Sallisaw High School Varsity Boys Football
Dec 18, 2014
Saturday, the 41-year-old Wells coaches his alma mater, Utah State, against Texas-El Paso in the New Mexico Bowl.
Matt Wells, the pride of Sallisaw, is a rising star in college coaching
BY BERRY TRAMEL | Dec 18, 2014Back in the 1980s, when Sallisaw dentist Jim Wells was the public-address voice of Black Diamond football, he would pop into the coaches’ office before games, his young sons in tow, and get the lineup. One night, Sallisaw coach Ron Etheridge pointed over at Matt Wells and said, “Doc, look at this boy.” Matt Wells, maybe five years old, had a yellow legal pad and had drawn out the X’s and O’s, in perfect I formation manner, to mimic Sallisaw’s offense. “Look,” said Etheridge, “there’s not a mistake on it. He’s going to be a coach.” Good call. Saturday, 41-year-old Matt Wells, the pride of Sallisaw, coaches his alma mater, Utah State, against Texas-El Paso in the New Mexico Bowl. Wells is a rising star in the profession. His first Utah State team went 9-5 last season and upset 24th-ranked Northern Illinois 21-14 in the Poinsettia Bowl, even though star quarterback Chuckie Keeton missed the final eight games with an injury. Now the Aggies are 9-4 despite a rash of injuries that have forced Wells to use four quarterbacks. Utah State beat in-state rival Brigham Young in Provo for the first time since 1978 and is seeking just the second double-digit victory total in school history. Wells, a 1992 Sallisaw graduate, is building upon the success of Gary Andersen, who hired Wells after the 2010 season. The 2011 Aggies went 7-6, Utah State’s first winning season since 1996 and just the third in 30 years. In 2012, Wells became offensive coordinator, and Utah State went 11-2 and won the WAC title. Andersen got the Wisconsin job, Wells was hired to replace him and no one in Logan, Utah, is unhappy. Last spring, Utah State athletic director Scott Barnes signed Wells to a contract extension through 2018, worth $800,000 a year. Wells was thought to be high on Oregon State’s list to replace Mike Riley, before Andersen surprisingly left Wisconsin to take the Beaver job. “The fact that he played the game and he is young makes him valuable, because he has a real insight into players,” sports agent Ken Vierra told the Salt Lake Tribune. “He has a good offensive mind, and people like that.” That mind was apparent at an early age, although current Sallisaw coach Scott Bethel, a high school teammate of Wells, wasn’t sure Wells would go into coaching. “That kind of surprised me,” Bethel said. “I thought he’d be a doctor, smart as he was, dad being a dentist. As smart as he was, and being around athletics, I see how he became as good a coach as he is.” Virgil Terry’s not surprised. He was Wells’ offensive coordinator at Sallisaw and later the Black Diamonds’ head coach. In 1990, Wells’ junior year, Sallisaw made the Class 5A state semifinals. But the Black Diamonds weren’t as good in 1991. “He was one of the few things we had going for us,” Terry said. The Black Diamonds were in a tough district and were underdogs against Okmulgee. Terry designed a gameplan that gave Wells plenty of options to change the play. On game night, Wells ran “maybe four or five of the plays I called … we won a game we weren’t supposed to win, 15-14. And he’s carried that over.” Wells was recruited by Arkansas, Texas and OU but ended up without a scholarship offer from any of the three. The Sooners signed Chad Davis, the Longhorns Shea Morenz and the Razorbacks Barry Lunney. During the recruiting process, Arkansas offensive coordinator Charlie Weatherbie was named head coach at Utah State, and Weatherbie in turn recruited Wells. Wells quarterbacked 16 games for Utah State in 1994 and 1995, then moved to safety. By then, Weatherbie had moved on to Navy and in 1997 brought along the 23-year-old Wells to his staff. Wells coached five years at both Navy and Tulsa, then made stops at New Mexico and Louisville before landing back in Logan. Now, Luke Wells is Utah State’s co-offensive coordinator, having left the Iowa State staff to join his big brother. “I talk to him weekly,” Virgil Terry said. “He’s just a really sharp guy and got a really sharp brother working for him. “I remember him being extremely savvy and very knowledgeable. Matt always was a great student, but he carried that over onto the football field, too. He’s constantly learning. A great kid. The kind of kid you’d want your daughter to date. As a matter of fact, my daughter was his girlfriend for awhile. And that was fine with me. Please mention the fact that I’m extremely happy with my present son-in-law.” And Utah State is extremely happy with its football coach.

High school football: Football official Chris Cervantes upset about bad call in Douglass-Locust Grove gameDec 1, 2014
It’s affecting his mood. It’s affecting every-day functions. It’s even affecting his personal relationships.
