Scott's lock: It's in the Cards

When you’re 1-3, sometimes you just need a win to get you feeling positive again. I’m hoping that’s what Tulsa East Central can do for me this week.

I guess I should’ve listened to all those Tuttle fans who told me to lock Bridge Creek last Friday, but that’s hindsight now. Tulsa East Central appears to be among the elite group of five or six teams atop Class 5A that have distanced themselves from the rest of the pack.

I think Coweta is a good team, and I like what Bubba Burcham has done there, now in his third season. But I don’t know that they can pull this one off.

The Cardinals have too many offensive weapons. Receiver Dino Teague is averaging 19.3 yards per catch with five touchdowns, giving QB John McDavid a reliable target. RB Daunte Burge only gets about 15 carries per game, but he’s averaging 6.1 yards. Marcus Dees leads a solid defense, too.

We’ll see if I can get things turned around, or if I’m far more powerful than I thought and can change the fortune of teams simply by picking them to win.
