Thanks to our fine friends at OERB, Jerry and Geoff were able to continue their small town adventures across the state. Their first visit of the year was to the 3A Marlow Outlaws.
Marlow is located in Stephens County, southwest of the metro and due south of Chickasha. According to the 2010 Census the town was just under a population of 5,000. The town is steeped in local pride and spirit, as well as having a few famous people come from its ranks. Former Minnesota Viking Terry Brown was once an Outlaw, as was Joe Dial – a 2011 Pole Vault Hall of Fame inductee and once world record holder. Paul Sparks of Boardwalk Empire fame is also from this small town.
None of this is what makes Marlow special, however.
That comes from the towns people who are committed to making the community a better place a day at a time. From the district supertintendent George Koffman to the head football coach Jeremy Gage, everyone is in it to better the lives of the school’s children.
Local spot Giuseppe’s is some of the finest Italian food you will find in the area. Eat your heart out, Olive Garden.
Just across the street you can get your haircut. Want to grab some tasty fro-yo after? You can walk right there. This place has the necessities locked down.
In the first half of the game the Outlaws took advantage of a depleted Bethany Broncho’s team. The gritty effort kept them close as they headed to the locker rooms only down 7-0. The Bronchos, however, were too much for the Outlaws to overcome. That did not keep the town and its fine people from standing behind their boys until the final whistle.
If ever you’re to swing through this small town, be sure to stop and take in a place like this.
