“I thought we played really well for a half against Norman the first time,” Wilson said. “We were 0-2 at the time and weren't real sure if we were good enough to do this or not. “We are playing better football now. I'm sure Norman is better, but we are playing so much better than we were at the first of the season. It definitely gives us a chance to make some noise (in the playoffs).”
West finished Friday night with 21 carries for 146 yards but didn't play after the Millers' first possession of the third quarter.
Sanchez caught five balls and had 146 yards receiving as the Millers rolled up almost 600 yards of total offense on the Panthers' defense.
“He's awesome,” Wilson said. “Codey is a really good high school football player. I have been here eight years, he's the first guy to surpass 1,000 yards receiving, and we've thrown for a bunch of yards the past three years.
“He is a playmaker. I am definitely glad he is our uniform.”
Sanchez warned that other teams better not overlook the Millers in the playoffs.
“We feel we are going to go deep in the playoffs this year and maybe contend for a gold ball this year,” he said.
