High school basketball: OKC Storm hosting nationally ranked opponents
By Scott Wright and Jacob Unruh | Feb 19, 2014The Oklahoma City Storm, the defending homeschool national champions, will host some of the nation's top high school basketball teams over the next three days in the OKC Storm Festival. Thursday's action will include two games at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in downtown Oklahoma City. Flower Mound, Texas, will face OnPoint Academy at noon, followed by the Storm taking on Prime Prep at approximately 1:30 p.m. Fans can enter through the southeast entrance of the arena. Prime Prep, the Dallas-area school started by NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, is currently ranked No. 12 in the nation by USA Today. The Storm is led by TCU signee Chauncey Collins, who is averaging 27.1 points per game this season. Festival action will continue all day Friday and Saturday, with some of the best programs in the region coming to OKC, including Sunrise Christian from Kansas and other notable Texas programs. Friday and Saturday games will be played at Church of the Harvest, located at Interstate 35 and NE 63rd St. CARL ALBERT'S WARREN SCORES 45 Carl Albert senior Cameron Warren nearly set a school record Tuesday night, scoring 45 points as the Titans rallied for a 72-66 win at Ardmore. Warren's 45 points were one shy of the record held by Carl Albert coach Jay Price. It was the fifth straight win for the fourth-ranked Titans, who are 16-5 on the season. Southmoore's Brickman to be honored Southmoore football coach Jeff Brickman has been selected to receive the Semper Fidelis Coaching Award from the U.S. Marine Corps, in conjunction with the Glazier Football Clinics. The award is given annually to high school football coaches who exemplify the Marines' standard of excellence, which constitutes integrity, responsibility, honesty, honor, courage, and commitment. Brickman is being honored for his dedication to his football players and his community in providing aid to them after the May 20, 2013, tornado. Brickman led a campaign to help those in need by working for several weeks, raising more than $90,000 in cash and gift cards, which went to benefit the 22 Southmoore football players who lost their homes, as well as 88 other families that suffered losses from the tornado. Brickman will be recognized at the Glazier Football Clinic on Friday in Tulsa.
Wednesday turned into a huge day for the 6-foot-10 center.
High school notebook: Comanche's Jacob Hammond signs with Nebraska, regains eligibility
BY JACOB UNRUH | Nov 13, 2013Hammond signs with Nebraska, regains eligibility Wednesday turned into a huge day for Comanche senior Jacob Hammond. The 6-foot-10 center not only signed his National Letter of Intent with Nebraska in the morning, he also won his appeal for a hardship waiver with the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors. “I've been going through this whole trial and tribulation thing for about a month now,” Hammond said. “Today, I was expecting that they were probably going to deny it going into it. If they did deny it, we were going to go to the courts with it. I'm just happy that we didn't have to go through that huge process.” The board voted 7-6 following an executive session in favor of Hammond, who was applying for a fifth year of eligibility after repeating the eighth grade and also his varsity athletic eligibility. The vote was tied until OSSAA board of directors president Todd Steidley ruled in favor of Hammond. Hammond spent last season at Sunrise Christian in Bel Aire, Kan., but moved back to Oklahoma over the summer. After originally looking to join a new Oklahoma City-area prep school, United Prep, he later moved to Comanche before the school year started. He began his high school career at Duncan as a freshman and then played for the OKC Storm homeschool team as a sophomore. Due to beginning his eligibility in Duncan and then moving out of district, he had to receive a hardship to play at Comanche once he moved back. For Hammond, it's a chance to play one more season in front of his hometown fans. “This is great to come back home where people have seen me since I was younger, when I wasn't as good,” he said. “It's great to be in a stable situation here and it's going to be a good season.” Hammond was originally committed to Oklahoma but switched his commitment to the Huskers earlier this year. CLASS 6A TITLE DATE SET The Class 6A football championship game is officially scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 5, at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater. The board unanimously approved moving the game there due to Bedlam being played on Saturday, with Classes 5A and 4A playing their championship games at 1 p.m. and 7 Friday. It has not been determined which class will play the first game on Friday. Also, with the 6A game being moved to Thursday, the previous week's semifinals will be played at a neutral site on Friday, Nov. 29. SCOTT REINSTATED Former Sequoyah-Tahlequah football coach Brent Scott was reinstated by the OSSAA after submitting a letter pledging to obey the OSSAA regulations moving forward. Scott was suspended for one year after allowing 12 of his players to attend summer football camps paid for by the school, which is a violation of OSSAA rules. Sequoyah-Tahlequah was forced to forfeit nine games and a spot in the 2012 playoffs. Scott is still involved in a termination lawsuit with Sequoyah-Tahlequah and chose not to make an appearance due to the case. His lawyer, Chad Smith, also could not attend. SPRING BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP SITES SET The Class 6A and 5A spring baseball championships are returning to the Oklahoma City metro. During Wednesday's meeting, OSSAA assistant director Mike Whaley informed the board of directors that the Classes 2A-6A will play at Oklahoma's L. Dale Mitchell Park and Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.
