Names like Larry Rose of U.S. Grant — one of the state’s greatest 1-mile runners ever — or Glen Long of Douglass, who is part of two such forgotten records, or Nina Thompson of John Marshall, who had a hand (foot?) in four of them.
Prep Parade: Remembering Oklahoma's forgotten state record holders
By Scott Wright Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Apr 28, 2016The spring of 1982 was quite a year for high school track in Oklahoma. Four state records were broken that year — three by girls and one by a boy. Records that will never be broken. If you browse the current state records in track and field, you won't see the names of Laura Blackburn or Rhonda Lewis. You'll see Bixby hurdler Victor Moore, but not for what he did in 1982. Those runners and several others are part of a list of the state's forgotten record holders. Names like Larry Rose of U.S. Grant — one of the state's greatest 1-mile runners ever — or Glen Long of Douglass, who is part of two such forgotten records, or Nina Thompson of John Marshall, who had a hand (foot?) in four of them. They're the names of the pre-metric track and field world. After the 1982 season, Oklahoma and the rest of the country switched from yardage distances for running events to metric measurements. The 100-yard dash became the 100-meter dash. The 2-mile run became the 3,200 meters. And with that, the slate of state records was wiped clear. It's hard to say how many of the old records would still be standing today. All but six records set between 1983-1990 have been broken. Sixteen of the 34 current state records were set in the last 10 years. Four — two for boys and two for girls — of the marks set in 1983 still stand. One of those belongs to Moore, a Bixby hurdler who has the unique distinction of being on both lists. In 1982, he set the record in the 120-yard high hurdles at 13.6 seconds in the OSU Relays. In 1983, he set the 300-meter hurdle record at 36.80, which still stands as the metric record. Yet 30 records will stand forever in yardage-measured events. At least for a day, let them not be forgotten. Here are Oklahoma's yardage-distance track record holders: BOYS Yardage Distances 100: 9.48, Jim Evans, Tulsa Washington, 1980, State meet at Western Heights. 220 Straightaway: 20.5, Glen Long, Douglass, 1965, State meet at Choctaw. 220 Curve: 21.0, William Snoddy, Tulsa Hale, 1975, State prelims at UCO. 440: 47.4, Jody Jimerson, Norman, 1976, Moore Invitational. 880: 1:51.7, Jim Davis, Lawton, 1975, State meet at UCO.

MUSTANG'S THOMAS TO ANNOUNCE COLLEGE CHOICE SATURDAY Mustang defensive tackle Deontre Thomas has been one of the more surprising football recruits in the 2017 class to burst onto the scene. And the 6-foot-2, 265-pound defensive tackle exploded. Now, he says he's ready to make his college decision. He announced Michigan, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Arizona State and Texas A&M as his final five schools, and will make his commitment on Saturday. The announcement is expected to be posted on his Twitter page around 1 p.m. Thomas had more than a dozen schools to pick from, though neither Oklahoma nor Oklahoma State offered. A 265-pound defensive tackle might sound undersized for Power 5 conferences, but his technique, along with a frame that can carry another 30 pounds make him attractive to recruiters. “He's an every-snap guy,” Mustang coach Jeremy Dombek said. “He's quick, he plays with great hands and great leverage. “He's not huge, but they see the potential with his frame to get him up to 285 or 290.” Dombek says everything seemed to change for Thomas late last season. “The last four or five weeks, the light bulb came on for him,” the coach said. “If you watched him against Tulsa Union and Broken Arrow, they couldn't block him. He was splitting double-teams and chasing down screens. That's what the college coaches have seen — a guy who is a relentless pursuer of the football and very athletic.” MCGUINNESS' CONDON GAINING MAJOR COLLEGE INTEREST Michigan became the latest school to visit McGuinness sophomore offensive lineman Owen Condon as he continues his rapid rise on the recruiting circuit. Irish coach Justin Jones confirmed Michigan's visit Wednesday to see the 6-foot-7, 315-pound tackle who recently picked up scholarship offers from Ohio, SMU and Tulsa. “It's hard to find a guy that is that big that moves as well as he does,” Jones said. “Not only does he move he's a bender who has flexibility and he moves his feet really well, which makes him a perfect tackle at the next level. I think he'll be recruited by a lot