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

High school football: Lawton Ike surprises Putnam West, 50-28
By Jeff Raymond, For The Oklahoman | Oct 31, 2015WARR ACRES — Lawton Eisenhower hadn't won a game in 2015 before Friday. For Putnam City West — riding high on a 4-4 record and with a playoff berth in sight — the Eagles' 50-28 win couldn't have come at a worse time. Putnam West must finish the regular season next week by winning at Enid to make the Class 6A playoffs for the first time since 1996. Lawton Ike coach Danny Edleman praised his team's effort and said their 0-8 record didn't reflect their play throughout the season. "We've just been on the bubble all year long, just letting momentum at certain times of the year get away from us," he said. "Our kids were able to go out and exercise a lot of hope and faith in each other. I think they did a really great job." Senior Rico Bussey agreed. "We could have won a lot more games, but (there were) a lot of silly mistakes," said Bussey, whose sideline sweeps made up half of the Eagles' one-two offensive punch. "We didn't make those in this game." Quarterback RJ Fisher made up the other half of the rushing tandem. Together, Bussey and Fisher accounted for nearly all Lawton Ike's yards. Fisher scored the game's first offensive touchdown on a 27-yard keeper with 2:17 left in the first quarter. He followed it up with a 23-yard carry for a touchdown three minutes later. Putnam West quarterback Trey Gooch put the Patriots on the board with a touchdown pass to wide-open tight end Harrison Thornton with 8:48 remaining in the second quarter. The Eagles struck again after a critical offside penalty against the Patriots gave them a first down in the red zone. Sophomore Kenneth Graham followed up with an 8-yard touchdown run with 2:44 left in the half. Putnam West responded with a 70-yard Nick Robinson kickoff return for a touchdown. Three minutes into the third quarter, Fisher danced into the end zone after breaking multiple tackles and spinning away for his third touchdown. Two minutes later, Bussey broke free for a 70-yard touchdown run. Putnam West junior Jordan Early — the team's leading rusher — caught a 3-yard TD pass with 2:59 left in the third quarter. Gooch followed up with a 26-yard touchdown run to end he third quarter. Bussey scored the game's final touchdown with 9:10 left in the fourth quarter. "Flat out — we just didn't show up to play," Patriots coach Rocky Martin said. "We knew they were fast. We knew they had speed, and they flat out beat us up front," he said. "They were more physical than us, and they came to play."

Belief is a big deal at Putnam City West. This is a team that hadn’t won a district game since 2010, but has won two this season — both on the road against teams that went to the playoffs last year.
High school football: Putnam City West on track for first playoff berth since 1996
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Oct 22, 2015STILLWATER — Trey Gooch said it. Nick Robinson, too. Coach Rocky Martin, the ringleader of it all, offered the same phrase. “We believe in each other.” You can believe in Putnam City West, too. Following Thursday night's 35-26 win at Stillwater, the Patriots are in good position to clinch a playoff spot for the first time since any of their players were born. “We'll let everyone keep doubting us, and we'll keep believing,” said Robinson, who had touchdown receptions of 94 and 46 yards along with a few big tackles on defense. “We know we're all here for each other. We don't want to let each other down. We're gonna keep believing in ourselves as a team and keep playing hard.” Belief is a big deal at Putnam City West. This is a team that hadn't won a district game since 2010, but has won two this season — both on the road against teams that went to the playoffs last year. “A lot of people say you need to buy in,” receiver Chris Potts said. “But if you buy in, you can sell it. If you believe, it's in you forever. When we work as a team, we believe we will win.” Now 4-4 overall and 2-2 in District 6A-II-2, the Patriots are on track for their first playoff appearance since 1996. And it's not some sort of fluke. They won Thursday night — against a team three weeks removed from a win over powerhouse Midwest City — with big plays, clock-eating drives and a momentum-turning goal-line stand in the second quarter. Stillwater had scored with ease on its first two possessions and drove to the PC West 1 on its third series. But PC West came up with two straight stops from the 1-yard line and got the ball back with the game tied at 14. Three plays later, Gooch hit Robinson for a 94-yard touchdown and PC West never trailed again. “That stop was insane,” said Gooch, who threw for 230 yards and rushed for 54. “I had fumbled a handoff before that, and I wasn't so certain about how the rest of the game was going to go. But after they made that stop, I knew we had the momentum to finish the game.” Gooch only threw the ball 14 times, completing 10. It was running back Jordan Ealy who became the Pats' workhorse, rushing 29 times for 131 yards and three touchdowns. He ran eight times on a 16-play drive that took 7:10 off the clock in the third quarter, finishing it with a 1-yard touchdown run. Now, the Patriots can turn their attention to Lawton Eisenhower and Enid, their remaining opponents who are a combined 1-13 on the season. “This win is monumental for program, for our school,” Gooch said. “For us to win against a good team like Stillwater, it's a huge boost of confidence, and hopefully it gives us what we need to finish out the season strong.”

