New Guy Steals the Show
This week's Future Sooners was a bit of an interesting breakdown with several Oklahoma commitments having the week off while a few others went on to really big days for their teams. But really it came down to an offensive lineman paving the way for a big win, a running back with a second straight huge performance and the new guy on the block as they fought for this week's MVP award.
The Skinny: Anderson and his Reedy teammates suffered a heart-breaking loss 20-19 to Lovejoy when the Leopards got a touchdown pass with just 10 seconds remaining. Reedy moved the ball but struggled on the ground with just 58-yards rushing.
Next Week: Reedy (4-2) is traveling to Denton Braswell on Thursday, October 17.
The Skinny: Webster Groves got their fourth straight win downing Lindbergh 37-35. Arinze had a relatively quiet night with three tackles and a pass break-up in the win.
Next Week: Webster Groves (4-3) has the week off.
The Skinny: Conyers and Gruver had the week off.
Next Week: Gruver (4-2) is traveling to Booker on Friday.

Next Week: Covington (3-3) is hosting Hammond on Friday.
The Skinny: A&M Consolidated put together a 41-7 win over previously undefeated Lamar Consolidated. Darby sat out for the second straight week with an ankle injury.

He had eight carries for 27 yards and two touchdowns (1,3) along with two catches for 55-yards including a 45-yard touchdown.

Next Week: Aledo (5- 1) is hosting Cleburne on Friday.
The Skinny: McGowan, for the second straight week, went off for the Pirates. McGowan averaged over 20 yards a carry with 188-yards rushing on just nine carries and four touchdowns (13, 3, 32, 62) in Poteet's 55-10 win over Texas high.

Next Week: Broken Arrow (5-1) is hosting Edmond Santa Fe on Thursday, October 17.

Next Week: Prince Avenue Christian (5-2) has the week off.
The Skinny: Walker and his McGuinness teammates downed Guymon 69-7. Playing some more defensive end in this one, Walker had four tackles for loss and a quarterback hurry on just 24 snaps of the blowout victory.

The Skinny: Washington and his King teammates got back on the winning track with a 30-13 win over Beaumont United.

The Skinny: West and Lamar just kept rolling with a 58-14 win over North Crowley in a game that was postponed from Friday night to Saturday at noon due to issues with the lighting at Cravens stadium. In a little over a half of work West had three catches for 65-yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Next Week: Lamar (5-1) is traveling to Ft. Worth Paschal on Friday.
The Skinny: Winfrey was expected to be back for Iowa Western's 20-3 win over Independence C.C. but if he was, he logged no stats. It seems more likely that he, for the third straight week, did not play.
Next Week: Iowa Western C.C. (4-3) is hosting Ephraim (Utah) Snow College on Sat., Oct. 19.
