State Heisman winners named

Muldrow's Dawson Floyd and Mooreland's Kayla Wilson were named as state winners of the Wendy's High School Heisman Award. Floyd is a baseball and football player. Wilson runs track and plays basketball and softball.

Floyd and Wilson will now be considered for the national award. Twelve national finalists from among the state winners will compete for the national award on Dec. 7 in New York City.

The finalists will be featured during a televised ceremony on an ESPN network and will receive gold medals and $2,000 awards for their high schools.

The male and female national winners will each receive a crystal trophy, a $500 Wendy's gift card and a donation from Wendy's for $10,000 for their high school.

The winners will be recognized during ESPN2's Heisman Trophy presentation broadcast Dec. 8.

DEFENSE KEY FOR STAR SPENCER

When you play good defense in the playoffs, you're never out of a game, and that's the mindset Star Spencer has to take into Friday's game at Madill in the first round of the Class 3A postseason.

Madill, a program known for churning out top-notch running backs in recent years, has scored 40 points or more in seven games this season.

But on the other hand, Star Spencer held seven of 10 opponents to 17 points or fewer, a list that includes No. 1 Kingfisher and traditional power Heritage Hall.

Anchored by four-year starting linebacker Kenneth Davis, the Bobcats will need their stout defense to keep the game within reach as they try to win in their first playoff appearance since winning the 2009 4A state championship.
