Centennial High School Varsity Boys Football
May 25, 2016
McKaufman made his first shot — a 3-pointer — which ignited a 24-point performance to lead the East team to an 85-81 overtime victory against the West in the Little All-City game at Redlands Community College.
Little All-City basketball: Douglass' Patrick McKaufman returns to form
By Scott Wright Staff Writer email@example.com | May 25, 2016EL RENO — After he and the Douglass boys basketball team won the Class 4A state championship in March, Patrick McKaufman headed to the baseball field. And when that ended, he started his offseason football workouts in preparation for college at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M. Yet on Wednesday night, you would've thought he'd never left the basketball gym. McKaufman made his first shot — a 3-pointer — which ignited a 24-point performance to lead the East team to an 85-81 overtime victory against the West in the Little All-City game at Redlands Community College. “I've just been on the weight room and football field the last few weeks,” said McKaufman, a 6-foot-7 forward who could end up being a quarterback or wide receiver in college. “I knew coming in I was gonna try to fire as many shots as I could and still pass the ball, just try to balance it out. “I like big crowds, so I wanted to put on a show.” McKaufman was named the team's Most Valuable Player, and another Patrick — Centennial's Patrick Atkins — took home the same award for the West squad. Atkins had 16 points, including four 3-pointers that helped the West rally from 17 down to force overtime. MANEK HEATS UP IN 3-POINT CONTEST Harrah's Kellen Manek awed the crowd during halftime when he won the 3-point contest by making 13 of 14 shots. “I missed my warm-up and thought it was gonna be a long one,” said the 6-foot-7 Manek, who has signed with Oral Roberts. “But I hit a few to start and thought I was gonna clear the rack for a second.” STAR SPENCER'S BRYSON LEADS EAST TO WIN It took a while for the offenses to start clicking, but buckets finally started falling as the East girls held off the West 44-38. The East led 8-2 after one quarter. Shatoya Bryson of Star Spencer helped the East offense heat up, scoring six points in the first half on her way to 10 for the night to earn MVP honors. “It was tough at first,” Bryson said. “You had to remember to go back to the fundamentals and keep playing through all the frustration. “Once you get in a rhythm, everything starts coming back to you. It was a lot of fun, especially since I know it's one of the last high school games I'll play.” NEWCASTLE'S ENDSLEY BRINGS CHEERING SECTION Nobody had a bigger fan base on hand than Aaliyah Endsley. Several fans were on hand to see the Newcastle senior, cheering loudly each time she made a play. Endsley made their trip worth it. She scored 10 points and was named the West's MVP.
He went into education after college, serving as head football coach at El Reno and Lawton high schools. Bodenhamer guided Lawton to state titles in 1962 and 1963. He was The Oklahoman's All-State Coach of the Year in '63.

Ellis was at the tail end of his playing days, going 0-4 with a 6.55 ERA that season. Otherwise, he had a nice pro career. In 1965, he was a National League All-Star for the Cincinnati Reds. Ellis went 22-10 with 183 strikeouts that season. He had 15 complete games, a number unheard of in this age of big league ball. After his playing career, he was a pitching coach for several teams. *Bill Harrison Sr., 85, of Lindsay was a former sports reporter for the Daily O'Collegian, the student newspaper at Oklahoma State. *William Clover, 88, of Oklahoma City held OU season football tickets for more than 50 years. *Dick Sonnenfeld, 97, of Centennial, Colo.

