Saying farewell to Lawton

Green takes over as sports editor in Claremore

I didn’t know what to think about Lawton when I moved here in May 2017.

Living in the Oklahoma City area for most of life, the only things I heard about Southwest Oklahoma’s largest city were mainly negative. Even when I told friends where I was heading after graduating from Oklahoma State, they gave me a puzzled look.

None of them understood why I would move to what Lawton outsiders essentially considered the crime capitol of the state.

“It’s called the Shady 580 for a reason,” they’d tell me.