of guys across the nations just because of that.” Michigan also visited Southmoore, which has a pair of sophomore stars, quarterback Casey Thompson and offensive lineman Brey Walker, an Oklahoma commitment. Condon has rapidly added weight in the offseason, going from 275 pounds last season to his current weight. That's why Jones feels recruiters are paying more attention. “He's just developing every day as far as being a football player and he's hitting that maturity to where he's starting to grow into his body as well,” Jones said. “Those 35-40 pounds that he's put on shows that he can carry that frame.” HARDING PREP'S ANSELM UZUEGBUNEM SIGNS WITH NOC-TONKAWA After helping Harding Prep to one of its best basketball seasons, finishing the regular season ranked in the Class 4A top 10, senior forward Anselm Uzuegbunem has signed to continue his career at Northern Oklahoma College of Tonkawa. Uzuegbunem signed his letter of intent on Wednesday. The powerfully built 6-foot-7 forward averaged 19.1 points and 10.0 rebounds as a senior. *Staff writer Jacob Unruh contributed to this report

Prep Parade: In football coaching, give youth a chance
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Apr 6, 2016On the high school football calendar, this is hiring season. Between now and the start of spring practice in a little more than a month, athletic directors with head coaching vacancies to fill are sifting through resumes with the hope that their next great coach is somewhere in the pile. A few programs with a good amount of tradition — places like Westmoore, Deer Creek, Purcell, Tulsa East Central and others — are in the hunt for a coach. Many of them want someone with previous head coaching experience. Some even state it in the job announcement. But why? Throughout the course of a school year, I interact with more coaches than I can count, head or assistant. I come across several head coaches who I would never let my son play for. And I see just as many assistants who seem destined to be leaders, yet they can't get their opportunity because they don't have the words “head coach” anywhere on their job history. Just in this school year alone, I've seen too many incredibly successful coaches in football and basketball who were given their first head job within the last five years to believe previous experience is a necessary job requirement. I'm not trying to discount experience. It's incredibly valuable. If there's a guy with a successful track record as a head coach, and you can bring him in to run your program, go for it. But experience alone doesn't make a good head coach. A coordinator who has worked under respected coaches, in successful programs, and has the intangible qualities needed to be a leader of young people, shouldn't be ignored simply because he's never been a head coach, or because the first digit in his age is a 2. Every great head coach got his start because someone was willing to give him a chance, despite his lack of experience. STATE CHAMPIONS FILL WEST ROSTERS FOR ALL-STATE GIRLS BASKETBALL In a year when state championships were dominated by teams on the west side of the state, the Oklahoma Coaches Association's All-State girls basketball rosters reflect it. The Large and Small West rosters include a total of seven players who won state championships last month, led by a pair of Midwest City players who earned the Class 6A title. Bomber seniors Chinna Fair and Asia Davis are joined on the Large West squad by 5A champion Hillary Hurst of Woodward and 4A champ Aaliyah Endsley of Newcastle. On the Small West roster, 3A champion Alva is represented by Oklahoma State signee Jaden Hobbs, with Class A champion Taylor Hedrick of Seiling and 2A champ Taylor Cell of Fairview also on the team. The girls All-State games will be played July 27 at the Mabee Center in Tulsa. Here are the full rosters: Large West: Chinna Fair, Midwest City; Ashley Gomez, Westmoore; Hillary Hurst, Woodward; Micayla Haynes, Guthrie; Jamie Bonnarens, Cache; Aaliyah Endsley, Newcastle; Asia Davis, Midwest City; Dominique Golightly, Chickasha; Shamika Smith, Carl Albert; Hannah Anderson, Elk City. Coaches: Jennifer Schneeberger, Blanchard; Miles Thompson, Elgin. Large East: Aaliyah Wilson, Muskogee; Brice Calip, Sapulpa; Mikayla Shulanberger, Skiatook; Monique Tramble, Shawnee; Katie Kirkhart, Hilldale; Carsyn Spurgeon, Vinita; Alexis Gaulden, Broken Arrow; Jada Ford, Muskogee; Grace Garrison, Oologah; Rachel Skalnik, Owasso. Coaches: Donnie Martin, Pryor; Lori Martin, Pryor. Small West: Jaden Hobbs, Alva; Karson Maple, Cashion; Taylor