Brorsen Focused on Playoffs

Oklahoman Russell Brorsen hopes he can continue to put off a decision regarding his college of choice for the next few weeks.

Ideally until after December 4th, which is the scheduled date of the State Championship game, would work best as his team continues its run through the high school state playoffs.  Stillwater, 9-2 on the year, rolled it up on Muskogee High by a final score of 52-28 this past weekend.  Up next is a match up against Putnam City North on Saturday night (11/20).

Russell Brorsen is having a monster season much like his high school squad with 85 tackles, 11 sacks, and four forced fumbles from his defensive end position.

"Things have been going real well," said Brorsen.  "Hopefully, we can keep this run going because we're enjoying ourselves."

KU continues to recruit Brorsen, and he remains very interested in Mark Mangino's program.

"Kansas has been there the longest, and they are still my favorite,” said Brorsen.

Other colleges involved with Brorsen at this time include Tulsa, Navy, and Air Force who just offered last week.

"I watched the Texas game on T.V. and felt they (Kansas) should have won the game,” said Brorsen.  (Kansas lost 27-23 on a last minute TD by the Longhorns.)

After the contest Mangino spouted off about a highly controversial offensive pass interference call against Charles Gordon that negated a 3rd down conversion for KU with less than 2 minutes remaining.

Brorsen shares his thoughts on Mangino sticking up for his players:  "I don't think it's a bad thing.  They expect to win which is a good thing.  He was upset with a call because he felt like his team should have won the game."

Kansas defensive coordinator Bill Young continues to call Brorsen every week.  The defensive end plans on visiting KU, Tulsa, and possibly Air Force or Navy after his season concludes.  Brorsen intends on making a decision after completing his official visits this winter.
