CHICKASHA —

For his career at USAO, Byars has earned a record of 30-5-4 with 20 shutouts to his name. He is just one shutout away from tying assistant coach Alexis Vizarelis’ record for career shutouts. He is tied for third with Ryan Mcentee in career wins.

Byars was named SAC Defensive Player of the Week twice this season and was named All-Conference First Team last year.

He is a physical education and business management sophomore and is the son of Danny and Pauline Byars of Oklahoma City.



Coach Jimmy Hampton

Hampton led the Drovers to another regular-season SAC title and has coached the Drover men to seven conference tournament championships in 15 seasons.

On the men’s side alone, Hampton has a career record of 194-77-14, earning him a spot as the 20th Active Winningest Coach in the NAIA.

He has led the Drovers to four straight NAIA National Tournaments and took the Drovers to the NAIA Quarterfinals in 2010 and 2011.

In addition to his duties with both the men’s and women’s soccer teams at USAO, he is the director of the Oklahoma Football Club. He is one of just a few coaches in the southwest with a national “A” coaching licenses from the United States Soccer Federation.



Phil Pryor

In his third season at USAO, Pryor was named All-Conference First Team.

As a defender, he has helped the Drovers through three of their best seasons in school history, keeping the shot count low.

Pryor has had two assists in his career at USAO, including one on the game-winning goal in the NAIA National Tournament last season to send the Drovers to the NAIA Quarterfinals for the second year in a row.

Pryor is a physical education and business junior from High Wycombe, England, and the son of Tony and Hiliary Pryor.