As of Tuesday, only the Owasso at Jenks game was still scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff among 6A playoff games.
High school notebook: Westmoore-Sand Springs to kick off at 7 p.m. Friday
BY SCOTT WRIGHT AND JACOB UNRUH | Nov 12, 2013All but one of the Class 6A first-round playoff games will begin at 7 p.m. after Westmoore at Sand Springs joined the group of early starts. As of Tuesday, only the Owasso at Jenks game was still scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff among 6A playoff games. The 7:30 p.m. kickoff is customary for OSSAA playoff games, but the start time can be changed if both teams agree to it. Many Class 6A schools around the state, including all of those in the Oklahoma City metro area, have been starting regular-season games at 7 p.m. for the last two seasons. PC WEST DUO TO SIGN THURSDAY A pair of Putnam City West basketball players will sign with NCAA Division I programs Thursday. Omega Harris, the 6-foot-2 guard who led the Patriots to the state tournament last season, will sign with UTEP, while his new teammate, Stephen Edwards, will sign with Santa Clara. Edwards began his high school career at Putnam City and played last season at Del City before moving to PC West earlier this year. Harris and Edwards make up two of the six boys basketball players in the state currently committed to Division I programs. HERITAGE HALL GAINING STEAM After a rough 2-4 start to the season full of injuries, Heritage Hall has been gaining steam heading into Friday's playoff game at Lone Grove with three straight wins. And the tough schedule that featured top-ten teams like Clinton, Kingfisher and Davis has the Chargers gaining confidence. “Obviously it lets you know what it takes to be successful in the playoffs,” Heritage Hall coach Andy Bogert said. “We were kind of outmanned there early. In the past it's been a great indicator, and it still is, on what you need to improve. We're not going to be intimidated by anybody and that helps, too.” The Chargers (5-4) have had a stretch of bad luck. Heritage Hall has lost 12 players to season-ending injuries, including eight starters. “We've got ACLs, concussions, three broken bones and a foot,” Bogert said. “It goes on and on.” Junior quarterback Connor McGinnis is healthy, though. He's thrown 16 touchdowns and rushed for five. HAMMOND APPEAL SET FOR WEDNESDAY Comanche basketball player Jacob Hammond's appeal in front of the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors is set for Wednesday morning at 11. Hammond, one of the state's top recruits in the 2014 class, is appealing for a fifth year of eligibility. He spent last season at Sunrise Christian in Bel Aire, Kan., after spending his freshman year at Duncan and sophomore year with the OKC Storm homeschool team. Hammon is verbally committed to Nebraska after originally committing to Oklahoma. The reinstatement of football coach Brent Scott is also listed on the agenda for the monthly board meeting Wednesday. Scott was suspended one year for his involvement with Sequoyah-Tahlequah's violations that forced them to forfeit football games last season and was the subject of a recent unfavorable ruling by the Oklahoma Supreme Court against the OSSAA. HOBART RETURNS TO PLAYOFFS UNDER DALKE When Bill Dalke returned to his hometown of Hobart, he set his sights on rebuilding the program to the level it reached under his father, Phil Dalke. Bill Dalke, a former Oklahoma linebacker, led the Bearcats back to the playoffs in his first season at the helm, earning the third seed in District 2A-3. Hobart visits Kingston in the first round of the Class 2A playoff Friday night, looking for its first playoff victory since 2006.
