Quoteboard: Class 5A champion Guthrie's players talk about their title
STILLWATER — Guthrie won its third Class 5A state championship Friday with a 24-7 win over Lawton MacArthur at Boone Pickens Stadium.
Given everything that has gone on in the last month, the Bluejays felt quite vindicated by Friday’s win. Here are some leftover quotes that didn’t make it into my story.
SENIOR LB LANDRY CHAPPELL
“I’m just glad that we got the chance to show off what we can do. We didn’t cheat, and I’m just glad we got the opportunity.
“It feels good to win. We still wish we had Clint (Simek) out there with us, but we did it for him and coach (Rafe) Watkins.”
SENIOR LB JOHN CLARK
“We just played with all our hearts because we had so much to play for.
“I believe that we deserve it, regardless of whatever the press and everybody else says.”
SENIOR RB LUKE DAVIS
“There’s never been a feeling like this. Everyone says that you have these types of feelings when a baby is born or when you get married; of course I haven’t done any of those things. It just feels like we’re on top of the world.
“It’s extra special. People doubted us. They called us cheaters, but we responded to that. We used that as motivation.”
