McGowan Back on Top

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: After starting the season 0-3, Webster Groves got their third straight win downing Parkway Central 35-0. In what was a lopsided game Arinze may not have gotten the full game but made an impact with a sack, two tackles for loss, and a forced fumble.

Next Week: Webster Groves (3-3) is hosting St. Louis Lindbergh on Friday.
