Need proof of just how good he’s been? Simply ask somebody from Oklahoma.
After watching the senior quarterback shred their defense on the ground and through the air, the Sooners gushed about his performance last Saturday. Waters ran for 51 yards and a score, threw for 225 yards and two more touchdowns, and helped the No. 11 Wildcats to a 31-30 victory.

One word describes the running effort put in by the Randall girls and Canyon boys at the 2014 District 3-5A cross country meet Tuesday morning.
The current No. 1-ranked and defending state champion Randall Lady Raiders used a 1-2-4-7 finish scoring a measly 23 points — in cross country the lower the point total the better the score — easily claiming their third district title in a row.
Randall’s championship was highlighted by the individual effort of Erika DeWitt who won the gold medal covering the challenging 5K Thompson Park course at 19:00.05.

The Randall Lady Raiders traveled to Dumas expecting a battle and got one but escaped with a 20-25, 21-25, 25-19, 27-25, 15-13 win to remain undefeated in District 3-5A.
“It was an amazing game,” Randall coach Jason Culpepper said. “We made some unforced errors in games one and two that set us back. We came back in sets three in four. Set five we got it done. It started part way through sets three and four. We did a great job of blocking. Our back row made some plays.”
