The skill position talent in this game is just incredible to watch Holmes, Barre, and Ross going to work out there should turn this thing into a track meet. Don't misunderstand there is defensive talent on both squads but when you look at the big play abilities for both teams it's just hard not to think that explosive plays are going to come by the boatload. For years and years this game has been a spotlight for both schools to start showing off their new talent and that figures to be no different as Eddie will have to have a roster in hand to take account of several new names that just aren't known outside of their South Tulsa circles at this point.
This one has the look of an unmovable object against an irresistible force. Lawton's defensive talent stands up with just about any team in the state led by a defensive line of Ward, Diaz, and Dewitt that has the ability to flat out dominate. Meanwhile the Highlanders, led by Graham's powerful running, have a bevy of weapons offensively. As mentioned above these two always have more talent coming through the ranks and while Josh is only seeing one game this week the Thursday game he had planned to see, Lawton Eisenhower @ Altus, was abandoned due to Diquan Woodhosue tearing an ACL and Maurice Chandler transferring. Lucky for him Chandler is now at Lawton high and as one Wolverine coach said 'he is 6-foot-1, 180-pounds and he can run. He is going to be really good.'
