by Aggie Sports on 04/13/06

Goodwell, Okla. - Oklahoma Panhandle State University’s head football coach Kyle Davis has released the names of 19 more players who will suit up for the Aggies this fall. According to Davis, the additions bring the list to 75 commitments from new players for Aggie football in the fall of 2006.

The latest to announce their intentions to be Aggies are:

MARIO WOKOCHA is a talented player from Youngstown, Oklahoma. The 6’0”, 170-pounder will add depth to the OPSU defensive backfield.

COREY NICHOLS, (6’0, 275) should make an immediate contribution to the Aggie “O Line.” A very strong player and excellent pass blocker, Nichols hails from Lubbock, Texas.

ANTHONY ORTIZ, at 6’3 and 310 pounds, had a great high school career in Alvin, Texas and with his size, should push for a starting offensive line spot right away.

MEKELLE WEBB, a fullback from Forney, Texas, will challenge at the fullback spot. Webb rushed for over 800 yards as a high school senior.

LARRY THOMPSON, at 6’0 and 220 pounds, has great feet and overall football speed. The Oklahoma City native, who played for U.S. Grant High School, can play on either side of the line.

TEL WALDEN, standing 6’2 and weighing in at 230, was three-year starter in high school. Out of Vega, Texas, he should contribute immediately to the OPSU defensive line.

COLBY WESTBROOK, another Vega High School player, is also an outstanding prospect. At 5’8, 175 pounds, the talented young man will begin as a defensive back after starting on both sides of the ball in high school.

JUSTIN O’BRIEN, another student athlete from Vega, will challenge at running back. At 6’1, 185 he has good speed, and is a versatile football player.

OAKLEY MUNSON, out of Highland High School in Salt Lake City, Utah, is a 5’10, 170-pounder who should make an immediate impact in the defensive backfield. Munson is also an excellent student.

CHAD SAUCEDA is a top prospect at wide receiver. Standing 5’9 and weighing in at 160, Sauceda prepped at Lubbock (Texas) Coronado, and has excellent hands and good blocking ability.

JONATHAN JACKSON, a 6’1, 215-pound linebacker, is big and fast. Harrison prepped at Harrison High School in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

PHILIP GARCIA is a fine quarterback prospect from the junior college ranks in Vermillion, South Dakota. An agile athlete, the 6’0 and 170-pounder also has a good throwing arm and can go deep.

FELIX REYES, out of Boise City, will challenge for time at fullback. At 5’10 and 212 pounds, Reyes is a physical runner who was also his high school’s team captain.

PATRICK HARALSON, a three-year starter at Turpin High School, brings immediate talent as a defensive end. He stands 6’2 and tips the scales at 235.

AARON SHEFFER hails from Canadian, Texas and should do well at the college level as an offensive lineman. At 6’0 and 265, he’s a strong “O Line” candidate who can also handle the duties as a long snapper.

VICTOR PEREZ comes out of Moore, Oklahoma and brings outstanding speed to the OPSU defensive backfield. At 5’6 and 155 pounds, Perez brings speed and heart to the Aggie program.

DARRYL GAINES comes out of Norman (OK) North High School and will challenge at running back. A talented young runner, Gaines is 5’8 and 150 pounds and could be an impact player right away.

ADAM GATES, a three-year starter at quarterback for Harrison High in Colorado Springs, is an excellent option QB. Standing an even six feet tall and weighing in at 190, Gates has the tools to make a great contribution to the Aggies.

BEN LANE, a 6’0, 215 pound linebacker, joins the Aggies from the fine program at Alvin, Texas. He’s a rugged inside linebacker who looks to see plenty of action.
