High school football: Staff picks for the top games of Week 3

Two crazy weeks of football have The Oklahoman staffers in a fight for their lives around the .500 mark. Maybe Week 3 will prove to be a little more predictable. But probably not. Here’s how we see the top 10 games going:

Scott
Broken Arrow 44, Tulsa Union 38
Jenks 38, Owasso 24
Kingfisher 35, Hennessey 28
Westmoore 37, Norman North 34
Fox 58, Alex 50
Midwest City 28, Del City 27
Davis 29, Heritage Hall 28
Wetumka 50, Davenport 44
Rejoice Christian 44, Coyle 36
McAlester 42, Claremore 35

Lock of the week: McAlester over Claremore. After blowing a lead in last week’s loss to Tulsa Washington, the Buffs will be looking to redeem themselves on the field Friday night. Claremore is a solid team, worthy of a top-10 spot in Class 5A. But McAlester, with blossoming star Dalton Wood at QB, is a legit title contender.

Jacob
Broken Arrow 35, Tulsa Union 28
Jenks 31, Owasso 21
Kingfisher 28, Hennessey 24
Norman North 35, Westmoore 34
Fox 48, Alex 40
Midwest City 21, Del City 20
Davis 28, Heritage Hall 23
Davenport 56, Wetumka 48
Rejoice Christian 40, Coyle 38
McAlester 35, Claremore 27

Lock of the week: Broken Arrow over Tulsa Union. The Redskins nearly upset Jenks last week, but Broken Arrow finally enters this game as the more talented team. Last week’s win against Bentonville, Ark., was just an example of how good the Tigers are this season.

Trent
Tulsa Union 38, Broken Arrow 35
Jenks 24, Owasso 14
Kingfisher 28, Hennessey 20
Westmoore 42, Norman North 35
Fox 47, Alex 41
Midwest City 27, Del City 20
Davis 34, Heritage Hall 28
Wetumka 55, Davenport 47
Rejoice Christian 36, Coyle 30
McAlester 35, Claremore 31

Lock of the week: Westmoore over Norman North. Led by quarterback Bryson Lee and running back Kieron Hardrick, the Westmoore offense should have no problem putting up points against an inexperienced Timberwovles defense. David Cornwell will be tough to stop, but look for a stout Jaguars defense to come up with a key stop to seal the win.

Overall standings
Trent: 11-9 (Locks: 2-0)
Scott: 11-9 (Locks: 2-0)
Jacob: 10-10 (Locks: 2-0)
