High school football: Douglass running back Chris High wears out McLoud defense

High needs just nine carries to roll up 198 yards and four touchdowns. The Trojans remain unbeaten in district play.

“I feel like they've improved 100 percent, and by playoff time, they'll be up to 200 percent,” High said. “We're ready to go.”

McLoud quarterback Joseph Wood threw for 214 yards and a touchdown, but Douglass capitalized on the Redskins' mistakes.

The win moves Douglass to 5-0 in district play, tied for the 4A-2 lead with Ada, which trounced Harrah on Thursday. The Trojans host Harrah next week before a visit from Ada in Week 10, which will likely be for the district title.

After a rocky start to the season, Douglass appears to be climbing toward its peak.

“We hope we don't reach our peak until the first week of December,” Alexander said. “But our motto is to get better each week. That's what you hope for as a coach, and that's the growth that you seek.”
