Brickman getting good turnouts for initial signups for spring baseball
Fall may be just around the corner, but spring baseball has been the recent topic of discussion in Okeene. With the hiring of Reese Brickman, superintendent Mike Jinkens was hopeful to get baseball back at both the junior high and high school levels as early as 2019.
An Okeene-graduate of the Class of 2005, Brickman went to Oklahoma State, and after changing majors a few times, earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Science Education. His first job was teaching science and coaching football, baseball, and track at Putnam City High School in Oklahoma City, but after two years, he and his wife moved to Greenwood, South Carolina. Brickman, who is also currently an assistant coach on the Okeene High School football team, returned to his hometown with the idea that as long as young Whippets were willing to come out for the baseball team, his program would get started by his second semester on campus.
