EHS football All-District, All-State announced

Six Enid players have been recognized for individual honors on the 6A-3 All-District Team, including Most Valuable Player Austin Box.

Box set 12 offensive school records in his high school career and led Enid to a 9-5 record and a berth in the Class 6A state championship game this season.

In the final season of his record-breaking career at Enid, Box rushed for 1,086 yards and 15 touchdowns and passed for 1,938 yards and 13 scores.

Justin Glenn was named Outstanding Running Back, and Colton Chelf shared the honor for Outstanding Wide Receiver.

Glenn rushed for 716 yards and 10 touchdowns, while Chelf caught 41 passes for 773 yards and seven touchdowns.

Kody Cooke and Tulsa Union’s Matt Romine were the co-Outstanding Offensive Linemen.

Enid’s kicking game was honored. Levi Coon was named Outstanding Kicker, and Matt Athey was named Outstanding Punter.

Coon made 43 of 50 conversion kicks and 6 of 8 field goals for 61 points. Athey punted for a 31-yard average.

Enid coach Tom Cobble shared Coach of the Year with Tulsa Union’s Kevin Wright.

Eight other Enid players were named to the all-district team. Only seniors were eligible for consideration.

Box, Chelf selected for OCA All-State football game

Enid standouts Austin Box and Colton Chelf have been selected for the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State football game.

Box was selected on the West team as a defensive back, and Chelf was picked as a wide receiver.

The team, which is selected by a panel of coaches, includes a maximum of two players from any one team. That rule likely kept several Enid players off the team, including offensive lineman Kody Cooke.

Only seniors were eligible for consideration.

Okeene quarterback Brady Wardlaw and wide receiver Drew Westfahl also were selected on the West team.

The team includes players from all classifications, even 8-man schools.
