Southmoore coach to be honored Friday

MOORE — Southmoore football coach Jeff Brickman has been selected to receive the “Semper Fidelis Coaching Award” from the U.S. Marine Corps in conjunction with the Glazier Football Clinics for 2014. 

The award is given annually to high school football coaches who exemplify the Marines’ standard of excellence, which is integrity, responsibility, honesty, honor, courage, and commitment. Brickman is being honored for his dedication to his football players and his school community in providing aid to them after the May 20, 2013 tornado. 

Brickman took it upon himself to help those in need by working for several weeks to raise over $90,000.00 in cash and gift cards to give not only to the 22 Southmoore football players who lost their homes, but also to some 88 other families identified as suffering loss due to the devastation of the tornado. 

Brickman will receive this award and be recognized by his peers at the Glazier Football Clinic at 6:50 p.m. Friday in Tulsa.

MACU swept by the Coyotes 

 The Kansas Wesleyan University Coyotes rallied in the second game of a double-header to win 5-3 to sweep the Mid-America Christian University Lady Evangels today (Feb. 15) at Jack Allen Field.  The Coyotes took the opener 6-0.

Kelcie Wolf pitched a shut out in her first three innings of work for MACU. The Lady Coyotes then came through in the fourth when Skanderson started the inning with a double, which she later scored on by Moon’s hit to left center.

The Lady Coyotes took the 1-0 lead into the bottom of the fourth when the Lady Evangels broke through on a two-out single by Jackie Hilterbran and then a two run homer by Ashley Sanford put MACU on top 2-1. 

With The Lady Evangels ahead 2-1 heading into the sixth, it didn’t take long for the Coyotes to jump back on the board. A triple by Stephanie Patterson led off the inning off and she later scored on a sacrifice fly by Noelle Skanderson to right field, which tied the score 2-2. The Coyotes scored three more runs to take a 5-2 lead.
