Hockett shows versatility



Cleveland will be playing for USAO, in Chickasha, beginning this fall.

Late reporter: Collegiate athletics has become a year-round undertaking for so many young athletes, even for incoming freshmen, who frequently begin their course work and conditioning in the summer (or spring) after graduation.

That’s not the case for Norman North’s Bri Kuestersteffen, who won’t report to Alabama-Birmingham until Aug. 5, with practice beginning the next day. As for the conditioning …

“They’ve given us a 55-page workout program and I’ve been doing that,” she said, before offering some sarcasm. “That’s really fun.”

Also, on hand to support Hockett, NHS football and tennis player, Max Gillett, headed to William and Mary to play tight end, won’t report for his Tribe football duties until Aug. 1.

He should know: The list of great soccer players at Norman North is a long one. Cory Albertson, Will Smith, Russ Coleman, Jack Coleman are just a part of it. But who’s the best? 

Who better than the man who brought soccer to Norman so many years ago to settle it.

Gordon Drummond was simply watching the back and forth of the first half of the boys game when it came out of his mouth. The subject was Mauro Cichero.

“He’s the best high school soccer player I’ve ever seen,” Drummond said.
