Deondre Clark and D.J. Ward, Douglass
The world will have to wait a little longer to see the Clark-Ward defensive line. Ward was sidelined Friday night awaiting final clearance from the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association. There aren't any eligibility issues expected, but the process hasn't been finalized yet.
Clark drew plenty of attention, working mostly against the right tackles for Guthrie and Tulsa Kelley, and handled it well. He also saw a few snaps at fullback, opening the door for Ward at tight end.
Bryan Dutton, Guthrie
There are no surprises for Guthrie coach Rafe Watkins as he watches his quarterback, Bryan Dutton. A talented player and fierce competitor, Dutton has been commanding the offense since he was a freshman. And Watkins likes what he sees as Dutton prepares for his senior season.
“He has become more of a leader, which is what we need from him,” the coach said. “He's tough as nails, as always. He wanted to tuck the ball and run a couple times, like he does, but we were gonna protect him. I thought he threw the ball exceptionally well.”
Tre Edwards, Southmoore
Edwards flashed his versatility, hurting opponents with both his arm and his legs during 20-minute sessions against Edmond North and Enid.
His biggest play was a 40-plus-yard run that set up Southmoore to take a 6-0 lead on Edmond North early in their session.
