Basks earns Tulsa World All-Metro honors

Zebra kickoff returner named to 2nd team

CLAREMORE — Claremore junior kickoff returner Dustin Basks proved to be a ‘game-changer’ for 11 weeks of the 2013 high school football season.

Basks (5-9, 160) capped off his impressive year with 13 kickoff returns for 474 yards and three touchdowns as well as seven punt returns for 257 yards and two touchdowns. He accounted for 1,844 all-purpose yards, earning the Zebra play-maker second-team recognition on the Tulsa World All-Metro Football Team.

In the Class 5A playoff game at Shawnee, Basks returned a punt 93 yards for a touchdown.

The talented speedster averaged 36.46 yards on kickoff returns and 36.71 yards on punt returns.

Along with Basks, a pair of Rogers County offensive linemen — Catoosa’s Wyatt Pennington and Oologah’s Tyler Base — received first-team Tulsa World All-Metro Football honors.

Pennington and Base help power Catoosa’s and Oologah’s running games  deep into the Class 4A state playoffs.
