Prep pigskin report

A weekly look inside high school football across the state.


They said it

“Our best days as a football program are ahead of us.” -- Sequoyah head coach Shane Richardson.

Games of the week

- Booker T. Washington at Broken Arrow: The winner here has a solid chance of meeting up with Union in the semifinals.

- Skiatook at Pryor: A come-from-behind victory over Bishop Kelley propelled Skiatook into the playoffs, and now the Bulldogs get to face Brennon Barth and Pryor’s high-powered running game.

- Del City at Carl Albert: Del City dealt Lawton MacArthur its only loss in district play, but the Eagles slipped all the way to third in 5A-1. Now tough first-round test awaits in at Carl Albert, which is roughly seven miles from Del City High School.

- Bishop McGuinness at Ardmore: McGuinness’ only two losses in district play were to Guthrie and Carl Albert, and Irish get a Ardmore team that lost to MacArthur last week.

- Fort Gibson at Wagoner: In 2011, Wagoner won the Class 4A state championship. That year the Bulldogs started the playoffs with a win over Fort Gibson in the first round. That’s a good omen.

- Sallisaw at Oologah: Sallisaw’s only two losses were to Greenwood (Ark.) and Poteau (4A-4 champion). Oologah’s three losses were to 4A No. 2 Wagoner and two 5A teams (Claremore and Collinsville). Basically, one solid team will have to bow out of the playoffs after only one game.

- Lincoln Christian at Stigler: Is three-headed monster of Micah Wilson, Justin Flewellen and Tim Schwoegler enough to get the Bulldogs past Stigler?

- Claremore-Sequoyah at Beggs: Daniel Moniz has returned as Claremore-Sequoyah’s quarterback, but now the Eagles will have to deal with Beggs’ pair of 1,000-yard rushers, Kerry Daniels and Lane Bouse.

- Cushing at Jones: The Tigers have suffered back-to-back losses and now have to venture out onto the road for the playoffs. The key will be getting Gage Stallworth back in high gear.

- Colcord at Nowata: The Ironmen’s offense has been in full throttle lately, but Colcord’s defense is allowing an average of 10 points a game.
