Agra cancels remainder of season due to lack of players

STILLWATER, Okla. — Instead of getting prepared for the Coyle Bluejackets, the Agra Bearcats are turning in equipment as their season is over. With not enough eligible players Agra was forced to cancel the rest of the 2013 season.

“My guys with concussions weren’t cleared and we only have five healthy bodies,” coach Enoch Jackson, who was in his first season said. “It would have taken us two or three more weeks to get healthy, so we went ahead and called it a season.”

In an effort to get enough players, Agra forfeited its previous two games against Woodland and Rejoice Christian. Those two weeks didn’t end up enough. Jackson said some of his players will move on to basketball while others start off season. He also said he hopes to have more players in 2014.

“We have about five eighth-graders,” Jackson said. “I’m going to have to do recruiting within the school to get more boys out. We will see how many we have when spring ball rolls around.”

The Bearcats only played two games this season and lost both — 50-0 to Sharon-Mutual on Sept. 13 and 22-20 against South Coffeyville on Sept. 20. Agra was supposed to open with Carney on Sept. 6 but that game was canceled as Carney also canceled its season for the same reason. The Bearcats were supposed to host Coyle on Friday. Bluejackets coach Shane Weathers said it will be a week off for his team.

“I tried to find a game but the schools turned me down,” Weathers said. “It will be a week off for us.”
