Top storylines

Will Washington get over the hump? The Warriors have lost to Tulsa Metro Christian in the quarterfinals in two consecutive years and had a runner-up finish in 2017. They have a tough schedule but are one of the front-runners to contend for a state title.

Who will play quarterback for Millwood? The Falcons battled injuries last season and never seemed to have a quarterback who stayed healthy, but they still finished 9-3. Millwood had an open quarterback competition entering the first week of practices, and it will be interesting to see who will be the starter.

Players to watch

Carson May, QB, Jones: The junior was efficient last season, completing 66% of his passes for 2,129 yards and 20 touchdowns. The 6-foot-5, 205-pounder received a Division-I offer from Old Dominion in the spring.

Kobe Scott, WR, Washington: The 6-foot-3, 176-pound junior had a breakout sophomore season, catching 31 passes for 715 yards. He also played defensive back and finished with 35 tackles and five interceptions.

Caden Wolford, RB, Meeker: The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder will be a four-year starter. He has run for 3,057 yards and 48 touchdowns during his high school career.

Key games

Washington at Purcell, Week 4: The McClain County foes will battle for an early lead in the district standings.

Luther at Chisholm, Week 5: Both teams are looking to build off solid seasons and are expected to contend for a district title.

Millwood at Jones, Week 8: Jones has a high-powered offense, but Millwood has a long list of playmakers, too. This game will probably be a thriller.
