Young County represented in Oil Bowl Classic

Graham High School graduates Richard Forbes and Rachel Grimsley represented the Steers and Lady Blues for a final time Saturday night in the Maskat Shrine Annual Oil Bowl Classic. Forbes played on the West Texas All-Stars during the football game at Iowa Park.

Olney’s Luis Mario Marquez played on the East Texas All-Stars. Grimsley was a member of the West Texas All-Stars in the large school volleyball game at Rider High School. The 85th annual event took place at Iowa Park this year due to construction at Memorial Stadium in Wichita Falls.

A trick play by the East All-Stars for the game's first score set the tone for the rest of the evening. Henrietta graduate Baron Brown took the ball from fellow Henrietta graduate quarterback Braden Bell. The play ended with a 77-yard touchdown pass from Brown to Whitesboro’s Jake Hermes. The score was the first of four first-half touchdowns by the East, who took a 28-0 lead into halftime.
