    Bishop McGuinness is no stranger success having made and won at least one playoff game 10 of the last 14 years. This season, if the Irish hope to continue that success, they’ll have to do so with quite the youth movement. Bishop McGuinness will have 9 new starters on the offensive side of the ball. That includes not having one senior wide receiver. One mainstay from last years squad is running back Braden Roy. The senior ran for more than […]

    OSU Cowboys Wrap Up Fall Camp

    Oklahoma State wrapped up their fall camp Saturday with a 115 play scrimmage in the Sherman E. Smith Center. OSU head coach Mike Gundy said that the quarterbacks stole the show playing “the best they have in a scrimmage probably in a number of years here.” There’s still no word on who will start. That isn’t the best part though. The best part is that OSU managed to escape fall camp without any injuries. Offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich attributed that […]

    Courtney Paris Rebounds Her Career

    Courtney Paris spent her entire college career at Oklahoma being as dominant a player as we’ve seen in women’s college basketball. She was almost assured a double-double with points and rebounds every time she hit the floor. After being drafted to the WNBA, Paris hit a wall and played for 5 different teams, being cut by 2 of them, struggling to find her way. However, those struggles have built her into the dominant player she’s now becoming in the WNBA […]

    New Era Under Center for Santa Fe

    There’s a new signal caller at the helm for the Edmond Santa Fe Wolves. Keaton Torre takes over the reigns after current Oklahoma Sooners QB Justice Hansen headed to Norman. This isn’t a shocking move considering Torre, a junior, saw significant action last season while Hansen battled a hamstring injury. Torre is a highly touted recruit having already visited Louisville, Auburn, and TCU. He even has an offer from the Cardinals. He led the Wolves to a 6-5 season last […]

Now as the team attempts to make the next step towards the playoffs, Woods has called on his former OSU teammate and 9 year NFL veteran […]