High school sports: Capitol Hill, U.S. Grant bumped up in new OSSAA ADM
BY JACOB UNRUH | Sep 1, 2015A change in the average daily membership Tuesday bumped Capitol Hill to Class 6A and also bumped U.S. Grant up a class in football for the next two years. The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association released the official ADM after a near month-long delay due to an appeal from Claremore based on the participation of Emerson High School student-athletes at other Oklahoma City schools in the past. Now settled, Capitol Hill moves to Class 6A and U.S. Grant moves to Class 6A Division I for football while Claremore drops to Class 5A and Enid remains in Class 6A Division II in football. Football and baseball districts will not be approved until next week's board meeting. And football's initial districts will undergo some significant changes with both Capitol Hill and U.S. Grant not competing in OSSAA district play due to an agreement with the organization. With both schools now in each of the Class 6A divisions, each class will have seven-team districts that leave schools with an extra non-district opponent or bye week. “With us going to a Zero Week, it might be somewhat easier to fill that void,” OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley said. “But the position of the board is and from Oklahoma City's request is to try to help U.S. Grant, Capitol Hill, do some restructuring and get the numbers back up to be competitive again.” Capitol Hill, which has a new ADM of 1,398.22 after the addition of an average of 93.95 students, will compete in Class 6A the upcoming school year for sports that do not feature districts already determined on a two-year cycle. U.S. Grant added an average of 122.75 students for a new ADM of 1,824.12. Attempts to reach OKCPS athletic director Keith Sinor were unsuccessful. Last month, it was determined that students at Emerson High School — an alternative school that joined the OSSAA last week — were violating OSSAA rules by participating for other OKCPS schools that they were not enrolled. A total of 11 athletes competed at another school, though Sinor said last week the district has discovered at least two athletes never suited up to compete. The OSSAA board then determined OKCPS needed to come up with the number of students from Emerson who counts toward each OKCPS school. Claremore benefits from the move to Class 5A after going 2-8 last season in football and the boys basketball team enters the winter as contenders to make the state tournament in Class 5A.
High school sports: OSSAA gives Oklahoma City Public Schools extended deadline to resolve Emerson's ADM issue
The OSSAA board instead extended the deadline that was not met last Friday to 4 p.m. Monday to receive the average numbers that should apply from Emerson to other OKCPS schools.
High school sports: OSSAA gives Oklahoma City Public Schools extended deadline to resolve Emerson's ADM issue
BY JACOB UNRUH | Aug 27, 2015The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors delivered a hard deadline for Oklahoma City Public Schools to present proper numbers for the average daily attendance of Emerson High School. OKCPS officials delivered an appeal Thursday in a special board meeting to reconsider a decision that could move Capitol Hill to Class 6A and Claremore to Class 5A based on the athletic participation of Emerson students at OKCPS schools. The OSSAA board instead extended the deadline that was not met last Friday to 4 p.m. Monday to receive the average numbers that should apply from Emerson to other OKCPS schools. If the deadline is not met, the OSSAA staff will then determine the ADM for each OKCPS school based on apportions determined from a formula from the staff. “I think the board was disappointed that Oklahoma City was not able to provide the numbers in the time that was allotted to them,” OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley said. “I think they want to do things right, and that's why they've extended the deadline because they don't want to work on hypotheticals. But if we can't get those numbers, then that's the only thing we have.” The board requested OKCPS to determine from the ADM how many students apply to each school based on their previous school or if they never attended an OKCPS school in what district they reside. If that information is not delivered and the OSSAA staff determines the numbers, not only will Capitol Hill move to Class 6A in all sports but U.S. Grant will move to Class 6A Division I in football. That's a move that would leave 15 schools in each division. Claremore would then fall to Class 5A in all sports, and Enid would also benefit with a return to Class 6A Division II for a second straight term. No other OKCPS school would change classifications. OKCPS officials declined to comment on the ruling following the meeting, but communications officer Tierney Tinnin released a general statement. “We appreciate the opportunity they gave us to present to them with more than ample time,” she said. “We wanted this opportunity to admit any mistakes we made, but also come up with a solution moving forward that does not punish the children.” That solution was addressed. The OSSAA board unanimously approved Emerson's application for membership and then approved a future co-op with Seeworth Academy, an alternative school that plays an independent schedule. But that does not change the current ADM, which is used to determine the classifications for each school in football and baseball the next two years. It is also used to determine classifications for other sports and activities the remainder of the school year. Emerson is a fully accredited school that six alternate schools feed to help students dealing with a plethora of situations ranging from pregnancy to credit recovery to discipline issues at their original school. The ADM for the school is 505.13 and 11 students participated or practiced last year with other OKCPS schools.

