Fool me once, twice, ah, not a third time
By Robert Przybylo
No excuses, Shawnee simply has me baffled right now. The biggest thing I’m not remembering is that Tucker Brown adds two dimensions to the Wolves’ team.
No, not rushing and passing. With Brown at QB, it allows Brett Davis to really shine at his most natural position: wide receiver.
With opponents tracking down Brown and the underrated Jon Wright at running back, Shawnee is going to be able to tire down defenses with WRs like Davis and Forrest Reed.
Two statement-making wins has Shawnee back in the 5A rankings, but no time to breathe for Brown and Co.
Up next is a battle at No. 5 Bixby. Who is going to bend first? The Spartans have only given up 30 points all season (27 in a week 1 loss to Jenks) while Shawnee has racked up 78 points in the last two weeks.
One thing that worked in Shawnee’s favor was that Brown’s first two games back were at home, but the teams it faced were anything but cupcakes.
A certain swagger comes with having Brown back, and it’s a swagger the Wolves will combine with execution to move to 3-2.
The pick: Shawnee 28, Bixby 16.
Jenks over Owasso
Putnam City over Westmoore
Duncan over Western Heights
Shawnee over Bixby
Sequoyah-Claremore over Berryhill
Perkins over Alva
Morrison over Christian Heritage
Edmond Santa Fe over PCNorth
Edmond Memorial over Midwest City (game of the week)
Weatherford over Douglass
