Players to watch

Tahlequah: Kourt McMillan (WR).

- McMillan has 29 catches for 529 yards and six touchdowns this season. However, seven catches, 235 yards and three touchdown grabs came in the first week of the season against Fort Gibson. Against Collinsville, McMillan will have to deal with cornerback T.J. Johnson, who had a interception for a touchdown last week against Pryor.

Collinsville: Zane McElroy (QB).

- The Cardinals’ signal caller missed the majority of the regular season while recovering from an injury, but he has now rushed 63 times for 326 yards and eight touchdowns this season. Last week against Pryor, he threw a 42-yard touchdown pass to Dylan Cook and also ran for a 1-yard scoring run.

Looking ahead: Collinsville will compete in the first round of the 5A playoffs on Nov. 15. Tahlequah will have to wait until 2014 to play another game.