High school football: Football official Chris Cervantes upset about bad call in Douglass-Locust Grove game
By Jacob Unruh | Dec 1, 2014There hasn’t been a good night of sleep for Chris Cervantes in days. Cervantes is the high school football official who dropped the flag that changed it all for Douglass and Locust Grove in last week’s Class 3A quarterfinal football matchup. The five-member officiating crew that he’s part of incorrectly enforced a penalty on Douglass’ sideline and took back a go-ahead touchdown with 1:04 remaining that resulted in Locust Grove winning, Douglass protesting and the 3A bracket now being in limbo. It’s affecting his mood. It’s affecting every-day functions. It’s even affecting his personal relationships. “I’m ready to hang up my freakin’ shoes because of this and throw years of officiating away,” Cervantes said. “It wasn’t because of the call. I will admit the problem of misinterpreting the penalty assessment. I will admit that as a person and a human being and there’s nothing I can do about that, and that’s what kills me the most.” Douglass lost the game 20-19, and Oklahoma City Public Schools is now asking to replay the game from the touchdown. A special Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors meeting to hear the appeal has been granted for 4 p.m. Wednesday. Cervantes, though, told The Oklahoman there’s more to this situation, saying he came in contact with a Douglass assistant coach during the play, an official on the crew was punched by a Douglass fan following the game and that Douglass coach Willis Alexander was threatening the officials outside their locker room. “Coach Alexander came all the way from his dressing room and he wants (us) to come outside,” Cervantes said. “He’s out there hollering my full name so everybody around there knows, calling me out and telling me I better have security escort me out for my safety.” Alexander denied that following Monday’s news conference. “I was with my team after the game and then doing an interview with (The Oklahoman's) Scott (Wright),” Alexander said. "That wasn't part of it. My part was to get my team together and console my kids." THE CREW Chris Cervantes, 44, has been an official since 1994 at the high school and Division II level. He started calling various sports while serving in Guam as a construction mechanic in the Navy before officiating games in California and Florida. In 2004, he returned to Oklahoma where he graduated in the late 1980s from Tulsa Rogers. Since then, he’s served on two crews. He began on longtime official Major Williams’ crew before leaving briefly to help form another crew. He returned to Williams’ crew a few years ago and has since called multiple playoff games. The crew has officiated three games this posteason. It opened with Oologah at Sallisaw and then followed with Kiefer at Rejoice Christian. From 2010-2013, the crew officiated just one playoff game each season. Cervantes was only on the crew in 2013. In 2008, Cervantes was on a different crew officiating two playoff games, including the Class 5A semifinal between Carl Albert and Lawton MacArthur. “They’ve called more than a few games, even when I was coaching at Westmoore,” OSSAA director of officiating Mike Whaley said. “Highly respected crew; very experienced crew.” Williams has been officiating for more than 30 years and is one of four armed forces veterans on the crew. The other member of the crew is a pastor, Cervantes said. THE RULE Even with all of the experience among the officiating crew, it was a relatively new rule that proved troublesome. Rule 9-8-3 in the NFHS rulebook states, “A non-player shall not be outside the team box unless it’s to become (an active) player or return as a replaced player. A maximum of three coaches may be in the restricted area. No player, non-player or coach shall be in the restricted area when the ball is live.” The rule was implemented a few years ago by the NFHS following a 2004 court case in which a Brackenridge (Texas) assistant coach filed a lawsuit against five officials and the Texas Association of Sports Officials, alleging their negligence led to a brain injury that ended his career. The Brackenridge assistant, Terry English, was in the restricted area when an official collided with him. Douglass received a warning in the first quarter for this violation Friday, but then Cervantes said an assistant coach bumped him on the field during the go-ahead touchdown. Video does not show conclusive proof he was touched, but does prove an assistant coach broke the rule that results in a 5-yard penalty. The crew enforced it from the original line of scrimmage, instead of on the ensuing extra-point attempt or kickoff like the rule states. Willis Alexander then said he argued the enforcement, though Cervantes and his crewmate Chad Moyer both said that argument was never made. “Not one of the Douglass coaches or the Douglass head coach argued or complained about the enforcement of the penalty,” Cervantes said. “They didn’t know how the penalty should have been enforced; they were all arguing the penalty itself. If they would have argued the enforcement, we as officials would have got back together to discuss it and probably came out with the right penalty assessment.” THE AFTERMATH Following the game, multiple reports said punches were thrown by fans. Chad Moyer, who is a Tulsa police officer, told 1430-AM in Tulsa Monday that he was punched by a fan. OKCPS district athletic director Keith Sinor said the district would address that situation at a later date. “We’re going to deal with one issue at a time,” he said. “First and more pressing issue that we’re going to deal with is the situation that directly affects our student-athletes. The matter that you’re referring to is an adult issue and we will refer to that whenever that time comes.” Meanwhile, Cervantes will continue to lose sleep. Though he’s retired from the Navy, he can’t let go of his mistake, so much so that it’s possible he’ll never officiate again. “This whole thing really has me more tore up as a person and individual,” he said. “I didn’t go out there any way in trying to take something away from anyone. This is something I have to live with and this is something I’m living with every day.”

