Stephens County players shine at Senior Bowl

LAWTON — While the 2012 Southwest Senior Bowl was remembered for it’s numerous brawls on the field, the 2013 edition will be known for something completely opposite.

Due to numerous lightning delays in the area, the Southwest Senior Bowl was officially called with 10:19 left in the 3rd quarter, giving the North team the victory as a result of them leading 13-0 at the time of the cancellation.

Before the action was stopped, several players from Stephens County left their mark on the game, with most of them representing the North squad.

Duncan players Caleb Longest and Andrew Percy were making life difficult for the South team as Longest assisted on several tackles on the defensive end, while Percy made his point with strong hits as well.

Marlow was also represented by Rylan Skinner on the North team, with Central High’s Jarrett Sparks getting in on the action, also assisting on several tackles for the North team.

Ashton Wright represented the other Bronchos player who suited up for the North side.

However, the biggest impact of the night came from Comanche quarterback Kale Reed, who was also playing for the North.

With 3:19 left in the first quarter, Reed scrambled down the sidelines for a 5-yard touchdown run, the only touchdown scored by either team in the game.

“The coaches said we were calling a pass play,” Reed said. “They also told me to either throw it or go. I rolled out and no one was open, so I saw an edge and cut in. It was just about visualizing the attack and going for it once the opening was in view.”

Other players suiting up from Comanche on the North team were Alex Tuttle and David Alvarez.

Stephens County had one player on the South team, with Freddy Larsen from Empire playing on the red side of the field.

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