In a showcase of stellar running backs, Norman North’s Quan Hogan, Edmond Santa Fe’s Darran Williams and Tulsa Union’s Tyler Adkins will be on the field Thursday in a four-team scrimmage hosted by Westmoore.
High school football: Star running backs highlight start of football scrimmages
BY SCOTT WRIGHT | Aug 19, 2015Oklahoma has some talented running backs in the senior class, and over the course of a couple hours Thursday night at Moore Stadium, you can see three of the best in action. Norman North’s Quan Hogan, Edmond Santa Fe’s Darran Williams and Tulsa Union’s Tyler Adkins will be on the field Thursday in a four-team scrimmage hosted by Westmoore. All four teams will participate in the rapid-fire scrimmage portion of the schedule beginning at 4:30 p.m. Half-games will follow junior-varsity action, with Westmoore and Union meeting at 6:45 and Norman North taking on Edmond Santa Fe immediately after. While it’s the most intriguing scrimmage on Thursday’s schedule around the Oklahoma City area, it isn’t the only exciting matchup slated. Class 6A Division II runner-up Lawton will be at Edmond North, and defending 5A champ Lawton MacArthur will visit McGuinness in what could be a preview of an eventual playoff game. Putnam City North will be at Del City, another 5A contender. In the smaller classes, Millwood will host Centennial and Plainview, and Tuttle will get its only scrimmage action of the preseason with a visit from Cache. Tuttle will begin its regular season on Aug. 28 when Davis comes to town. Friday’s scrimmage schedule offers a better variety, including Carl Albert at Southmoore, and four solid small-school teams in action at Casady. The Cyclones will host Kingfisher, John Marshall and Christian Heritage. Here are some notable city-area football scrimmages this week: Thursday Putnam City West at Deer Creek Putnam City North at Del City Lawton at Edmond North Lawton MacArthur at McGuinness Centennial, Plainview at Millwood Edmond Santa Fe, Norman North, Tulsa Union and Westmoore at Moore Stadium Little Axe at Southeast Cache at Tuttle Friday Crooked Oak, Washington and Holdenville at Bethel Chickasha, Elgin at Blanchard Christian Heritage, Kingfisher, John Marshall at Casady Hennessey at Cashion Western Heights and McLoud at Chandler Clinton at El Reno Meeker, Cushing at Jones Wayne at Lexington Bethany, Harrah at Newcastle Ardmore at Noble Mount St. Mary at OCS Perry at Perkins Enid at Putnam City Carl Albert at Southmoore Norman, Tulsa Edison at Stillwater Choctaw, Shawnee at Tecumseh

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

Justus last coached in 2013 at Comanche, where he served as coach for four seasons. He took last year off due to family reasons.