High school notebook: Durant coach parodies 'Shake It Off' after firing
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh | Nov 17, 2014Two days after being fired from his alma mater, former Durant football coach Byron Cordell had a response to his ousting — and it was especially entertaining. Cordell and his family recorded a parody to Taylor Swift’s Billboard Top 100 song “Shake It Off” as a comeback and posted it on YouTube over the weekend. You can watch the video at NewsOK.com/Varsity. Cordell’s two daughters, son and wife all sing along to the song with him while they pack up his belongings. But they also dance and have a little fun in the school’s facilities during the process. The school informed Cordell he would not return for his 10th season Thursday, just days after Durant ended its season 1-9 following a 2-8 campaign last season. “We just weren’t successful enough in the last few years,” Cordell told the Durant Democrat. “We didn’t win enough games. It’s part of the profession. I’m disappointed, but I understand. “I had a great time in my nine years here in Durant. It was an honor and privilege to coach in my home town. I would like to thank everyone for the support, not just me, but the kids in the program. I had a lot of good times.” Cordell told the paper he has not decided what he’ll do next. The video suggests he’ll bounce back just fine. NEWCASTLE DEFENSE WILL BE KEY VS. FORT GIBSON Newcastle’s defense has been one of the best in Class 4A this season, allowing 14.5 points per game, with only No. 1 Anadarko managing to score more than 21 points on the Racers. But second-ranked Fort Gibson offers a challenge to the third-ranked Racers defense in this week’s playoff game. Fort Gibson is averaging 40.9 points per game and has been held below 35 only once all season, a 28-14 win over Sallisaw. Fort Gibson sophomore Chris Walker has been one of the top running backs in the state, rushing for 2,121 yards and 34 touchdowns, averaging 8.0 yards per carry. SPENCE GETS TOP COAC VOLLEYBALL HONOR Edmond Santa Fe’s Jordan Spence was named the Central Oklahoma Athletic Conference volleyball Player of the Year on a list of honorees dominated by the Wolves. Santa Fe’s Kaitlin Dillion and Sam Ethridge were co-Defensive Players of the Year, while Edmond North’s Hannah Rose Frohling was named the conference’s top offensive player. Spence and Frohling were joined on the All-Conference First team by Audrey Alford of Norman North, Livi Schiffner and Alli Evans of Edmond Memorial, Taylor Horton of Edmond Santa Fe and Morgan Turner of Deer Creek. CASADY’S FREEMAN SIGNS WITH OC GOLF Elizabeth Freeman has helped the Casady girls golf team to a pair of Southwest Preparatory Conference championships, and her play has earned Freeman the opportunity to continue golfing at the next level. Freeman signed a letter of intent with the Oklahoma Christian women’s golf team last week. WINTER MEDIA DAY WEDNESDAY The Oklahoman’s annual Winter Sports Media Day has been set for Wednesday at McGuinness High School. The event begins at 3:30 p.m. and ends at 7:30. The school is located at 801 NW 50 Street in Oklahoma City. Each Oklahoma City-area high school participating in basketball, wrestling and swimming is encouraged to bring athletes to meet The Oklahoman’s high school coverage team for interviews, videos and photos that will be used throughout the upcoming season.
District champion Oologah was forced for forfeit three games just two days before opening the playoffs due to playing an ineligible player, the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association has confirmed to The Oklahoman. As a result, Oologah is no longer the District 4A-3 champion. Wagoner now takes the title and will host Sallisaw. Oologah drops to second and will host last year’s state...
High school football: Ineligible player forces changes to Class 4A playoff bracket
BY JACOB UNRUH, Staff Writer, firstname.lastname@example.org | Nov 12, 2014District champion Oologah was forced for forfeit three games just two days before opening the playoffs due to playing an ineligible player, the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association told The Oklahoman. The result of the forfeiture has thrown District 4A-3 into chaos, stripping the district championship from Oologah and forcing changes in four first-round games this week. “We always hold ourselves and our staff to high standards of integrity and honesty, and we tried to do the right thing here,” Oologah superintendent Max Tanner said. “It’s not an ideal situation, but again we plan on doing the right thing, even at the expense of a district title. It’s not a good situation, but we want to make sure we play by the rules and that we do the right thing.” Wagoner is now the district champion and will host Sallisaw, while Oologah will host last year’s state runner-up Poteau after maintaining wins over Cascia Hall and Catoosa to win a three-way tie. That tie, though, has forced a change in two more games than originally thought by the OSSAA. Due to Catoosa beating Cascia Hall in overtime earlier this season, Catoosa moves to third in the district and will travel to Metro Christian. Cascia Hall becomes the fourth-place team headed to No. 2 Fort Gibson. All games will remain on schedule Friday despite the OSSA offering to move them to Saturday. “You’ve pretty much by this time have done most of your prep,” OSSAA associate director David Jackson said. “That’s the challenge. We’ve talked to all schools involved and they understand the situation and were very cooperative.” Oologah was 7-0 in district play, but forfeits to Wagoner and Miami drop it to 5-2. A nondistrict forfeit makes the team’s overall record 5-5. Tanner said the discovery of the ineligible student was made internally. //

There will be some highly recruited linemen in the class, from both sides of the ball. But the emphasis is going to be on the playmakers — primarily quarterbacks and running backs.
