At 4-2 overall, the Redskins are unbeaten in three district games, though the road gets tougher with games against Douglass and Ada still ahead.

Junior quarterback Joseph Wood, who missed last season with a torn ACL, has been the biggest key to the turnaround. He was 18-of-28 for 289 yards Friday, throwing for a touchdown and rushing for two more.

“He's been a huge difference for us,” Cardin said. “He's a special athlete and he's making plays.”

This week, McLoud hosts Mannford, which snapped its winless streak with a 14-7 win over Harrah on Friday. One more win would virtually assure a playoff spot.

PAULS VALLEY HOT IN DISTRICT

After starting the season 0-3, Pauls Valley is now 3-3 but more importantly, 3-0 in District 3A-4.

The Panthers' 10-7 win over Lone Grove on Friday night puts them atop of the district standings with Madill as the only unbeaten teams.

“We are thrilled where we are sitting right now,” Pauls Valley coach John Inman said.

Changing the defensive scheme has been the biggest reason for Pauls Valley's resurgence, he said.

Pauls Valley started the season using only three down lineman but has gone to a 4-2 alignment.

“We have played much better since,” Inman said. “It fits our personnel a lot better. We are not incredibly big up front. We were a little undersized and that fourth body has helped us.”
