Claremore’s Cunningham set to sign with NSU

CLAREMORE — The moment Claremore High School senior linebacker Jordan Cunningham has waited for all his life will become official on Wednesday — National Signing Day.

Cunningham’s made his decision. Now it’s time to put the pen to the paper.

At noon on Wednesday, inside the Claremore High School Gym, Cunningham will sign a national letter of intent to play NCAA Division II football for the Northeastern State University Riverhawks.

The Class 5A All-State linebacker caps off a four-year high school career owning the school’s all-time record for tackles and leaves the Zebras’ football program as one of the most ‘fiercest’ hitters to step onto Lantow Field.

“It’s going to be hard to replace Jordan (Cunningham),” said Claremore head coach Rob Gilbreath in a previous Claremore Daily Progress article.

“He was the heart of our program, and our defense.”

Cunningham closed out his prep career with 460 tackles — including 194 (141 unassisted) as a senior.

At his outside linebacker position, Cunningham led a Zebra defense that held opponents to 11 points in 12 games this past season.

In 2011, Cunningham amassed 149 tackles and his first full season on the varsity in 2010, he had 136 — giving him 285 heading into his senior year.

“Jordan’s a big-time hitter,” Gilbreath said before the season. “He doesn’t say much on the field, but opponents definitely feel his presence out there.”
