Justus sees off Comanche seniors

CACHE — After stepping down as the head coach of Comanche football during the offseason, coach Steve Justus enjoyed getting to spend some time with his final senior class at the Southwest Senior Bowl Saturday.

Justus led the Indians to back-to-back winning season in 2011 and 2012. His best season was in ’11 when Comanche reached the second round of the playoffs and finished 9-3.

Seniors Cody Crow, Chrisopher Tuttle and Hunter Rice played their parts in a 12-6 South win, and Justus couldn’t contain how proud he was of his players after the game.

“When we send our kids over here, we send the best of the best,” Justus said. “They have great attitudes, great work ethic and are great kids. They came out and performed well. They always represent our school well and I’m just proud to be associated with these guys.”

Crow started at right tackle for the South team. He and the rest of the offensive line dominated the game, as the South’s run game tore apart the North’s defense. Crow turned down football scholarship offers from Tulsa and UTEP in order to go to the University of Oklahoma for academics. Though the senior bowl was fun to be a part of, Crow said he remains resolute that it was his final football game.

“It’s hard to step away from the game like that,” Crow said. “Especially, this game is such a fun opportunity, but I’m still standing by that.”

Rice started at quarterback for the South. Because injuries riddled his final year as an Indian, it meant a lot for him to suit up for one final game. He was a little bit surprised, but nonetheless ecstatic that he got the opportunity to start.

“I thought some big school quarterback would come in and beat me out,” Rice said. “I got here, and I worked hard all week to get the starting position.”