Hedrick, Seiling; Tyra Aska, Coyle; Kelsey Johnson, Washington; Tiarra Davis, Pond Creek-Hunter; Nicole Middleton, Chisholm; Taylor Cell, Fairview; Morgan Meacham, Heritage Hall; Ashli Richardson, Calumet. Coaches: Sam Hale, Mangum; Jason Fulks, Stratford. Small East: Madison Nickens, Westville; Sydney Brinlee, Latta; Kelsey Castlebury, Glencoe; Rainey Mauzey, Red Oak; Shelby Fleming, Asher; Briana Merchant, Beggs; Courtney Condit, Salina; Jordan Ivey, Preston; Shaelyn Ward, Lincoln Christian; Jentry Brown, Howe. Coaches: Roland Branton, Boswell; Mike Converse, Wright City. BIG ALL-CITY BASKETBALL GAMES SET FOR MAY 26 Del City High School will once again play host to the Big All-City boys and girls basketball games on May 26. The girls game will tip off at 6:30 p.m., with the boys to follow at 8. The girls will have a 3-point contest at halftime, and the boys will have a slam dunk and 3-point contest. Coaches and team rosters for the games will be announced at a later date. BULLDOG INVITATIONAL NEEDS EXTRA HOLES Neither the team nor individual titles were settled after 36 holes at the Edmond Memorial Bulldog Invitational on Tuesday. Edmond North ultimately edged Memorial by one stroke in the team playoff after both posted 589 totals through two rounds. Edmond Memorial senior McCain Schellhardt, who has signed with Missouri-Kansas City, defeated Edmond North junior Laken Hinton in a four-hole playoff to take the individual crown. Schellhardt and Hinton posted two-round totals of 143 to tie for first. CURRAN SCOTT JOINING TULSA BASKETBALL PROGRAM Following a successful freshman season at UNC-Charlotte, Edmond native Curran Scott announced on Tuesday that he will return to his home state and join the Tulsa men's basketball program. Scott, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard, averaged 10.5 points per game and shot a team-best 43.9 percent from 3-point range this past season, playing for Enid native Mark Price at Charlotte. “I want to thank everyone who invested their time and efforts into not only my basketball career but me as a person during my time here,” Scott posted on Twitter Tuesday. “At this point in time, my family and I think it would be best for me to leave Charlotte and pursue an opportunity closer to home at the University of Tulsa.” Tulsa graduates nine players off its current roster, including its top two scorers — both shooting guards, including Edmond Memorial product James Woodard. COLLEGE POSTCARD: NSU'S CHARTER LAWSON WINS WEEKLY HONOR Maybe the name of the tournament should've been a giveaway that Northeastern State golfer Charter Lawson was in line for a good performance. The Mustang High School grad and NSU senior shot rounds of 70-73 to finish fifth, one shot out of first, at the Mustang Intercollegiate — named for the mascot of host school Western New Mexico University — at Palm Valley Golf Club in Goodyear, Ariz., over the weekend. For her efforts, Lawson was named the MIAA Women's Golfer of the Week by the conference on Wednesday.

MUSKOGEE'S WILSON WINS GATORADE AWARD Muskogee senior Aaliyah Wilson was named the Gatorade Oklahoma Girls Basketball Player of the Year for a second straight season last week. Wilson is now a finalist for the national award. She was The Oklahoman's Super 5 Player of the Year last season and was named earlier this season a McDonald's All-American. She averaged 18 points and eight rebounds per game, leading the Roughers to last week's Class 6A state tournament. They advanced to the semifinals where they were eliminated in double overtime by eventual champion Midwest City. Wilson has signed with Arkansas and is ranked No. 30 in the 2016 class by ESPN's HoopGurlz rankings. She also has a 3.62 weighted GPA and has volunteered at the Special Olympics, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and 2 Much 2 Lose. The award recognizes athletic excellence along with academic achievement and character demonstrated on and off the court. CASHION'S VAUGHN RANEY COMMITS TO ROGERS STATE One of the Oklahoma City area's top small-school players has made his college decision. Cashion point guard Vaughn Raney, a 6-foot-2 senior, verbally committed to Rogers State, according to his family. Raney averaged 20 points per game over the last two seasons, while also leading the team in rebounds and assists. The Wildcats finished the season 19-7.

The Tigers are currently ranked No. 11 nationally in the InterMat.com Fab 50, behind wrestling-centric schools like top-ranked Blair Academy of New Jersey, and private schools from Ohio, Pennsylvania and California.
