That included Addison Staggs, who signed with Central Oklahoma. Staggs was a playmaking safety for the Jaguars this past year and looks to do the same for the Bronchos.
Staggs’ older sister, Jade, went through the same process when she was at Westmoore. She signed with the Oklahoma State golf team three years ago and now is a member of the Sooner golf program.
“It’s a big moment in my life,” Addison Staggs said. “Seeing my sister sign three years ago, I was always wanting to work to that point. And it’s finally here. It’s a great feeling. UCO was close to home for me. I am a big family man. I wanted to stay close to home. I think I can do a lot of good at the UCO program.”
Moore High had one football player sign on the dotted line on signing day. Ethan Birdwell will be attending Bethel College in Newton, KS.
Across town Southmoore held its signing day festivities Feb. 6 with 10 letters of the intent signing for football, which was the most in the state. Most of its athletes had already made it known where they will be attending college. That included Jackson Stallings, who signed with Yale, and the state’s top recruit D.J. Ward, who is already enrolled at Oklahoma.
Ward was unable to play his entire senior season after transferring from Lawton in the summer. But he still enters OU as the top ranked player in their class.
“I am glad it’s done,” Ward said. “I am back to low status and just ready to play football again.”
Nick Ward was the last of the SaberCats to make his decision and he chose Wofford University in South Carolina over Air Force.
“I made my final decision yesterday actually, the day before signing day,” Ward said. “I was talking to both coaches and decided Wofford would be the place for me. It was between Wofford and Air Force. I just felt like Wofford would be a better decision for me. I felt like I fit in better there.”
