“This is an unbelievable feeling. We started 1-5,” senior lineman Kyler Walker said. “The coaches did a great job of never letting us give up. We came together in Week 6 after that loss to Guthrie, and we told ourselves, ‘we're gonna keep working until we can't work no more.' And luckily, it came in Week 14. I love it.”
With quarterback Steven Thompson guiding the offense, and the defensive line controlling the game up front, Carl Albert took down 5A's No. 1 team.
“Our kids, they're a bunch of studs, I'm tellin' you,” Rose said. “We could've given up a long time ago, and they didn't, and I'm so proud of them.”
Carl Albert came into the season with 10 state championships, a product of building a strong, successful football program. The Titans have 11 now, because of the incredible effort of a group of kids, their coaches and their Midwest City community.
“If you asked me back at the beginning of the season, I never would have said we'd be here,” Walker said. “To do this for our school, for our community, for our family and especially for Coach Corley is an indescribable feeling. It's crazy.”