Prep Parade: Tuttle wrestling not just another small-school dynasty
By Scott Wright Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Feb 24, 2016Two weekends ago, Tuttle was hardly challenged on its way to its seventh consecutive Class 4A dual state wrestling championship. On Saturday, the Tigers will be looking for their eighth consecutive team championship at the individual state tournament inside State Fair Arena. But don't be too quick to simply pass Tuttle off as just another small-school powerhouse. The Tigers are currently ranked No. 11 nationally in the InterMat.com Fab 50, behind wrestling-centric schools like top-ranked Blair Academy of New Jersey, and private schools from Ohio, Pennsylvania and California. For a non-wrestling comparison, imagine it was the Tuttle boys basketball team ranked No. 11 in a respected national poll, surrounded by the likes of Findlay Prep, Montverde and Oak Hill Academy, where Kevin Durant spent his junior season. Tuttle is one of the highest ranked public schools on the InterMat list, and it's a collection of wrestlers from a high school with about 500 students and a town of 6,300. Last year's Tigers advanced 10 wrestlers to the state championship finals at their respective weights, believed to be a record. And nine of those 10 finalists returned this season. Twelve Tuttle wrestlers qualified for the state tournament, which begins Friday morning at State Fair Arena. But accomplishments like that have come against other Class 4A competition. How have the Tigers earned their national ranking? In January at one of the state's biggest wrestling tournaments, the Geary Invitational, Tuttle finished second — behind Blair Academy. Tuttle had 141.5 points, with Class 6A's best teams, Choctaw, Broken Arrow and Sand Springs, more than 50 points behind. Before that, Tuttle had impressive performances at tournaments in Minnesota and Kansas City, winning the latter event. Still, it wasn't a sudden rise. Tuttle has been in the InterMat Fab 50 for the last five seasons. Over the years, programs like Midwest City, Del City, Choctaw, El Reno, Perry and others have had impressive runs. But what Tuttle is doing now is special. “Success breeds success, and the kids put a lot of hard work into it,” coach Matt Surber said. “We have a small group of people who do a lot of work around here, and a good group of kids have come through to keep it going.” TONY RAYBURN II MOVES TO EDMOND SANTA FE Edmond Santa Fe just lost the son of one former Oklahoma football player off its defense, and now it has added another one. Tony Rayburn II finalized his move from Deer Creek to Edmond Santa Fe, and will be eligible for his senior football season next fall. His father played defensive back for Barry Switzer in the mid-1980s, including the 1985 national championship team. Rayburn II is a 5-foot-11, 187-pound junior who could provide immediate help on a Santa Fe defense that graduated almost all of its starters. He could also help at receiver. The OSSAA has cleared Rayburn to participate with the Wolves' track team this spring as well, according to his father. Last season, the Wolves had Mike Coats Jr., who has signed to play at Lamar next fall. His father played linebacker at OU in the 1990s. FORMER YUKON COACH TODD WILSON INTRODUCED AT ELK CITY Todd Wilson is headed back to the west side of the state after spending the last two years in Cleveland. The former Yukon football coach was introduced as Elk City's new head man on Tuesday. Wilson turned Yukon into a perennial playoff team, reaching the postseason in his final five years. He left after the 2013 season and spent the last two years at Cleveland, the first as the head coach and the second as offensive coordinator. The move brings Wilson closer to his hometown of Weatherford. He replaces Bill Williams, who resigned last month after two years guiding the Elks. OTCA INDUCTS 10 INTO HALL OF FAME Ten coaches were inducted into the Oklahoma Tennis Coaches Association Hall of Fame last week. Current Yukon coach Dick Villaflor, who spent most of his career at Heritage Hall and won 33 team state championships, headed the class. It also included Ada coach Skip Griese, Ponca City tennis icon Wally Smith, former Midwest City coach Dewey Allen, Cascia Hall's Father William Perez, 50-year college and high school coach Francis Baxter, longtime OTCA board member Steve “Big Daddy” Larimer, longtime high school coach Kate Kisner Cushing, former Broken Arrow and Jenks coach Bob Holland and Enid's Darell Herndon.

The Deer Creek community is funneling money into the growth of the school, and the facilities are as nice as any around.
