Wagoner: Kevin Peterson and Jeremy Applegate — Peterson (cornerback) and Applegate (linebacker) will both be most important to Wagoner's defense, which should be the team's strength. But both are also dangerous when they get the ball on offense.
Broken Bow: Eric Dockins and Cory Rahmings — Dockins is a major-college prospect at running back coming off a 1,400-yard season, while Rahmings is earning similar attention at defensive end after collecting 96 tackles last year.
Oologah: Sage Hamby and Sam Noble — Any coach will tell you that success starts with the linemen, and Oologah has a couple of impressive ones in Hamby and Noble.
Clinton: Jalee Rainge and Caleb Webb — Rainge has been waiting for his chance to shine as Clinton's No. 1 running back, and his life will be easier the more he runs behind the 280-pound Webb on the offensive line.
Piedmont: Cassius Calhoun and Collin Bricker — Bricker was one of 4A's top tacklers last year, and will also step in at QB this season. Calhoun is drawing college interest as a running back.
