Biggest week in Edmond football??
By Robert Przybylo
Think about it like this. When a game between Deer Creek (6-2, 4-1) and Altus (5-3, 4-1) is pushed to the back page, you know you have a pretty good week.
Edmond is the place to be Thursday and Friday. I don’t know which one I’m more geeked for, Edmond Santa Fe and Norman North on Thursday or a good ol’ fashioned Edlam battle between Memorial and North on Friday.
Deer Creek coach Grant Gower said he has no issues with being under the radar. “That’s the great thing about high school football. Every week, there are some huge games out there for people to see and be pumped about.”
Gower may even have to take a backseat in his own family. His brother, Andy, is the offensive coordinator at Purcell. The Dragons are coming off a huge win against Bethany last week and have a major showdown with Pauls Valley this week.
There are intriguing storylines for both games. If ESF can pull this off, you can pretty much pencil in a second-place finish. And as Del City fanatics have said, if the Eagles can continue their stellar run, all the sudden, NNorth is in quite the quandary.
For the T’Wolves, hey, chance to show some dominance. Make that statement heading into the playoffs.
It’s funny, but I think Tyler Tettleton needs to come up huge for NNorth to pull out this one. Beau Blankenship will be bottled up (but that doesn’t necessarily mean stopped).
