Prep football starts next week

MOORE — With the summer months winding down, that is the signal for high school football to start kicking into gear. Even though it has turned into a year-round activity, the official start of the prep season in Oklahoma is Aug. 13.

But before Moore, Westmoore and Southmoore take the field for their first practice, they had to endure an offseason of physical training, conditioning and passing leagues.

“I was very pleased with summer workouts,” SaberCats coach Jeff Brickman said. “We had 94 players that had over 80 percent attendance this summer. We also had eight all time strength, speed, and agility records broken this summer. The last session of passing league against Norman North we completed 15 of 17 balls and our defense improved in each outing.”

The SaberCats, Lions and Jaguars will all three head into training camp with new quarterbacks. That made the offseason that much more important as far as getting acclimated to the offense.

Southmoore won’t take the field until 7 p.m. Tuesday, while both Westmoore and Moore are scheduled to practice early in the morning.

“We want to see them be on time, give great effort, respect others and lead by example,” Brickman said. “We want the mindset to be battle fatigue like its an opponent and to fully understand how important special teams are.”


The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association released the preliminary 2013-14 ADM. It is based on a school’s enrollment and determines which classification a school’s football teams will compete in.

With Class 6A being split into two divisions starting in 2014-15, this ADM gives coaches, administrators and fans a good idea where they will be next year.

Nothing changes for any of the schools in Moore or Norman. Moore, Westmoore, Southmoore, Norman and North will compete in 6A Division 1 with the big schools. They include Jenks and Union, which have won every 6A state title since 1997.

The 2014-15 football districts isn’t set to be announced until September.
