Week 7: What we learned in Tulsa area...
Week 7 was lacking in major upsets on the east side of the state, so we’ll start with a general theme I noticed on Friday:
1. Running backs – for top-tier programs, at least – are dispensable: Jenks played without All-State tailback Zack Langer. The Trojans plugged in Alex Ross, who rushed for three touchdowns on their first three possessions in a 63-9 win over Sapulpa.
Broken Arrow’s Richie Fruechting left with a possible concussion against Southmoore. The Tigers just threw in Cameron Wrenn, who rushed for 174 yards and scored four touchdowns.
BA, Jenks and Union all have dominant offensive lines. That’s why they’re at the top every year and can cycle skill players in and out.
That was on display this week.
2. Don’t count out Bixby: The Spartans trailed 16-0 in the second half against Enid and were without two key playmakers, Michael Nelson and Austin White. Somehow Bixby came back with a 27-yard touchdown pass from Jake Schnarre to Garrett Thomas to earn a 20-19 win.
