/> "I think a lot of guys know what the formula is but aren’t willing to stick with it when the going gets tough,” Young said.

Sticking with a plan doesn’t mean never changing. This season, the McGuinness offense switched from its traditional under-center, I-formation to a spread.

"You have to be willing to adapt your kids,” Young said. "This is not the professional level where you get to draft people to fit your system.”

McGuinness started this season 0-2, the first time that’s happened at the Oklahoma City school since 1999. Changes were made. The Irish have won 11 consecutive games going into Saturday’s state championship game.
