Carl Albert: Ground-and-pound Titans...
By Robert Przybylo
The faces have changed, but the formula hasn’t for Carl Albert. It was an impressive performance for the Titans to go into Ardmore and handle the Tigers like they did.
But I was more impressed with the play of junior Dillan Dansby. He had a rough season opener, but those problems were fixed in Week 2. The combo of Dansby and Kenton Whittington running the ball gashed the Ardmore defense time and time again.
Both rushed for more than 100 yards and each scored at least a touchdown. Being physical vs. Ardmore is one thing, doing it against Duncan is going to be the real key.
The Demons, still smarting after the Guthrie thumping, responded with 56 points against Noble. Now for the second time in three weeks, Jim Holloway’s club has a chance to make a big statement.
And this time it’s at home.
Duncan’s strength is obviously its line with the Dylans, Dismuke and Laurens, but I think Carl Albert can match up with them there.
Either way, Friday night’s battle combined with Thursday’s Booker T. and Tulsa East Central contest should help us sort who the class of 5A is heading into district play.