2016 football recruiting class is beginning to look like the Year of the Playmaker
By Scott Wright | Oct 26, 2014Last week, The Oklahoman high school sports staff brought you the midseason update of our Super 30 list, ranking the recruiting prospects of the 2015 class. Of course, college coaches are already looking hard at the class of 2016, so why don’t we take a peek as well? Each recruiting class seems to take on its own personality. Last year’s class was headed by perhaps the state’s most highly recruited quarterback duo of David Cornwell and Justice Hansen. The current class is all about linemen. The top two spots belong to offensive linemen — Casady’s Josh Wariboko-Alali and Lawton’s Josh Barnett — with Jenks defensive tackle Marquis Overton defensive tackle in the fourth spot. If you include tight ends, 12 of the 30 spots in all belong to offensive or defensive linemen. Right now, the 2016 class is beginning to look like the Year of the Playmaker. Rivals.com lists seven players in the class with scholarship offers so far. The breakdown: Three quarterbacks, two running backs, a receiver and a defensive back. There will be some highly recruited linemen in the class, from both sides of the ball. But the emphasis is going to be on the playmakers — primarily quarterbacks and running backs. The Quarterbacks Edmond Santa Fe’s Keaton Torre is the only player in the class to verbally commit, when he chose Louisville a few weeks ago. Rivals.com lists him as the state’s only four-star recruit in 2016 right now, and there’s an easy case to make for him as the No. 1 prospect in the class. But a lot of players are right on his tail for that recognition. Arkansas State has offered Del City’s Terry Wilson, the most unique prospect in the class because of his combination of size, speed, throwing ability and elusiveness on the run. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound junior has had a rough season, moreso because the team hasn’t held up to preseason expectations than his own lack of success. Scott Gilkey at Broken Arrow has offers from Louisiana-Monroe and Louisville, though it’s unclear how Torre’s commitment impacts Louisville’s pursuit of Gilkey. The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder has the frame and the arm to wow a coach, but he hasn’t been starting for Broken Arrow lately. Mustang’s Chandler Garrett hasn’t received an offer yet, but they’re coming. He’s right there with the first three players mentioned in terms of talent, and he’s having a more productive season than any of them. Beyond that, there are still several quarterbacks who could garner significant college attention, like Keats Calhoon at Victory Christian, Patrick McKaufman at Douglass, Micah Wilson at Lincoln Christian and Quint Scoufos at Sallisaw, as well as a few others. The running backs A popular discussion this season has been about the running backs in the junior class, and the topic of which one will ultimately be the best. Right now, Norman North’s Quan Hogan and Lone Grove’s Jeremy Lewis have offers from Tulsa. Edmond Santa Fe’s Darran Williams has been a workhorse, and has shown incredible strength, despite his 5-foot-10, 165-pound frame. And like the quarterback conversation, this list keeps going. Justice Hill at Tulsa Washington, Tyler Adkins at Tulsa Union and Jamall Shaw at Broken Arrow are already on the radar There are some who might still be hidden gems on the recruiting scene. Nick Smith at Kingfisher, Maurice Wright at Luther and Grant Martin at Harrah certainly make that list. Plenty of players at other positions will deserve notice as the recruiting process heats up for 2016. Casady defensive back Max Wariboko-Alali already has offers from UCLA, Louisville and Tulsa, while Westmoore receiver DeShawn Lookout has an Arkansas State offer. All the names mentioned to this point only scratch the surface of what stands to be an outstanding group of recruits. Our first official Super 30 for the 2016 recruiting class won’t debut until February, and narrowing it to 30 is going to be a challenge.

Class 6A-II No. 1 Tulsa Washington fell to No. 4 Bixby, 27-10, and Class 5A’s top-ranked Ardmore fell to unranked Altus in overtime 21-14. In Class A, No. 1 Hollis fell to sixth-ranked Apache 22-19 as well, meaning the top of that poll is in for some major shuffling.
High school notebook: Three No. 1s fall in week of upsets
BY SCOTT WRIGHT AND JACOB UNRUH | Oct 25, 2014Week 8 of the high school football season only jumbled up the postseason outlook even more than it already was. Three top-ranked teams were defeated, among several other upsets on Friday night. Class 6A-II No. 1 Tulsa Washington fell to No. 4 Bixby, 27-10, and Class 5A’s top-ranked Ardmore fell to unranked Altus in overtime 21-14. Ardmore’s defeat leaves defending 5A champion Guthrie as the only undefeated team above Class 4A. In Class A, No. 1 Hollis fell to sixth-ranked Apache 22-19 as well, meaning the top of that poll is in for some major shuffling. Class 6A-I nearly saw a big upset until No. 2 Owasso erased a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to defeat No. 5 Mustang 28-24. Edmond Memorial jumped back into playoff contention with an upset of No. 6 Westmoore. In 5A, Deer Creek knocked off Carl Albert in a game that will have major playoff implications in District 5A-2. The Oklahoman’s class-by-class rankings will see some major changes heading into Week 9. The rankings will be released online hourly throughout the day Monday, starting with Class 6A-I at 9 a.m. at NewsOK.com/Varsity. WASHINGTON GETS BIGGEST WIN IN SIX YEARS Washington coach Brad Beller called the Warriors’ 41-12 win over Lindsay the biggest for the program since it moved to Class 2A in 2008. That came courtesy of an all-around team effort that saw Luke Ladlee shine on offense and a stout defense step up to slow down previously unbeaten Lindsay’s potent offense. “I think the biggest deal was us defensively we didn’t give up the big plays,” Beller said. “Lindsay is so explosive offensively and we held them to 207 yards. I know in some era that’s not very good, but against that team I thought it was a very good defensive effort.” Ladlee rushed for 164 yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries. Beller also said defensive ends R.J. Vaughn and Gage Mainus played well up front, as well as defensive backs Brandon Frizell and Collin Andrews, who recently tied a national record by returning three fumbles for touchdowns against Frederick. “It was such a team effort,” Beller said. “We didn’t really have that one guy who took the game over.” Washington travels to Walters this week, and a win gives the Warriors the District 2A-3 title. FREEMAN RALLIES NEWCASTLE PAST WEATHERFORD An early 14-point deficit to Weatherford didn’t bother Newcastle. In fact, it woke the Racers up. Newcastle rallied for a 42-21 win to remain undefeated this season and set up a huge district showdown with No. 1 Anadarko next week that’s likely to decide the district championship. “I never saw any fear or hesitation or anything else,” Newcastle coach Keith Bolles said. “They stayed focused, they stuck to the game plan and we just executed.” Quarterback Casey Freeman was again solid, throwing for around 320 yards and four touchdowns. He’ll need to be that impressive against the Warriors, who have allowed just 