OBU Football Set For Spring Game

Posted: Updated:
SHAWNEE, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma Baptist culminates spring football practices Saturday with the Spring Game at 11 a.m. at Hurt Field.

The Bison were 3-8 last season and have added several new players, despite returning 10 starters on both sides of the ball.

The game Saturday will be the first competitive action for new offensive coordinator John Johnson as the teams have been divided into Green and White squads.

The White squad, coached by Johnson, includes both starting quarterbacks from last season Cale Grauer and Blake Woodard. It also has All-Conference tackled Zach Clark and most of last season's defensive backs rotation in Clint Wilson, D'Ante MeekingNic Shegog and Nelson Mederios.

The Green team, coached by defensive coordinator Paul Smith, features All-American defensive end Kimes Gilbert, defensive backs Eugene Estes and Erik Derrow, along with running back Jordan Barnes.

Several Bison standouts will miss the game with injury or track and field commitments, including Nyko Symonds (shoulder), Cody Miller (knee), Derek Serowski (hamstring), Remel Newton (back), Chandler Fayard (Achilles), Byron Gutierrez (shoulder), Bryson Beattie (knee) and Dakota Koster (hamstring). 

Additionally, several transfer students will be making their competitive debut for the Bison, including defensive back Sterling Dickens (Panhandle State), defensive back Mario Henderson (Cisco) and defensive lineman Joshua Bryant (Southern Arkansas).

Newcomer Boyea Lockett, a defensive back out of Illinois, will be sprinting with the track team in the Texas Tech Open.
