Sooners Go Big in District
Another week and another mass of big performances for the Future Sooners. Whether it was offensive linemen helping their offenses to big games on the ground or defenders scoring touchdowns there was plenty to see in week five. However, this week's MVP put up a big performance in a key district battle that put his team in the driver's seat for a district title as they eye even bigger things.
The Skinny: Anderson and his Reedy teammates took a tough loss in district play falling 35-31 to Frisco. They massively outgained the Raccoons, including 221-yards rushing, but lost the turnover battle and thus the game.
Next Week: Reedy (3-2) is traveling to Frisco Memorial on Friday.
The Skinny: Arinze and his Webster Groves went back to back in the win column downing Ritenour 48-7. On the night Arinze had 10 tackles and two sacks.
Next Week: Webster Groves (2-3) is traveling to Parkway Central on Friday.
The Skinny: Another week another massive win for Conyers and his Greyhound teammates. This time downing Highland Park 50-6. Conyers had another huge night with X touchdowns passes (10, 10, 40, 45, 10) as well as three two-point conversions. He also had two rushing touchdowns (55, 1) and kicked two extra points.
Next Week: Gruver (4-1) is traveling to Wheeler on Friday.
The Skinny: Cooper and his Covington came up just short against Ponchatoula 20-14. Cooper had 10 tackles and a field goal block return for touchdown.

The Skinny: Darby and his Consolidated teammates got a key district win over a primary rival for the title, Huntsville, 24-14. Darby had 115-yards rushing and a pair of touchdowns (23, 61). He went off with an injury but there is belief it won't be too serious.
Next Week: Consolidated (4-0) is hosting Montgomery on Friday.
WEEK 5 MVP
The Skinny: Graham and his Central teammates ran into the buzzsaw that is Denton Guyer and fell 49-10. On the night Graham was one of the few bright spots with 13-receptions for 77-yards. The Chargers were in the game until the late third quarter when Guyer went on a 34-point run.
Next Week: Central (3-1) is traveling to Trophy Club Byron Nelson on Friday.
The Skinny: Harrison and his Carroll teammates saw their three-game winning streak come to an end with a 27-16 loss to Bishop McNamara.

The Skinny: McGowan and his Poteet teammates had the week off.
Next Week: Poteet (1-3) is traveling to Sherman on Friday.

Next Week: Williams Field (4-2) is hosting Gilbert on Friday.

Next Week: National Christian Academy (5-0) is traveling to Oakdale (Conn.) St. Thomas More on Sat., Oct. 5.
