Sequoyah-Tahlequah has long been a powerhouse in Class 2A and this year should be no different as the Indians return 28 seniors and 15 starters to a squad that went 10-2 and 6-1 in district play last season.
One of the primary keys to the Indians' season will be the play of freshman quarterback Brayden Scott. Scott may have a short time to adjust but he will have one of the state's top players protecting him while he does.
Senior OL/DL Chris Littlehead is the Indian's leader on both sides of the ball and Littlehead might be an insufficient last name for the 6-foot-4, 310 pounder. He has offers from more than a dozen Division I schools, including Big 12 members OSU, Baylor, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Kansas State.
