Which of these six rivalries from the Northeast region is the most heated? I consider these the best rivalries in the region. Which one did I vote for? I picked Claremore vs. Pryor. The Zebras and the Tigers can't stand each other, and a win in this rivalry is big, regardless of records. Is there one I missed? Don't hesitate to let me know.
Here are five football players to keep an eye on in 2016. These guys made a huge impact for their respective teams in 2015, and are looking to have even bigger seasons. This is not a ranking so this list is in no particular order. Hunter Hutchison – Verdigris: Hutchison plays running back for the Cardinals, and he had a solid year as a junior. Next year, as a senior, the Cardinals and coach Tony Daniels will rely heavily on the legs of Hutchison. In 2015, Hutchison racked up 1,472 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground. Brock Martin – Oologah: Martin is a terror on the defensive line for the Oologah Mustangs. Last season, Martin finished with 17 sacks to go along with his 96 tackles. His 17 sacks were close to the top of the leaderboards for the entire state. Martin will be their key playmaker next season. Expect him to add to his large number of sacks. BJ Bradbury – Adair: Bradbury was phenomenal this past season for the Class 2A champion Warriors. Bradbury completed a ridiculous percentage of his passes, finishing with 127 completions to 171 attempts. Those completions went for 2,083 yards and 36 touchdowns, while he only threw six interceptions. Bradbury missed some time with an injury as well, but the numbers wouldn’t show it. With Bradbury coming back, the Warriors are poised to repeat as champions. AJ Archambo – Bartlesville: Archambo broke onto the scene for the Bruins last season, finishing with 1,031 receiving yards and 15 receiving touchdowns. He was Colton Penrod’s favorite target last season. With a large chunk of players graduating, Archambo will be the key playmaker for the Bruins next season. Joe Quigley – Chouteau-Mazie: Quigley came on strong for the Wildcats last season, finishing with 114 tackles, 10 sacks and two fumble recoveries. Quigley is an impact player for the Wildcats coming into next year. He plays defensive line and linebacker, and is a key piece of the Wildcat defense. Quigley also anchors the Wildcat offensive line. Expect him to make a huge impact next season.
With our new websites launching, we decided to go back and look at our All-VYPE football lists. Here is the link for the Northeast area team: http://vype.com/neoklahoma/2016/02/23/excel-therapy-presents-neok-all-vype-football/ The question is: who would you guys pick as your Player of the Year from this team? We didn't pick one, but if I had to choose, I'll take the guy who just set the state record for passing yards in a career: Mason Fine. Fine heading to a Division I school was the icing on the cake. This may seem like the obvious pick, but it isn't. There are multiple talented players on that list that one could make a case for. Penrod at Bartlesville tore up Class 6A-II this season. Brock Martin, defensive lineman from Oologah, tore it up this season. BJ Bradbury from Adair is already my favorite for next year. He spent a good chunk of the year injured and still put up beast numbers. Fine's teammate Jason Pirtle had a tremendous season. That's just the tip of the iceberg. Let me know what you guys think.
Which basketball team from the Northeast area do you think has the best chance at capturing the gold ball? Head over to the NEOK site and cast your vote: http://vype.com/neoklahoma/. There are some teams I left off this list who have an outside shot. The Pryor Tigers definitely have potential to make a run. Same goes for the Salina Lady Wildcats, who are currently ranked No. 10. Let me know who you think I missed.
