The response to my blog post (and subsequent newspaper story) on the 1954 high school football season has been very cool.

A few questions I’ve gotten in emails made me want to further research it. I found the Nov. 22, 1954 copy of the Daily Oklahoman, where the paper awarded what it called “mythical” state championships to teams in Classes A, B and C since there were no playoffs.

Here are the final Oklahoman rankings and records from the 1954 season for all three classes. The top-ranked team in each class was, obviously, the team the paper awarded the “mythical” state title.
