OSU BOUND: Bixby’s Jordon Reagan is ready for another season on the gridiron. He has committed to OSU.

Bixby has emerged as a hotbed for Oklahoma State University football recruiting.
Former Spartans already on the Cowboys’ roster are defensive lineman Brendon Evers and offensive lineman Bryce Bray. Two more players will join them next year as Brennan Presley and Jordan Reagan, both defensive backs and wide receivers, recently made verbal commitments to OSU.
“I feel pretty happy about it,” Reagan said. “I feel like it was a good decision and I’ll continue to be happy about it when I finally go to OSU next year.”
Reagan, who stands at 6’2” and 180 pounds, liked the coaches when he made his visit to Stillwater.
“I felt like they cared for me a lot as a player and they cared for what was best for me and once I went there, that they would take care of me. (Cornerbacks) Coach (Tim) Duffie, I liked him a lot. OSU is also very close to where I live. It’s not too far and my parents will always be able to come to my games.”
There were never any other schools contending for the services of Reagan.
“OSU was pretty much at the forefront of my mind,” he said.
The competitive nature of the game is what this senior Spartan enjoys about football.
“It really tests you sometimes, especially at defensive back, you have to do things that might pull you out of your comfort zone and you always have to face adversity,” Reagan said. “You always have to adapt to situations. That’s what I like about it.”
In Bixby’s 2018 Class 6AII state championship season, Reagan forced 23 tackles, including four for losses, along with a pass breakup against Stillwater in the title game. As a receiver, he caught four passes for 58 yards and one touchdown.
Favorite NFL player of Reagan’s is Tre Flowers, who also played at OSU and is now with the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks.
“We have similar body types. I look up to him a little bit,” Reagan said.
What’s it like to be a two-way starter?
“I like it because it allows me to be in the mindset of the other side or at corner,” Reagan said. “I can get in the head of a receiver and may predict and see what could happen, or whether the tendency may be to do a certain route or play. So, it’s very helpful in that respect.”
Bixby has won four of five state championships since Class 6A split into two divisions in 2014. The one year it came up short of the title was just two seasons ago, when it finished runner-up. They bounced back last year.
“I think it meant a lot to our team to come back and win it after giving it up the previous year, because that didn’t sit well with everyone, especially our coaches and the team,” Reagan said. “I feel like we did it (won state) for our players who graduated the (previous) year and came up short. Every team wonders how good they will be when their seniors graduate since they have to come and do the same thing over the next year. We were able to prove that. Even with some players gone, we were able to adapt and still win.”
Reagan believes the team they beat in the state final will be good again in 2019.
“Stillwater will still be pretty tough,” he said. “They still have their defensive backs, who are really good and made up for a good game last year. I believe playing them again would be a good game.”
A dynasty is not what Reagan sees in the program’s run of success.
“Honestly, we are just like any other team that puts in the work,” he said. “It is our coaches who make the difference because they manage to always take new kids and shape them into good athletes. It feels good to have good coaches.”
