Pawhuska gets offensive
It's a good thing Pawhuska didn't score anymore or its scoreboard likely wouldn't have been able to handle the output.

Pawhuska (5-0, 2-0 District A-5) is averaging nearly 66 points per game with senior quarterback Bryce Drummond, a North Texas commit who completed 20-of-25 passes for 310 yards and seven touchdowns and had five rushes for 63 yards and a score, leading the way.

Owasso has won 18 straight games.
