It was a great couple of weekend in Oklahoma as the state crowned its football champions. Sooners Illustrated was able to see multiple games in person, but here’s a quick recap of how it all went down.
Class 6A I
Jenks 35, Broken Arrow 14
Once again it’s the Trojans. The fourth year in a row for Jenks. Quarterback Cooper Nunley was sensational one more time, while running back Reuben Thompson saved his best performance for his last one. It was 16-14 at halftime before Jenks overpowered the Tigers in the second half to earn another gold ball.
Class 6A II
Bixby 38, Sand Springs 28
Welcome back, Nic Roller. When Roller was healthy, there was no better team in 6A II than the Spartans. Roller proved it again on this night, scoring four touchdowns and trying to make his case for why more schools should look in his direction. Bixby trailed 28-24 before scoring the final 14 points to earn another state championship.
Altus 31, Collinsville 28
Arguably the best game of the season. Altus running back Taven Birdow was sensational, rushing for more than 170 yards and three touchdowns. OU commit Levi Draper had a great day, totaling double-digit tackles and a huge interception. Back and forth throughout the second half, game ended on a 40-yard field goal by Gabe Barton as time expired.
Wagoner 15, Oologah 14
It was 14-0 Oologah before Wagoner’s 2018 wide receiver stud Nikia Jones took over. He is certainly going to be another major 2018 prospect for everybody to keep tabs on. Jones had both of the touchdown receptions, and Wagoner converted a two-point conversion on its first touchdown to separate itself.
Heritage Hall 38, Lincoln Christian 14
It has been Terrell “Tank” Love and Tevin McDaniel all season for the Chargers, and it was one more time. Love rushed for more than 200 yards and three touchdowns, while McDaniel had a 65-yard touchdown run and made life tough for the high-powered Lincoln Christian offense, led by Boise State commit Micah Wilson.
Adair 70, Haskell 6
Stratford 67, Cashion 28
Davenport 26, Keota 14
Shattuck 60, Coyle 14