12 points all season. “There’s multiple challenges we face this week and we’re excited about it,” Bolles said. “This has a chance to be for the district championship and two home games in the playoffs. “Win or lose, we’ll tell our kids we’re going to get better each game and if we can get better that’s all we can ask.” APACHE’S DOMEBO HAS BIG NIGHT, AVOIDS SCARE Apache senior Jalen Domebo had another big night for the Warriors, scoring three touchdowns and kicking a field goal in a 22-19 upset of top-ranked Hollis. But he also had a bit of a scare late in the game when he suffered a lower leg injury on the next-to-last play. X-rays were negative, and Apache coach Larry McDaniel hopes it’s just a bruise. “Below his knee had a big knot on it,” McDaniel said. “Went to emergency room, but everything came out good. That was a big blessing for us right there.” Domebo may get some time to rest. Apache (7-0) just needs to beat Hinton or Carnegie to win the district outright. But he likely won’t want to rest since he plays all over the field. To go along with his scoring output, he totaled 12 tackles at free safety while limiting Hollis’ ground attack. “After watching the film last night after we got home, what he did from the free safety position was amazing,” McDaniel said. “We were forcing Hollis to pitch the ball, which they hadn’t had to do any this year, and he was able to come off from the free safety position and tackle the pitch players on the corners.” BARCHEERS PASSES 4,000 CAREER YARDS Poteau running back Roger Barcheers is now a member of the 4,000-yard club. He rushed for 128 yards and one touchdown in Poteau’s 48-14 win over Sallisaw, giving him 4,113 yards for his career. Poteau quarterback Ben Klutts also had a ncie game, completing 16 of 25 passes for 198 yards and two touchdowns.

Collected Wisdom: Joey Witcher, Bristow High School athletic director, former OSU and Midwest City football player
By Kyle Fredrickson, Staff Writer | Sep 27, 2014Joey Witcher played alongside Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy at Midwest City, and the two were roommates and teammates at OSU. As a Cowboy, Witcher played on special teams and in a reserve role at wide receiver. Upon graduation, Gundy went on to pursue a college football coaching career and Witcher did the same at the high school level. Over the course of about 20 years, Witcher made coaching stops at Holdenville, Midwest City, Sallisaw, Cushing, Union and Broken Arrow. Last month, the Witcher family was devastated when Joey’s daughter — Taylor Witcher, 20, an OU student — died in a car accident. Gundy missed one of the Cowboys’ first fall camp practices to attend her funral. Witcher, 46, is now the athletic director at Bristow High School. I started playing sports as a 5-year-old with my two older brothers. Just playing in the backyard or in the neighborhood. We lived in a cul-de-sac and you played with all the neighborhood kids … We’re too old (to play now). Our eligibility has been up for a long time. Midwest City was like Jenks back then, as far as athletics. Back then, ninth graders were at the junior high, we weren’t even part of the high school … My sophomore year, the very first game of the year, I got to suit up, and that was huge, that was a big deal. Then toward the end of my sophomore year, I got to play, I got put on special teams and got to play some receiver. The state championship in ’85 — Midwest City hadn’t won a state championship since 1960, so that was huge. Because we broke the 25-year curse and all that. It was a big deal … Right at the end, Mike (Gundy) throws an interception and they run it for a touchdown. And all of a sudden, we’re down with two minutes left. Midwest City had been notoriously famous for choking in the state finals, I guess for a lack of a better word, and I’m sure the thought in the stands was, ‘Oh boy, here we go again.’ But the thing about it, we never thought that way. Mike got in the huddle and said, ‘OK, let’s go win this thing.’ And we did. Basically, I was either going to go to OSU or OU, depending on where Mike went because we were going to room together. Because I didn’t have a scholarship, I had to walk on. He chose OSU, that’s where I decided to go … Financially, I had enough money to go there basically a year. I was already looking at the possibility of transferring to UCO, because it was closer to home. Then Coach (Pat) Jones called me in the summer and said, ‘We’re going to put you on scholarship.’ It was huge for me and my mom. Probably the best thing I can say about Pat Jones is that he was straight up with you. I appreciated that. He was honest. I was never going to be a great college player. I knew that going into it. The fact that he put me on scholarship my last two years and gave me the opportunity to play special teams and letter was huge for me … The year (Barry) Sanders won the Heisman, I got to play a ton, because the second and third team came in to play a lot. The thing about Barry, he was so genuine. What you see is what he really is. He hated the limelight. He was a team player. He wasn’t about records or about himself. He was one of those humble hall-of-famers … That’s a neat experience I get to tell my kids, that I got to play with Barry Sanders and Thurman Thomas. I knew when I was a junior in high school, that (coaching) is what I wanted to do. (Coaches) were such an influence on my life. I thought it would be fun. I wanted to do what they did … I coached for 20 years and I enjoyed all of them. I really enjoy what I’m doing now. My focus now is more coaching coaches … more so than kids. I like watching baseball. I like playing golf, which is what I’m doing right now, and spending time with my family. I’m a huge Yankees fan. My son and I were watching (Derek Jeter’s final home game) … We were flipping back and forth from the OSU game, he kept going, ‘Dad we’re missing the OSU game.’ And I said, ‘Wade, we have to see Jeter’s last game at Yankee’s stadium.’ … (Jeter) is one of those guys, we always talk about him, to be in New York and do what he does with all the negativity that’s going on in pro sports, to be who he is — is awesome. Even if you’re not a Yankee fan, you’re a Derek Jeter fan. For not having played in five years, I think Daxx Garman is doing a great job. I think Mike has done a great job of building the program to where it is; in the top-25 every year, going to a bowl game every year. When we were roommates in college, he talked about being the coach at OSU at one time and things that he would do if he were ever the coach there. And he’s done them. So that’s kind of neat to see all that come to fruition. They’re young, but I think Glenn Spencer is doing a great job with the defense. They’re fun to watch. There’s a couple kids there from Broken Arrow that I coached that are playing, so it’s fun to watch them. Zac Veatch is starting at right guard and I coached him … That’s kind of cool. We text, but (Gundy) is so busy. I went up there in the preseason to watch practice and to see him, spend some time with him … Our schedules don’t allow us to spend a whole lot of time together. (On Gundy skipping practice to attend his daughter’s funeral.) I think that in itself says a lot about who he is and our friendship. That wraps it up in a nutshell. He’s got his priorities in the right spot.