Putnam City soccer coach Eddie Wright named school's athletic director
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh | Apr 21, 2016Putnam City stayed within the family to fill one of the voids left by A.D. Burtschi's retirement. PC boys soccer coach Eddie Wright was promoted to the position of athletic director, the school district announced Thursday. “It's a dream come true to be named as the athletic director at a place that I have called home for so long,” Wright said. “I appreciate the confidence administrators have shown in me. I look forward to maintaining and enhancing our commitment to our student-athletes and pushing along with other coaches toward excellence in everything that we do.” Wright will remain in his role as soccer coach, leading a program that has seen participation numbers nearly triple since he took over. Wright was a football and soccer player at Putnam City, graduating in 1999. The school's boys basketball coaching vacancy hasn't been filled. FOUR CHOSEN FOR OKLAHOMA OFFICIALS HALL OF FAME The Oklahoma Officials Association announced four new inductees for its Hall of Fame this summer, including a basketball official from the final girls 6-on-6 basketball game in state history. The inductees include Phil Anderson of Lawton, Tom Clayton of Muskogee, Jerry Smith of Yuma, Ariz., and Paul Wilson of Norman. They will be inducted at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, July 23 during the OOA Summer Conference at Westmoore High School. Each member selected was chosen by the OOA Executive Board. Anderson officiated the final 6-on-6 game, a 63-37 win by Stigler over Meeker in the 1995 state tournament. Anderson worked 17 state championship games in his career. Clayton officiated football, basketball, baseball and fastpitch softball for 37 years. He also started and led several local officials groups in Okmulgee and Tulsa. Smith is a native of Red Oak who officiated football, basketball and baseball for 35 years. He's trained more than 150 officials in southeastern Oklahoma currently working with the OSSAA. Wilson is already a member of the ASA Hall of Fame as an umpire. He served on the National Association of Sports Official Board in 1989 and officiated both college basketball and college softball. NOBLE SEEKING NEW BOYS BASKETBALL COACH Noble boys basketball coach Brian Sexton has stepped down after three seasons. Sexton took over the Bears for the 2013-14 season, winning seven games each of his first two years. He led them to a 17-10 record this past season, losing in the Class 5A area consolation game.

"He's the glue," Centennial coach Garrette Mantle said of his youngest son. "He's the light of the room. Always has been."
Skyler Mantle brings Centennial's basketball team joy, smiles, laughs — and perspective
By Jenni Carlson Columnist email@example.com | Feb 28, 2016Coaches and players at Centennial High describe their team's glue guy as a great free-throw shooter who everyone wishes would rub off on the rest of the guys, a smiling face in the locker room and a cheerleader on the bench. So what that he's only 4-foot-3, 64 pounds and 12 years old? "He's the glue," Centennial coach Garrette Mantle said. "He's the light of the room. "Always has been." Mantle would know. He and wife, Pam, welcomed their second son, Skyler, into the world 12 years ago this month, and life hasn't been the same. Skyler has Down syndrome. Some might focus on what the chromosomal abnormality left him without, particularly since his dad comes from a family that includes his uncle, baseball great Mickey Mantle, and his dad, longtime prep coach Larry Mantle. But talk to Skyler's family and friends at Centennial, and there's no mention of what he lacks. Instead, they talk about all the things that he's brought to their lives. Happiness. Smiles. Joy. Laughs. Perspective. As Oklahoma high school basketball hits a crescendo — state tournaments for the smallest classes begin Thursday while the bigger classes play with state spots on the line — Centennial is again one of the top Class 3A teams. Whether it makes state for the sixth consecutive year remains to be seen. But it won't be for lack of encouragement. Skyler will make sure of that. *** Garrette Mantle was coaching at Cameron University when Pam, a school counselor, got pregnant with their second child. She went through all the tests, and her obstetrician always said everything looked great. But after an emergency C-section and some anxious hours, a doctor came to talk to Garrette. "You have a beautiful Down syndrome boy," the doctor said. Garrette wasn't sure he'd heard right. "What?" he said. "You've got a beautiful Down syndrome boy. He's going to be healthy, but he has Down syndrome." Pam eventually asked her obstetrician why no one had ever said anything about it. The tests she'd had done during pregnancy surely showed markers for Down. She was told, "I just didn't think with you two it