High school football: Noble QB Baehler Buol has Bears thinking postseason
BY JACOB UNRUH | Sep 22, 2015NOBLE — Noble quarterback Baehler Buol can recite the date for the first playoff week this season without hesitation. A date that falls in Week 11 — Nov. 13, 2015 — the Bears have not participated in since 2007, but with Buol off to a red-hot start the program and community are buzzing with the possibility of playing that day. “I'd like to get 4-0 and keep going and going and going until we get to 11-13-15, the first playoff game,” Buol said. “That's our goal.” Noble is 3-0 entering Friday's district opener with Shawnee. It's the team's first 3-0 start since 2003. Buol has already completed 57 percent of his passes for 994 yards and 14 touchdowns. It's a better pace than last season when he completed just 48 percent for 2,230 yards and 27 touchdowns the entire season. “We've seen him get better and stronger since last year,” Noble coach Greg George said. “He's made that natural progression. Some of it's what people give you, but he throws the ball well. He's gotten better from last year and hopefully he gets better week-to-week.” Behind his hot start, Buol has become a weekly highlight reel, especially in the season opener when he threw seven touchdowns against Tecumseh and won The Oklahoman's Fans' Choice Player of the Week poll. “I love it when we throw touchdown scores from Baehler to whoever else is out there,” senior lineman Twain Savaugeau said. “He's going to land the pass almost every time.” George said he's been impressed with Buol, who has developed into a team leader as a junior. But George also said he's been impressed with the offense as a whole. “I think everybody is just excited about Noble,” he said. “Yeah, he's had a good three games but really you can say the whole offense. We're blessed to be 3-0 because it's never easy to get a ‘W.' We know district play is going to crank it up.” Noble's first three opponents — Tecumseh, Chickasha and Piedmont — have a combined record of 1-9. The Bears' district schedule includes No. 3 McAlester, No. 6 Skiatook, No. 9 Tulsa Kelley, No. 10 Tulsa Memorial and Shawnee. Even that rugged schedule hasn't changed the optimism around Noble program. “We've got our confidence built up so much more than it has in the recent years,” Buol said. “I think we can definitely make some noise if Shawnee comes here and we can beat them.”

High school notebook: Luke Ring leads Duncan to upset win over Guthrie
BY JACOB UNRUH AND SCOTT WRIGHT | Sep 5, 2015Duncan coach Craig Benson got more than he expected this offseason when he hired Glennis Ring as his defensive coordinator. Ring brought along his son Luke, whose big night Friday has already raised expectations for Duncan's season. Ring passed for 186 yards and three touchdowns, including a 29-yard touchdown to Collin Klingensmith with 1:31 left for a 28-27 upset of No. 4 Guthrie. “Both of them equally have brought a lot to the table,” Benson said. “Glennis has added a mindset to not only our defense, but to our weight room. He's very good in both of those areas. That was the attraction to find a defensive coordinator to help build this program. “I hadn't seen his kid play. I'd heard good things about him, but what we found out quickly was how good of a teammate his is and what he understands about football. Not only has his athleticism added an element to us, but his leadership is the thing.” Duncan running back Trenton Bell also rushed for 120 yards on 19 carries. Duncan led 16-0 early before Guthrie stormed back to take the lead behind three straight touchdowns. Duncan responded with two touchdown passes from Ring. BETHEL ENDS 23-GAME SKID Bethel ended a losing streak that dated back to the 2012 season with a 20-13 win over McLoud thanks to some offseason additions. Quarterback Ethan Fry rejoined the team along with kicker Ruth King, and both played a big part Friday night. “Those two came back and then we had a couple of new kids that hadn't played football before that ended up being starters for us,” Bethel coach Jason Madonna said. “It was a huge boost because it gave us depth. They're all older junior or seniors so it gave us a little more maturity” Fry's addition allowed Caleb Smith to move back to running back. Smith, who played quarterback last season, rushed for 210 yards and one touchdown Friday while also passing for 45 yards. On defense, he was equally important with six tackles and a forced fumble. King made two field goals and both extra-point attempts. Her return gives Bethel more confidence once it reaches the red zone. “It's a pretty good feeling knowing that if I get into the red zone there's an expectation that we can get three on the board,” Madonna said. “It's a real relief knowing that I don't have to try to score a touchdown if it doesn't work out that way.” Bethel ‘s last victory came in Week 7 of 2012 against John Marshall. Friday's win also marked the first career victory for Madonna. NOBLE DUO SHINES IN WIN Noble got the season off to a flying start in a 56-28 win over rival Tecumseh Friday night. Quarterback Baehler Buol threw for 438 yards and seven touchdowns in the season-opening victory. He found Christian Robinson eight times for 208 yards and three touchdowns. The Bears have winnable games against Chickasha and Piedmont remaining on the non-district schedule before heading into District 5A-3 competition. SOUTHEAST'S MCDOWELL COMMITS TO SMU Southeast senior point guard Dashawn McDowell says he has found a college home. McDowell verbally committed to SMU, he announced on Twitter Saturday, adding to the list of commitments from the state's deep and talented basketball class of 2016. McDowell, a 6-foot-5 senior point guard, averaged 29 points per game last season, and was a second-team Oklahoman Big All-City selection. SMU coach Larry Brown and his staff have worked hard in recruiting some of Oklahoma's top prospects the last couple of years. SMU signed Owasso star Shake Milton in the 2015 signing class.

