Scott's Lock: Cash in on Cashion

I finally got the bounce-back win that I needed in my Locks of the Week with Tulsa East Central edging Coweta last week, so that inspired me to go back out on a limb this week.

The Cashion-Watonga game is the exception in what is otherwise a really bad scheduling hang-up. The seven-team districts that are now the norm in Class A-3A have created a scheduling mess for many coaches, and it has put non-district games each week of the season.

In most cases, teams are left to scramble for an opponent they wouldn’t otherwise play, forcing some odd — and in some cases very ugly — matchups. But this one is gold.

It’s regionally convenient, something of a rivalry, and pits two good teams against each other. Couldn’t be better, given the circumstances.

I’m picking Cashion, because I like what Jeremy Seaton does at QB, and he has some weapons around him. He was very impressive when I saw him over the summer in 7-on-7, reaching the small-school finals at hte Oklahoma Showdown.

Watonga is no slouch, so I expect this to be a good game — Cashion 34, Watonga 30.
