Reviewing the highlight reel



Coming off a 1-9 season, the Marlow Outlaws were looking to make a statement in their first game of the season. Trey Coffman made that statement within the first minute. The bruising junior tailback got free in the open field and raced 76 yards for a touchdown to give Marlow a 6-0 lead over Lone Grove a mere 55 seconds into the game. It was the start of a dominant night for Marlow, which treated its fans to a 31-0 season-opening win.


TD RUN (Week 1)

It’s not often that one play can set the tone for the season, but that’s exactly what Kale Reed did for Comanche in its season opener. The Indians came out of halftime trailing rival Velma-Alma 18-8 before Reed ran for a touchdown and threw for another to put his team up 22-18. Then he sealed the win with one run, breaking free and going 53 yards for a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to make the lead 28-18. “He got us a big score on a big run and that kind of changed the momentum for us, and not just in that game,” Comanche coach Steve Justus said. “I think that run kind of setup everything that we have done to this point.” Reed tacked on one more touchdown run with 1:09 left, his fourth of the game, as the Indians beat Velma-Alma, 34-26.



Allen knew better than to kickoff to Austin Masoner, but even its cautious move backfired. With Waurika clinging to a 12-6 lead coming out of halftime, Mason went across the field to scoop up the opening kickoff of the second half, which was sent to the opposite side of the field as the running back. He turned upfield, broke one tackle and then followed his blockers for a 96-yard touchdown that gave the Eagles an 18-6 lead and helped seal the program’s first-ever win in eight-man football.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
