On October 16, 2009 three Northwestern Oklahoma State University football players paid visit to Lincoln Elementary School to have lunch with Max Parsons, son of Terri and Don Parsons, as Max was selected as the “Ranger for the Day”, which took place on Saturday, October 17 as the Rangers played host to No. 8 Langston University.
The Alva Parent-Teacher Organization held a silent auction at the PTO Fun Night. Max and his parents were the high bidder in the silent auction. For winning the auction, Max was able to spend part of the day with the Rangers prior to the Northwestern-Langston football game.
On Friday, Lantz Mathers (right), Dimecus Brown (center) and Kyle Jech (right), visited and met the students in Max’s class and had lunch with Max. During this time, they took pictures with Max and talked football. Max also received an autograph football from the Ranger team.
During Saturday, Max, along with his dad and brother, had a tour of the new Ranger Field House and met Athletic Director Bob Battisti. After the tour, Max was hosted by JaRod Jackson and visited the Ranger Locker Room, took part in pre-game warm ups and then watched the game as the Rangers upset No. 8 Langston 28-21.
