The high school baseball season is over for Sooner quarterback signee Rhett Bomar, and it ended with Rhett forced to just DH with a pulled hamstring.

"I really couldn't do anything else, so I was swinging from the heels hoping to hit it out," said Bomar. "I couldn't run a lick."

Bomar finished his season with a .425 average, 11 HRs and 36 RBIs, leaving him first in the area in homers and second in RBIs.

"I had a good season, but it was disappointing the end because we didn't make it out of the first round of the playoffs," said Bomar. "Now, I am just concentrating on getting healthy and reporting to OU. I am still going to report to OU on June 1st.

"My leg has already improved and I think by the time I get there I will be close to 100 percent. If I am not the trainers at OU are the best in college football so I can be at no better place to get my let to 100 percent than at OU."

So, Bomar is thinking only about football and he will be throwing the Sooner pigskin on June 1st.
