We’re 10 weeks deep into the high school football season, which means OSU recruits have just one regular season game left. Some are poised to make deep playoff runs while others will wrap up their high school football experiences next weekend. Regardless, here’s how week 10 went!
Side note: plenty of commits made their way to Stillwater for America’s Greatest Homecoming Celebration; that will be noted for each commit below.
Garret Rangel, Quarterback
Rangel made it up to Stillwater on Saturday night and probably got a sense of deja vu. He led Frisco (TX) Lone Star to a 49-6 win against The Colony, out-gaining the Cougars 515-119. Then Rangel watched OSU thrash Kansas 55-3, out-gaining the Jayhawks 535-143.
The comparison doesn’t stop there. Rangel completed 14 of his 19 passes for 176 yards and three scores. Meanwhile Sanders tossed two touchdowns and 157 yards on 12-of-19. Rangel beat The Colony on Friday night and watched his future school run that same performance back on Saturday.
Rangel and Lone Star take on defending state champs Denton Ryan in a battle of teams that own 8-1 records, both 7-0 in district play.
Ollie Gordon, Running Back
Euless (TX) Trinity is known for producing great running backs, and Ollie Gordon might seriously be the best of the bunch. Gordon leads Texas class 6A in rushing yards and touchdowns after another masterful performance on Friday night.
Gordon got just 11 touches for the entire game. That’s it. His 11 carries went for 222 yards and three scores and Trinity routed Haltom 42-0. Now, one could argue that Gordon has been the beneficiary of playing in one of the easiest districts in Texas. Averaging nearly 200 yards a night is impressive regardless.
Gordon has now tallied 1,766 yards and 26 touchdowns for the season. Trinity (8-1, 6-0) wraps up the regular season at 2-7 Paschal next week and will face the whoever wins out of a complicated Keller ISD tiebreaker in round one.
Talyn Shettron, Wide Receiver
Tabry Shettron, Tight End
Edmond (OK) Santa Fe ended a two-game losing skid with a 34-25 win against Enid last week in which the Shettron brothers were fantastic once again.
Each continued a games-long streak of catching a touchdown pass. Tabry’s only catch went for two yards and a touchdown as a reliable red zone target. Talyn went for 126 yards and a score on nine catches. Santa Fe didn’t need to throw the ball quite as much as normal because freshman Demarius Robinson carried 24 times for 200 yards and two scores to carry the bulk of the Santa Fe offense.
The Wolves are now 5-4 and wrap up the season at home on Friday against Norman. Both Shettron brothers watched OSU Homecoming as the Cowboys roped Kansas on Saturday night.