Skordle mobile app has Alex origins
Adam Troxtell, Associated Press | Sep 3, 2015On a cool night late in the Alex Longhorns' 2013 undefeated regular season, Korry Rogers and his wife were on their way back to Norman. They had just watched his nephew, running back Kyler Thornburg, and the Longhorns grab yet another win. With playoffs around the corner, he wanted to check on how other teams in Class B had done and see who Alex might meet in the postseason. "I turned on the radio, and realized quickly that they didn't have the scores, either," Rogers said. "They try, but I realized there wasn't a good way to get real time scores." An IT consultant, Rogers had a hard time believing that, with today's technology, there was no efficient way to provide curious prep football fans with up-to-date scores. About a year later, Skordle was born, and the app is now gearing up for its second football season. Relying on parents, educators, students or anyone at the game, the phone app allows users to both post scores and keep up with other games from across the State of Oklahoma. Rogers, who is also the brother in-law of Alex basketball coach Isaac Byrne, said Skordle was originally intended for football, but it branched out into other sports to meet demand. "We definitely had more growth during football than other sports," Rogers said. "The app was built for football and I just added the other sports. So actually, the growth has been a little bit more than I expected." Skordle users log-in via e-mail and set up an account. With a username, they can then update the score every time someone scores a touchdown, scores a run, or makes a basket. The app, which is close to a year old, is now used by about 8,000 people, Rogers said. The overall goal, however, is much bigger. "It isn't huge," he said. "I want every game scored every time. Some of the smaller schools we don't have a lot of penetration in. Class B and Class C schools don't know about us yet." Skordle certainly has the attention of school administrators and faculty, though. Rogers said he has had some Athletic Directors, like Yohance Brown with Chickasha Public Schools, contact him about taking off GPS restrictions so they can update scores from anywhere in the state. So far, the scores have come in steady and accuracy hasn't been a problem. Rogers said the enjoyment someone gets from knowing they have provided information keeps Skordle going strong. "The dynamic of the crowd is interesting to me," Rogers said. "There's something about us that likes seeing our name somewhere like that. It'll keep the users using it." Toward the end of last season as Alex was on its way to the Class B title, Rogers realized his app was successful during a round two playoff game. "They were playing Dewar, and I was sitting pretty close to the top," he said. "I could look down over people's shoulder and see 5 or 6 with Skordle." The app now supports scores for basketball, fast-pitch, baseball in both the fall and spring, and even wrestling. Football remains king, however, and this season will be big for Skordle's future, Rogers said. "I'm so excited for this season," he said. "We've partnered up with Cox High School Hub. They'll be promoting the app, but on the live streams we'll be providing the scores. So on the screen you'll see a ticker of scores provided by Skordle." Skordle is also looking at expanding from the mobile phone screen to the computer screen on school and newspaper websites. "So if you were a school or newspaper, you could generate a score board that you could make in your colors, copy and paste some code and have live scores on your website," Rogers said. "My ultimate goal is to create a scheduling system, but we're a couple of years away from that." Skordle is free to download and use. There was a pro-version of the app that was free of advertisements, but Rogers said managing two different apps became too difficult. Besides, money isn't the big driver of Skordle, he said; information is. "It was more an app that I wanted because I couldn't get the scores for other games and I thought other people would like to get them, too," Rogers said. "If it gets big enough, we'll worry about money later." ——— ©2015 The Express-Star (Chickasha, Okla.)

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

Potter, the father of the Putnam City football dynasty of the 1970s, died Friday night, five weeks and one day shy of his 90th birthday. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at Church of the Servant at 14343 North MacArthur Boulevard in Oklahoma City.