Prep Parade: Deer Creek football job opening should draw lots of attention
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | Feb 17, 2016EDMOND — James Edwards probably had a tedious job filtering through his new emails Wednesday morning. The Deer Creek athletic director, Edwards likely began receiving emails, phone calls and everything else from people interested in his suddenly vacant head football coaching position. Grant Gower resigned after eight seasons to take the offensive coordinator position at Oklahoma Baptist, opening the door on the most intriguing coaching vacancy so far. The Tulsa Washington job has a strong draw because of the Hornets' track record of success. Del City offers similar intrigue as well. But neither of those jobs has the other perks Deer Creek presents. We're talking about a school that won the Class 3A football title in 2000, and now has risen to 6A Division II. Their growth from a small community to the large-school level has been compared to the way Jenks grew up on the edge of Tulsa a few decades ago. The Deer Creek community is funneling money into the growth of the school, and the facilities are as nice as any around. The Antlers were a regular in the 5A playoffs under Gower, and through two years, 6A-II hasn't proven to be much more challenging than the top of 5A. The west side of 6A-II will be loaded with playoff-caliber teams next year with Deer Creek's rise coinciding with Putnam City dropping from the upper division of 6A. That drops the Antlers into a district with Midwest City, Lawton, Choctaw, Putnam City, Stillwater, Enid and a much improved Putnam City West team. But Deer Creek continues to blossom on the athletic front. With the right coaching hire, the future could be unlimited at Deer Creek. MUSTANG'S BLAKE WILLIAMS HEADED TO CANADA Prep school isn't uncommon in some sports, like basketball, but in football, it's a more unique phenomenon. That makes Mustang tight end Blake Williams' already fascinating journey even more interesting. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound senior — who played his first and only varsity season with the Broncos last fall because of a rare medical condition — has passed over a couple of Division I scholarship offers, as well as multiple preferred walk-on spots, to continue his football career at Canadian Prep Football Academy. The Oklahoman chronicled Williams' battle with Dysautonomia, a rare condition that hinders the body's automatic functions. It kept him off the field for most of his high school career and caused him to miss an entire year of school. Finally healthy, he played his entire senior season in a tight end/fullback role and gained college attention because of his combination of size and athletic ability, as well as his soft hands as a receiver. At Canadian Prep, Williams will play for coach Greg McArthur, who caught passes from Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers while they were in college together at Cal. Williams had multiple options this year, but reclassifying to the 2017 class will give him more on-field experience before he tries to make his way to the college level. Prep school might not be a common path for high school football players, but nothing else about Williams' journey has been common. RUNNING BACKS HOGAN, LEWIS MAKE COLLEGE CHOICES Two of the state's most heavily recruited running backs chose not to sign letters of intent two weeks ago on National Signing Day, but both of them have now found college homes. Norman North's Quan Hogan, a versatile 6-foot-1, 220-pound senior, announced his commitment to Southeast Missouri State on Monday. He had multiple Division I offers, but those schools filled their running back spots in this recruiting class before Hogan made his decision. Lone Grove running back Jeremy Lewis, who led the state with 2,966 yards, is planning to sign with Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas, later this week. The school is located southeast of Dallas. Lewis had been verbally committed to Arkansas State and has offers from Nebraska and a few other schools.

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

Campbell: NOC Enid's Howard has come a long way
Bruce Campbell, Associated Press | Feb 6, 2016Don't blame Bryan Howard if he savors the moment a little longer when he makes his debut as the head coach of the NOC Enid Lady Jets softball team today against Pratt, Kan., in a 1 p.m. doubleheader against Pratt, Kan., at Failing Field. He certainly paid his dues to make his living in a profession where he got a late start. He always dreamed of being a coach, but family obligations led him to go into the tiling business he learned from his father growing up in Henryetta. Ten years after graduating from Henryetta High in 1991, he and high school buddy Corey Pitts (who once coached at Medford and now is at Canadian) decided to go back to school at Northeastern State to follow that dream. For years, he went to school in the day, was a volunteer football coach at Broken Arrow, coached his daughters traveling teams and then worked until 1 a.m. or 2 a.m. setting tile. The sacrifices have been worth it so far as he's led Washington and Mustang to high school state championships. "I have a different level of appreciation of where I am because of what I went through,'' Howard said. "It was not easy, but I never stopped coaching. I did a lot of coaching for free ... whatever I could do to get my foot in the door.'' The work was worth it to get the degree to open more doors. "I was a lay coach at Broken Arrow (in football) and I would watch other guys that I would out-work,'' he said. "I knew the only difference between me and you is a piece of paper, that degree. It drove me nuts. I was motivated to keep pushing and I finally got it done.'' That experience caused him not to be the typical coach. "When you see me on the field, I won't be that quiet softball coach,'' he said. "Maybe that football attitude comes out. I've been told I have great passion in what I do and I think the players feed off that. I coach softball like I coach football. I don't hide anything. My girls believe I will coach them up and will get them do do things they normally couldn't accomplish.'' He believes that's the way his Mustang team, with five freshmen starters, was able to beat Broken Arrow in the 2014 Class 6A state finals. He said his No. 1 priority is creating a "family atmosphere'' where players put teammates above themselves. He said that translates into greatness. "Broken Arrow was probably more talented than we were, but we were the closer team and that's the team that wins,'' he said. That family atmosphere extends beyond in the field in helping each other in a team-mandatory study hall and community service. The team has visited residents in nursing homes and participated in Valentine's Day related activities there. He was ready for his biggest adjustment to college — recruiting — which he did while coaching traveling teams. He built up contacts at both the high school and summer ball level. Howard said as a coach he has to adjust to adapt to different trends. "I'm doing all the same things that I've done at the other places,'' Howard said. "There's a big difference in the level of maturity at this level. It makes coaching that much better. I'm really fortunate to have leaders like Jamie (Lowrie), Brooke (Tate) and Peyton (Calhoun) to show me stuff. They have coached me as much as I've coached them. I've been around good ball for a long time and I think I can recognize what good ball looks like. We definitely have it here.'' He is brash about recruiting for NOC Enid and the advantages it has been in a bigger area than most of his rivals. He likes having an artificial turf field and an indoor facility. "I'm not afraid to tell the other schools that we're better than Seminole State or Connors,'' he said. "Our city is better. We have a mall, a Buffalo Wild Wings ... a nice downtown .... it's easy to sell.'' Another big draw is the longevity of fellow coaches Scott Morris (women's basketball), Greg Shamburg (men's basketball) and Raydon Leaton (baseball) who have been at the school since Day 1. He grew up one of seven brothers, but now he's surrounded by women with two daughters — Kristan, 23 and Tymber, 20 and two granddaughters. "If I need advice, I can go to them,'' Howard said "Having two daughters that age has given me more of an edge and I use it in recruiting. It's more natural for me to work around.''

