Guide to Class 5A No. 5 Deer Creek at Class 4A No. 20 Piedmont

When: 7 p.m., Friday

Where: Piedmont

Players to watch: Deer Creek — Caden Sander, QB/S. This will be the first game in a long time without Joel Blumenthal at quarterback. Early reports have the Antlers barely missing a beat offensively, but it’ll be interesting to see Sander perform in a real game.

Piedmont — Darrius Burris, RB. The senior running back has trimmed down in the offseason, but only played in one scrimmage due to an illness. He figures to carry the ball a lot for the Wildcats.

Storylines: Deer Creek — The Antlers look almost like an entirely new team, but appear nearly as strong as last season. What kind of start they get off to will be key.

Piedmont — The Wildcats were hammered last season by Deer Creek. Can they matchup this season after a tough preseason slate with Kingfisher and Guthrie.

The pick: Deer Creek 42, Piedmont 21
