Lawton defensive end Sunny Puletasi hasn’t had much football experience. A Samoan, Puletasi didn’t even play football until about three years ago, when his father was stationed at Fort Sill.
Since, Puletasi has turned into one of the best defensive linemen around and has orally committed to Wyoming. "He’s a good player and just as good a kid,” Lawton coach Randy Breeze said. "He’s a quiet kid but a hard worker and very coachable.” Bigger programs have started expressing interest in the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder, but Puletasi has said he would remain committed to the Cowboys.
Mustang likely to play two QBsThe quarterback battle at Mustang between senior Jacinto Biorato and sophomore Brandon Taylor likely will extend into Friday night’s rivalry game against Yukon. Both have been efficient in running the Broncos’ up-tempo passing attack in the preseason in trying to fill the void of Kyle Webster, who led Mustang to its first undefeated regular season last year. Biorato, because of seniority, will likely start, but the 6-2, 200-pound Taylor could see considerable playing time as well. "They’re both each other’s biggest fan,” Mustang coach Ty Prestidge said.
