Hi, my name is Roy. I am 15 years old and I am pretty new at Boys Ranch Town. Iâve been here for about a month and a half. I am originally from Oklahoma City and I have two sisters. If I had to describe my family, I think I am a pretty lucky guy because I come from a loving and a caring family. My grandparents raised me and my sisters. We are grateful for them caring for us.

The Oklahoma Panhandle State Aggies stuck to their game plan and did what they set out to do against West Texas A & M on Wednesday, but it wasnât near enough to stop the surging Buffs.
OPSU kept West Texas from beating them inside the paint, forcing them to take shots from the perimeter. West Texas obliged, going 8-for-18 from long range, while their smothering defense did the rest as they topped the Visiting Aggies, 68-45.
The Guymon freshmen boys fell behind early Tuesday but battled into the lead by halftime before burying Liberal in the fourth quarter in a 46-35 victory.
Kassius Urquiza tallied a team-high 13 points for Guymon, which trailed 9-6 at the end of the first quarter but pushed out to a 21-16 lead by halftime.
Liberal cut the margin to 35-33 by the end of the third quarter before the Tigers limited them to just two points in the fourth.
The Hardesty Lady Bison jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, routing Keyes, 33-8 on Tuesday on the road.
Alyssa De La O scored six of her game-high 10 points in the first quarter as she helped push the Lady Bison to a 9-2 lead. By halftime Hardesty led 17-6.
Jazmin Barriga totaled nine points for the Lady Bison, while Larissa Fielder had seven and Natasha Colpetzer added three points. Caitlyn Gilbert and Dollinda Witten each chipped in with two points.
KEYES 52, HARDESTY 37
With 3 seconds left, Guymon coach Tyler Chapman looked at the clock, shook his head and asked aloud, âAre you serious?â
After hitting just one of their first 11 3-point attempts, the visiting Liberal Redskins went 3-for-3 in the final 30 seconds, during which time they rallied from a five-point deficit to take their first lead of the second half on a 3-pointer with 3 seconds left, topping Guymon 61-60 on Tuesday night.
