The Central Oklahoma Football League is no more for the little leaguers’ of Guthrie, but with change comes more positives for the local gridiron teams.
Guthrie will now participate in the Deep Fork Valley football league and join the likes of Bethel, Blanchard, Chandler, Choctaw, Nicoma Park, Harrah, Jones, Luther, McLoud, Meeker, Newcastle, Noble, Perkins, Prague, Seminole and Tecumseh.
In addition to the new competition, the DFV fields a second grade team (Might Mights) to go with the third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade teams. Each grade will participate their fellow grade competition.
“We can now field a second grade team and first graders are allowed to play with them,” organizer Steve Hannah said. ‘They will have a few different rules than the other grades, but we are pleased that we can now field a second grade team.”
Hannah further commented that a lot of parents and coaches will be happy to be kids their own age.
“This will help that the kids to get to play with each other from the second grade all the way up to Junior High.”
Guthrie will play half their schedule at home and half on the road with all the home games being played at the High School practice field as years past.
