Dodge City (Kan.) Community College three-star dual-threat quarterback Omar Haugabook played a key role in helping Dodge advance to the championship game of the Jayhawk Conference playoffs. The Conquistadors eventually lost to Coffeyville, but Haugabook had a good season, throwing for 2,261 yards and 20 touchdowns.
"I was pleased with everything, but it still doesn't feel good to lose that final game," Haugabook, who is 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, said.
"I would rather have a conference championship. They really ran the ball well against our defense and we couldn't get things going on offense. Our tempo was off, and we couldn't get it turned back around."
Haugabook, one of the top junior college quarterbacks available in this year's class says he's now on track to graduate in December. However, it seems that many schools aren't aware of that and haven't jumped on him as much as he probably should be.
"It's real slow now," Haugabook said. "I've been talking to a few schools, probably not as many as I should be. The only three that talk to me all the time are K-State, SMU and Ball State. I don't have any offers yet, though."
Haugabook said he's talked to K-State assistant Joe Bob Clements about an official visit.
"It's looks like I'm going up there on the 19th, but it's not 100 percent official," Haugabook said. "I like talking to coach Clements. He's a nice guy. He keeps in touch with me a lot."