The new landscape of Class 6A football is a little clearer.
High school notebook: OSSAA board approves ADM, sets new Class 6A football divisions
BY JACOB UNRUH, SCOTT WRIGHT AND TRENT SHADID, Staff Writers | Aug 14, 2013The new landscape of Class 6A football is a little clearer. The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors unanimously approved the new average daily membership Wednesday, confirming the new divisions in Class 6A football for the 2014 and 2015 seasons. Class 6A will be divided into two 16-team divisions beginning the 2014 season. Each division will have its own postseason and champion. However, U.S. Grant will not be involved in Division II, as it had previously received approval to not participate in football for four years. That will leave Division II with 15 teams. Capitol Hill will also not be involved in Class 5A football for the same span, leaving the class with 31 teams. Under the new average attendance numbers, Putnam City is No. 16, marking the cutoff point for Class 6A Division I. With the board's approval Wednesday, the districts can now be set for the 2014-15 seasons. That is expected to take place later this month. BOARD CLARIFIES LANGUAGE OF POOL PLAY RULE The Wright City case last spring still has a lingering effect with the OSSAA. The OSSAA clarified language of the pool play rule for baseball and softball, ensuring the rule would be understood in the future. The rule will now state that in pool play, “if two or more games are played after the completion of pool play then all pool play games shall count against the regular season limitations.” Baseball and softball teams are allowed 22 regular season games. Last spring Wright City exceeded the limit, but raised concerns of Yukon possibly violating the pool play limitations. The OSSAA had already determined Yukon did not break the rule. OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley told the board he just wanted to clarify the interpretation. “Our interpretation of the pool play rule has always been you've got your games within the pool, you play those within the pool, if you come out of the pool you can play one game,” he told them. “If you play more than one game, then all of those games that you played during the pool count against your regular season. For those that are short on games during the regular season, they can come out and play multiple games.” BRICKTOWN TO HOST FALL BASEBALL The fall baseball state championship games will remain at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark after the OSSAA board of directors unanimously approved the location. The games are scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 12. The board has continuously attempted to bring the spring state championship games to Bricktown, but availability of the ballpark in May is more difficult to manage. BROYLES ELECTED TO OSSAA BOARD Braggs superintendent Michael Broyles was elected to the OSSAA board of directors for the Northeast Quadrant, Division III. Broyles replaces Dudley Hume, of Webbers Falls. Hume resigned over the summer from his position on the board. Broyles was in attendance Wednesday, but did not participate in the voting process of any of the cases on the agenda. COMANCHE'S HAMMOND COMMITS TO NEBRASKA Former Oklahoma basketball commit Jacob Hammond appears to have found his college home, verbally committing to Nebraska this week, according to OKHoops.com. Hammond, a 6-foot-10 forward who is expected to play his senior season of high school basketball at Comanche this winter, decommitted from OU at the end of last season, which he played at Sunrise Christian in Kansas. He also had an offer from Texas Tech. KEVIN DURANT'S STRENGTH COACH HOLDING CAMP AT DEL CITY The nationally renowned basketball strength and conditioning coach who has worked with Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant will be holding a camp in Del City this weekend. Alan Stein's Cutting Edge Camp, designed to improve basketball athleticism, will be held from noon-4 p.m. Saturday at Del City High School. The camp is open to boys and girls age 10 and up. Cost is $99. The camp offers exercises in quickness, agility, core strength and basketball-specific conditioning, among other things. Email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. LEXINGTON COACH JEFF HALL CONTINUES TO BUILD PROGRAM At the conclusion of the 2011 season, Lexington was 1-9 and had just 14 players. Coming into this season, the Class 2A Bulldogs now have 56 players. The turnaround can largely be attributed to coach Jeff Hall, who is now entering his second season as the Bulldogs head coach. “From 14 to 56 shows the kids have bought in,” Hall said. “They're comfortable around us, and they're now starting to put in extra work. Last year, our junior high bunch would show up on Sunday's (voluntarily) and go throw a football around. It's just the little things like that.” Hall improved the Bulldogs win total by six games last season, going 7-3. With nine returning starters, including standout receivers Jeron Hamm and Jake Blanchard, Lexington looks to continue the turnaround. “We've built a mutual respect with our kids by showing them we really care about them,” Hall said. “That's been the biggest thing. X's and O's are the same everywhere, but we try to connect with our kids on a personal level as much as we possibly can. I think that's been really important for us.”
