Oklahoma Class 6A football: Shettron brothers shine in quarterfinal win over Westmoore
EDMOND — The Shettron name rang loud from the press box throughout Wolves Stadium on Friday night.
Five times it signaled a touchdown for Edmond Santa Fe. The other times featured plays that were likely added to one of the brother’s respective highlight reels.
Talyn and Tabry combined for five receiving touchdowns and 191 yards Friday to lead Edmond Santa Fe 56-22 over Westmoore in the 6A-I quarterfinals.
Despite their individual performances, the brothers only praised each other after the game.
“It’s crazy, he has so much potential,” Talyn said about his brother after the Wolves’ win. “We just need to keep getting him the ball and games like this will keep happening, we’re just going to keep winning.”
“I’m proud for him and all of his successes,” Tabry echoed. “I was glad I could join him tonight with all the touchdowns.”
Talyn, one of the top-ranked receivers in the 2022 recruiting class, finished the game with nine catches for 163 yards and two toe-dragging touchdowns. He is currently committed to Oklahoma.
Tabry, also a junior, put on a display of his own, finishing with four catches for 28 yards. After recording two touchdowns all season, he found the end zone on all but one catch Friday night.
Westmoore got out to a quick 14-7 lead early in the first quarter. Tabry had already barreled into the end zone, and Talyn had yet to find it. A quick first step got Talyn open, and a well-placed ball thrown by Scott Pfieffer found the junior receiver in time for him to drag both his feet inbounds in true NFL fashion.
From there it was all Santa Fe, as the Wolves scored 42 unanswered points to advance to a semifinal bout versus Tulsa Union.
After giving up two touchdowns and plenty of yardage in the first half, Colin Oliver and James Burnett helped the Wolves to stifle the Jaguars attack in the second half. Burnett finished the game with two sacks, a tackle for loss and a pass deflection.
Olliver, an Oklahoma State commit, remembered the halftime message well.
“Just stay in our game,” the senior said. “We had a good game plan coming in. We just had to adjust — from the last game we were doing the same stuff and they adjusted to it, so we had to adjust back.”
The Wolves adjusted well, as Westmoore finished with zero yards on six plays in the third quarter and scored their final touchdown with just seconds remaining in the ballgame.
Westmoore quarterback Dayton Wolfe finished the game 21-for-25 for 224 yards and three touchdowns.
Edmond Santa Fe’s Scott Pfieffer was not to be overlooked Friday night. The junior QB finished 12-for-14 for 174 passing yards and four touchdowns.
Angelo Rankin played the role of Swiss Army Knife for the Wolves, earning a passing, rushing and receiving touchdown, as well as manning the punting and kick return duties to near perfection. He tore down the sidelines for a 64-yard rushing touchdown with 27 seconds left until halftime. Early in the fourth quarter, he lobbed a short pass to Tabry for a score.
After dropping their first two games of the season, the Wolves have now rattled off nine wins in a row. Their semifinal opponent, Union, is on a similar streak after dropping their first four games of the season.
