Ward, who has committed to play football at Oklahoma, did not attend practice Wednesday and was unavailable for a response. But late Wednesday night, he sent out several tweets on his twitter account that may have answered all questions.
So.. I'm not playing football this year," Ward posted. "I'm thinking about college. I'm tired of this I didn’t ask for it. "
Southmoore coach Jeff Brickman had no comment on the matter.
Injury doesn’t slow Painter: Despite broken ribs, Southmoore’s Tyler Painter made sure to have an impact in Friday’s win over Westmoore.
He came up with the biggest play of the night when he blocked the Jaguars’ extra point attempt at the end of the first overtime.
“I thought if they score, we need to use our timeout make sure our defense understands that the game is not over,” Southmoore coach Jeff Brickman said. “If we block this extra point, we’ll go into another overtime.
“We have a guy that’s playing with a broken rib named Tyler Painter. He’s playing through pain.”
Painter broke his ribs during practice earlier in the week, but found a way to slip through the Westmoore linemen to get his hands on the ball. After kick failed the SaberCats went on to win in the second overtime 33-27.
“I don’t even know if he took any pain medicine,” Brickman said. “He blocked that PAT against Carl Albert last week. So we told him to block another one for us.”
Jags face No. 7 North: Westmoore looks to get back on the winning track when it faces Norman North (2-0) at 7 p.m. Thursday at Moore Stadium. The Timberwolves are coming off a convincing but costly win over Del City last week.
During the NNH victory, the team suffered injuries to lineman Josh Been, who was caught in a pile-up on a rush down the middle. He went down hard and lay prone on the ground for several minutes. He will have surgery Thursday.
The Jaguars haven o major injuries, but they have to find a way to get past the crushing loss to Southmoore and prepare for one of the top teams in the state.
“The loss sticks with you until Friday,” Westmoore’s Jhames West said. “You are thinking about it until you get to beat somebody else. Once that happens, it will be all out of your system.”
