Anadarko senior running back R.J. Sink was last seen wearing a sling during last week's 18-15 win against Woodward.

Warriors coach Kent Jackson said it was just a stinger, and Sink will play Friday in a huge district game at Piedmont.

Sink rushed for 141 yards and two touchdowns last week, bringing his season totals to 1,174 yards and 21 touchdowns.

No. 1 Anadarko would seal a second straight District 4A-1 title with a win Friday and one win in the final two games against either Weatherford or Elgin.

But Jackson is making sure his team does not overlook the Wildcats, who upset then-No. 4 Clinton last week, 45-19.

“Piedmont can beat us, too,” Jackson said. “I've told the team that and they know it. They're good enough to beat us.”

WAYNE'S JOHNSON RETURNING TO FORM

Hopes were high in Wayne entering the season, but a Week 1 injury to running back Louden Johnson deflated the Bulldogs' excitement early.

Johnson rushed for more than 1,500 yards and 22 touchdowns a year ago, but in four games without him, Wayne managed only six total points.

Johnson returned from a torn plantar fascia in Week 6, but Wayne lost to Stratford, which likely crippled its playoff hopes. Johnson rushed for four touchdowns in last week's 44-19 win over Crossings Christian in a nondistrict game to improve to 2-5.

Of course, Johnson wasn't the only significant injury the Bulldogs faced during their five-game losing streak.

Two starting defensive ends, who also played tight end, were lost, and a starting linebacker will be out this week.

“We haven't had a game yet where we had all our starters,” coach Brandon Sharp said. “We've lost three tight ends, and in Class A, you don't have three tight ends to lose.