High school football: Staff picks for the top 10 games of Week 4
Trent Shadid | Sep 25, 2014Here's how The Oklahoman's high school sports staff picked the top 10 football games in Week 4: Scott Wright Owasso 24, Norman North 22 OCS 21, Millwood 20 Edmond Santa Fe 28, Edmond Memorial 27 Fort Gibson 28, Sallisaw 21 Choctaw 35, Enid 28 Guthrie 28, McGuinness 20 Tipton 56, Grandfield 16 Roland 35, Spiro 28 Del City 34, Ardmore 31 Tulsa Kelley 31, Tulsa Memorial 28 Lock of the week: Choctaw over Enid. Coming off its first loss of the season, Choctaw will bounce back strong. And with the Yellowjackets’ motivation to get to the playoffs for the first time in 30 years, the district opener is a big motivator for them. Enid is a solid team, but Bartlesville showed last week that you can score on that stout defense, which hadn’t allowed more than 16 points in a game the first two weeks. Jacob Unruh Owasso 21, Norman North 17 OCS 28, Millwood 20 Edmond Memorial 24, Edmond Santa Fe 21 Fort Gibson 28, Sallisaw 21 Choctaw 30, Enid 21 Guthrie 21, McGuinness 15 Tipton 40, Grandfield 32 Roland 34, Spiro 29 Del City 35, Ardmore 28 Tulsa Kelley 30, Tulsa Memorial 27 Lock of the week: Del City over Ardmore. The Eagles had a tough time the past two weeks, falling to Class 6A foes. But they'll rebound this week behind Terry Wilson, who looked very impressive in last week's loss to rival Midwest City. Trent Shadid Norman North 28, Owasso 27 OCS 17, Millwood 13 Edmond Memorial 31, Edmond Santa Fe 28 Fort Gibson 23, Sallisaw 20 Choctaw 35, Enid 30 Guthrie 24, McGuinness 21 Tipton 50, Grandfield 36 Roland 42, Spiro 35 Del City 27, Ardmore 21 Tulsa Kelley 24, Tulsa Memorial 20 Lock of the week: OCS over Millwood. Both teams showed the ability to be serious contenders once again in Class 2A while going 3-0 against tough non-district opponents, so expect this game to go a long ways towards deciding District 2A-2 champion. The Saints get my pick behind an offense averaging better than 36 points per game. Here are the standings after Week 2: Jacob (15-15, 3-0) Scott (15-15, 1-2) Trent (15-15, 1-2)

Talihina Golden Tigers have sights on gold ball. That’s what happens when a team returns eight starters on offense and nine on defense from a team that finished 13-1 last season and reached the state semifinals.
