Can anyone unseat Union and Jenks?

Could someone finally break the Tulsa Union-Jenks stranglehold?

It's been 17 years since someone else won a state title in Class 6A. Broken Arrow came awfully close to breaking through last year with their first football title before Union came from behind to win yet again.

Many of Broken Arrow's playmakers return, but the Redskins are also stacked yet again.

It wouldn't be shocking if Broken Arrow won it, but it's hard to pick against Union and Jenks.

Can Edmond Santa Fe take another step?

The Wolves' 1-9 campaign in 2010 seems light years away after Santa Fe went 10-2 in Lance Manning's first year. The Wolves have plenty of big names returning, especially in QB Justice Hansen and DB Khari Harding.

Santa Fe enters the season as the favorite in District 6A-4. The Wolves figure to get a better playoff draw this year if they're able to win the district than they did last year, when they drew Jenks in the second round. Because of that, a deeper run is very probable.
