7-On-7 Area Football Action In Victoria
The first 7-on-7 football high school event in Victoria this summer, happening Tuesday night.
I was at Memorial Stadium, along with Max Preps All-America Jordan Whittington of Cuero, checking out the action involving East, West, the Gobblers, El Campo and Calhoun. First the Mean Green vs. the Sandcrabs. Cuero’s Michael Barta, with the touchdown pass to Jared Sauer. The Ricebirds vs. the Warriors. Lynn Osina of El Campo to Cade DuBroc, nice juggling catch there. The Warriors get on the board. Jordan Fillmore, rolls out, hits Donovan Harris in the end zone. Cuero is hosting a 7-on-7 state qualifying tournament this Saturday.
Oklahoma football coach Lincoln Riley said he’s excited quarterback Kyler Murray will remain with the Sooners in the fall, despite the Oakland A’s drafting the outfielder ninth in the Major League Baseball Draft on Monday.
Riley congratulated Murray in a statement Tuesday and said he’s “looking forward to getting him back around our team this summer.” Riley said the two had previously discussed Murray’s baseball prospects and he expected Murray to stay at Oklahoma.
Murray said Monday night that he told the A’s he will put baseball off.
Murray backed up Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield last season. He completed 18 of 21 passes for 359 yards and three touchdowns and ran 14 times for 142 yards. He started against West Virginia and played the first series after Mayfield was benched for sideline antics against Kansas the previous week. He competed with Austin Kendall in the spring.Former Tennessee quarterback Quinten Dormady has transferred to Houston, where he will be eligible to play this season
Dormady played in 16 games and made five starts in three seasons with the Volunteers. He began last season as Tennessee’s starting quarterback before a shoulder injury and surgery cut short his season.
He passed for 925 yards and six touchdowns in 2017. Dormady, who is from Boerne, Texas, just outside San Antonio, joins a team that seems to have a starter in junior D’Eriq King but no experienced depth.
Redshirt freshman Bryson Smith and 2018 signee Clayton Tune have no snaps in a college game.
King, a former wide receiver, started the final four games if last season and threw for 1,260, seven touchdowns and two interceptions.
