Scott's Lock: Taking the High(lander) road
Like the Boneman, I prefer not to lock a game that’s an easy call. If Jenks is playing the East Cupcake JV, I know Jenks will win, but I wouldn’t cheapen the value of my lock by picking that game. It’s like playing a game of Madden against the computer, when you’re the Indy Colts and the computer is some pathetic team like the Bears. Sure, you won, but is anybody impressed?
I had Midwest City as my lock of the week last Friday, which I actually expected to be a little closer than it was. And I’m expecting yet another close game with my lock this week.
I think Lawton is one of 6A’s best teams. But I think Lawton MacArthur is better. I was very impressed with the Highlanders’ performance at Mustang’s Pigskin Preview two Thursdays ago, with quarterback Dylan Warner and a plethora of talented offensive options.
Rashaud Foreman said he hopes the ankle is healed up enough for him to play this week, and that only adds to the strong group of receivers and backs Warner has at his disposal. They seem like a confident team ready to make a run at the Class 5A title.
Lawton, led by QB Cody Miller, also has some offensive firepower, with the likes of Tyrequek Zimmerman at wideout. They’ll be around late into November as well, but this week, I’ll take the Highlanders in a thriller.
