Meraz’s reps increase as senior

It’s a rough road, grinding through offseason workouts and practice with little to no promise of playing time, but senior defensive specialist Kassy Meraz made that commitment each year and reaped the benefits of her labor.

The first OSSAA coaches’ rankings for football districts were released Wednesday afternoon, and the Clinton football team was ranked second in District 4A-1’s poll.

Clinton looks to rebound at Elk

There’s little time for the Clinton football team to recuperate from its home loss to Weatherford last Friday, as it heads to its other I-40 rival, for a big-time district clash at 7 p.m. Friday night at Elk City.

Ron Segal of Clinton won this week’s S&D Drug football pick ‘ems contest.

Pleasant finds home at CHS

Senior transfer defensive tackle Raynen Pleasant quickly became a household name on the football field, when he started for the Weatherford Eagles in 2019, and he brought that same skillset to the Clinton Red Tornadoes this season.

Reds can’t match Eagles’ power

A 14-play, 81-yard, Weatherford scoring drive to open the second half put the game on ice, and even though the clock showed 4:32 to play in the third quarter, the Clinton football team’s comeback attempts came up short in a 14-0, home loss in Friday’s Custer County Conflict.