High school coaching legend Jerry Potter dies at 89
BY SCOTT WRIGHT | Jun 20, 2015Dennis Adams doesn’t have any stories to share about Jerry Potter. But he can talk for hours about Coach Potter. “Here I am, 70 years old, and I still call him Coach,” Adams said. “That’s the type of relationship he built with everyone who played for him.” Potter, the father of the Putnam City football dynasty of the 1970s, died Friday night, five weeks and one day shy of his 90th birthday. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at Church of the Servant at 14343 North MacArthur Boulevard in Oklahoma City. “He was such a great role model,” said Adams, who played for Potter at Harding High School prior to the coach’s glory days at Putnam City. “He instilled self-confidence and self-pride in you.” Potter coached a Pro Football Hall of Famer, a guy whose son won the Heisman Trophy, and dozens of men who followed his path into coaching. Yet when they talk about what Potter meant to them, football is only a side note in the story. “He’s a guy who I could truly call a friend,” said Jack Pebworth, who was Potter’s assistant coach at Putnam City for 13 years. “If I had a problem, I could talk to him and he’d always listen. “He was just a good man, and that’s all there was to it.” A hard-nosed coach, Potter earned his players’ respect by treating them consistently with the same intense, passionate attitude. “There were a lot of times while I was in high school that he probably wasn’t my favorite guy,” joked Putnam City grad Kent Bradford, the father of Heisman winner Sam Bradford. “We were a bunch of young guys who thought we knew it all, and he was there to constantly remind us that we truly didn’t know it all. “Practices were not easy. He would holler at you. He made us run and do up-downs and all that stuff. But on Friday nights, you were ready to play. And as you got to know him, you realized what a great guy he was.” For everything he gave to high school football players during his career, the players and the game gave back in excess. "That was the greatest time of my life when I was coaching, seeing kids excel," Potter said in 2004, after being elected to the National High School Hall of Fame. Potter started the football program at Harding in the 1955 season with no juniors or seniors on the team. In 1957, the team played for the Class A state championship, losing to Ada. Harding played for the title again in 1961 and lost to Cushing. A few years later, Potter left Harding, which converted to a junior-high in the mid-1960s. Potter took over at Putnam City for the 1965 football season, eventually winning state championships in 1974-75 and 1977. The 1977 title game between Putnam City and Putnam City West, coached by Mike Little, could be considered one of the greatest games in Oklahoma high school football history. Two legendary coaches, with offenses quarterbacked by the two best players in the state — Kelly Phelps for Putnam City and Scott Tinsley for Putnam City West. It was played before a standing-room-only crowd at Taft Stadium, with fans overflowing onto the racetrack that then circled the football field. Potter’s Pirates won 21-14 in overtime. Potter’s teams had incredible rivalries with Little’s squads from Putnam City West throughout the 1970s, as well as Jim Darnell’s Midwest City teams of that era. Though his tough coaching exterior didn’t always show it, Potter cared deeply for the players he coached. “He was a tough coach. I remember when we started getting water breaks during practice. That was a big deal,” said Phelps, who went on to play quarterback at Oklahoma. “He emphasized discipline. He was a good man, kind-hearted, took care of his players. He’s one of those coaches you didn’t always like, because he was hard on you, but he obviously pushed you to success.” Potter was once asked by a young coach why he never criticized his players’ performance, even when they didn’t meet his expectations. “Well, I put them on the field, didn’t I?” Potter responded. “How can I bad-mouth them when I’m the one who put them out there?” Potter’s passion to make his players into better men went much farther than that. “When I was a sophomore and junior, my mom was working, so Coach Potter would come by every morning and pick me up and take me to school,” said Adams, who went on to a successful high school coaching career around the state. “Now, I didn’t always stay at school, but I think he took me to school to make sure I got there.” Ironically, Potter didn’t complete high school the first time around. He quit Classen High during his junior year of 1943 and joined the Marines. He served as an air gunner during World War II before being discharged in December 1945. He returned to finish high school, then played college football at Cameron University and Oklahoma City University. Potter made coaching stops at Chickasha and Central as an assistant before taking over at Harding and kicking off a 23-year head coaching career that ended with a 171-67-8 record. The height of his coaching career was at Putnam City in the mid-1970s. Pebworth served as Potter’s assistant all 13 seasons with the Pirates, then took over as head coach when Potter retired after the 1977 season. “He was my mentor,” Pebworth said. “He was a down-to-detail coach, focused on the basic things you needed to do. A hard worker and very organized. He taught me how to be a good coach.” Pebworth says one of Potter’s best qualities was identifying talent in his players to get them in the right positions. “One year, I had this offensive tackle that I really thought was good, but we needed a tight end, so Jerry came over and took my tackle and moved him to tight end,” Pebworth said. “I thought, ‘Hey, you’re stealing my players!’ “But Jerry was right. That player was Kent Bradford. He went on to OU and played offensive line, but he made us better as our tight end that year.” That was the 1974 season, when the Pirates won the first of three state championships under Potter. Then there’s the story of a skinny little running back named Steve Largent, whom Potter determined would be better suited as a wide receiver. Twenty years later, Largent was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, at the time holding every major NFL career receiving record. “That move altered the landscape of my life,” Largent once said. Largent, though, credited Potter for something much more significant. Largent essentially grew up without a father, and Potter became the male influence in his life. "I really believe Jerry's accomplishments in the win-loss column pale in comparison to the lives of the young men he shaped and influenced in a positive way," Largent said in 2004, after Potter was elected to the National High School Hall of Fame. It wasn’t only players who were impacted that way by Potter’s guidance. “My first job was as a graduate assistant for him,” said Lloyd Wertman, who recently retired after a successful 40-year coaching career at various stops around Oklahoma. “He gave me a great foundation for what a coach is supposed to be, and the type of work you’re supposed to do. He coached me on how to be a coach. And that’s what’s so unique about Coach Potter. “I can’t tell you how many coaches he’s influenced.” Potter was a coach in its purest sense. He taught his players how to play, his coaches how to coach, and anyone he worked with how to be a better person. “It’s hard to put in words the impact that man had,” Wertman said. “Not just at Putnam City and the places he was at before that, but the impact he had on the kids and on the coaches and on the state of Oklahoma.”