Outlaws lose just five games over the summer. Run through state tournament with relative ease.
High school notebook: Outlaws headed to American Legion regionals
BY SCOTT WRIGHT AND JACOB UNRUH, Staff Writers | Aug 7, 2013The Oklahoma Outlaws won the American Legion state baseball tournament last week and open the American Legion regional on Thursday in Little Rock, Ark. Entering the state tournament, the Outlaws had lost just five games over the summer. Then they ran through the tournament with relative ease, beating their opponents by an average score of 17-4 over a four-game span. They were unable to play the championship game against the Southwest Shockers due to inclement weather. The Outlaws open the five-day regional at 9:30 a.m. against Tennessee. If they win the regional, they advance to the American Legion World Series in Shelby, N.C. The Outlaws won the World Series in 2010. HUGO LOSES FOOTBALL COACH With football practice set to begin Monday, Hugo is scrambling to find a football coach. Terry Shamley handed in his resignation on Monday, according to a report from KXII-TV. No reason was given for his resignation. BERRYHILL'S SMITH COMMITS TO TULSA Tulsa landed its ninth verbal commitment from the 2014 class and the sixth in-state prospect, adding Berryhill defensive end Jeremy Smith on Tuesday. Smith, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound senior, also had an offer from Memphis. Of the Golden Hurricanes' nine commits, Smith is the first purely defensive player. Tulsa McLain's Nigel Carter was recruited as an athlete, but could likely wind up at receiver. LOCALS HONORED AT NUC CAMP Two metro-area football players were award winners at the recent National Underclassmen Combine Ultimate 100 elite camp. Logan Price, a 6-foot-3, 204-pounder who will be a junior at Putnam City North this fall, was named the tight end MVP of this class. Edmond North junior Richard Morrison, 5-foot-10, 171 pounds, was named the wide receiver MVP for his class. FORMER OU COMMIT HAMMOND MOVES TO COMANCHE Jacob Hammond, a highly recruited 6-foot-11 basketball standout, will attend Comanche High School for his senior season, according to Internet reports. Hammond played for Duncan as a freshman and the OKC Storm as a sophomore. He verbally committed to Oklahoma before his junior year but decomitted near the end of the season, which he played at Sunrise Christian in Kansas. He was expected to play for the new Oklahoma City prep school, United Prep, for the upcoming year, until Tuesday's reports surfaced of his move to Comanche. In addition to OU, Hammond has offers from Texas Tech and Nebraska. REIMERS TAKES OVER AT BRIDGE CREEK Kirk Reimers had wanted to coach in a larger class. After years at Snyder, Moss and Amber-Pocasset, he is getting his chance. He was named Bridge Creek's girls basketball coach over the summer. “It's just a better fit,” Reimers said. “I hated to leave those girls over (at Amber-Pocasset), but then again I had the ambition to coach the bigger school. “I really like the prognosis from what I've got to see.” Reimers and his wife Jacque recently adopted a baby boy, which caused Reimers to decide he wants to focus on coaching just one sport. At previous schools, he coached multiple sports, including baseball and softball. They also live in Tuttle, and did so while coaching at Amber-Pocasset. The move to Bridge Creek allows them to remain in their current location. Bridge Creek returns a senior-laden team, Reimers said. “The girls are really starting to come along as far as understanding what I want and what I like, understand the tempo we're going to play and what we're going to try to do,” Reimer said. “I'm really excited about it. I'm anxious. I wish we were starting tomorrow.” BY SCOTT WRIGHT AND JACOB UNRUH
