Barry Sanders Has Put Recruiting On Hold

Heritage Hall standout and U.S. Army All-American running back Barry J. Sanders helped his Chargers dispense of previously unbeaten Seminole on Friday with three touchdowns, two on the ground rushing and then another with a pick six.

"Yes, I got one on defense and took it all the way back," said Sanders. "That was fun."

Sanders and Heritage Hall continue to roll and will play in the Class 3A semifinals on Friday night in Stillwater against Tulsa's Cascia Hall. The last battle of the Halls was for a state championship back in 2007.

"I was in the stands, that was my eighth grade year," said Sanders, remembering that game. "I'm really looking forward to it and I am really glad they moved it to Friday night. It was supposed to be on Saturday and they came to their senses and moved it. I was really scared they were going to play it Saturday."

Sanders' reference was to Bedlam being on Saturday. "Yes, I am going to be there and like I said, I'm glad they moved our game to Friday." As for recruiting, Sanders said there is nothing new as Oklahoma State, Alabama, Florida State and Stanford continue to be in the mix for the speedy running back.

"I haven't taken any visits since the playoffs started and that is the way I had it planned out," said Sanders. "I'm looking forward to the season being over and then I will move on to making my decision. When we get to that point it will be crunch time."

Sanders has repeatedly said he would like to make his college choice public with an announcement during the Jan. 7 U.S. Army All-American Game which will be played in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, and televised nationally on NBC.