High school notebook: Ringling names Steve Justus football coach
BY JACOB UNRUH | Jul 23, 2015Ringling has a new football coach, and it’s not a Gandy. The school officially hired Steve Justus as its new football coach on July 15, according to the The Daily Ardmoreite. The move came just two days after the school board reassigned longtime coach Tracy Gandy with a unanimous vote. Justus last coached in 2013 at Comanche, where he served as coach for four seasons. He took last year off due to family reasons. “Anybody who has coached football has got to get to Ringling,” Justus told The Daily Ardmoreite. “It is one of the best football jobs in the state of Oklahoma. I am super excited to be going there.” The decision to remove Gandy, who was battling chronic fatigue syndrome last season, came after the school hired new superintendent Kent Southward. The syndrome caused constant pain, fatigue and difficulty sleeping. His family told The Oklahoman in May that his health has fully recovered. Ringling went 10-2 and advanced to the Class A state quarterfinals last season. The Blue Devils have won four state championships since 1989 — three of which Gandy has been involved with as a player, an assistant coach to his father, Rick, and one as head coach in 2012. The school’s football field is named for his father. LOCUST GROVE’S TORREY NO LONGER AT ORU Former Locust Grove girls basketball standout Rylie Torrey has left Oral Roberts and will instead play at Northern Oklahoma College in Enid, her father Dusty told The Oklahoman. Torrey moved to Locust Grove with her father before last school year and then led the Pirates to the Class 4A state championship. She verbally committed to ORU as a junior at Weatherford. Dusty Torrey said there were no hard feelings with ORU and that Rylie left the team on good terms, even after spending six weeks taking classes and working out with the team. Torrey will now play for Scott Morris, who was a college teammate with Dusty Torrey. “She was fortunate Morris still had a scholarship available,” Dusty said. “A lot of times that doesn’t happen in the summer time.” Rylie averaged 19.8 points last season and was named the state tournament MVP. She was on The Oklahoman’s Super 5 second team. NORMAN NORTH’S SCOTT COMMITS TO ORU Norman North’s Alexa Scott verbally committed to Oral Roberts on Monday, announcing her decision on Twitter. Coach Rory Hamilton also confirmed the commitment to The Oklahoman. Scott, a 6-foot post, averaged 9.8 points and 9.5 rebounds per game last season while leading the Timberwolves to the area tournament. She was offered last week by ORU.

Oklahoma City homebuilder Jack Evans, who is managing partner of TimberCraft Homes, recently talked with The Oklahoman about the effect growing up with deaf parents had on his life and career.
Executive Q&A: Self-described 'hooligan' in high school finds his strong suit is in building houses
By Paula Burkes Business Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Jun 21, 2015During their childhood, when televisions had on/off knobs, Oklahoma City homebuilder Jack Evans and his identical twin, Jay, didn’t know — until their friends told them — that the same TV knob also controlled sound. Their deaf parents never turned up the knob, and communicated with their sons through sign language, which was the twins' first language. They needed speech therapy to perfect their English. From a model home in the Pleasant Grove addition near Memorial and Council, Evans, who is managing partner of TimberCraft Homes, recently talked with The Oklahoman about the effect his silent household had on his life and career. Evans, 47, not only had an unconventional upbringing, but also was a nontraditional college student and worked several different jobs before finding his niche in homebuilding 10 years ago. His twin since has followed him into the industry. TimberCraft had annual revenues last year of $16.5 million and employs 16, including an interior designer and two planners who draw the firm’s unique blueprints, Evans said. With paintable exterior sidings, open floor plans, multiple windows and cathedral ceilings, his homes, even those smaller than 2,000 square feet, “give the illusion of volume and a cleaner feel,” said Evans, who’s built in northwest Oklahoma City, Surrey Hills, a little in Mustang and around to Edmond. He’s also built on 42 tornado-ravaged lots in Moore. The following is an edited transcript of the sit-down with Evans: Q: Who’s older, you or your brother, and how identical are you? A: I’m seven minutes older than Jay. We were born, two months premature, in Ponca City, where our parents were passing through. We lived our first two years in Afton, my mom’s hometown, so that my grandparents could help care for us. Then, we moved to Enid. My mom didn’t identify us in most of the pictures from our childhood, because she couldn’t even tell us apart. Today, we don’t look so much alike. But when people see us separately, they still struggle with who’s who. Q: What did your parents do? A: My dad, who was born deaf, and mom, who lost her hearing at age 4 or 5 after getting tuberculosis, met at the Oklahoma School for the Deaf in Sulphur. My mom, at 20, was about to graduate and dad, at 32, had returned for a football game. He had trained as a pressman at the school, but worked 29 years as a butcher for the Enid State School for the intellectually disabled. He died of kidney cancer at age 60, shortly before