Early tests continue for WW

marie@pvdemocrat.com — The tests for the No. 5 team in Class A continue this week as they travel to Velma to face the tradition rich Comets.

Coach Greg Gothard is in his 25th year as they head man at Velma-Alma. The Comets got a big win over Comanche in week one 32-6 while Wynnewood couldn’t overcome the potent Sulphur offense in a 36-22 loss.

Coach Gothard has six players returning on both sides of the football.

“Velma graduated two really good players last year,” head coach Brad Osteen said. “A lot of things centered around those two kids.

“This year to me they are a unit. They are playing well, playing physical, playing together. I think they are a good solid football team.”

Up front is where the Comet offense starts with Creede Wright and Chris Lockwood returning in the trenches. “Both are strong and determined,” Gothard said.

Ty Richardson will be back under center after missing half of last year with a broke leg. The junior has the ability to get up and down the field with his feet and makes good decisions in the offense. He threw for 78 yards in last week’s win.

He has some inexperience behind him in sophomores Evan Albertson and Sarian Smith. They have different running styles one is a steady hard-nosed runner and the other is a home run threat every time he touches the ball. Smith had 125 yards rushing against Comanche last week.

To get back on the winning track coach Osteen was to see “Wynnewood Football the way we play it.”

“I want to see us getting back to the old ways getting excited, getting crazy, running to the football and striking people.”

Wynnewood and Velma will kick off at 7:30 p.m. in Velma.
