made a good throw, and Chris Scott made an even better catch, for a touchdown in the Highlanders' 9-6 win over Mustang.

“Nobody gives more effort between the lines than (Warner), in practice and in games,” Lawton MacArthur coach Brett Manning said. “We're fortunate to have him and I think he's due for another really good year.”

Davis was solid as usual, causing havoc from his defensive end position and helping the offense as a tight end and fullback, though the Timberwolves were unable to score in a game against Altus that ended 0-0.

Gatewood has meshed well with his new team since moving in from Millwood. A 2,000-yard rusher for the Falcons last year, the 5-foot-9, 175-pound senior is starting at cornerback and part of a three-man rotation at running back with Raymond Demby and sophomore Brian Payne.

“He's a better kid than anything,” coach Lance Manning said. “He just wants to fulfill a role, whatever that role we have for him. He's a versatile player and he's doing a wonderful job.”
