1. Defending champion Blanchard was ranked No. 20 last preseason. Could another sleeper sneak in and win it all this year?


 

It's possible. But it will be even more difficult this year, with more depth at the top of the class. Not only is Blanchard strong again, and motivated to defend its title, but powerhouse programs such as Kingfisher, Seminole and Tuttle are strong again. Heritage Hall is returning to form, and Victory Christian's young talent is gaining experience. Berryhill and Cushing have stars who can make them title contenders.

 

2. Which district will be the toughest in 3A?

Kingfisher and Heritage Hall make 3A-3 strong at the top, while Newcastle, Star Spencer and John Marshall will all be improved. The district that looks the scariest on paper is 3A-5. Berryhill, Metro Christian and Sequoyah-Claremore all have the talent to contend for the title.