he’d planned to retire. The most he ever earned was $17,000, but he left a good pension for my mother, who’s retired and lives outside Lawton. My mom worked as a housekeeper for the school, until she was hurt in a car accident. She was riding a Vespa and turning back into the school after a lunch break, when she was hit. Afterward, she couldn’t work and, until she was approved for disability benefits, we for a few years were on food stamps. It was not great. Jay and I can remember standing in line to get cheese and pinto beans. We were old enough, at 11 or 12, to know our friends were not doing that. We have a sister, a few years younger, who has her own business as an interpreter for the deaf in Fort Worth. Q: In which extracurricular activities were you involved in school? A: Jay and I just hung out, often with two other friends. We were hooligans and not the best kids. Our parents taught us a good work ethic and the value of keeping our credit clean; we threw morning and afternoon papers from the time we were 11 or 12 and saved and bought our own motorcycles and cars. But they were satisfied with only passing grades. Meanwhile, largely unsupervised and with an accomplice in each other, we vandalized and shoplifted. Some of our teachers are probably surprised we’re not in jail. Q: And college? A: I’d graduated high school four or five years before I started college, and that was mainly because I wasn’t getting the kind of job I wanted. Having worked as a supervising night stockman for United Foods in Enid and a day stockman for a grocery in Fort Worth, I started at Northern Oklahoma College in Enid toward earning my associate’s in business administration and becoming a food broker. But after I graduated, I decided to continue, commuting to UCO in Edmond. I figured I could always go back and be a food broker, but after earning my bachelor’s in finance, I joined MidFirst Bank and worked five years as a servicing and acquisition analyst in the administration of home mortgages. Q: What made you decide to work for yourself? A: Though I enjoyed working for MidFirst, and got great training in understanding finance and contracts, I didn’t like being chained to the office from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Theresa already had started her own business doing title work for banks on repossessed cars, and I saw how she could come and go as she wanted. My first venture was buying a commercial industrial paint business that was a wholesale supplier to area manufacturers. It was successful, but I hated it. It was a culture shock, coming from a professional bank environment. I found my niche in the housing market, blending white- and blue-collar work by working with banks on financing, but overseeing construction outside of the office. Before I was a builder, I fixed up and flipped homes I bought in sheriff sales, doing most of the work myself. But after shows on flipping houses starting airing in 2005 on HDTV, there no longer was any money in it, and I transitioned to homebuilding. Within six months after the house flipping shows started, the number of people showing up at foreclosure sales ballooned from 50 to 400, including stay-at-home moms pushing baby strollers who thought they could make a little money on the side. Q: Did you and Theresa ever plan children? A: I joke that Jay had my share. He has five kids, ages 8 to 25. And on Theresa’s side, we have 29-year-old fraternal twin nieces, who lived with us for a time when they were attending OU. Theresa had a hysterectomy before we married, so we knew we wouldn’t have biological children. We’d considered adopting, but when the time came, after I’d completed my degree and we’d started our separate businesses, it just wasn’t part of our life. Q: Is it hard competing against your twin brother, Jay Evans of Two Structure Homes, who also builds houses in the same additions as you? A: I don’t see it as business he gets, I lose. Our products are as different as a Subaru and Ford Truck; my homes are more modern and his, more traditional. In general, my buyers are younger, ages 28 to 32, but they’re sophisticated buyers. Many are buying their first homes, only these aren’t cracker box stereotypical starter homes or tract homes, but distinctive homes that reflect them. As twins, Jay and I have competed our whole lives, and the competition has — and still does — make both of us better.

High school basketball: Oklahoma Faith 7 player profiles
Scott Wright | May 28, 2015The 50th annual Oklahoma/Texas Faith 7 Basketball Bowl will be held at 7 p.m. June 6 at Oklahoma Baptist University. Here’s some information about the 10 players selected to play for the Oklahoma team, provided by Faith 7 organizers: A.J. Cockrell, 6-8, 220, Tulsa Memorial: Coached by Robert Allison, Cockrell led the Chargers to a 19-8 record and the 2015 state semifinals, as well as to state championships in 2013-14. Bound for the University of Texas-San Antonio, Cockrell averaged 17.4 points, 14.3 rebounds, and 1.8 assists while shooting 59 percent from the field and 65 percent from the free throw line. Chris Crawford, 6-2, 177, Victory Christian: Bound for Oral Roberts University and coached by Ryan Wakley, Crawford averaged 21.6 points, and 4.3 assists while leading the Conquerors to a 22-6 record and district and regional championships. An all-stater, Crawford holds school career records for assists (403) and steals (306), and is 2nd in scoring (1,881).

