He spoke of losing his best friend and his father. He spoke of the benefits of athletics. He spoke of God and trying to walk in His footsteps. He spoke of the importance of being a good teammate. Oklahoma Felloship of Christian Athletes Director John Odell gave the Redskins lots to think about Monday night during Liberal’s football banquet. “You seniors who graduated thank you for the commitment and sacrifice you have given,” Odell said Monday night in the LHS cafeteria. “You underclassmen, you have the opportunity to continue to live your dream. I want you to simply say this and I want you to put it in your heart. If you can believe it, you can achieve it.”
The LHS coaches then introduced all of their players based on position. Head coach Wade Standley took time to speak several minutes about each of his seniors to conclude the banquet. KSCB”s Brock Kappelmann was the M.C. for the event.