would've made any difference anyway." True enough. Still, in Garrette's shock, he told the doctor the first thing that came to his mind. "That means he'll never be the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys?" The doctor nodded and smiled. "That's right." Skyler Mantle would never follow in Roger Staubach's shoes, but the Mantles would soon learn just how capable their son was. *** Skyler avoided many of the physical problems that typically accompany Down syndrome. Many are born with a hole in their heart. Skyler wasn't. Fine motor skills have never been a problem either. Now a fifth grader, Skyler can crush a golf ball and swish a free throw with ease. "I wish he could teach us how to shoot free throws," said his big brother, Matthew, a sophomore reserve on Centennial's basketball team. Everyone who knows Skyler suspects that being around sports all his life has helped him physically, mentally, socially and more. He's grown up in the gym and on the golf course. He's always watched football and baseball and any other sport that comes on TV. But his point of reference is always his dad's teams. When he watches a Thunder game and sees Russell Westbrook introduced, for example, he gets mad. That's because in Sky's mind, the guy wearing No. 0 is Matthew Johnson, who played on his dad's first team at Centennial. He wore No. 0. So, apologies to Russell, but for Skyler Mantle, anyone who wears No. 0 will always be Matthew Johnson. "He loves these kids," his dad said. And they love him. *** Des'mond Cooper grins wide when he hears Skyler's name. "Every time I see him, it's like, 'Big Des!'" Cooper said, still smiling. He talked about his special handshake with Skyler. He laughed about how they started it as a joke — vigorously shaking hands up and down for a long time — but how it's now become their thing. Then Big Des grew serious. "I admire Skyler," he said. The feeling is shared. Every Centennial player wants Skyler on the bench during games, on the court during warmups, and in the locker room before and after games. Not that anyone could keep him away anyway — Skyler is a happy-go-lucky force of nature. A couple weeks ago, Marlow came in for a girls-boys doubleheader. During the boys game, Skyler got the Marlow girls to sit in a line so he could run by and give them high fives. He cheers for everyone. Doesn't matter who Centennial is playing either. Could be a cross-town rival like John Marshall. Could be a far-flung opponent like Marlow. But he saves most of his smiles and hugs, his shoulder pats and handshakes for Centennial. When the coaches get mad at the players, Skyler will go around the locker room and tap them on the shoulders. When players sub out and come to the bench angry, Skyler will meet them with a smile and a high five. "Everything's good," his dad said. "There are no adversaries." He smiled. "It changes the way you see the world." No one more than him. *** Garrette Mantle has always been one of the good guys in coaching. Teaches the game. Demands high standards. As much as anything, though, he cares about kids. But he believes he's a better coach to other people's kids because of his kid. Raising Skyler has helped him be more mindful that every kid has gifts, but every kid doesn't have every talent. So, do what you do best. Play to your strengths. "If you're better from 100 yards in than you are from 65," he'll tell kids, using a golf analogy, "then lay up. "Do what you do that's good." The results are obvious. After Scott Raper turned Centennial from new school to powerhouse program in six seasons, Mantle took over in 2013. The program has remained strong, reaching the state semis or better the past two seasons. The players deserve credit for that, but they are made better by Mantle. And he is made better by Skyler. "You knew it was going to be different," Mantle said of life after Skyler was born, "but it's a good different. It's meant to be. "He touches our lives, but he touches a lot of lives." Before Centennial's district playoff win over Harding Fine Arts, the team circled in the locker room for a prayer. Players and coaches put their arms around the shoulders of the guys next to them. For Patrick Atkins, the team's leading scorer, and Des'mond Cooper, that meant putting their arms down — way down — to reach Skyler's shoulders. The smile on Skyler's face nearly reached from one side of the locker room to the other. "My family right there," Atkins said. Skyler Mantle doesn't have a jersey, but he is part of this team. He is the glue. Jenni Carlson: Jenni can be reached at (405) 475-4125 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Oklahoman's Little All-City football team: Heritage Hall's Tevin McDaniel emerges from father's shadow to win Offensive Player of the Year honorJan 4, 2016
Tevin delivered a remarkable season for the Chargers as they rolled to an undefeated season and second straight Class 3A state championship.
