High school football: 6A-4 among state's toughest districts; Mustang the biggest surprise

WHAT TO WATCH FOR — With Southmoore, Mustang and Norman looking good in addition to Edmond Santa Fe and Lawton, District 6A-4 is looking especially formidable this season.

2. Kiefer

Most expected some drop off for Kiefer after last year's 11-2 season in Class B. But not only has Kiefer kept right on rolling, it's been even better. In wins over Afton, Liberty and Hulbert, Kiefer has yet to allow a point in outscoring its opponents 104-0.

3. Blanchard

It's not overly surprising that the Lions are 3-0, though with a startling slate that included Bethany, Lindsay and Newcastle it wouldn't have been shocking had the Lions been 1-2 or 0-3 at this point either. But with Brock Lamle leading the offense, Blanchard has outscored its opponents 118-28 going into this week's game at Little Axe.

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENTS

1. Midwest City

The reasons are easy to spot — starting QB going down to injury just before practice started, getting acclimated to a new coach, lots of talent graduated, tough nondistrict schedule — but the Bombers aren't used to 0-3 regardless. Midwest City hasn't lost three consecutive games since 2006 — also the last time they lost in district play. The Bombers take a 37-game district winning streak into Friday's game against Norman North.

2. McAlester

The Buffaloes' nondistrict schedule didn't look easy, but it certainly was manageable before the season. But McAlester is still searching for its first win after getting blown out by Stillwater, falling 28-17 to Tulsa Washington and falling in overtime to Claremore last week.