A 1977 University of Oklahoma electrical engineering graduate, David Posey today is leading the reed switch manufacturing company his parents started from their home in Chickasha 47 years ago. Today, HSI Sensing employs 200 and weekly ships 50,000 to 100,000 custom-made parts worldwide.
Switch manufacturer predicts more 'rockin' rocket' products
By Paula Burkes, Business Writer | Feb 14, 2015David Posey, chief executive of HSI Sensing, holds up what looks like a needle encased in glass and explains that this thing — what’s called a reed switch — can convert a mechanical motion to an electronic signal when a magnet nears it. Invented in 1936 to relay telephone calls, reed switches today have endless applications across every industry, Posey said. They’re used for everything from monitoring pacemakers, fluid levels and security systems to tracking firefighters on the job or spacecraft in space. “We conceived something just last week that’s going to be a rockin’ rocket,” Posey said, “and I believe take us from a $15 million company to $50 million in annual revenue.” HSI, which employs 200, already ships 50,000 to 100,000 mostly custom-made, assembly line-ready parts weekly, including exports to Australia, China, Germany and elsewhere. Its biggest distributor is Allied Electronics. From HSI’s 55,000-square-foot plant in Chickasha, Posey, 60, sat down with The Oklahoman, on Monday to talk about his life and career. This is an edited transcript: Q: Your dad, the late William Posey, started your company 47 years ago. How did he get his start? A: An electrical engineering graduate of Texas Tech, he in the ’40s worked at a General Electric plant in rural upstate New York, where he met and married my mother. They moved to Morristown, N.J., when the G.E. manufacturing line sold to a company called Gordos. My father and a retired Bell Labs engineer started the reed switch line there. A native of Duncan, my dad moved the family to Chickasha in 1968, where he and my mother started HSI, formerly Hermetic Switch Inc., in the basement of our home. He opted not to move to Duncan because Duncan had Halliburton. He wanted to be in a rural town, but not far from the Oklahoma City airport. I was almost 14 when we moved to Chickasha. I’m the third of my parents’ four children; three boys and a girl. Q: You lived most of your childhood in New Jersey. What are your memories? A: We lived next door to the Jersey Reservoir, where I liked to fish and, when it froze over, ice skate. Boy Scouts were big back East. My mom was a den mother and we were continually going to rallies and competitions with scouts. I was always messing with something: assembling models or flying gas-powered airplanes. During holidays, we’d visit my mother’s family in upstate New York. Q: How did you meet your wife? A: Charla and I met in Chickasha, in a high school summer drivers’ ed course, and married — almost 40 years ago now — after my sophomore, her freshman, year at the University of Oklahoma. We convinced our parents we could make it work with the money they were giving each of us to go to college and working for our respective family businesses during the summers and on weekends. Her father had shoe stores scattered across the state. I had a great time at OU. My random dorm roommate my sophomore year — Terry Hall, who’s now an attorney in Tulsa — had played defensive end for the Midwest City Bombers and I’d played offensive wingback for the Chickasha Fighting Chicks. Because the Midwest City coach had coached us the year prior, he’d arranged for our two schools to play each other my senior year. Terry got the game tape and we watched where I — at 5-foot-10, 160 pounds — had managed a few times to at least clip him, at 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds. Terry and I had great fun playing intramural football together at OU. During the OU football games, I for two years sat in the card section, where I and 2,000 other kids held up cards to spell out Boomer Sooner or some sort of advertisement. It was a hoot, until some kids started using the cards as Frisbees and ruined it for the rest of us. Q: How has HSI grown over the nearly four decades you’ve been with the company? A: When I graduated OU and started working full time, the company was only nine years old. We had about 50 employees and hadn’t yet hit $1 million in annual sales. My dad, who held lots of patents, was more of an ideas guy. It was my older brother Tom, an OSU mechanical engineering graduate who retired two years ago, and I who worked on making my dad’s ideas work. My brother-in-law, Everett “Bud” Andrus, served 10 years as company president, before retiring in 2002. Then Tom was president for 10 years. I was only president a few years, before my son Ryan — who earned an MBA from Auburn after getting his bachelor’s in chemical engineering at OU — took over. I invited Ryan to challenge everything we did, and boy, he’s lived up to that challenge, motivating us and leading us in huge process improvements. My nephew, Travis Posey, an OSU marketing graduate, works as vice president of strategy. A about five years ago, we became an employee-owned company. The average ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) balance among employees is $65,000. We also offer a 401(k) with a company match. Q: What have been the biggest turning points in your life? A: Four years after we married, Charla and I got whacked. Our firstborn — a girl we named Jennifer — died just 10 days after she was born. It’s still emotional and still a mystery as to why. She was having trouble breathing; we took her to the ER in Chickasha; and she died on the ambulance ride to Children’s Hospital. That first year afterward was awful. We were roaming around, trying to figure out what next. Then some friends invited us back to church, to a Bible study. Nine months after we accepted the invitation, Ryan was born. We’ve been in church ever since. My older sister and younger brother both died prematurely, which were also significant turning points. But even without those life-altering events, I try to stay on course and focused on God and family.