The Oklahoman's Little All-City football team: Heritage Hall's Tevin McDaniel emerges from father's shadow to win Offensive Player of the Year honor
By Jacob Unruh Staff Writer email@example.com | Jan 4, 2016Heritage Hall senior Tevin McDaniel stepped onto the new turf at Taft Stadium in Week 3 with the purpose of doing something his father never did at that venue. A star receiver at John Marshall and Oklahoma in the 1990s, Michael McDaniel set a personal record with five touchdown receptions in one half at Taft Stadium before lightning ended the demolition of Northeast. Tevin fell one score shy of that family mark in a rout of Casady earlier this season, a feat he says Michael teased him about that night. Tevin was better this night against Centennial, catching six touchdowns in the first half of the 55-0 rout. “When I got home, he didn't have anything else to say to me,” Tevin McDaniel said. “I was just laughing.” Added Michael: “I'm proud of him, but my coach would have let me play in the second half had the storm not stopped us.” Tevin delivered a remarkable season for the Chargers as they rolled to an undefeated season and second straight Class 3A state championship. He caught 45 passes for 1,192 yards and 22 touchdowns, and he also rushed for 727 yards and 12 touchdowns to earn The Oklahoman's Little All-City Offensive Player of the Year honors. He also recorded a school-record 18 sacks and 97 tackles as a defensive end. It was the kind of season that impressed his dad, who remains a pastor and part-time employee at Heritage Hall. “Let me tell you, he's better than me in so many ways,” said Michael, a Parade All-American in high school. “He's a better man, he's a better student-athlete, he's a better athlete. If I was who Tevin was, I would be much further in life than I am now, and I'm not in a bad place either.” Tevin holds just one scholarship offer, though, and that comes from Air Force. At just 6-feet tall, recruiters have struggled to determine what position fits him best. He could be a running back, he could be an H-back or he could be something else entirely. At Heritage Hall, it didn't matter where he was. He changed each game. “It was super special, especially since his dad played for my dad,” Heritage Hall coach Brett Bogert said. “I've known him since he was born. He's gotten better and better each year.” He's improved so much to the point that he ended his high school career recently at the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl with the belief that he is better than his father. “It wasn't ever me trying to be better than him or be him or any of that,” he said. “It was just me being the best player that I could be and wherever that took me. Really, we're just two completely different builds, two completely different players. “It's a great opportunity to push yourself to want people to remember your name too, not just as Michael McDaniel's son. But I'll say yes. He'll say no. But yes I do think I'm better than him.”

All-State football: Heritage Hall's Tevin McDaniel emerges from father's shadow with impressive seasonJan 3, 2016

All-State football: Heritage Hall's Tevin McDaniel emerges from father's shadow with impressive season
By Jacob Unruh Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Jan 3, 2016Heritage Hall senior Tevin McDaniel stepped onto the new turf at Taft Stadium in Week 3 with the purpose of doing something his father never did at that venue. A star receiver at John Marshall and Oklahoma in the 1990s, Michael McDaniel set a personal record with five touchdown receptions in one half at Taft Stadium before lightning ended the demolition of Northeast. Tevin fell one score shy of that family mark in a rout of Casady earlier this season, a feat he says Michael teased him about that night. Tevin was better this night against Centennial, catching six touchdowns in the first half of the 55-0 rout. “When I got home, he didn't have anything else to say to me,” Tevin McDaniel said. “I was just laughing.” Added Michael: “I'm proud of him, but my coach would have let me play in the second half had the storm not stopped us.” Tevin delivered a remarkable season for the Chargers as they rolled to an undefeated season and second straight Class 3A state championship. He caught 45 passes for 1,192 yards and 22 touchdowns, and he also rushed for 727 yards and 12 touchdowns to earn a spot as a receiver on The Oklahoman's All-State football team. He also recorded a school-record 18 sacks and 97 tackles as a defensive end. It was the kind of season that impressed his dad, who remains a pastor and part-time employee at Heritage Hall. “Let me tell you, he's better than me in so many ways,” said Michael, a Parade All-American in high school. “He's a better man, he's a better student-athlete, he's a better athlete. If I was who Tevin was, I would be much further in life than I am now, and I'm not in a bad place either.” Tevin holds just one scholarship offer, though, and that comes from Air Force. At just 6-feet tall, recruiters have struggled to determine what position fits him best. He could be a running back, he could be an H-back or he could be something else entirely. At Heritage Hall, it didn't matter where he was. He changed each game. “It was super special, especially since his dad played for my dad,” Heritage Hall coach Brett Bogert said. “I've known him since he was born. He's gotten better and better each year.” Tevin's improved so much that he ended his high school career recently at the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl with the belief that he is better than his father. “It wasn't ever me trying to be better than him or be him or any of that,” he said. “It was just me being the best player that I could be and wherever that took me. Really, we're just two completely different builds, two completely different players. “It's a great opportunity to push yourself to want people to remember your name too, not just as Michael McDaniel's son. But I'll say yes. He'll say no. But yes, I do think I'm better than him.”

