Cy Lewis Stallard will transfer to Oklahoma Baptist University to continue his college football career next fall, and former Ardmore High School standout Bradley Taylor has signed to play with the Bison. Stallard has been part of the football team at Baker University for two seasons after earning All-State honors at Cleveland High School under coach Dale Anderson. Stallard, a 5-11, 195-pound sophomore, was also All-District and a two-time state qualifier in powerlifting. He was a state medalist in the pole vault. At Baker, he was a President’s Honor Roll student and an education major. Stallard is the son of C.L. and Sandina Stallard. “I’m really excited to be a part of the renewal of football at OBU,” Stallard said. “God has provided me this opportunity and I will make the most of it. I have always had tremendous family support and playing close to home will allow them to be a part of this.” Taylor, the son of Darric and Thelesa Taylor, will be a junior for the Bison after two years of study at Murray State. He is majoring in youth ministry. The 6-3, 200-pound linebacker was in the top 10 percent of his class, a four-year class president and a member of the student council and National Honor Society at AHS. He opted to come to OBU because of the “great environment with a Christian atmosphere and very helpful coaches.” Note: Report provided by Ray Fink, OBU sports information director.
