Class A Rankings: Ringling, Wynnewood top preseason rankings

by Scott Wright Published: August 25, 2013

1. Ringling (13-1)

The Blue Devils no longer have RB Jackson Dillon, but they still have Taner Richardson.

2. Wynnewood (13-1)

With 14 returning starters, Wynnewood has a chance to quickly overtake Ringling as the No. 1 team.

3. Thomas (11-1)

The Terriers lost 15 seniors, but their talent is deep.

4. Texhoma (12-1)

Loaded again after last year's district title and quarterfinal appearance.

5. Kiefer (11-1)

Two words: Trey Sneed. Two more: Really fast. The 5-foot-6 running back rushed for 1,012 yards and 13 touchdowns on only 118 carries last year.

6. Hollis (9-2)

DB Khalil Johnson leads the team from the defensive side of the ball.

7. Cashion (13-1)

Expect to hear a lot of “QB Matt Harman to WR Joe Neece.”

8. Wayne (11-2)

RB Louden Johnson continues to wow the state.

9. Okeene (6-5)

With nine returning starters on each side of the ball, the Whippets just need to stay healthy.

10. Fairview (10-2)

The Yellowjackets are on the upswing with coach Chris Cayot.

11. Crescent (10-2)

RB Michael Cronister will break 3,000 career yards with a 1,000-plus rushing season.

12. Velma-Alma (8-4)

The Comets could have even greater success under Greg Gothard in his 16th season.

13. Talihina (11-2)

The Blue brothers will stop the left side of the field to protect QB Alan Lockhart.

14. Morrison (9-3)

Linebacker Jordan Quinata is only a sophomore, but he makes a serious impact for the Wildcats.

15. Rush Springs (4-6)

Colt Beard and the Redskins should make serious improvement from last season.

16. Minco (6-5)

Look for senior Jacob Overton to shine at wide receiver ... and quarterback ... and free safety.

17. Warner (11-1)

The Eagles had an undefeated regular season last year and remain near the top of Class A this year.

18. Apache (7-3)

The quickness and experience of the Warriors, along with an unselfish team-oriented attitude could lead them to a stellar season.

19. Afton (5-6)

Coach Zach Garner will try to get the team back to winning at least eight games like the team did in his first four seasons at the helm.

20. Watonga (6-5)

Defensive back D'Qwan Loneman is the difference.

21. Savanna (9-2)

Senior RB Christian Preston will try to keep scoring and leading.

22. Empire (7-4)

Team lacks depth but will likely contend for a district title with the help of its 10 seniors.

23. Wewoka (7-4)

Four-year starter and RB/LB Bryton Washington should continue to be the playmaker for coach Tommy Bare and the Tigers.
