ANADARKO — Senior running back Sheldon Wilson rushed for 199 yards and four touchdown on 21 carries Friday night to lead Anadarko past Tuttle 49-0 in a Class 3A district football game.
Anadarko handed tradition-rich Tuttle it's worst loss since 1993, when Kingfisher beat the Tigers 50-0. Wilson had a huge part in Friday night's rout — just like he has in other games this season. Wilson entered Friday night's game as the state's leading rusher with more than 1,600 yards.
“We knew what he had to do when we came out here,” Wilson said. “We got a good team going into the playoffs. I think it's going to be good.”
On Senior Night at Warrior Field, Wilson and his teammates racked up 408 yards offense. Tuttle managed just 30 yards and committed four turnovers, all interceptions.
“(Anadarko) fired on all cylinders,” Tuttle coach Phillip Koons said after his club fell to 6-2 overall and 3-2 in district. “We've had the shoe on the other foot before, and now it's reversed.”
Wilson opened the scoring with a 59-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. But five penalties for minus-45 yards in the first quarter stalled Anadarko's offense for the most part.
