to get past the depths of the Bucks' strong lines. 26. Summit Chr. (6-5) The combination of QB Cameron Gilbert and WR Jeremy Pelotte guides the Eagles through their tough district. 27. Mooreland (6-4) WR/DB Landon Peach is the quickest and biggest threat. 28. Snyder (5-6) The Cyclones will perform this season under a new system. 29. Gore (6-5) Former Berryhill and Kellyville assistant coach Steven Bivins begins his first year at the helm for the Pirates. 30. Fairland (6-4) New coach Austin Martin guides the Owls' path this year. 31. Healdton (5-6) Strong skill players like RB Chaz Carr help the Bulldogs. 32. Foyil (1-9) The Panthers didn't lose a lot, which could help them to more than one victory this season. 33. Central Sallisaw (4-7) Senior QB Aaron Bush has a chance to add a third 1,000-yard passing season to his high school career. 34. Yale (6-5) With multiple three- and four-year starters, the Bulldogs could have one of their best years in a while. 35. Stratford (5-5) Year 1 was an improvement from the 2011 Bulldogs squad.

Pioneer (2-8) The Mustangs' run game will go through Chase Courter. 40. Liberty (4-6) Look to senior RB Harley Stone to be the Tigers' spark. 41. Caddo (3-6) QB/FS Wyatt Wright makes things happen on both sides of the ball. 42. Cordell (3-7) QB Tyler Beasley already had more than 2,400 passing yards and 31 passing touchdowns.

Drumright (3-7) The Tornadoes' linemen will be inexperienced, but their skill positions will try to make up for it. 49. Sayre (1-8) With few returning starters, the Eagles could struggle. 50.
