Oklahoma high school football: Anadarko runs past Perkins-Tryon

PERKINS – Lucas Camp just kept running.

Anadarko's sophomore running back received the ball from his quarterback and darted up the left sideline time and time again. He didn't break any long runs, but he didn't need to. Camp just kept running the same play over and over. 

In fact, he ran the ball nine straight times on Class 3A 10th-ranked Anadarko's penultimate drive, which resulted in the final touchdown in its 18-7 win at No. 7 Perkins-Tryon on Friday at McIlvain Field. Camp, who is the backup running back, rushed 27 times for 77 yards and one touchdown, but his ability to carry it consistently is something that stood out to coach Kent Jackson.

"We want to run the ball," Jackson said. "In years past, we probably haven't been this diverse. It was really nice on that last drive to be able to stick it in."

Anadarko (3-1, 1-0 District 3A-1) rushed for only 95 yards, but its constant attacking style helped keep its defense on the sideline while punishing Perkins-Tryon's defense.

Anadarko had the only score in the first half, with quarterback Karsen Williams finding Raheim givens for a 35-yard score up the seam. Perkins-Tryon (2-2, 0-1) has two turnovers in the first half and wasn't able to get in a rhythm because of penalties. 

Perkins-Tryon quarterback Austin Mages hurt his left arm late in the fourth quarter while playing defense. He finished with 169 passing yards and found Gannon McCutchen from 13 yards out for the Demons only score.

McCutchen had 55 receiving yards on three catches while senior Teegan Shepard finished with four receptions for 52 yards. 

Perkins-Tryon took the lead on its third-quarter score, but Anadarko responded when Williams found Blayke Brower from 9 yards out for the winning score. Perkins-Tryon took the ensuing drive to the red zone, but a block in the back penalty and an Anadarko sack forced Perkins-Tryon to punt.

Then Anadarko went on its long scoring drive, Camp running the ball over and over.

"This was a game that was circled," Jackson said. "There's four really good teams in this district. For us to steal one on the road, it's huge."