Executive Q&A: Texas native Steve Rasmussen, president chief executive of the FAA Credit Union, was lured here by his wife’s Oklahoma connections. His mother-in-law and her four sisters hail from Chickasha.
Executive Q&A: Oklahoma City credit union chief aspires to legacy of integrity
By Paula Burkes, Business Writer | Feb 1, 2015When he has a plane to catch, Steve Rasmussen, president and chief executive of the FAA Credit Union, arrives way early to airports. And, whether he’s in flight or on the ground, he strives to live so that when his children think of integrity, they think of him. Those aren’t secrets — to his employees anyway. His personal quirk and life motto are included, along with those of his senior managers, in a handbook given to all new hires. “Welcome to the team! You may not know it just yet, but you belong here,” is printed across its cover. Based on their responses to third-party surveyors, the 150 employees who work at the organization’s seven branches across the metro feel like family. The FAA Credit Union ranked No. 7 and No. 12 among midsize companies on The Oklahoman’s respective 2013 and 2014 Top Workplaces lists. “We try to create a fun workplace, with Thunderwear days and opportunities to work together for charities, because we want employees to look forward to coming to work every day,” Rasmussen said. “If they are happy, it is reflected in the service they give to our members. And in this industry, customer service is the only thing that sets us apart,” he said. The 68-year-old, not-for-profit financial cooperative has $550 million in assets and expects to surpass 50,000 members at mid-year, he said. From the 27,000-square-foot corporate headquarters at 10201 S Western, Rasmussen, 62, sat down recently to talk about his life and career. This is an edited transcript: Q: Tell us about your roots. A: I grew up in Texas City, a refinery seaside town of 60,000, across from Galveston Island. My father owned a Ford dealership and later sold cars. My mother was a homemaker. I’m the youngest of their four children. I have a brother and sister, 13 years and 10 years older, and a brother just a year older. All my siblings live in the Houston area and we’ve all remained close. As did most kids who grew up in the ’50s, I played summer baseball. In high school, I played football and baseball, and took up golf. The father of one of my friends on the football team was a golf pro at the country club. In college, I earned a business administration degree, following both my brothers to Sam Houston, which was only two hours away from home in Huntsville. Q: As a native of south Texas, what was the lure of Oklahoma? A: My wife and high school sweetheart, Dianne, had family here. At age 10 or 11, she moved to Texas City from Chickasha, where her mother had been raised with four sisters. Today, Dianne’s mother and brother live in Houston. Both of Dianne’s parents went to OSU, but she chose to attend OU, where she earned a degree in elementary education. Throughout our dating years and early married life, I’d travel to Norman, Chickasha, Tulsa and Bartlesville for her sorority parties at OU, family weddings and reunions. So, I was familiar with Oklahoma, when I saw the advertisement in a trade journal for the open CEO position with the FAA Credit Union in 1992. With 25 employees at the time, only one branch at the aeronautical center and $100 million in assets, it was just the opportunity for which I was looking. Q: Did you always work for credit unions? A: Mostly. The first few years after college, I worked in operations for a Galveston-based life insurance company and for four years in the mid-1980s, I worked as vice president and cashier for a five-bank holding company in Galveston. Most recently, before I came here, I served four years as executive vice president for Amoco Federal Credit Union in Texas City. Q: What are the contributions of which you’re proudest at the FAA Credit Union? A: We’ve been on the leading edge, but not the bleeding edge, of technology — adopting home PC-based banking technology and more recently, technology to allow mobile banking. In 2005, when ATM surcharges were growing like wildfire, we partnered with four other credit unions, now there’s 16, to waive fees for our respective members across our combined network of ATMs. Ten years earlier, we’d joined forces to open some five joint credit union service centers, which stay open until 8 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. It’s an ongoing misnomer that you have to be an FAA employee to join our credit union; anybody who lives or works across our eight-county territory can. Our goal is to offer the highest savings rate and lowest loan interest rate. Above all, it’s our customer service — our employees — that keeps us competitive and growing. Q: What’s on tap for 2015? A: We plan to build a branch in Edmond; we currently lease a facility, and build an addition to our leased branch in Capitol Hill. We own our other five facilities: here on South Western, at the FAA, in northwest Oklahoma City, Norman and in Mustang. Q: How do you feel the economy is going? A: Based on consumer lending, good. In 2013, our loan volume grew 1 percent to 2 percent. Last year, it grew by nearly 7 percent. Though we’re concerned about cheap oil prices, and the possible fallout in job cuts across the oil and gas industry, our members are continuing to take out car loans and real estate loans.

A list of some notable multi-sport athletes from Oklahoma high schools who went on to have standout careers in college and beyond.
