Grant Sontag helps the offense go

(Continued)

McALESTER —

Now a senior, Sontag has started looking for ways to continue with athletics past graduation. He said he’d like to earn an athletic scholarship, his best being a baseball scholarship to a junior college like Eastern Oklahoma State College, and potential areas of study include sports management and physical therapy.

When not playing football or baseball, Sontag said he enjoys playing Ultimate Frisbee and his Service Learning class at McAlester High School.

But those activities take a back seat to football or baseball, and right now Sontag and the rest of the Buffs are focused on winning a state championship.

“It’s already Week 3, and it seems like just yesterday we were at Summer Pride,” Sontag said.

“We have a load of talent, but we also have a load of heart. A whole bunch of heart, a whole bunch of guts and a whole bunch of determination.”
