Oil Bowl comes to an end

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Coaches Association announced on Monday that its 67-year participation in the annual Oil Bowl high school All-Star football game has ended.

The game pitted seniors from Oklahoma against seniors from Texas and took place in Wichita Falls, Texas, every year since 1946 with the exception of 1961. Proceeds from the game were divided evenly between the OCA and the Wichita Falls Shrine chapter.

However, last year the Shrine chapter, without written notice, delegated all proceeds to its own charities, a move the OCA said breached the agreement. The OCA further said until all monies were reallocated back to OCA, the Oklahoma athletes would not return to the event.
