Oklahoma high school football: Seth Wisby leading the way for Putnam City

Seth Wisby made a strong impression after Carter Whitson took over as Putnam City’s football coach in the offseason.

“One of the first few workouts, he kind of stood out as a kid that was a dynamic athlete,” Whitson said.

Wisby, a senior, spent most of his time last year as a wide receiver and defensive back, but Whitson moved him to tailback.

The switch has paid off.

Wisby has led Class 6A-I Putnam City to two straight wins, running for six touchdowns during that span. Last week, he had 18 carries for 203 yards as the Pirates beat Edmond Memorial 35-7.

“He’s had a phenomenal season so far,” Whitson said.

Putnam City, which finished 1-9 last year, will likely rely on Wisby to have another impressive performance this week. The Pirates will host Edmond North (0-2) on Friday.
