Former Southmoore wide receivers reunite at OBU



Instead of going to Central Oklahoma, Serowski spent a month at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M before dropping out and going back home. In the spring he went back to UCO, then transferred to Colorado State.

After sitting out of football in 2010 and 2011, Serowski was set to get his gridiron career back up and going again with the Rams in 2012. Then he got news that would change his entire game plan.

“I had to grow up pretty quick,” Serowski said. “Wasn’t really expecting to have a wife and kid. We were engaged but the kid part kind of surprised us. We were in Colorado and I was playing at Colorado State. We got the news and we decided what was best to move back. Basically from there, it’s been all about them.”

Serowski transferred to OBU in 2012 and had to miss another year of football. When he finally hit the field this season, it looked like he never left it. The combination of him and Symonds have allowed the Bison to be a potent offense in the Southern Athletic Conference.

“It’s awesome,” Symonds said. “Derek is a great receiver. He’s 6-3, 200 pounds. Where as I’m 5-11, 175. He can stretch the field and he can tear defenses up. Whether its him, whether it’s me ... whoever is making plays, that’s what it’s all about. That’s the good thing about it, we have the backs and receivers to do it. I will always love Derek on the other side of me. It’s nice. The defense can’t just key in on one of us. They have to worry about us both.”

Jensen likes the other intangibles they bring to the team.

“They have both competed at the D1 level and know what it means to prepare,” Jensen said. “Their work ethic has helped set the tone for many of the other players in our program. I receive the most satisfaction in knowing that they are enjoying the game and the family atmosphere OBU provides.”