Williams’ versatility led to him being used as a receiver, blocker and running back in short-yardage situations.
High school notebook: Illinois offers Mustang's Blake Williams
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh Staff Writers | Dec 19, 2015Illinois became the second Division I football program to offer a scholarship to Mustang tight end Blake Williams, who has been a late-rising prospect in the recruiting world after missing two seasons in high school. North Carolina offered the 6-foot-5, 225-pound senior last summer. Williams' versatility led to him being used as a receiver, blocker and running back in short-yardage situations. He finished with 25 catches for 378 yards and four touchdowns. He rushed for two more scores. Williams missed the previous two seasons because of rare medical condition that disrupts the automatic functions of his nervous system. With the condition finally under control, he was able to play his senior season. Williams is one of three Division I prospects for the Broncos. Quarterback Chandler Garrett is verbally committed to Wyoming, and tight end Bryce Roberts has offers from New Mexico State and Stephen F. Austin. KETCHUM'S JANWAY CHOSEN FOR USA FOOTBALL UNDER-19 TEAM Ketchum senior Garret Janway will participate in the International Bowl as part of the USA Football under-19 team next month.

USA Football fields teams in five different age groups, from under-14 to under-19. Players practice together for a week prior to the games. COACHES RECOGNIZE BETHANY'S HUDSON HAWS IN DISTRICT AWARDS With several important awards to give out, the top of the list for the coaches of District 3A-2 was an easy selection. Before they got around to naming the top offensive or defensive players in the district, the coaches chose to make special recognition of injured Bethany linebacker Hudson Haws with the Courage Award. Haws suffered three broken vertebrae in his neck and back during a game at Blanchard in late October.

By Scott Wright Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org | Oct 14, 2015As Week 7 of the high school football season arrives, playoff races — and more importantly, the chase for district championships — start to take shape. We've got a No. 1 vs. No. 2 battle in Class 6A-II, with second-ranked Bartlesville visiting Tulsa Washington on Friday. And a 1 vs. 3 in Class 5A, with top-ranked Lawton MacArthur hosting Ardmore, also on Friday. But Thursday is full of excitement, too, with Cushing at Heritage Hall in a rematch of the Class 3A title game, and two of the west's best 6A-I teams in doing battle with potentially big playoff stakes on the line when Southmoore hosts Mustang. Each week, The Oklahoman's Scott Wright predicts the score of every game in the state. Here are the Week 7 picks: Last week's record: 142-31 (82.1 pct.) Overall record: 835-218 (79.3 pct.)

