EDMOND — Luke Frankfurt knew it was going to be a good night after his second touchdown run Friday.

Really, the first touchdown should have been the sign.

Frankfurt, Oklahoma Christian School's star running back, broke loose for a 53-yard TD run untouched on the Saints' first offensive play against then-No. 8 Chisholm, igniting a 35-7 upset in the first round of the Class 2A playoffs and one of his best performances this season.

“I was expecting a big game out of everybody, but I wanted to have a big game like that,” Frankfurt said. “After the second one I was like, ‘We're starting to string it together, I'm just having huge holes and this is going to be a fun game.'”

Frankfurt finished with four touchdowns on a night the Saints went nearly exclusively with the run game, earning The Oklahoman's staff pick for Player of the Week.

“He lives and eats and breathes it,” OCS coach Derek Turner said. “He just wants to play football, that's all he wants to do. He really understands the leverage of the game and angles; he's just got a real feel for the game.”

Over the past three games, Frankfurt has totaled 10 touchdowns, showing he's quietly becoming healthy after dealing with a hamstring issue for most of the season.
