;

1. Millwood (10-2)

New coach Darwin Franklin stepped into a great situation, taking over perhaps the most talented team in the class.


2. Davis (14-1)

Several starters return from last season's runner-up team, including leading tackler Braden Ruth.

3. OCS (14-1)

The Saints are still loaded after winning the title last season, but replacing graduated QB Austin Brooks will be key.

4. Vian (13-1)

QB/LB Rylee Simon returns with experienced lineman after falling short of a title last season despite crazy offensive numbers.

5. Hennessey (10-3)

Coach Rick Luetjen isn't going to shy from the running game, even with senior Dylan Hatchel under center.

6. Stroud (11-2)

Tigers are leaning on new starters Marc Gooch at QB and Alex Boodt at running back.

7. Frederick (13-1)

New coach Graham Snelding is implementing a new offense one year after the Bombers' offense was nearly unstoppable.

8. Commerce (11-2)

Team leader DC Chance returns in the backfield after rushing for 1,452 yards last season as the Tigers look to make another playoff run.

9. Alva (8-4)

The duo of QB Ty Hooper and WR Riley Hess will be tough to stop, and the linebacker duo of Cade Pfleider and Joby Allen will be tough to miss.

10. Adair (12-1)

The Warriors return five starters on the offensive line after a deep playoff run last season.

11. Nowata (9-3)

Defensive lineman Skyler Wood anchors a stingy defense that helped the Ironmen win nine games last season after a winless 2011.

12. Washington (8-4)

Dual-threat QB Brock Harmon has eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark in both passing and rushing the past two seasons.

13. Okemah (10-2)

The Panthers look to dominate up front with all five offensive lineman returning alongside tight end Colby Shandy.

14. Kansas (9-3)

Young team has set high goals, and the veteran guidance of senior linebacker Casey Ambrister will only help along the way.

15. Hartshorne (7-4)

Miners are looking for their sixth straight trip to the playoffs.

16. Lindsay (8-4)

Longtime assistant John Inman takes over a squad hoping the return of Zevan Schmidt from injury will aid another playoff run.

17. Meeker (7-5)

Ten starters return, including quarterback Jake Standlee and running back Dallas Jackson.

19. Christian Heritage (5-6)

Senior QB Colton Lindsey leads the way as the Crusaders look to maneuver through a tough district.

20. Lexington (7-3)

The Bulldogs return nine starters on each side of the ball, but coach Jeff Hall is concerned with depth behind them.

21. Dibble (4-6)

Tazden Jevons is often the best player on the field, and the Demons should benefit from that.

22. Haskell (7-4)

Four-year starting quarterback Alex Wheeland headlines a solid group of high-powered offensive players.

23. Hinton (6-4)

Quarterback Jacob Spady is receiving a lot of state college interest, and for good reason as he's coming off a stellar junior season.
