“Our offensive line played great. They were physical and held their blocks. They blocked perfectly.”
Minimizing mistakes has been one of the biggest differences in the Titans who were 1-5, and the team that will play for the gold ball next Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.
In the last meeting with McGuinness, Irish receiver Cody Chancellor had 359 receiving yards, running open all night. While the Irish were hurt by a few dropped passes Friday that limited them to 277 passing yards, Carl Albert also covered better and intercepted three passes.
Looking like a completely different team from two months ago, the Titans are ready for their shot at a state title — which would be the 11th in their school's illustrious history.
“Words can't explain what this opportunity means to us. I'm flabbergasted right now,” said Williams, who caught a 26-yard TD pass in addition to his kickoff return. “To be going 1-5 and winning seven straight, it means a whole lot to us. We gotta go work hard and win one more. That's what we gotta do.”
