Area boys teams show potential




The Outlaws came into the season with plenty of optimism despite losing several of their key players from last season. So far, they have lived up their lofty expectations, building a 5-2 record.

Marlow has also proven to be a clutch team. Five of its games have been decided by single digits. Four of them were won by Marlow, including three decided by three points or fewer.

Senior Jackson Huddleston has stepped up and shouldered much of the load, as has junior Wes Coast.



After experiencing only modest success last season, the Central High Bronchos are in the process of taking a big step forward.

The Bronchos are 7-2 with their two losses being decided by a combined nine points. Their wins, meanwhile, have all been decided by at least 13 points.

Thanks in part to a tremendous start to the season by senior Dallin Ferrin, who sat out last season as a transfer year, the offense has been on a tear, averaging 67.5 points per game, and breaking 70 points in their last four games.

Central High heads into the break riding a five-game win streak.


Things started well for the Bulldogs (3-7), who started the year with back-to-back wins before spiraling into the break as they dropped seven of their next eight.

While the defense has been solid for the most part, Empire has struggled to produce points, cracking 50 only twice this year.

The team, though, still has plenty of confidence as it heads into the break, knowing they are still working out the kinks in a new system.

“We definitely have things to build on and plenty of things to work on over Christmas break,” Empire coach Ryan Green said.


The first potion of the season is sometimes referred to by coaches and players as the “preseason.” A warm-up of sorts before the real action begins. That may be the best way for the Donkey’s (0-9) to view it this year.

Bray-Doyle has struggled to keep up with its opponents in the early part of the season, falling by an average of more than 30 points a game.

The Donkey’s though, have one last chance to right the ship before heading into the break as they take on a winless Rush Springs (0-7) squad on Friday.

Coming out of the break, Bray-Doyle will take on an always tough Velma-Alma squad before playing in the Black Diamond Tournament.
