Welcome to OklahomaSports.Net
We’re glad you took the time to stop by and hope that you’ll make it a regular visit. Our site was started in June 2011, is now in its seventh year online, and covers sports throughout the state of Oklahoma, as you might imagine by the name. We will keep you up to date on what is happening with our state’s collegiate and high school programs and we step into the professional realm occasionally as well.
You’ll get coverage of football, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, volleyball and more on this site. We like to take a personal approach and bring you more about sports than what you might just see on the surface. Sports involve people and we do our best to bring that to you.
With that in mind, we started the Podcast in 2013 and believe this extends our scope and brings you closer to the people and places of our great state.
Your feedback is always appreciated, so feel free to comment on our articles, posts and features. And let us know what is going on in the world of sports where you are.
