The Oklahoma Defenders were an expansion team for the CPIFL's inaugural season. Quarterbacks combined for 1,724 yards, 29 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. Rico Watkins did the best of those that played the position, though he only played five games for the team. Patrick Jones led all wide receivers with 14 scores and 765 yards on 62 catches. KingJack Washington led all rushers with an impressive 562 yards and 12 touchdowns. The team won two contests over the Kansas Koyotes and once in a narrow 36-34 decision against Mid-Missouri. The Defenders returned in 2014 and went 4-8 on the regular season. Zach Rasmussen, Bo Bartik, and May Brady all split time at quarterback, combining to throw for nearly 2,300 yards, 51 touchdowns and 24 picks. Isaiah Anderson and Patrick Jones were easily the top receivers, combining for 31 scores and 1,492 yards on 127 grabs. The Defenders defense only picked eight passes vs the 24 thrown by Oklahoma passers. After an opening week 72-6 win over Kansas, the defense would become a bigger problem, allowing 58 points per game. Oklahoma would be the only victory for the Kansas Koyotes, 75-63, in what was an incredible turnaround from the opening week meeting.