Multi-sport Oklahomans: A look at some football stars from Oklahoma who excelled at multiple sports
BY BERRY TRAMEL | Feb 1, 2015More and more high school athletes are becoming specialized, concentrating on only one sport. But plenty of standout athletes have excelled despite playing multiple sports. Since 1990, here are some of the Oklahoma high school players who made the NFL or became elite college players after playing multiple sports in high school. Stephen Alexander, 1994, Chickasha: Before he went to OU and on to the NFL, Alexander was a hoops standout in Chickasha. Raymond Austin, 1993, Lawton Eisenhower: Austin was a hurdling star in high school, then made the NFL out of the University of Tennessee. Billy Bajema, 2001, Westmoore: Bajema was hailed as a baseball phenom as a freshman at Westmoore. But he also played football and chose the gridiron over the diamond after high school, going to OSU and then on to the NFL as a tight end. Justin Blackmon, 2008, Plainview: Blackmon physically manhandled college defensive backs while winning two Biletnikoff Awards at OSU. But Blackmon also physically manhandled high school basketball foes of Plainview. Sam Bradford, 2006, Putnam North: You name it, Bradford excelled in it. Football, basketball, golf, even hockey. Bradford focused on football at OU — and won the 2008 Heisman Trophy. He was the 2010 overall No. 1 NFL draft pick. Josh Fields, 2001, Stillwater: Fields was a great quarterback and power hitter not only at Stillwater High School, but OSU. Fields eventually made the major leagues with the Chicago White Sox. Kelly Gregg, 1995, Edmond North: The longtime NFL defensive lineman was a three-time state wrestling champion in Edmond. Cale Gundy, 1990, Midwest City: Just like his brother, Cale was a record-setting quarterback but also a great high school baseball player. Felix Jones, 2005, Tulsa Washington: Jones played several years as a Dallas Cowboys tailback, but he also was a starting guard on Booker T.’s 2005 state finals basketball team. Curtis Lofton, 2005, Kingfisher: The NFL linebacker was a high school basketball standout for the Yellowjackets. Alonzo Mayes, 1993, Douglass: The NFL tight end was a high school basketball star before going to OSU. R.W. McQuarters, 1995, Tulsa Washington: Super Bowl-winning defensive back was a football and basketball star in high school — and played both sports at OSU. T.J. Rushing, 2001, Pauls Valley: Rushing made the Super Bowl with the Indianapolis Colts, but before he went to Stanford, Rushing was a three-sport star at Pauls Valley, including winning four gold medals in the 2001 state track meet. Brandon Weeden, Edmond Santa Fe, 2002: A football and baseball star, Weeden was a second-round draft pick of the Yankees in baseball, then 10 years later was a first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in football. Jason White, 1999, Tuttle: The 2003 Heisman Trophy winner was a basketball star at Tuttle. Rashaun Woods, 1999, Millwood: OSU’s receiver extraordinaire led the Falcons to one of their many state basketball championships.

The only native Oklahoman to score a Super Bowl touchdown hasn’t forgotten Marlow, the town where he grew up. Hard to forget when you moved back there, and raised your kids there, and live there still, driving two minutes to work even on the days when traffic is heavy. And this week, a street was renamed after him.
Why former Oklahoma State, NFL player Terry Brown still loves and lives in his hometown of Marlow
BY BERRY TRAMEL | Jan 17, 2015Terry Brown’s buddies were giving him the business Wednesday at the Marlow Lions Club meeting. Brown’s hometown had renamed a stretch of South 7th Street. Terry Brown Avenue now runs a couple of blocks alongside Outlaw Stadium. Brown shut them up by telling his pals to be careful, else he’d put up a toll booth. It was an empty threat. This half-a-century relationship between a man and his hometown has been about giving, not taking. A toll booth on Terry Brown Avenue would hand out quarters, not require them for passage. The only native Oklahoman to score a Super Bowl touchdown hasn’t forgotten where he grew up. Hard to forget when you moved back there, and raised your kids there, and live there still, driving two minutes to work even on the days when traffic is heavy. “I loved the community,” said Brown, a 1965 Marlow High School graduate. “When they do things, they do it right.” A Christmas parade. A Fourth of July parade. Fireworks displays that rival far bigger cities than this town of 4,662 in Stephens County, between Duncan and Chickasha on Highway 81. The community loves Brown back. He’s been in business for 35 years, the State Farm Insurance agency on North Broadway. Been a civic leader and a contributor to causes and the radio voice of Outlaw football for three decades. A Minnesota Viking safety from 1972-75, the glory days of Bud Grant. Played in two Super Bowls. Recovered a fumble for a touchdown in Super Bowl IX, the Vikes’ 16-6 lost to the Steelers. Minneapolis is a nice place. Brown was a hero. When he finished his football career with the ’76 Cleveland Browns, Brown could have chosen to live anywhere. He picked Marlow. Here’s why. In 1961, John Junior Brown moved his family from Walters to Marlow, to take a job as head electrician for the city. His wife, Kate, saw after their three children. Karen, Jim and Terry. Karen had just graduated high school and was on her way to Central State College. Jim was a high school sophomore, Terry a freshman. The Brown brothers jumped into athletics, but “I don’t think they expected much out of us,” Terry Brown