Oklahomans who have won Super Bowl rings share their stories with The Oklahoman.
Super Bowl: A look at Oklahomans with their Super Bowl rings
Berry Tramel, Jenni Carlson, John Helsley | Feb 5, 2016[img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]4074717[/img] Super Bowl 50 is Sunday, and by the end of the night more than 50 players from either the Carolina Panthers or Denver Broncos will join the exclusive club of men who can boast of owning Super Bowl rings. We caught up with a few Oklahomans who were fortunate enough to join the illustrious club and picked their brains about what their rings mean to them, where they are now and all the wacky stuff that might have happened to them in between. "For me, it's just a very, very strong sense of achievement," said Clifford Thrift, the former Purcell linebacker who went on to win Super Bowl 20 with Chicago. "When I look at the Super Bowl ring, it's not just the fact that we won a Super Bowl, but I got to be part of something that literally made history. It's not just about that achievement, but all the little achievements getting to that point. That's really why I cherish it so much and wear it all the time. Not a reminder just that we won that game, bit all the little victories." [pagebreak] R.W. McQuarters, Tulsa Washington Super Bowl 42, 44 [img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]2990364[/img] "The ring is called the 'Ten Table Ring.' We had the captains, Michael Strahan, Eli Manning and probably Amani Toomer at that time, plus some of the older guys who had been in the New York system at the time and were a little bit older than I was. They had a meeting and came up with how we want the ring to be, here’s what the owners like, here’s what the players like. It was sort of a voice between the owners and the locker room. "The name of the ring is the 'Ten Table Ring' because you can basically see the ring from 10 tables away. That’s the theory behind the ring. Sometimes people ask to see it when they come by, but I don’t keep it at home. It doesn’t bother me that they ask. There are certain things I’d like to see that I haven’t seen before, and I’m sure if I had an opportunity to see them, I’d probably ask. I pretty much keep it put up. When I first got it, I wore it for a while. Then I put it up. A holiday, I might put it on. For me, it means hard work. A lot of perseverance. A lot of adversity. A lot of good. A lot of bad. Just the process of starting football all the way to the end and everything in between." [pagebreak] Tony Casillas, Tulsa East Central Super Bowl 27, 28 [img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]3025606[/img] “I don’t wear it as much as people think. The first thing they ask you, ‘Where are your Super Bowlrings?’ One, it gives away my age. The ongoing joke around here is, ‘What do you call a Dallas Cowboy with a Super Bowl ring? Ancient.’ I used to wear them a lot more. I wore them quite a bit when I first got ‘em. Believe it or not, I’ll leave ‘em laying around, in my kitchen, on the nightstand, stupid places. I was actually going on a USO Tour about five years ago. I was going to take it with me. I couldn’t find it. I was like, anxiety attack, calling my insurance. Finally caught up with me being careless where I put ‘em. The day before, right after Christmas, sick to my stomach, a space in the very back of my closet, a place under my clothes, there’s my Super Bowl ring, right on a jewelry box. Seems like the last three-four years, kind of bring ’em out, because it becomes a timeless piece. "There’s a market for older players because of what we did in that era. People love ‘em. Wow. Never seen a Super Bowl ring. They’re looking at ‘em, their eyes light up. It’s like Christmas. As you get older, you realize the value of it, what it represents. When you’re actually in the moment, you don’t think about it. Everyone wants to try ‘em on. OK, first time I did that, little more naïve about it. ‘I don’t care.’ I gave my ring to someone, and they dropped it. Four sapphire diamonds, two karats each. And I lost a diamond. I was so (ticked) off. I looked all over it. Wore it about a month, looked like it had a hole in it. Had to get it replaced. So I’m not doing that anymore.” [pagebreak] Spencer Tillman, Tulsa Edison Super Bowl 24 [img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]3534954[/img] “There’s an old Hebraic proverb that says don’t hide your candle under a bushel. I don’t wear it every day, but I will wear it to big events or events where it might be a conversation piece. And when I’m on television, I’ll wear it. I was doing Sean Hannity’s show, and he puts on my ring, and you know how he likes to throw his football? Sean had just lost about 14 pounds. He said, ‘Look, I’m doing the next segment. Give me your ring.’ So, he puts on the ring. He had the ring on and he threw a football to break, and the ring comes flying off. It goes sailing across the corner of the wall. You hear one of the camera people, go, ‘Whoaaaa!’ I’m like, ‘Whoa, what?’ He’s like, ‘Did you see that?’ I said, ‘No.’ He said, ‘Good.’ So, Sean threw my ring across the studio floor there because his fingers were too small for it. But when I picked it up, it hadn’t been damaged at all. “I remember George Seifert delivering a speech — Bill Walsh had moved upstairs and was in kind of a GM role — and I remember him giving a pregame speech. He went around and related to each player based on their core values. I remember him going to Joe Montana, and saying, ‘Joe, you’ve been taking pilot lessons, I know it’s not cheap. You win this game, they’re paid for. In matter of fact, you may even be able to get yourself a small Cessna or something like that.’ He did that to four or five different guys. He said, ‘Spencer, I know you’re into broadcasting. Believe me, you win a couple of these, your value skyrockets.’ It’s like a degree in some ways — it only gives you an opportunity to compete. How do you convert an asset to a benefit. That, in essence, is what you’re doing with that ring.” [pagebreak] Tony Peters, Pauls Valley Super Bowl 17 [img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]4059879[/img] “When you always have this goal of reaching that pinnacle and, of course, to be recognized as a world champion, it’s quite an honor. You know that a lot of people go their entire career without having an opportunity, so you’re very appreciative of that.” Peters’ son, Justin, said, “He’d let us take it for show and tell when we were kids, so you’d take it to school. He’d just put it in our backpacks. It was always kind of fun having that growing up.” [pagebreak] Jon Kolb, Owasso Super Bowl 9, 10, 13, 14 [img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]635637[/img] “We didn’t even know we got Super Bowl rings. My roommate at Oklahoma State, Terry Brown, was the one who broke the news to me. We had just finished eating dinner the night before the Super Bowl. He said, ‘Oh, look at the ring you’re going to get.’ He showed me his (NFC) championship ring from the year before with the Minnesota Vikings. ‘You’re going to get one of these.’ He was over there laughing at me. I went back to the hotel and told my roommate, Sam Davis, we were getting rings. He said, ‘really?’ Most of us didn’t know you got a ring. It was the game that was important. "One reason Pittsburgh won four Super Bowls in six years, it was never about the ring. It was about the process. Now, it tends to be about the ring. I never wanted it to be just once. It was always, ‘that was fun, let’s do it again.’ My Super Bowl rings are in Oklahoma (in the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame). We (the Steelers) were together a month ago. I don’t remember seeing any rings. My son was a wrestler. He won a championship medal, I said, ‘put it in a drawer and move on.’ That’s how we did things.” [pagebreak] Randy Hughes, Tulsa Memorial Super Bowl 12 [img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]2748675[/img] “My Super Bowl ring disappeared out of my house about seven or eight years ago. I don’t know exactly what happened to the ring. It was at Christmas time and all my kids were in college. Must have had 100 people in and out of the house over Christmas. My ring disappeared. I never replaced it. But I haven’t had it in about five years. I am getting ready to re-order it in the next few days. I’m not sure whether mine was taken or I just misplaced it, but it disappeared. I was upset about it. I loved it. I remembered when I had worn it last. Put it on my nightstand. I didn’t wear it every day, so I didn’t notice missing it for a few days. One day I was looking for it, couldn’t find it. Haven’t seen anything on it on the Internet.” [pagebreak] Oklahomans with Super Bowl rings [img width="" height="" style="" render="w620"]4074899[/img] HIGH SCHOOL PLAYER POS.

