**For Immediate Release**
Aggies Lose in Season Finale, 49-17

Goodwell, OK – In their final game of the season, the Oklahoma Panhandle State Aggies lost to Truman State, 49-17, here on Saturday. Truman held a 28-10 lead at the half.

There were many high points for the Aggies, and several came from their All-American defensive back, Jeborric Evans. In addition to a solid defensive game (11 tackles), Evans was “Very Special” on special teams. The 6’0, 200-pound senior made an acrobatic block of a Truman field goal attempt and later came very close to taking a kick-off “to the house.” The pack caught up with him after he’d traveled 58 yards, but on the way, he delivered a straight arm that decked a Truman player. Another time, a Truman runner challenged Evans straight up and was body slammed to the turf.

Hershel Alfred, an All-Independent Football Alliance selection last year, was devastating from his defensive end spot. The junior had six tackles on the day, including FOUR quarterback sacks.

Another senior, Jeff Cornwell, hauled in four Brandon Warner passes for 65 yards, one a nifty 25-yard touchdown. The always dependable Aggie running back, David Daniels, pounded out 107 yards in 14 carries, including a touchdown.

Linebackers Ranoaldo Davis and Clifford Dean each had 12 tackles and Leon Paul made a great interception for OPSU (1-10 on the season). Shane Black also had a nice 24-yard punt return.

After the game, Aggie head coach Kyle Davis said he saw a great many positive things. He praised the hard working Daniels (a junior) and cited freshman quarterback Brandon Warner for his courage and talent. Both Daniels and Warner will cause more trouble for opposing teams next season.

Davis also cited the hard work and improvement of 240-pound center James Wallace, a 6’4” freshman from Canyon, Texas.

The game was sponsored by Epic Touch and eleven Aggie seniors led the team onto the field prior to the opening kick-off and were introduced to the crowd. The hardworking student athletes honored were James Stephens, Black, Jeff Holman, Lonnie Long, Evans, Dean, William Hackney, Austin Hawkins, Jared Burris, Cornwell and Gary Hendricks.
