1. Vian (13-2): The Wolverines have unfinished business after losing in last year’s state football final.

2. Jones (10-2): With star junior Carson May at quarterback, Jones will likely have one of the best offenses in Class 2A.

3. Millwood (9-3): The Falcons have explosive playmakers and will try to stay healthy after battling injuries last year.

4. Beggs (11-3): The Golden Demons made it to the 2019 state semifinals and have several key players returning, including senior defensive back and Texas A&M commit Kendal Daniels and junior running back CJ Brown, a four-star prospect.

5. Eufaula (10-2): The Ironheads’ offense will be tough to stop if senior quarterback Nick Jones and senior running back Noah Alexander, an Army commit, are hitting on all cylinders.

6. Adair (11-2): The Warriors had an exceptional offense last season, scoring at least 44 points in nine games.

7. Tulsa Cascia Hall (7-4): The Commandos are experienced and have the state’s longest active streak of playoff appearances (33).

8. Tulsa Metro Christian (15-0): The defending champion lost star quarterback Asher Link but has another talented roster.

9. Washington (12-1): The Warriors will try to get past the quarterfinals for the first time since making an appearance in the 2017 state championship game.

10. Lindsay (10-3): The Leopards have experienced defensive players who helped them hold three opponents scoreless last year.

11. Spiro (8-3): The Bulldogs’ defense was dominant last year, posting five shutouts.

12. Sperry (12-1): The Pirates have a reliable quarterback in junior Carson Hendrix and a solid offensive line.

13. Chisholm (9-3): The Longhorns finished with a perfect district record last year and allowed 14 or fewer points in nine games.

14. Meeker (8-4): Look for the Bulldogs to rely heavily on Caden Wolford, who has run for 3,057 yards and 48 touchdowns during his three years in high school.

15. Idabel (6-5): The Warriors are aiming for another playoff season as they move down from Class 3A.
