High school football begins in Oklahoma

High school football is underway in Oklahoma. Teams were allowed to begin workouts on Tuesday, kicking off what promises to be another exciting season.

The Durant Lions stepped out onto the field for the first time since their first round playoff exit last season. Durant opened workouts with hopes of returning to the post-season in 2009. They return 8 starters on defense and received a quarterback transfer that may help bolster an offense that lost Max White to graduation.

The Ardmore Tigers also began workouts on Tuesday. Larry McBroom begins his 2nd season as head coach of the Tigers. After winning 7 state titles in Ada, McBroom's Tigers failed to reach the playoffs in 2008. The Tigers will aim at a post-season return in year two of the McBroom era.

Several other Texoma teams began workouts on Tuesday as well. The regular season begins on September 4th for many teams in Southern Oklahoma.

    Oh Anthony, spoken like a true bench warmer if you remember your team was playing their team not Daryn...I don't suppose we will see you playing any ball after your senior year eat a donut buh bye.

    I am from Copperas Cove Texas, ask Alves how he liked playing us, in every meeting with our small 5A club we shut down both playoff runs, one person doesnt make a team. McKinney Boyd learned that the hard way, and so will Durant.

    Qb Daryn Alves is gonna roll over Ardmore at the end of the season... watch and see. He's a stud!

    Tiger Fan, do a little research on Daryn Alves and I'm almost positive you'll change your mind. Shouldn't be so quick to judge!

    Well...I attended the Super Scrimage, in Ardmore, Oklahoma. Ardmore ran all over durant and "alves" was not a big thing?

    Durant has not been good in football in years. Hopefully this new QB will be an upgrade

    The new QB Daryn Alves, at Durant will be the best player that Durant has seen in a long time. He has 4000 rushing yards in texas 5a football. You are going to like him.
