Coach Tony Smith must develop a quarterback, but there are plenty of skilled players on offense, led by running back Robby Dryden. In his fourth year as a starter, the 5-foot-8, 175-pound senior has rushed for more than 3,000 yards in his career and is drawing recruiting interest from Baylor and Texas Tech.

Allen leads Demon defense

In a district like 3A-4, a strong defense will be valuable, and Perkins-Tryon coach Lloyd Wertman has a good group of linebackers to build his defense around.

Seniors Kenneth Allen and Hayden White, along with junior Justin Adkison, are three-year starters at linebacker.

Allen led the way with 137 tackles and two interceptions last season. The 6-foot-2, 240-pounder's recruiting interest ranges from Oklahoma, Tulsa and Arkansas to Central Oklahoma and South Dakota State.

Extra points

Bethel is in its first year under new coach Eddie Paul, a 35-year veteran with head coaching stops in Lindsay, Woodward, Velma-Alma and Plainview. ... A big offensive line will be opening holes for Bristow running back Leonard Fullbright, whose ability to make people miss could put him among the top runners in the class.
