It's hardware galore as spring sports wind down. Michael and Ben dissect baseball, slowpitch softball, golf, track & soccer as teams and individuals enter the final weekend of competition for this athletic season.
Find out which performances this spring have impressed the guys the most, and listen in as they give props to the outstanding offensive performances at the slowpitch state tournaments that happened to close out the school year.
All that, plus some coaching moves to mention, including Justin Brown filling the shoes left by Larry Callison at Tahlequah Sequoyah. And also some football recruiting tidbits.
Thanks as always for listening.

Five generations of Koy Hughes’ family have graduated from Garber High School.
He didn’t want his son to break that tradition.
With that in mind, Hughes is leaving his post as head football and baseball coach at Waukomis High School to return to his alma mater.
Hughes will be an assistant football coach, serving as the defensive coordinator on Blake Lamle’s staff and take over for Lamle as the Wolverines’ head baseball coach.
“That’s where I’m from and it’s just an opportunity I couldn’t turn down,” Hughes said.
He’s served as the Chiefs’ baseball coach the last three years, during which time they compiled a 38-39 record. He was the head football coach in each of the past two seasons and guided Waukomis to a 10-12 mark while reaching the playoffs each year.
“To have the opportunity to go learn from Coach Lamle, someone who has won two state titles, was really big for me,” Hughes said. “This is something, if I want to be a head coach again, that will really benefit me down the line.”
Lamle came to Garber prior to the 2018 season after a five-year stint at Shattuck, the last two as a head coach. His 2017 team won the Class B title and he was the offensive coordinator on the 2015 title team.
“I’m very excited to welcome Coach Hughes back home,” Garber superintendent Will Jones said. “This is a huge hire for our athletic program. He brings great experience as a head football and head baseball coach, and more than anything, the bleeds maroon and gray. He takes great pride in being a Wolverine and is going to come in here and grind and work for Garber.”
Hughes graduated from Garber in 1999 and played on the 1998 Class B state championship football team.
Hughes was also on some successful Garber baseball teams.
“Garber had a really good run in baseball in the 80s and 90s and I’d really like to help get us back there,” Hughes said.

Halloween candy is fantastic and why exactly are these “fun sized” portions so awesome?
I believe the answer lies somewhere in the combination between quantity and variety, where someone can sample and indulge in all their favorites.
Maybe because it only happens once a year in late October?
As a child, Halloween meant trick or treating for hours and loading up a paper grocery sack full of Halloween candy, most of which was eaten before bedtime.
Some of the candy ended up in the freezer for school lunches and daily snacking until all that would be left were Tootsie Rolls, Almond Joys and Mounds because those three are terrible
I’m sorry if you like those but I do not!
If you saw Mississippi State Head Football Coach Mike Leach’s post-game interview last Saturday, he really hates candy corn!
I agree and think most people also hate candy corn except Adam Diesselhorst, whose birthday just so happens to be on Halloween.
