Shameless brag for my oldest boy.

He signed his NLI on 2/7 to play football @ Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee..


He had some D1 schools calling before he got hurt this season, but he is happy and says he feels OBU is where he is supposed to be...

Very proud of the young man..

Congrats to your whole family. DI, DII, DIII , or NAIA is big deal. Over 95% of kids hang them up forever at the end of their senior season. He should be very proud.

Both our kids went to OBU. Great school. He'll have a good time, LEARN A BUNCH, and develop some great relationships. Oh, and play a little ball too.

Congratulations all around.

Word of caution: Our son went there, and never came back home. He's an Okie now. It happens.

Good grief! The boy has excellent lateral movement, good footwork and balance and is quick with a determined drive for the goal line! He is going to do well if he stays healthy!

Did he play defense also? Just curious, I have 2 young boys growing up in Rockwall and the kids here are pretty much 1-way players by 9-10th grade, it's crazy to me, but looks like that's what's trending.

No defense..

In the bigger schools, not many players go both ways.


Low center of gravity for sure.. 5' 8" 195 lbs, 4.55 40 yard
