Striving to be champions

Outlaws use summer ball for progress

MARLOW — It didn’t take long for head coach Jeff Brewer to get his Marlow Outlaws baseball team focused on next season.

Just a few short weeks after falling in the Class 3A State Semifinals to Vian, MHS was back on the field for summer league baseball.

Through 23 games the Outlaws won 13 of them in the Red River League, including a semi-final berth in the Red Dirt Postseason Tournament, along with strong finishes in the Kingfisher Tournament and Zorian Wood Bat Tournament.

MHS also managed to win games without multiple starters being available for the majority of the summer schedule including Beau Meshell who was out with a knee injury, and Seth Scarbrough.

“We’ve had 4-6 starters out every game during the summer,” Brewer said. “It’s hard to tell right now where we are. Our goal every year is to get to the championship and win it. When you expect to be there, winning comes second nature. Once we get some of our regulars back from injuries and other things, and you mix them in with these freshmen, we should be pretty good. We’ll probably start the season ranked in the top five.”

Among the young players that got to see playing time during the summer were Devin Crawford, Gage O’Neal, Preston Nunley, Kyle Seeley and Brandon Green.

Marlow will have to move forward though after two key pieces of this season’s team graduated in Tyler Brite and Wakely Bergner.

With starters Kelby Richardson, Trey Coffman, Logan Knox and Austin Forsythe returning along with multiple other players, hopes are very high for the Outlaws after winning 30 games last season and reaching their second consecutive state tournament.  

“Those players being there at the state tournament as sophomores and juniors is big,” Brewer said. “We’ve kept moving up every year, and it’s time to win it. Kelby and Trey are among the core guys we have. They’ve already got colleges looking at them, and we expect to meet those high expectations we have for ourselves next season.”

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.
