Several solid football players in the Stillwater Area

STILLWATER, Okla. — The 2013 football season saw four teams advance to the state football playoffs with the Morrison Wildcats advancing to the state quarterfinals and being the only school to win a district title. Last season was sad as Carney and Agra were unable to finish the season due to injuries. There were several key athletes that helped their teams win games.

First Team


Quarterback: Jordan Quinata, Morrison

Quinata produced the most with his legs as he gained 1,119 yards and scored 26 touchdowns. Through the air, the sophomore completed 75 passes for 990 yards and nine touchdowns.

Running back: Gage Stallworth, Cushing

Rushing for 2,000 yards is a monumental achievement in the NFL and it’s no different in high school. Stallworth rushed for 2,183 yards and scored 40 rushing touchdowns.

Running back: Scott VanDorn, Morrison

Coach Cory Bales said VanDorn saved his best for last — gaining 1,894 yards on 97 carries and scored 21 touchdowns. The senior also converted seven 2-point conversions and was the MVP of District 7-A.

Wide receiver: Brandon Prather, Stillwater

Very few teams passed the ball in the area. Prather had a solid season catching the ball for the Pioneers with 46 catches for 506 yards and four touchdowns. The senior averaged 11 yards per reception.

Wide receiver: Laine Noble, Coyle

Noble was quarterback Ryan Weathers’ favorite target as he caught 22 passes for 443 yards and scored six touchdowns. Noble’s contributions helped the Bluejackets reach the playoffs for a third straight season.

Tight End: John Sasser, Perkins-Tryon

Sasser mostly blocked for the run-dominant Demons but made the most of his opportunities in the passing game. The senior caught 20 passes for 256 yards.

Offensive line: Diesen Gorham, Perkins-Tryon

Gorham was one of the blockers that opened holes for Jacob Peyton, Tyler Taff and Shelby Reese. The senior will continue his career in college.

Offensive line: Shelby Tallman, Cushing

Tallman helped Stallworth eclipse 2,000 yards rushing and also protected first-year quarterback Ian Jones.

Offensive line: Austin Hunsinger, Morrison

Hunsinger helped open holes for Quinata and VanDorn and helped the Wildcats reach the state quarter finals.

Offensive line: Ben Scott, Coyle

Scott helped the Bluejackets’ offense put up many points against their opponents in an 8-2 campaign that yielded a playoff berth.

Offensive line: Kelby Wickline, Stillwater

Wickline did his part in keeping opposing defenders out of the backfield and earned a scholarship to UTSA.
