Despite dealing with a nagging ankle injury, Oklahoma commit Alex Ross of Jenks, Okla./Jenks showed flashes of his special abilities Saturday night in his team’s 41-19 loss to Tulsa, Okla./Union.

“We did the best we could,” Ross said. “We will get better.”

In his first action of the season, Ross finished with 14 carries for 136 yards and one touchdown after missing the season opener due to an ankle injury. The senior dazzled the crowd with a 85-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, bursting through a huge hole up the middle and cruising untouched into the end zone. The play showed Ross’ surprising speed for a 6-foot-1, 205-pound running back, especially for a guy playing with a bum ankle.
