High school football: District A-2 preview

As a fullback last season, Hollis’ Carlos Herrera earned a spot on the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State football team with more than 1,100 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Now coach Reade Box is hoping Keegan Macias can duplicate that at the same position.

“He’s going to go from getting 10-12 carries a game to over 20 carries a game,” Box said. “He’s a freak athlete.”

Macias rushed for 976 yards and seven touchdowns last season as the Tigers went 14-0 and won the Class A championship.

Hollis returns seven starters on each side of the ball, and Box said the talent at skill positions will be big as some new offensive linemen adjust.

“We’re going to have speed back there, and those kids know our system,” he said. “They’re really confident in what we do and they believe in what we do.”

APACHE BUILT ON SPEED

Longtime Apache coach Larry McDaniel believes senior running back Jordan Littrell might be one of the fastest players to come from the Warriors’ program.

Littrell runs a 4.5 40-yard dash and presents a problem with his 6-foot-2, 205-pound frame for opposing defenses.

“He may have had one of the most impressive summers,” McDaniel said.

Littrell isn’t the only speed threat for Apache.

Senior Jalen Domebo is also an option along with a quick defense that will be big as Apache looks to edge Hollis in the district.

“Hollis runs real well themselves,” McDaniel said. “We’ve got to be able to compete with those guys, and you’ve got to be able to run with them. I think we can.”
