Kersey/Przybylo Point-Counterpoint Class 6A, MVPs, Coach of the Year
By Robert Przybylo and Jason Kersey
You may know us as The Stooges, but here we’re going to offer “our brilliant insight” on every class. Let’s not waste time.
Robert: To 6A we go, have you had a chance to see the Union-Jenks documentary on VS yet??
Jason: I haven’t, but I’ve heard glowing things about it (mainly from you).
Robert: That’s right. All it did was confirm my belief in Union. No kicker is better than Tress Way and RB Jeremy Smith is too young to be soooo good.
Jason: Yes, but you must not know the history of the Backyard Brawl. Typically, the winner of the regular season game loses in the playoffs. And considering how close the Week 2 game was, how can you be so sure that Union will win? They had to come back from a decent-sized deficit to even force overtime.
Robert: Because Kirk Fridrich has that Union arrogance working again. Union was still finding itself in week 2, still wanting to know if it was officially back. There’s no doubt in their heads now. Brandon Rogers wants to end with one more W over Mark Ginther
Jason: I don’t buy that Union was still “finding itself” in Week 2. The Redskins had just gone to your homestate and clobbered Canton McKinley, I think Union was just fine.
Robert: Fair enough, biggest threat to either one of them??
Jason: As if there is one. Just kidding. I picked Muskogee to beat both of these teams during the regular season. Now, I won’t be doing that again, but I still think the Roughers present the biggest challenge to the two powers. They are enormously talented. Also, don’t forget what happened the day before Muskogee’s loss to Union — their coach hit a kid on a bike. That might have caused them to lose a little focus. And I think there are some fine teams on the west side of the state, but no one is beating either of them. What do you think?
Robert: I’m riding with the Timberwolves of Norman North. Beau Blankenship is a BEAST. I know Muskogee got ‘em in Norman, but as I said in the comments, I think that loss taught them so much about their own potential. Plus, Norman North is your nemesis, you have to pick against them if the Wolves want a chance to win
Jason: Right. I picked against North a lot this year, and they proved me wrong every time. Then, when I picked them to beat Lawton, they lost. It was the same way as you and Shawnee.
Robert: Our boy Ryan Aber knows a lot about this high school stuff. When he says stuff like he’s not sure Midwest City is the best team on the west side of the state, that’s got me questioning the Bombers. I want to believe at 10-0 that they’re a real force. Am I nuts??
Jason: Tim Flanders is great. I only got to see him play once against Moore, but I was extremely impressed. I just think it’s hard to say that MWC isn’t the best time on the West when they are the only unbeaten one. And I’ll give the Muskogee game to North, that’s an east side team, but losing to Lawton has me questioning the Timberwolves.
Robert: I think that was a case of not being able to handle success. NNorth was coming off knocking off Putnam City North and may have been too spent from that one. These are kids, they can’t get up for every game, which is why the HS and college game has been so entertaining this year
Jason: Well if the inability to handle success causes you to lose, that makes you not successful and not as good as a team that does handle success well; even if North is more talented.
