Coltyn Semmel, outgoing Woodward Boomer basketball Senior, signed his National Letter of Intent on Wednesday to play basketball at Oklahoma Panhandle State University.  He is the first Boomer basketball player to sign a National Letter of Intent to continue playing basketball in college this season. Coltyn garnered several accolades over his career as a Boomer star:

  • 2-Time All-Western Conference Selection
  • 2019-2020 Chisholm Wheat Capital All-Tournament Selection Team
  • 2019-2020 Jones Kiwanis Club Invitational All Tournament Selection
  • 4A All-State Team Selection
  • 2019-2020 Classic Bowl All-State Selection
  • Erick Tiscareno Award

He averaged 17.5 PPG in his Senior campaign and led the team in charges taken.  Semmel, a 6.0″ 190lb guard, was a prolific scorer as well as a magnificent defender.  He was not shy about taking charges and coined the nickname “the charger” his senior season, a nick name given to him by his mother Candace.  He was a 4-year varsity player and amassed 1,109 career points over his career as a Boomer.  Click the links below to hear interview with Coltyn and Coach Mark Laird.