By Scott Munn | Jan 4, 2016A farewell to people with Oklahoma ties who enjoyed the game day experience: • Horn Chen, 83, of Bannockburn, Ill., owned the Oklahoma City Blazers of the revived Central Hockey League. In 1992, longtime hockey executive Ray Miron approached Chen about reviving hockey in the south. Not only did Chen agree to fund the league operations, he owned and operated its original six franchises — the Blazers, Tulsa Oilers, Wichita Thunder, Memphis RiverKings, Fort Worth Fire, and Dallas Freeze. The businessman later owned CHL teams in San Antonio, Indianapolis, and Topeka. Chen also owned several teams in minor league baseball and basketball and arena football. Chen also owned the Canadian Football League's Ottawa Roughriders and was a minority investor in the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets. • Wayne Heath Sr., 79, of McLoud.

The banking executive qualified for the British Senior Amateur. In the last 10 years, he shot his age more than 50 times. • Jeannine Horn Flow, 81, of Oklahoma City enjoyed playing golf at Westbury Country Club. The retired Southwestern Bell employee had three holes-in-one. • Lance Nichols, 23, of Norman spent 12 years in judo training. He won several state championships. • Bobby Roberts, 44, of Ada built race car engines. • Charles Turnbull, 91, of Edmond was an avid cyclist who took several long-distance rides across the U.S. • Joseph Driver, 20, of Custer City played high school basketball at Arapaho. • Alfred Adams, 85, of Moore. He captained the Moore Lions football team in 1947. • Travis Doherty, 38, of Quapaw loved martial arts. A second-degree blackbelt in Go Jue Ryu.

The retired aircraft mechanic and volunteer firefighter was a fan of Garber High sports, the OU Sooners, Chicago Cubs and the OKC Thunder. • Ivan Munoz, 19, of Oklahoma City played baseball at Vici High School. He won several awards, including Freshman of the Year and Most Improved Offensive Player. • Larry Dobbins, 69, quarterbacked Thomas High School and Northwestern Oklahoma State. • Jamie Monroe, 42, of Ardmore played high school baseball for the hometown Tigers. He was named Player of the Year by the Daily Ardmoreite newspaper. An Oklahoma Sooners and Pittsburgh Steelers fan. • Ramon de los Santos, 66, was a pitcher and shortstop for the '72 Oklahoma City 89ers.

High school football roundup: Coyle advances to Class C title game
By Scott Wright Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Nov 30, 2015Coyle only started playing football in 2004, and on Saturday night, the Bluejackets will compete for a state championship. Coyle defeated powerhouse Cherokee 42-22 in a semifinal game Monday night at Enid High School to earn its first-ever trip to a football state final. “This is a dream come true,” said coach Shane Weathers, who started the program 11 seasons ago. After Coyle fumbled inside its own 20 early in the third quarter, the defense held on four straight downs to get the ball back. Moments later, Jared Weathers broke free for a 71-yard touchdown run that put the Bluejackets in control up 28-14. Weathers finished with three touchdown runs, while DeShaun Anderson had two and Lashay Johnson had one. The Coyle defense allowed just 186 total yards. “It was a defensive game, back and forth for a long time,” Shane Weathers said. “It was a chess match. We'd try something and they'd try something. They changed defenses, and we changed defenses. It just kept going, but we came through it. “Jared really controlled the whole game with his offense, with his feet and with his arm. He made some crucial third-down throws. I'm really proud.” Shattuck defeated Grandfield 14-0 on the other side of the bracket and will face Coyle at a neutral site to be determined. TWO-POINT CONVERSION LIFTS ADAIR The last three years, Adair's season has ended against Davis. Two of those games were decided by one point. On Monday night, after quarterback B.J. Bradbury's touchdown pass with 27 seconds left, the Warriors found themselves trailing Davis by a point and tempted fate again. Bradbury ran in the two-point conversion and Adair advanced to the Class 2A semifinals with a 36-35 win over Davis. No. 1 Adair will face No. 2 Chisholm Saturday at a neutral site to be determined. LINCOLN CHRISTIAN HOLDS OFF SULPHUR Boise State commit Micah Wilson of Lincoln Christian threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score in a 35-27 win over Sulphur in the Class 3A quarterfinals. Lincoln will face Jones Saturday at a site to be determined. HOMINY RUNS OVER MOORELAND DEFENSE The Mooreland defense had allowed 13 points the previous eight weeks combined, yet Hominy matched that total by halftime on its way to a 34-15 win. Up next for the Bucks will be No. 1 Stratford Saturday at a neutral site. Stratford defeated Rejoice Christian 40-14.

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.”
