Don't let Doollittle's Name Fool You

When looking around the state of Oklahoma in the class of 2011 it's clear there is big-play potential from Idabel to Guymon, highlight reel touchdowns from Altus to Miami. Perhaps no player better embodies that than Edmond Memorial budding star Kameron Doolittle.

"I also was at the Tulsa team camp and they said I have an offer afterwards. It was pretty cool, it was like a dream, I remember when I was little I always said that I wanted to play in college but when that happened it was just cool to know I'd have the chance.
