Gaylor settling in to new job with Jags

NORMAN — It didn’t take Westmoore’s new skipper long to get into the groove of his new job. After being officially approved by the Moore Schools Board of Directors as the Jaguars’ head football coach, Adam Gaylor can be found at the school three times a week, despite still living in Broken Arrow.

Gaylor has been an assistant coach for Broken Arrow High the past seven seasons, where he rose to the defensive coordinator title. His name had been thrown around for several top coaching jobs in the state, including Lawton Eisenhower, where some considered him a front-runner.

But when Billy Langford resigned as Westmoore’s coach after the 2013 season, the cards seemed to fall into place for Gaylor.

Gaylor takes over a team that lost in the Class 6A semifinals to eventual state champion Jenks.

Broken Arrow finished 10-3 last season with a loss to Tulsa Union in the state semifinals.

All-conference hoops: The Mid-State girls all-conference teams were released and it features several area players.

Norman North’s Bri Kuestersteffen got the biggest award as she was named the conference’s MVP. The senior helped lead the Timberwolves to a spot in the state tournament and a top 10 ranking much of the season.

Norman High’s Taylor Ely took Offensive Player of the Year, while Bethany Franks was named the Newcomer of the Year.

Despite missing 11 games with an injury to her elbow, Southmoore’s Serethia Hawkins garnered Defensive Player of the Year. Westmoore’s Kaci Richardson took the Super Sophomore award.

The Jaguars’ Andrea Guziec shared Coach of the Year honors with Midwest City’s Art Bode.

Norman North’s Haley Woodard joins Kuestersteffen, Hawkins and Ely on the all-conference first team. Edmond Memorial’s Andee Decker and the Bombers’ Jasauen Beard also landed on the squad.
