Sophomore quarterback Kyle Duke rushed for 101 yards and completed seven of 11 passes for 150 yards. Junior running back Dorien Jackson stepped in after starter Tino Vann rolled his ankle early in the game.
“Dorien jumped right in there,” Roof said. “I was really proud of the way he stepped up.”
MUSTANG 3-0 FOR FIRST TIME SINCE 2008
With Friday's 36-14 win over Stillwater, Mustang improved to 3-0 for the first time since 2008, when the Broncos finished 12-1.
“It means a lot,” said junior receiver Colton Hadlock. “We were actually talking about it last week. We were thinking about the last time Mustang was 3-0. We're gonna continue to feed on it and get better.”
The perfect non-district mark also means Mustang has already matched last season's win total. The Broncos were 3-7 in 2011, the only season without a playoff berth since Ty Prestidge became head coach in 2006.
“Each week, we're learning from our mistakes and getting better as we go,” said junior quarterback Frankie Edwards, who has thrown for nearly 900 yards of total offense. He has thrown for nine touchdowns so far without an interception.
MEMORIAL LOOKING FOR BALANCE
Sophomore sensation Warren Wand started at quarterback for Edmond Memorial against Deer Creek on Thursday night, but he likely will return to running back for the Bulldogs' contest Friday night at Lawton.
Wand started the season opener against Edmond North at quarterback but didn't complete a pass. He was moved to running back for week two's game against Enid as Stillwater transfer Tyler Holcomb, the better passer, took over the signal-calling duties.
Holcomb, however, sprained his ankle against Enid, and Wand had to finish the game at quarterback.
Wand rushed for 207 yards on 21 carries against Deer Creek but only was 2 of 8 passing for 19 yards and two interceptions. Edmond Memorial coach Justin Merideth said Holcomb should be healthy enough to return at quarterback against Lawton so Wand can move back to running back.
“Any offense that is more balanced is a lot harder to stop,” Merideth said. “Tyler helps us to be more balanced.”
