A Broken Arrow student honored for helping save the life of a Tigers coach and baseball announcer is one of four from the Tulsa area chosen to work as athletic training aids during the Oklahoma Coaches Association and All-State Camp, July 23-28.

Chance Holloway was one of several recognized by the Broken Arrow school board for their quick responses in helping save the life of BA assistant Rogers Green, who blacked out while announcing a baseball game between the Tigers and Booker T. Washington.

Holloway, who is CPR certified, found Green unresponsive in the press box and started performing chest compressions before BA certified trainers Daniel Steward and Taylor Coatsworth arrived, according to a Tulsa World article on the incident.

“Honestly, I wasn’t scared, “ Holloway told the World. “Maybe in the back of my mind. But I immediately thought of my training and began to look for signs.”

Others chosen to work the All-State camp from eastern Oklahoma were  Rejoice Christian’s Kalli Kemp, Bixby’s Francheska Vekas and Depew’s Cassidy Johnson.

From the West were Norman’s Christina Benge, Putnam North’s Madisyn Hensley, Clinton’s Jordan Ramirez and Edmond Deer Creek’s Chyanne Verble.

The student trainers will be under the direction of certified athletic trainers Aaron Harmon of Stillwater and Erin Ging of Putnam City North.
