Moore: District play brings new hope...
By Justin Hite
After scoring only 30 total points in three losses to start the season, it would be strange to think that Scott Myers is invigorated and happy. But with the Moore War behind him and the start of the district schedule coming Friday in Choctaw, Myers is. And there’s reason to be.
“Starting the district, that’s the refreshing time for us,” Myers said. “Everybody is back even again and that’s the big thing that every school in the state is talking about.”
Moore is playing better now than it has in nearly three years. Myers said the Lions have learned a lot from the Moore War and the game against Norman. The Lions were in their first two games until the very end and learned they could compete with Southmoore — ranked sixth.
“We could play with them, but we’ve got to have that tenacity of staying with a good football team for 48 minutes or the outcome ends up being similar to what we saw. For about the first 24 minutes, we matched up with them,” Myers said. “… We’ve gone a little bit further from where we were, but definitely not where we need to be to be a playoff-caliber football team. That’s where we want to be.”
This week the Lions will get left tackle Van Gray back to full health. Gray struggled through a short week of practice leading up to Moore’s lost to Southmoore because of an injury, but will have a full week to prepare for the Lions’ first district game.
