High school football: Frankie Edwards leads Mustang to win over Stillwater

Frankie Edwards completed 21 of 31 passes for 203 yards and three touchdowns, and added 18 carries for 152 yards on the ground as the Broncos improved to 3-0 with a rout of the previously unbeaten Pioneers.

“Frankie is incredible,” said junior receiver Colton Hadlock, who caught Edwards' first touchdown pass of the game in the first quarter.

“He's probably underrated with his size (5-foot-10, 180 pounds), but I think he's the best quarterback in Oklahoma right now. There's a lot of great quarterbacks, but ... he's the best person in the weight room, works the hardest. He's just a great dude.”

The Broncos led 16-0 after the first quarter and 33-0 at halftime.

“We had a chip on our shoulder,” Edwards said. “We wanted to prove to everybody how good we are, especially after our season last year.

“We are the underdogs, and I like being the underdogs.”

Mustang won't be underdogs much longer, though; not after abusing the Pioneers, who despite losing several key players from last season were off to a surprising 2-0 start, with wins over traditional powers McAlester and Midwest City.

“They ran over us, and ran through us, and ran past us,” said Stillwater coach Tucker Barnard. “We couldn't stop anything.

“I don't care if you're inexperienced, or experienced, or young or old. If you can't stop them when they're running for six yards a pop, it's hard to be successful.”