said. One coach suggested they’d make good managers. Might have been a little motivation. In 1964, tragedy struck. John Junior Brown, 43 years old, underwent open heart surgery to repair a valve. He never got off his back and he never woke up. Brown died of pneumonia three weeks later. Kate Brown took a job in a laundry at Fort Sill, about 25 miles to the west. Terry got a job at the Marlow Review, pouring lead in those prehistoric printing days, and building advertisements, often a letter at a time. Kate wasn’t sure she wanted her boys to play football. Marlow coach Sevil Pickett was Old School. A great coach — Marlow won the 1959 state championship — but Old School. “Coach Pickett had a reputation in southern Oklahoma as a tough, no-nonsense, rough-talking, stern, taskmaster,” said Mickey Hoy, who grew up in Marlow, became a high school football coach himself, coaching Davis to two state championships, and recently celebrated his 50th wedding anniversary with the former Karen Brown. For the Brown brothers, Sevil Pickett stepped into the void created by the loss of their father. “Coach Pickett was a great coach,” Terry Brown said. “Back then, they coached a little different. He was pretty tough. But he had a way of getting the most out of you. He was almost like a dad to us.” Pickett consoled Kate and her grieving sons. He was there when their house burned. There when Terry Brown needed advice for college. There to offer an idea that changed Brown’s life. Before Brown’s senior season, he was called to Pickett’s office. Brown had been an end in Marlow’s single wing. Pickett wanted to move Brown to fullback. “He knew something I didn’t know,” Brown said. The move ignited the Outlaws. They beat Bixby for the 1964 state championship and Brown became a star. He drew a variety of scholarship offers. Even asked Pickett where he should go. Pickett wouldn’t say. Pickett had played at Oklahoma A&M in the 1930s but didn’t want to steer his young charge one way or the other. But Brown indeed chose Stillwater, playing for Phil Cutchin at OSU, then getting chosen by the St. Louis Cardinals in the third round of the 1969 NFL Draft. Soon enough, Brown was a Viking. And just as soon as he could, Brown and his wife, Ann, returned to Marlow with children Kristen, Suzzane and Greg. “He could have moved anywhere in the world, but he chose to come back and raise his family there, because he liked what it was all about,” said Greg Brown. “He’s had his business there. Supported things financially as well as supporting everything in the town. Just been a mainstay in the town for a really long time.” And so last Monday, Terry Brown’s hometown gathered to honor him. A couple of former Sooners, Chuck Bowman and Clendon Thomas, made the trip. So did former Cowboy Derrel Gofourth. And OSU associate athletic directors Larry Reece and Kevin Klintworth. The family of Brown’s OSU quarterback, Bob Cutburth, was there. So was the widow of Wally Hilgenberg, the great old Minnesota linebacker who died in 2008 of Lou Gehrig’s disease. “It turned out quite a deal,” Terry Brown said. “Marlow does things right.” Berry Tramel: Berry can be reached at (405) 760-8080 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Brian Bosworth didn’t want a film made about his playing career and life until there was an ending. Bosworth said the ending to “Brian and The Boz” came on March 3, 2013.
Oklahoma football: With a new ESPN film coming out, Brian Bosworth says 'The Boz' is finally dead
By Mel Bracht | Oct 25, 2014Former Oklahoma linebacker Brian Bosworth, one of the most controversial and flamboyant figures ever to play college football, said he didn’t want a movie about his playing career and life made until there was an ending. He said that ending came March 3, 2013, in First Baptist Church in Chickasha when he gave his life to Christ. The Boz, long dormant, was officially dead. “When I was full myself, I was empty of God,” Bosworth said in a phone conversation. “When I decided to deflate myself, I got full of God. Being able to balance that was I needed to do, and I let the other side win.” That story of battling his inner demons is the focus of ESPN’s next 30 for 30 film, “Brian and The Boz,” which premieres at 8 p.m. Tuesday. The captivating 90-minute film was directed by Thaddeus Matula of Double Life Films of Austin, Texas, in conjunction with Texas Crew productions. Matula also directed the award-winning “Pony Excess” on the rise and fall of SMU’s football program. More than 40 people were interviewed for the film, which originally was proposed in 2011, including OU coach Barry Switzer, teammates, rival players and media members. “Before there was a Dennis Rodman, before there was a Deion Sanders, there was a Brian Bosworth,” said former OU running back Spencer Tillman, now a CBS analyst. Part of the documentary was filmed in a storage shed in Austin, Texas. Bosworth and his 16-year-old son, Max, who plays basketball at Austin Westlake High School, pore over Bosworth’s OU memorabilia that had been left in the attic of his parents’ home. As a two-time Butkus Award winner who led the Sooners in tackles for three seasons — including the 1985 national championship season — and is on the ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame, there was plenty of material. Bosworth’s demanding father, Foster, who died in 2009, contributed to his insecurity that he could never measure up. “He’s a very tough man to get any emotion out of and he was difficult to please,” Bosworth told The Oklahoman. “It seems like it was always more negative than it was positive.” Bosworth, 49, who was born in Oklahoma City but went to high school in Texas, said that insecurity led him to commit to nearly every college he visited, including LSU, SMU and Texas A&M, although he always dreamed of playing for the Sooners. “I ended up canceling a trip to Oklahoma, but I did that really for self-preservation because I knew I could fit in at A&M. I did put Oklahoma on such a high pedestal that I didn’t want to set myself up for failure.” Switzer eventually sold him on the idea that he would be a good fit in Norman, starting a unique relationship that went beyond just being a coach. “He replaced my relationship with my father,” Bosworth said. “From his point of view, I had a positive place to go. My father was more of ‘I’m never going to make it.’ It was a great adoption of leaving one environment that was a struggle to get through up until I was 17, 18 years old to get to a place where I felt I was unshackled and was nurtured and given opportunity without judgment.” That freedom led to the development of “The Boz,” the brash side of his personality that led him to stand out off the field and become a media sensation. Looking back, Bosworth said he didn’t think “The Boz” would have emerged at any other program except OU. “People put a title on it, but it was a personality that was just caged up inside me for years and years and never allowed to come out and play. Once I got to Oklahoma, if you really look at it, I was really just emulating a little bit of the behavior pattern of Switzer and his attitudes and the swagger that he had,” Bosworth said. The swagger clearly irritated rival fans. The documentary showed Miami fans singing “Bye, Bye Bosworth” after the Hurricanes upset the No. 1 the Sooners in 1986 and Colorado fans pelting the OU sideline with bottles. Bosworth finally stepped over the line with Switzer at the 1987 Orange Bowl. Suspended for steroid use, he showed up on the sideline wearing a T-shirt that read “National Communists Against Athletes, Welcome to Russia.” He was kicked out of the program. He later admitted he went too far with the protest. In the 2003 “Oklahoma Football Legends Reunion” DVD, he cried and asked teammates for forgiveness in shaming the program for that and other antics as The Boz. “I chose the wrong form with that (T-shirt),” Bosworth said. “I felt betrayed to a certain extent by the system, I felt betrayed a little bit at the time by Oklahoma. We had done a subsequent drug test after that and the drug test showed I was clean. But they didn’t feel like fighting that. They were playing for the national championship. They didn’t need the extra heat.” The infamous T-shirt was part of the memorabilia uncovered in the storage shed. He said he talked his son out of wearing it to school, particularly in Austin. The T-shirt’s sentiment rings true today to some who believe the NCAA is taking advantage of players. “It was a personal statement that I thought I needed to make,” he said. “Not only me was being singled out, but I think players in general, we all felt really frustrated and we still do.” Bosworth has proposed that football players receive some payment in the form of an annuity after graduating. If they leave school early, they get nothing. In the film, Bosworth described his short-lived NFL career with the Seattle Seahawks as “a bust.” In a conversation with The Oklahoman, he said he made the mistake of playing hurt. “I let my pride, stupidity and desire to make everybody happy ruin my career. From that standpoint, that’s something I live with everyday.” He said he never learned to pace himself in the pros. “I played at a different RPM, though. I knew at some point in time, I was going to blow myself up. I didn’t know how to play soft or go in there and just make a tackle. I tried to destroy somebody on every hit that I could get my alignment on.” He called his controversial biography “The Boz,” co-written by Rick Reilly, a mistake. The book included references to cocaine use by OU players on a team that had no rules. “His first pass was outrageous and ridiculous,” Bosworth said. “I called back after the first draft and said, ‘We can’t use this. Half the stuff in here isn’t true.’ Then they said, ‘Well we got to keep something in there for entertainment value.’ I said, ‘You’re just going to (tick) a lot of people off.’ “During that time period of my life, I didn’t feel like I had any control of what was going on. Everybody was making decisions for me. If I had my time machine and could go back, I would get everybody that was around me away from me and just let me do what I was supposed to be doing, which was play football.” In his new career in acting, Bosworth said he is enjoying making faith-based Christian moves. He is completing a new movie, “Do You Believe?” for Pure Flix studio, which will be released next year. Bosworth plays a troubled ex-con, Joe Phillips, who is dying. “I built a prison for myself, in real life being in prison and with my relationships,” he said of his role. “I got saved and my duty from that time forward was to save as many souls as I could.” Bosworth said receiving his own salvation on March 3, 2013, finally has him on the right course after several detours. “Well anything in life, if you don’t fall, then you haven’t lived,” he said. “But if you’re strong enough to get up and keep walking, then you at least have enough gumption that you’re willing to beat life. But it’s the way you get up and walk forward.” Bosworth said he makes it back to Norman regularly to watch OU football games and his daughter, Hayley, a freshman, plays for the Sooner volleyball team.