High school notebook: Northwest Classen's Tyritta Dixon signs with Brown Mackie
By Jacob Unruh and Scott Wright | Apr 24, 2015The journey of Tyritta Dixon will continue at the collegiate level. Dixon signed her National Letter of Intent at Northwest Classen on Friday with Brown Mackie College in Salina, Kan., to play basketball, adding another positive step in her journey from homelessness. “I feel like this is just another step of me becoming a great person and me becoming great like I want to,” Dixon said. Dixon’s journey was documented in Sports Illustrated last fall and in The Oklahoman in February. She became homeless her eighth grade year when she left her mother’s home and later had a baby, Ta’Niya, after a family acquaintance raped her. Since then, things have started looking up for her. She moved in with her father before this school year and now she has a chance to go further. “It makes everything worth it and it makes me so proud that she overcame so much and finally has the confidence to take this next step, even though there’s been so many doubters,” said Jackee Brown, who coached Dixon the past three seasons at Northwest but was recently informed she would not return next season as coach. Dixon averaged 11.9 points as a senior. She had a chance to sign with Neosho County Community College in Missouri, but hesitated too long. Instead, Neosho coach JJ Davis led Brown Mackie to Dixon. “To me, it’s strange but he said he would have my back and he said he would put me in the best place possible to be successful and he did,” Dixon said. “I really appreciate Coach Davis for doing that.” ALL SPORTS ASSOCIATION NAMES SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS Guthrie’s Beau Davis and Deer Creek’s Abbey Renner have been named the winners of the Oklahoma City All Sports Association’s $1,000 college scholarship awards, the organization announced Friday. Davis, a football and baseball player for the Bluejays, is involved in student council and part of the National Honor Society. Renner plays basketball, serves as a class officer and is involved with the Business Professionals of America and NHS. Selection for the awards was based on achievement consistent with the mission of the All Sports Association, including leadership, athletic participation, civic activities and academics. Applications for the 2016 scholarships will be released in January for students in the greater Oklahoma City metro area. To qualify, student-athletes must be attending a two- or four-year Oklahoma college or university, have a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher and a minimum ACT score of 22. They must also have participated in high school athletics, but cannot be receiving an athletic scholarship, or be participating as a walk-on athlete.

Under the new rule, teams are limited to 90 minutes each week of full contact in practice instead of an unlimited amount.
High schools: OSSAA votes to limit contact in football practices
By Jacon Unruh | Mar 25, 2015Less contact is coming to high school football practices across the state after the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors approved recommendations Wednesday from the football advisory committee to protect the health of players. Under the new rule, teams are limited to 90 minutes each week of full contact in practice instead of an unlimited amount. “This is all in an effort to address the concern over head trauma,” OSSAA associate director David Jackson said. “Oklahoma coaches responded, and the board was pleased and I was pleased that our coaches took the initiative and didn’t want to fight it.” The changes have been in the works since last summer when Kingfisher coach Jeff Myers attended a concussion summit with the National Federation of State High School Associations. This was a proactive move by the coaches. “This head-trauma stuff at every level has gotten our attention,” Jackson said. “They’d rather do some of these things as opposed to waiting until legislation comes in and makes us do things we don’t want to do.” The OSSAA also approved a new rule for the summer of 2016 that limits football teams to one team camp instead of two in hope of limiting injuries. Other football changes include the addition of a “Zero Week” in which teams are now allowed to start a week earlier against out-of-state opponents in an effort to ease scheduling burdens. A team must take a bye week at some point in the remainder of the season should it play that week. Eight-man football is also getting a makeover. The number of teams has been increased from 76 to 80, with Class B having 48 teams and Class C having 32. As a result, Class B will have an extra playoff round and finish a week later with Class 3A-A. OSSAA TO SEND SURVEY TO 6A-4A SCHOOLS REGARDING PRIVATE SCHOOL RULE The OSSAA board of directors voted to send a survey to member schools in Class 6A-4A regarding a rule Bishop McGuinness High School officials feel unfairly targets private schools and has been the focus of a legal battle. McGuinness athletic director Gary Savely presented 33 signed petitions from Class 6A and 5A to the board Wednesday asking that no school be required to move up to Class 6A. The current rule forces private-school athletic teams to move up a class if they meet certain requirements in every sport but football. Twenty-nine of the petitions were accepted due to four not being signed by the proper voting delegate from the school. McGuinness has filed a lawsuit against the OSSAA regarding the rule, but the case remains in the discovery stages. “Hopefully speed (up the process), get it out for a vote and if it’s approved it can be in effect for next year,” Savely said. “That’s what we’d like to see happen.” OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley said the board voted to include Class 4A in the survey since that class will also be affected by the change should a Class 5A school be forced to drop a classification. If the surveys go well, a referendum ballot will likely be approved in April to be sent to member schools to make a change to the rule, which was already changed by member ship Wednesday to uncouple boys and girls teams should a school be forced to move classifications. “I wish we could have done this a year ago, but it is what it is now,” Sheakley said. “I think it’s good what they’re doing. It’s still in the time frame McGuinness is asking for and it’s still going to do the same thing they want it to do.” BASEBALL STATE TOURNAMENT SITES SET The sites for the spring baseball state tournaments were unanimously approved with Class A and Class B being the lone classes to play at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.
