High school football: Newcastle’s Cox, Jordan aim to outdo each other  

Newcastle’s Jake Cox and Teagun Jordan have developed a healthy rivalry with each other.

“They kind of have a battle going back and forth,” Newcastle coach Jeff Brickman said.

The Racers (2-2) defeated Clinton 28-21 last Thursday.

Cox returned a kickoff for a touchdown and caught a 78-yard score in the upset win. Clinton (2-2) entered the contest as the third-ranked team in Class 4A.

Cox’s performance was similar to Jordan’s impressive game against Blanchard on Sept. 19. Jordan returned two kickoffs for scores and had a 48-yard receiving touchdown to help the Racers earn their first victory of the season.

The eighth-ranked Racers are scheduled to play at Anadarko on Friday.
