When naming Bixby's Loren Montgomery as the Tulsa World's All-State football 2019 Coach of the Year, Barry Lewis said it was an overdue honor.
"Montgomery, the 2016 All World winner, receives the World’s state honor for the first time, an award that he’s deserved for quite a while," Lewis writes. "He has led the Spartans to five 6AII state titles and six state finals in six years. But this was Bixby’s best team, routing all of its opponents until the title game, with the state’s most explosive offense. A 57-7 win over 6AI runner-up Jenks made a major statement. Bixby enters 2020 with the state’s longest winning streak in 11-man football — 25 games."
