There's no mistaking what has carried the Tuttle Tigers through its first two wins of the season — defense and the running game.

After rolling to a 40-0 win over Plainview in the season opener, the Tigers piled up 318 rushing yards on just 35 attempts in a 44-0 win over Elk City last week.

Sophomore running back Morgan Neal had 13 carries for 165 yards and three touchdowns, while junior Jesse Gregory added 134 yards and a touchdown on nine carries.

The Tigers host Elgin on Friday night.

CHIEFTAINS SEARCHING FOR QB

Seminole is still looking for a quarterback to replace four-year starter Garrett Clark.

The Chieftains are using three quarterbacks as coach Mike Snyder searches for the right replacement.

“We're still trying to find the guy that we want to pull the trigger every down,” Snyder said. “We're just not quite there yet.”

Seminole lost valuable training time Friday when its game against Tecumseh was called before the first quarter could be completed. The Chieftains were just starting their second drive.
