Tulsa, Okla. – Tulsa Oilers Football, proud member of the IFL, announced that Tulsa native linebacker Tre Harvey will spend another year with the Oilers.
Harvey,made a massive impact on both sides of the ball. While primarily having responsibilities at linebacker, the dual-threat also rushed for 61 yards, fourth most on the team, and found the end zone on the ground three times, one of those being a game-winner against Iowa on April 22 in what was the franchise’s first victory. The timely playmaker recorded 79 receiving yards along with a touchdown reception on nine catches.
The surprise offensive talent locked games down on defense, contributing 66.5 tackles, coming in at second most on the roster, with 51 being solo. The defensive rover produced six pass breakups, one forced fumble, and two blocked kicks.