OU football: 'They'll probably make a movie' about Jarvis Baxter's journey to Sooners' starting lineup
BY BERRY TRAMEL | Sep 8, 2015NORMAN — Jarvis Baxter trotted out of Owen Field's southeast tunnel, wearing a crimson jersey with a No. 1 on the back, and time stood still. He wasn't dreaming. This was really happening. He really was an Oklahoma Sooner. He really was starting at flanker in an OU season opener. “I soaked it all in,” Baxter said. “I mean, words can't explain how I was feeling.” Many a walkon has made the team. Some earn scholarships. A few have become stars. But who has a story like Baxter, who literally two months ago was headed to the University of South Florida, the best scholarship offer Baxter received out of Trinity Valley Community College? Instead, on the very first snap of OU's 2015 season, Baker Mayfield fired a pass for a 15-yard gain, caught by Jarvis Baxter. “Hell, they'll probably make a movie about it one day,” OU offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley said. Lots of receivers have fallen from the sky onto the OU roster in recent years. Justin Brown transferred in the Penn State scandal. Jalen Saunders transferred from Fresno State and got a medical ruling to play immediately. Lacoltan Bester was a late junior-college signee. But Baxter is an even greater manna. This is the Dom Whaley Story, receiver edition, except condensed. Whaley went from Subway-working walkon to starting tailback, but he at least sat out a season. Baxter showed up in August, unknown to all but two, and was atop the depth chart before the month was out. Baxter is one of those millions of people across the globe capable of doing great things, just in need of a chance. Baxter's roadblock was lack of height. Six-foot receivers with Baxter's skills get recruited by Big 12 schools. Five-foot-9 receivers with Baxter's skills get recruited by SMU, to which Baxter committed while at Lakeview Centennial High School in the Dallas suburb of Garland. Here's the story of how Mayfield's first pass as the Oklahoma quarterback went to a receiver so anonymous that the announcers on OU's pay-per-view telecast called him “K.J. Young,” who wore No. 1 last season but was booted from the team last spring. Baxter never made it to SMU. He ended up at Trinity Valley and was a good ballplayer; he made second-team all-conference last season. A bevy of mid-majors again recruited him, including East Carolina, which then employed Riley. But East Carolina gave its scholarship to someone a little closer to the Atlantic, and Baxter signed with South Florida. He needed 12 hours of summer school to be admitted, had the 12 hours at Trinity Valley virtually passed, then discovered in mid-July that USF only counts a maximum of nine hours credit from any summer semester. The Bulls released Baxter from his letter of intent, and he again was a free agent. Southern Miss, South Alabama and Toledo were Baxter's next best scholarship offers. He reached out to former foe Dede Westbrook, who had signed with the Sooners out of Blinn Junior College. Westbrook and Baxter had become social media friends in 2013, then met and exchanged phone numbers after their game that season. In July, Baxter asked Westbrook for advice. Westbrook told Baxter to come to Norman. Westbrook told Riley that Baxter was free. Trinity Valley coach Brad Smiley called Riley and put in a good word for Baxter. “I was like, 'Man, we would love to have you here at Oklahoma,'” Westbrook said. Riley made an offer: no scholarship for a semester, but one would be ready in January. It was a financial burden to pay for school this semester, but Baxter had been enchanted with the Sooners since his junior year of high school, when he visited during an OU-Texas A&M game. OU didn't end up recruiting him, but Baxter never forgot the experience. Baxter jumped at the chance, and Riley jumped at the chance to get Baxter. At East Carolina, Riley said, “We liked his film. Thought he was a good player. Thought he was a little under-recruited at the time, which a lot of small receivers are.” When the chance of getting Baxter to OU arrived, Riley said, “knowing our receiver situation, that we could use some guys, especially a guy this year, I said, ‘damn right I'm interested.'” Even more impressive in Riley's eyes was the way Baxter took care of business. Guys coming from junior college don't always have a lot of administrative help. Paperwork can be painfully slow. “All the things you have to do to get a kid eligible, get a kid in school, and a lot of it, especially in junior college, is on that kid, because they don't always have as much help,” Riley said. “The way he got all his stuff done to be here for the first day of practice was a minor miracle. It shows you how bad he wanted to be here.” Then Baxter showed up and got to work. “His first day, we looked around and were like, ‘Where the heck did he come from and why hasn't he been here?'” said Mayfield. “We knew right away that he was a playmaker.” And on Aug. 31, OU released its first depth chart. Someone tweeted it out. Baxter saw it. Saw that he would start against Akron. And then on the first snap, after that trip through the tunnel, the Sooners called a pass play that makes Baxter the first or second option. “I thought it was good chance it's coming to me,” Baxter said. “Got me more anxious, waiting for that pass. I turned around, the ball was there, and it was me.” Baxter finished the game with five catches for 51 yards. Riley called Baxter “probably our most consistent receiver” against Akron. Said Mayfield, “It was exciting to see him get out there and get game experience. He was pretty nervous. He is an energetic guy and cares about football a lot. You can see by the way he was blocking for his teammates. He got his nerves out pretty early and settled in. You can tell by the way he played.” And now Baxter remains at the top of the depth chart as the Sooners move from Akron to a Saturday night showdown against Tennessee in Neyland Stadium. Baxter thinks back to his July conversations with his old foe Westbrook. “I trusted his words,” Baxter said. “Now that I'm here, everything he told me is happening. All the time I pinch myself, because this is real. It really happened. I actually played a game for Oklahoma.” Berry Tramel: Berry can be reached at (405) 760-8080 or at email@example.com.

