Charles Page High School senior Colt Savage was named to the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large East All-State team Thursday. The 6'5" eldest son of Head Coach Eric Savage will continue his basketball career at the University of Central Oklahoma.

Savage led the Sandites in many statistical categories this past season, including: scoring, free throw percentage, defensive rebounding, and steals. He led the team in scoring on twenty occasions as the Sandites made the State Tournament for the first time since 1963.

Savage was second on the team in scoring as a freshman with 10.3 points per game. He led in seven different games and posted a season-high eighteen points against the Wichita Defenders.

As a sophomore Savage averaged 14.5 points per game, led on eight occasions, and scored a season-high 25 points against Nathan Hale. He was second in scoring overall. 

Savage was not only the leading scorer for the Sandites as a junior, but he was also the leading scorer for the entire Frontier Valley Conference with 22.5 points per game. He also averaged 6.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 1.1 steals, and led the team in nineteen games. He scored a season-high 34 points against Bixby.

Savage led his team in twenty games as a senior and averaged 20.6 points per game with a career-high 35 points against Redemption Life World Academy. He averaged 5.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists, and 1.6 steals, while shooting 50.2% on field goals, 25.6% on three-pointers, 62.6% on two-pointers, and 77.3% on free throws. 

The All-State game will be played July 26th at the Oral Roberts University Mabee Center, and will pit the top players from each side of the state. The game will reunite Savage with former teammate Brooks Haddock, who transferred from Sand Springs to Muskogee after his sophomore year. 

Haddock, who is signed with Oklahoma Wesleyan University, led the Sandites in scoring as a freshman and a sophomore. He averaged 12.6 points per game as a freshman, sixteen as a sophomore, 20.3 as a junior, and seventeen as a senior.