High school football: District A-8 preview
By Ed Godfrey | Aug 27, 2014Talihina has fielded good football teams in recent years. The Golden Tigers have won at least 11 games five of the past six seasons. Kelly Gravitt is entering his ninth season as head coach and thinks the 2014 Golden Tigers could be the best yet. That’s what happens when a team returns eight starters on offense and nine on defense from a team that finished 13-1 last season and reached the state semifinals. There are seven senior starters on both sides of the ball, led by Alan Lockhart, a four-year starter at free safety and a two-year starter at quarterback. Running back Bryar Humphreys and cousins Ty (wide receiver/linebacker) and Tucker Trowbridge (center/defensive end) are also four-year starters. Talihina’s two biggest question marks coming into the season were replacing All-State guard Jordan Blue in the offensive line and all-star Preston Derby at strong safety. Gravitt’s worries about replacing those players have been erased by the development of guard Dominck Shedd and safety Keaton Jackson. The Golden Tigers were ousted from the playoffs by Ringling, 26-18, last year and the club still feels the sting of that loss, Gravitt said. “They’re hungry,” Gravitt said. “These guys have had their eyes on the prize for a long time.” Gravitt has never been more confident entering a season. “If we stay healthy, I look to make a strong run,” he said. INJURIES ALREADY PILING UP FOR SAVANNA Staying healthy hasn’t happened in Savanna. The season hasn’t even started and the Bulldogs already have lost three returning starters and two other players for the season due to injuries and illness. Savanna coach James Bond said the lofty expectations for a Bulldog team that went 9-3 last season and was returning seven offensive starters and six defensive starters will now be difficult to reach. “That’s life,” Bond said. “You play with what’s dealt you and go on. You don’t necessarily like the hand you are dealt but you go play it.” Savanna has been buoyed by two move-ins from McAlester in freshman Richie Williams and sophomore Jonathan Impson, but the loss of five key players has forced some lineup shuffling. For example, wide receiver Josh Holloway (5-foot-9, 185 pounds) is now the new starting right tackle. “He is one of my tougher kids,” Bond said. Bond said Savanna has been fortunate to be injury-free in recent years. “It hadn’t happened to us in a while. I guess it was just due,” he said. “We are just going to try and get tougher and figure out what we can do.” GORE LOOKS TO GET BACK IN PLAYOFF PICTURE New Gore coach Jimmy Whitlock is used to winning. He was a guard on Seminole’s 1996 state championship team. For the past 10 years, he was on the Chieftains coaching staff and Seminole was 38-3 over his last three seasons there. He plans to bring the Chieftains’ work ethic to Gore football. “That was our deal in Seminole,” said Whitlock, who is a head coach for the first time. “We were going to outwork whoever we were playing that week.” Whitlock said his current group of Pirates have been working hard in the pre-season. “I am pretty sure it is quite a bit more than they are used to,” he said. “But the kids have really bought into everything. They are really pushing themselves. They want to be successful.” Gore finished just 2-8 last season and missed the playoffs for the first time in seven years. The Pirates return eight starters on both sides of the ball, led by quarterback Wade Shanks, who also is a four-year starter in the secondary. “He is a very smart player,” Whitlock said. “He’s one of those kids who is like having another coach on the field.” Senior linebacker Noah Batesole is another four year starter who leads a strong linebacking corps that includes seniors C.J. Lehnick and Tanner Clay plus sophomore Lane McDaniel. EXTRA POINTS Gore has 27 players on its roster and only eight are upperclassmen... Talihina’s Tucker Trowbridge was a running back last season but is moving to center because of the number of concussions he’s had, Gravitt said... Savanna quarterback/linebacker Seth Burke has been a four-year starter for the Bulldogs. DISTRICT 2A-8 COACHES’ POLL 1. Talihina (13-1) 2. Central Sallisaw (5-6) 3. Savanna (9-3) 4. Warner (6-5) 5. Quinton (5-5) 6. Gore (2-8) 7. Porter (3-7) (Last season’s records in parentheses)

District favorite Poteau has hole to fill at QB. Metro Christian bringing offensive firepower to 4A.
High school football: District 4A-4 preview
By Trent Shadid, Staff Writer | Aug 6, 2014Poteau’s run to the Class 4A state championship football game last season was led by quarterback Jace Pitchford. He accounted for nearly 2,700 yards of offense and 35 touchdowns while guiding the Pirates to a runner-up finish as a senior. This year, the Pirates will use a combined effort to fill his void as the District 4A-4 favorites aim to make another championship run. “We’re not necessarily going to have what you would call a true two-QB system, but we’ll do a couple different things there,” said Poteau coach Greg Werner. “Ben Klutts is going to start for us. He’s not quite the runner we had in Jace last year, but he’s a heck of a passer. We’ll also have Austin Archey running some wildcat for us.” The Pirates will likely lean on returning back Roger Barcheers to ease into their passing game this season. The junior is approaching 3,000 yards for his career after rushing for 1,497 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. Poteau also returns a strong defense led by Archey at linebacker. He led the team with 143 tackles a year ago. “After last year, our kids expect to do well,” Werner said. “We may have snuck up on some people then, but we’ve got the target on us now and that’s a good thing.” METRO CHRISTIAN BRINGING OFFENSIVE FIREPOWER TO 4A Metro Christian is moving into Class 4A after having won five straight district titles in 3A. If the Patriots are going to make it six consecutive titles, they’ll need continued production from their talented passing attack. A strong season is expected from junior quarterback Abe Anderson (6-foot-3, 215 pounds), who passed for 1,436 yards and 23 touchdowns to just three interceptions last season. The Patriots also return top receiver Jake Koenig. The junior scored 10 touchdowns while setting team highs with 48 receptions for 975 yards a year ago. COBBLE BEGINS NEW ERA AT STILWELL J.T. Cobble enters his first season at Stilwell with a team picked seventh in the coaches’ preseason poll. However, Cobble’s team could be a sleeper in a deep district. The Indians have nine returning starters on offense including junior QB Jaron Vaughn, who is primed for a breakout season. J.T. is the son of longtime Oklahoma high school coach Tom Cobble, who is in the OCA Hall of Fame and recently retired after 40 years as a head coach at six different schools. J.T. played under his father at Weatherford, winning a state title together in 1999. Sallisaw will also have a new coach this season with Scott Bethel taking over the program. Bethel inherits a squad with strong offensive and defensive lines, and highly regarded quarterback Quint Scoufos. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound junior passed for 1,165 yards and 11 touchdowns with two interceptions last season. FORT GIBSON TO RELY ON EXPERIENCE Fort Gibson coach James Singleton is in his fourth season leading the Tigers. The same goes for a talented group of seniors, led by JR Singleton (QB/S) and Tristan Johnson (LB/RB). The pair is two of eight starters returning on offense and seven on defense. The continuity and experience is something James Singleton hopes will help thrust the Tigers into state championship contention. EXTRA POINTS Broken Bow had its string of seven consecutive playoff appearances snapped after going 1-9 in 2013. The Savages’ running game, led by four returning offensive linemen and senior RB Jaylon Watson, will be the key to a postseason return. ...Tulsa Central has a major hole to fill with the graduation of QB D’Angelo Brewer, who is now a running back at Tulsa. Brewer accounted for most of the Braves’ offense last season with 1,925 all-purpose yards. District 4A-4 coaches’ poll 1. Poteau (12-2) 2. Fort Gibson (6-5) 3. Metro Christian (11-1) 4. Sallisaw (8-3) 5. Broken Bow (1-9) 6. Tulsa Central (3-7) 7. Stilwell (4-6) 8. Muldrow (2-8) *Last year’s record is in parenthesis
Jul 31, 2014
Last season, Del City quarterback Terry Wilson won a three-way battle for the starting job as only a 15-year-old sophomore. At 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, his size, arm strength, and running ability made him one of the most talented young players in the state. After accounting for seven touchdowns over four games, Wilson’s season ended with a broken collarbone in Week 5. Since then, he’s continued to...