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.

New OKC Thunder coach Billy Donovan honed his game and made his name in the toughest of basketball environmentsAug 1, 2015
Before there was Billy Donovan the iconic coach or Billy The Kid bombing 3s at Providence College there was Billy the kid, a Long Island youth addicted to basketball.
New OKC Thunder coach Billy Donovan honed his game and made his name in the toughest of basketball environments
BY ANTHONY SLATER | Aug 1, 2015The Wheelchair Classic is an annual hoops tournament that brings together the best amateur basketball talent from around New York City, dividing teams up into the boroughs. After the Big East formed in 1979, basketball interest in the northeast spiked. The early ‘80s produced a golden age for high school point guards in NYC, meaning the 1983 Wheelchair event, the 10th annual, was a must-see edition. That graduating class had Dwayne “Pearl” Washington, the playground legend and soon-to-be Syracuse star, and future NBA starters Kenny Smith and Mark Jackson. But it was a sub 6-foot white kid from an affluent area of Long Island who stole the show in that showcase game. His name was Billy Donovan. “Oh, Billy went off,” said his high school teammate, Frank Williams. Donovan’s Queens team faced the Brooklyn squad led by Pearl Washington, the game’s headliner. Months earlier, Donovan battled Washington’s in a six-quarter high school scrimmage. Pearl had 82 points. “We pressed the whole game and he just weaved in and out,” Donovan said. “I learned a lot.” Donovan was a game-control point guard. Slick ball-handling was his greatest strength. Pearl was a wizard with the ball, his moves legendary. At the Wheelchair Classic, Donovan put his mental notes from the scrimmage to use. “I don’t think Pearl was ready for it,” Williams laughed. In the highlight play of his highlight day, Donovan sent Pearl sprawling on a left-handed, inside-out crossover dribble, cruising past him for a layup. “Pearl nearly fell down,” said Billy’s childhood best friend Kevin Quigley. “The crowd went nuts. Just hooting and hollering. The little white boy just juked Pearl out of his shoes.” Billy Donovan made a career out of willing himself to success. Too small and athletically limited to compete against premiere athletes? He molded himself into a player and led Providence to an unlikely Final Four run. Florida is a second-tier hoops program at a football school? He quickly turned them into a national powerhouse. Too inexperienced to coach in the NBA? Sam Presti just handed him the keys to the most important season in the Thunder’s brief franchise history. But before there was Billy Donovan the iconic coach or Billy The Kid bombing 3s at Providence College there was Billy the kid, a Long Island youth addicted to basketball. “It was almost an obsession,” Quigley said. ‘CAN WE STOP WITH THE DRIBBLING?’ William Donovan Sr. left Boston College in 1962 as the program’s third-leading scorer. He introduced his first child to the game at a young age. Bill coached some local CYO teams. His 2-year-old son tagged along. Things started to get a lot more serious around age 11. Billy had rare focus and drive for a young kid. His father preached specialization. So Billy quit football, a sport he enjoyed, because it cut into his hoops time too much. When he was in the seventh grade, the family — Billy, his parents and two sisters — moved into a more spacious home in Rockville Center. His father constructed a cement court in the backyard. Floodlights shined over it, meaning he could play day and night. He always did. “His next-door neighbor, Mrs. Muda, she used to get aggravated because he’d sometimes be playing out there until 10, 11 at night,” Quigley said. “She used to call,” his mother Joan Donovan said. “And it would be ‘Joan, can we stop with the constant dribbling of the ball?’” His mother was forced to institute a backyard curfew. So Billy found other ways to get in his late-night hoops fix. Quigley remembers the two of them sneaking down a back alley adjacent to their high school gym, slipping in and playing until after midnight. “Macken Mortuary was right next door,” Quigley said. “There was a door in the back and we used to put a piece of electrical tape so it would close