1. Can anyone outside of District 5A-2 come away with the gold ball?

Carl Albert enters the season as the favorite to repeat based on recent history and the load of talent that returns. McAlester, though, may have something to say about that. The Buffaloes return nine starters on offense after making the semifinals last season. Also, watch out for perennial contenders Lawton MacArthur and Tulsa East Central.


2. Which player could have a breakout season?

Wide receiver seems to be a position that's low on stars in the class, but watch out for players like Guthrie's Donavan Jordan, Collinsville's TJ Johnson and McGuinness' Carl West to have big seasons. Early reports on all three are very good.

3. Will a team rise up and make the playoffs like Tulsa Memorial did last year or make an impressive push like Noble did last season?

Look for a team like Tulsa Central to make waves. The Braves have a new coach and will utilize the spread offense, which could be beneficial with a player like Tulsa commitment D'Angelo Brewer. The district also sets up well for Central.
