Oklahoma Sooners 2016 football commits push on in the state playoffs

In a buzzsaw week in the state playoffs, did any of OU's '16 pledges survive and advance?

Here is a quick look at how the Oklahoma Sooners' current field of 2016 commits and their teams performed this week:

Jon-Michael Terry , LB, Victory Christian School – All season long, Terry had played on both sides of the ball, but Victory Christian finally ran into something he couldn’t stop in the second round of the playoffs in a 54-21 loss to Roland, which has lost just one game all season. Roland scored 41 points in the first half.

Austin Kendall, QB, Cuthbertson High School – Kendall and Cuthbertson just needed a playoff bid to make a run. But against unbeaten and defending state champion Crest, Kendall, who threw two touchdown passes, couldn’t push his team to the next round of the playoffs, losing 31-21 against the defending state champs.

Logan Roberson, OL, Harrah High School – The run game just didn’t get going for Harrah on Friday night in a 54-28 loss to No. 2 ranked Poteau, which came into the game unbeaten. Harrah rushed for just 89 yards, and Poteau scored on its first six possessions of the game.

Chanse Sylvie, S, Calvary Baptist Academy – In a clash between the two-time defending state champion (Calvary Baptist) and a unbeaten team with a home-field advantage (Notre Dame), a third shot at the title fell by the wayside in a 28-7 loss for Sylvie and Calvary Baptist. After a touchdown drive early in the first quarter, Calvary Baptist could do nothing to slow down 28 unanswered points for third-ranked Notre Dame in the state quarterfinals.

Parrish Cobb, CB, La Vega High School – Undefeated La Vega is still undefeated and now headed to the regional quarterfinal with a 41-20 victory against Rockport-Fulton, which had won three straight games just to secure a playoff spot. Cobb hauled in four receptions for 88 yards, including a 70-yard strike on the final play of the first half. No other player had a reception on 10 combined attempts.

Pernell Jefferson, LB, Warren Easton – In a rematch of last year’s state semifinals, Warren Easton got a little vengeance on Plaquemine with a 37-20 victory. Easton is making its third-straight trip to the quarterfinals as Jefferson helped the defense hold Plaquemine to just 107 yards in the second half, when Easton broke open a tied game.

Jordan Parker, DB, Pittsburg High School – Parker leads his team looking for revenge in this second-round match-up against Monte Vista set for 7 p.m. Saturday in a rematch of an early-season 49-42 Pittsburg loss.
