4. HARRIS TIGHTROPE RUN (Week 2)
Kevin Harris had already scored three touchdowns for Central High, but with his team clinging to a 20-14 lead over Oklahoma Christian Academy late in the first half, the junior running back came up with one more. The speedster bounced a run to the outside, slipping past defenders until he reached the sideline, where the real magic began. Just inches away from the white line, Harris refused to go out, leaning into defenders as he tiptoed his way 42 yards for a touchdown with 1:20 left in the first half. “He just absorbed the hits and didn’t go out of bounds,” Central High coach Darren Lamar said. “That was pretty impressive to watch.” The score sent the Bronchos into the locker room with a 28-14 lead in a game they went on to win 40-30.
3. DILLON TWIGG 67-YARD TD RUN (Week 6)
Dillon Twigg all but put the game away on Empire’s second play of the third quarter against Healdton, with the Bulldogs clinging to a 15-7 lead. The sophomore running back took a handoff and raced free down the left boundary for 30 yards, then he spun away from one tackler and raced back toward the center of the field. There, he broke another tackle, raced all the way to the other side of the field, avoided several more would-be tacklers and finished his jaunt into the end zone. “Was that a great run or what?” Roberts said.
2. LYNN GAME-WINNING GRAB (Week 3)
Down one and facing fourth-and-15 with little more than 2 minutes remaining in the game, the Velma-Alma Comets sent the ball in Checotah Lynn’s direction and he delivered. The senior wide receiver adjusted mid-rout to and hauled in the slightly off-target throw before turning up field and running it in for a 30-yard touchdown to seal a 30-25 win over Elmore City-Pernell.
