Oklahoma high school football: Highlights, numbers and things we learned from Zero Week
Mask up or pause game?
Moore Public Schools has a simple mask policy: if you are in the stadium, you have to wear a mask at any event. During Westmoore's home game, the public address announcer had to remind the crowd on three separate occasions to put masks on or it could result in the game being stopped until everyone was complying with the policy. The game wasn't stopped, like one was in Utah last week, but that announcement is likely at other stadiums throughout the season.
Bixby extends state's longest winning streak
Braylin Presley is the state's next star. The junior running back at Bixby scored on a 69-yard run on the Class 6A-II No. 1 Spartans first play from scrimmage and added three more scores in their 34-0 win against Class 6A-I No. 4 Tulsa Union. Presley finished with 252 total yards as Bixby extended the state's longest 11-man winning streak to 26.
Muskogee star Williams sits against McGuinness
Muskogee senior quarterback and defensive back Ty Williams did not play in the Class 6A-II No. 4-ranked Roughers’ 20-13 loss at McGuinness on Friday night. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Oklahoma State commit was out with a hamstring injury. Williams had 62 tackles and nine interceptions last year. He also ran for 779 yards and eight touchdowns and threw for 1,455 yards and 13 scores.
Pawhuska's Drummond starts hot
Pawhuska senior quarterback Bryce Drummond completed 20-of-32 passes for 350 yards and five touchdowns as Class A No. 3 Pawhuska thrashed Perry 64-7. The North Texas commit also rushed for a score and helped the Huskies snap a three-game losing streak against Perry.
Owasso starts quickly, cruises against Edmond Santa Fe
Class 6A-I No. 1 Owasso scored on its first play from scrimmage and five of its eight plays in the first quarter resulted in touchdowns during its 48-21 win against No. 4 Edmond Santa Fe. The defending state champion Rams held junior Wolves standout wide receiver Talyn Shettron to three catches for 32 yards and a late touchdown.
Woods gets first win at Enid
Enid recorded its first win since 2018 under second-year coach Rashaun Woods after topping Madill 63-0. The Plainsmen were scheduled to play Putnam City to open the season, but Putnam City canceled the game over coronavirus concerns in Garfield County. Enid quickly began looking for a game against an opponent in the highest classification it could find. Madill's opener against Tishomingo was canceled, so the Class 6A-I Plainsmen and Class 3A Wildcats were able to schedule a game in Madill.
Tulsa Lincoln Christian stifles Beggs
The defending Class 3A state champions show no signs of slowing down. Class 3A No. 5 Tulsa Lincoln Christian dominated Class 2A No. 4 Beggs 36-8 behind a big performance from new quarterback Chase Hudson, who rushed for two touchdowns and threw another to Kolbe Katsis. Beggs star Kendal Daniels, who's No. 1 in The Oklahoman's Super 30, had a 41-yard reception early but was contained otherwise.
Davis guides Prague past Luther
Trip Davis rushed for two touchdowns and added a late passing score to seal Prague's 27-14 win against Luther. Davis scored on runs of 29 and 1 yard and completed a 32-yard touchdown to Peyton Ezell for the game's final score in the fourth quarter. Prague and Luther have each won three games against the other since 2015.
