Sequoyah Football Players Earn District Honors 

As the Sequoyah Indians football team heads into the post-season play-offs, many of its players are doing so with honors.  Six members of the team have been chosen as All-District players, and two of them as players of the year. 

“All-District is an honor voted on by the teams in 3A-7,” said Shane Richardson, Sequoyah Indians’ head football coach.

Senior Nolan Philipott was named offensive lineman of the year and senior Tiron RattlingGourd was named outside linebacker of the year. Teammates and fellow seniors Zach Parish, Tanner Crow, Hunter Crow and Will Tiger added to the team’s honorees as All-District players,  

“I'm happy for these guys,” Richardson said.  “They worked hard and it is great to see them recognized.”

Philpott, 19, of Tahlequah, is the son of Craig and Waynita Philpott.  He plays lineman for the football team and is also a member of the wrestling and powerlifting teams. 

RattlingGourd, 18, of Tahlequah, is the son of Kerri Gourd.  In addition to playing football, he also plays baseball and is on the powerlifting team. 

Parish, 18, of Tahlequah, is the son of Simon and Rebecca Parish.  He plays quarterback for the Indians and is a starting member of both the basketball and baseball teams.  Parish recently signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Northeastern State University. 

Tanner and Hunter Crow, both 19, of Park Hill, are the twin sons of Ronnie and Stacy Crow.  The brothers have played football together since the third grade.  Tanner Crow, who plays Linebacker was ranked 8th in the state in tackles earlier in the season.  

Tiger, 19, of Park Hill, is the son of Shannon Tiger.  He plays in the receiver position and also enjoys wrestling and baseball. 

The Indians begin their first round of district play-off competition this Friday against Roland at Roland.  The cheerleaders will prepare the crowd for the game with a pep assembly at 11:45 in the Sequoyah Schools’ Old Gym.
