Oklahoma high school football: U.S. Grant's Stacyion Gay led the Generals to their first win of season with five TDs
U.S. Grant coach Alex Levescy was satisfied with his team's performance last week.
In the battle with Capitol Hill, the Generals were dominant in all facets of the game, winning 52-6 for their first win of the season.
U.S. Grant’s Stacyion Gay was a big reason why the Generals were so successful. The senior quarterback threw 11-for-28 for 145 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran for 40 yards and one touchdown.
“He’s been a hot commodity on our team this year,” Levescy said about his quarterback who threw touchdowns to multiple receivers. “He’s where it starts, he’s the one throwing the ball around, he’s making the right reads.”
It’s the kind of performance U.S. Grant (1-1) will need as they head into battle with rival Southeast (1-1) on Friday in the Southside Showdown.
Southeast features freshman running back Rodney Fields who helped lead Southeast to a 20-18 win over Classen SAS last Thursday. Southeast coach Kenneth Blair said it was the best running performance by a Spartan he had seen in years.
Levescy recognizes the newfound talent Southeast possesses and said it will likely be the deciding factor of the game.
“They are more athletic,” Levescy said about Southeast. “And if we don’t do what we’re coached to do, not making the right reads and filling the right gaps and making the right tackles and coming downhill when we’re supposed to, it could be a little different game.”
U.S. Grant leads the series 3-2 in the past five matchups after winning the last two. Southeast will look to break the streak and even the series on Friday.
