Last Updated: October 3, 20233.1 min read

Pauls Valley vs Sulphur

They are a very good football team. Big, Fast and Physical. We will have to play very well to have a chance to win said Coach Dusty Raper

Lone Grove vs Plainview

They call it the five mile feud. We are big rivals so you can kinda throw stuff out. They are playing well right now. Have some good skill kids on both sides and size up front. Should be a hard fought game. It’s at home which should help. We had to move it to Thursday due to an official shortage said Coach Joe Price

Washington vs Crooked Oak

Crooked Oak will be our second district road game in three weeks. We need to build off of the momentum that we have built over the first half of the season said Coach Brad Beller.

Healdton vs Ringling

This week’s game against Ringling is going to be an opportunity for us to find out where we’re really at. They’re a well coached, discipline football team that plays hard and physical. We want to keep improving and laying a foundation for our program and this is a great challenge for us said Coach Dylan Terry.

Ada vs Madill

Madill has some good players and have played in several close games. Offensively they are very multiple and defensively they are swarming the ball said Coach Brad O’Steen.

Thackerville vs Maysville

Maysville is a MUST win game for us in order to keep the lead in the District, we have beaten them the last two years and we want to make it three. They have a really good QB that we must put pressure on, a really good receiver that can make you miss if the defense doesn’t break down and tackle. I feel like we have an offensive advantage over them, so we must do a great job of mixing up the run game and dads game to keep them off balance said Coach Mark Barrett.

Paoli vs Saskawa

They are a young fast team that will play hard for 4 quarters. Coach Snodgrass has them playing hard and fast. Spreading it out and slinging it around. Defensively they will always be moving and tackling well said Coach Vince Fulks.

Stratford vs Wynnewood

Wynnewood has battled some injuries, but they have some young athletic players & a couple of big tackles on both lines of scrimmage. It will be a tough challenge for us said Coach Michael Blackburn.

Caddo vs Wilson

They are a well coached team Joe has done a great job with them. They have been hit hard with graduation and transfers. He will have them ready to play and they have had some success in 8 man. Are keys are going to limit mistakes and try to be aggressive early. This is an important game to try and start 1-0 in district play. If we can control the line of scrimmage, be physical, tackle well that could help us.

Davis vs Kingston

This game will very much have district title implications, The Wolves held off a rally from Kingston last season 34-26 and it looks to be a good matchup once more as both squads are improved from a year ago.

Lexington vs Coalgate

This matchup will have playoff implications on the line, The winner of this game likely controls their destiny as Coalgate is currently in fourth but a Bulldogs win could propel them into fourth place.

Purcell vs Community Christian

This matchup features two teams on two different paths, Purcell will look to keep momentum after defeating rival Lindsay while Community Christian will look to regroup after a shutout at Washington last week, Look for the Dragons to grind out the Royals passing game on the ground with their rushing attack in the run game.
