Sequoyah Football Player Named All-Star
Sequoyah senior Nolan Philpott was recently named a 3A All-Star football player by the Oklahoma Coaches Association for his outstanding performance during the 2014 football season. He is the first Sequoyah football player to be named an All-Star since 2012.
“Nolan Philpott is a very good football player,” said Shane Richardson, Sequoyah Schools’ head football coach. “I'm happy that he was recognized for his play. But, more importantly, in order to get this honor, student-athletes must excel off of the field as well.”
Each class selects an All-Star team consisting of the best 26 senior football players in the East and West divisions. Then, All-State teams are selected from those All-Star players.
“Nolan did a great job for our team this year on both offense and defense,” said Marcus Crittenden, Sequoyah Schools’ athletic director. “He also does well in the classroom and is a good role model for our younger students. He deserves this elite level of recognition.”
Philpott, 19, of Tahlequah, is the son of Craig and Waynita Philpott. He was also named the 3A-7 offensive lineman of the year, Muskogee Phoenix All-State and was an honorable mention All-State player for both the Tulsa World and the Daily Oklahoman.
