Maroon, yellow and white combined with the classic “C” logo.

Edmond North

A relatively newer school but the look, especially the blues, is already a classic, topped by the silver helmets with the pointed “N.”

Midwest City

The Raiders have the Silver and Black. Midwest City has the Gold and Black. The gold “M” on the helmets, simple gold lettering and, during the playoffs, gold shoes are a strong combination.

Putnam City North

Panthers paw on the side of the helmet, Cardinal red and yellow give the Panthers a simple, traditional look.

Best helmets


Lawton's Michigan-style black wings on a red helmet are unique in that they aren't given to everyone. The wings must be earned.


Not many teams use purple and the Knights do it as well as anybody, with a shield on a purple helmet.


Sure, it's basically a St. Louis redux, but the white Ram horns on red helmets are a striking combination.

Tulsa Washington

The Hornet logo on the side makes the helmet, but the black with orange face masks add plenty to the design as well.


The Bulldogs' whole uniform is superb, but its Alabama-style black helmets with white numbers on each side are a sharp topper.

Honorable mentions

Plenty of other uniforms from around the state also deserve mention:


Simple uniforms with the school's shield on a white helmet are a classy, traditional loo.


The Trojans easily could've been in the traditional category, best part is the “Trojans” name in lieu of names on the back of jersey.

Lawton MacArthur

The big, almost circle-shaped “M” with a Highlander on a yellow helmet is one of the best logos around.


Roughers wore blue Muskogee Manual throwbacks earlier this season vs. Westmoore.


All-red uniforms with blue helmets give the Saints a unique look.


The stark black-and-white look with the P/T shield on the helmets is sharp.

Putnam City West

Not many schools use Columbia blue and the Patriots use it well.

Tulsa Union

The Redskins have the iconic “U” logo but have tinkered with several additional jersey combinations this year.


The Tigers used the double-T until going back to a simple, plain white helmet with a single stripe a few years ago.


The Jaguars went to a matte black helmet this year and went to red numbers instead of white on their black jerseys.
