When: 7 p.m., Friday
Where: Cameron Stadium
Radio: KTOK-AM 1000
Records: Deer Creek 6-4, 4-3 District 5A-2 (fourth); Lawton MacArthur 8-2, 6-1 District 5A-1 (first)
Players to watch: Deer Creek — Eli Hooks, DE. After totaling 12 sacks last season in 12 games, Hooks has equaled that in just 10 games. His speed and athleticism will be huge against an up-tempo team like the Highlanders.
Lawton MacArthur — Will Collins, QB. The Highlanders have a good history with quarterbacks, and Collins appears to be no different. The junior has completed 70 percent of his passes for 1,923 yards and 25 touchdowns.
Storylines: Deer Creek — The Antlers have been pushed around up front multiple times this season. MacArthur generally blocks well up front and that could be the difference.
Lawton MacArthur — The Highlanders’ defense needs to show up. They have played better since winning a 71-56 shootout with Duncan on Oct. 17, but there is still some concern with Deer Creek’s high-powered offense.