but not click shut. They figured that out at some point, so me and Billy used to leave a window open, just a small crack, and then climb through it. No one could see us except maybe the mortician.” But Billy wasn’t there to just shoot around. He always had a perceived weakness he was working on. No left hand? He drilled it. Too small to get a shot off? He’d gather two friends, give himself only two dribbles and try to find windows to score. For better conditioning, he’d play Quigley one-on-one. They went at it full court. “I can assure you it wasn’t my idea,” Quigley said. That dedication meant a severe lack of a social life. Billy was well-liked, invited to plenty of events. He rarely went if basketball wasn’t involved. Quigley tells a story about riding his bike home from a party, booking it one end of Rockville Center to his house on the other. Billy’s place was in the middle. As Quigley passed it, he noticed the outside lights on. “He’s shooting hoops as I’m trying to get home from the party,” Quigley said. ‘THAT’S MY POINT GUARD’ More than those long days in the backyard or the persistent self-drilling or even St. Agnes’ rigorous hoops schedule — “his high school coach would play any team, anywhere,” his father said — Billy credits some summer pickup hoops games most for his unlikely rise to a Division I recruit. Two of Billy’s St. Agnes teammates were from nearby Hempstead, a rougher area of Long Island. Billy grew close to them over time. Bernard Woodside eventually went to LSU, Frank Williams to Fordham. The trio wanted to train together. Starting the summer before their junior year, Billy traveled with them to parks across Queens to face some of the area’s best hoops talent. They’d go to I.S. 8 in the South Jamaica or Centennial Park in Roosevelt. “I was the only white guy in there,” Billy said. He’d either hitch a ride with Frank and Bernard or take the subway to the closest stop. Frank, all 6-foot-6, 250 pounds of him, and Bernard would meet him there and walk Billy into the park. “Bernard and myself took great pride in making him feel at ease in those environments,” Frank said. “Billy was our guy.” At first, most figured they could punk the undersized guard. Frank remembers playing at the Salvation Army near Hempstead and Billy was fouled hard. “I said something to the effect of ‘Yo, dude, that’s my point guard. You don’t do that.’” It was just the kind of challenge Billy craved. “It was great,” Billy said. “Because there was absolutely no respect for me. I had to earn respect … There’s no handouts. There’s no entitlement. There’s no nothing. You have to prove yourself.” The games were always highly competitive, with winners staying on and a crowd of people desperately waiting for their shot. If you screwed up, you heard about it. If you lost, your day was ruined. “It wasn’t like an And-1 hoops mixtape kind of environment,” Billy said. “Guys were playing to win. Guys on Saturday are coming to workout and they are not trying to go home after 15 minutes of run. The intensity of the games got to a very, very high level.” Billy felt the greatest compliment was when, while waiting to play, strangers started coming over and asking him to join their team. The competition improved a game that would take him to the Providence and the Final Four . The environment toughened him. The success bred confidence. “It really, to me, shaped me in so many different ways,” Billy said. The competition molded his game into a Division I difference-maker. The success bred confidence that he could compete with anyone, anywhere, on the court or recruiting trail. But most importantly, the environment toughened, matured and educated him about life beyond basketball, allowing him to connect with players all over the world and grow into the coach he is today. Billy remembers one day getting to the park 90 minutes early. He’d gotten to know some of the players. So to kill time, he went to one of the guy’s homes. “We’re sitting in his apartment, his mom’s working two jobs and wasn’t even home,” Billy said. “He opens up the fridge and the only thing that was in there was a jug of water and the guy hadn’t eaten all day. “(I) was exposed to what actual real life living was like and what guys were dealing with on a regular basis.”