High school football: District 5A-1 preview
By Trent Shadid, Staff Writer | Jul 31, 2014Del City quarterback Terry Wilson showing progress Last season, Del City quarterback Terry Wilson won a three-way battle for the starting job as only a 15-year-old sophomore. At 6-foot-2, 180 pounds, his size, arm strength, and running ability made him one of the most talented young players in the state. After accounting for seven touchdowns over four games, Wilson’s season ended with a broken collarbone in Week 5. Since then, he’s continued to develop the mental side of his game to go along with his natural abilities. “Terry understands more about what we’re doing offensively heading into this year,” said Del City coach Nick Warehime. “He was only able to play four games last year, and he was 15-years-old. Now that he’s had the opportunity to be with us for two years and prepare over the spring and summer, he’s progressively gotten better with reading the defense and things like that.” The Eagles expect to run much of the same offense from a year ago, which will allow Wilson to use his running ability in the option-read game. Along with Wilson, Del City returns big-play threat Davion Freeman. After primarily playing cornerback and on special teams as a junior, Freeman is expected to also play receiver and in the backfield this season. BROWER TAKING OVER AT EL RENO As Wes Brower takes over as the new head coach at El Reno, he hopes to help return the once strong program to success. Since going 12-1 in 2009, El Reno has had four consecutive losing seasons. Although the program doesn’t have a state title, the Indians have finished runner-up five times and were a regular championship contender in the 1990s and 2000s. “We’re going to try to build championship football again here at El Reno,” said Brower, who was an assistant on the 1999 runner-up team at El Reno. “We we’re playing some pretty good football back then and I understand what that’s about. I feel like El Reno can produce those teams again. We’ve got some work to do, but that’s what we’re heading for.” Brower spent 13 years as the coach at Sayre before returning to El Reno as an assistant last season. CHICKASHA, DUNCAN REPLACING HALL OF FAME COACHES El Reno isn’t the only 5A-1 school with some tradition breaking in a new head coach this season. Chickasha and Duncan will also have a new face directing its program, and both are replacing Hall of Fame coaches. Chickasha has replaced Oklahoma Coaches Association Hall of Famer Tom Cobble with alum Jerry Don Bray, who has spent the past eight seasons as an assistant at the school. Bray graduated from Chickasha in 2001, and was a three-year letterman as a defensive end at Oklahoma State. Former Sallisaw coach Craig Benson is replacing Jim Holloway at Duncan. Holloway was inducted into the National High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame in 2012. THE BIG THREE In 2013, Lawton MacArthur, Del City, and Ardmore separated themselves from the rest of the district. All three went 6-1 in district games with Lawton Mac finishing six tie-breaker points ahead of Ardmore and eight ahead of Del City. While the district isn’t entirely the same, Northwest Classen and El Reno have replaced Southeast and Capitol Hill, the coaches’ preseason poll has favored the top three to remain the same. Lawton Mac was the overwhelming favorite in the poll with Ardmore second and Del City third. ALTUS RECEIVES HIGH PRAISE Despite coming off a 3-7 season Altus was selected by the coaches to earn a playoff spot as the No. 4 team in the preseason poll. “I think Altus has a chance to be really good,” said Del City coach Nick Warehime. “They had a great underclass group last season. That’s a team to watch for.” The Bulldogs do have one major hole to fill as they must replace the production of running back Taven Birdow. As a sophomore last season, Birdow rushed for 1,796 yards and 16 touchdowns. He has since moved to Florida. Extra Points Lawton MacArthur senior Will Collins, who recently received an offer from Louisiana-Monroe, is back as one of the top quarterbacks in the state after throwing for more than 2,700 yards and 29 touchdowns last season. ...Ardmore is returning just four starters on defense, but it is still expected to contend for the district title behind a strong senior class that includes CB Kevion McGee and LB Jarred Hall.... Northwest Classen will begin a new era under coach Bruce Madden as the Knights aim to finish .500 or better for the first time since 1973. District 5A-1 coaches’ poll 1. Lawton MacArthur (10-3) 2. Ardmore (8-3) 3. Del City (7-4) 4. Altus (3-7) 5. Duncan (3-6) 6. Chickasha (5-6) 7. El Reno (4-6) 8. Northwest Classen (3-7) *Last year’s record in parenthesis
