EDMOND, Okla. (Aug. 1, 2014) – One of Oklahoma’s finest track and field athletes soon will wear an Oklahoma Christian uniform.

Landon Huslig, a three-time Class 5A state champion as a senior at Deer Creek High School in Edmond, has signed a letter of intent to compete collegiately at Oklahoma Christian, OC coach Randy Heath said Friday.

Huslig, who was named as The Oklahoman’s Big All-City track and field athlete of the year, will compete in hurdle events and on 4x100-meter and 4x400-meter relay teams for OC.

“We’re excited that Landon will be joining the Eagles,” Heath said. “Landon will be able to contribute immediately for us.”

At the Class 5A meet, Huslig won the 300-meter hurdles in 37.76 seconds and ran the second leg on Deer Creek’s 4x100 relay team and the anchor leg on the Antlers’ 4x400 relay team, both of which also won event titles. He was a key reason Deer Creek took its third straight 5A team title.

Huslig also appeared to have won the state title in the 110-meter hurdles in 14.35 seconds, but he hit the last hurdle and it fell into the lane of another runner, impeding that runner. Huslig was disqualified after the race.
