Five minutes with PC-Hunter's David Kerr and Laverne's Tim Allen
Undefeated and ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the state, Class B powers Laverne and PC-Hunter play for the first time since Laverne’s title win over the Panthers last season, so we asked both coaches a few quick questions about the big day.
Longhorns improved for the long haul?
It’s been a while, but Chisholm football, sitting third in 2A-1 and a win away from clinching its first playoff berth since 2002, has been here before.
The problem’s been staying.
Charles Clardy is probably bigger than you
Pioneer’s 6-foot-6, 230-pound defensive and tight end is just bigger than everyone else. Not just on the Mustangs’ roster, but pretty much everyone he lines up against.
Money, it’s gotta be the … hair?
The shaved sides. The bleached Mohawk. The look hiding under the Longhorns’ helmets, one that also has caught on in Kingfisher and Hennessey, among others, started at Chisholm with with junior receiver Austin Swann.
What to watch for this week
Face it. We're spoiled. This week, we have a shot at a sixth straight shutout, two top-10 matchups and a chance to prove wrong early-season doubters, all on a short turnaround on the Oklahoma prep football scene.
Longhorns' passing game showing growth
The hour-or-so bus ride home from Hennessey was a quiet one for Taggart Brown.
No. 11 Chisholm at No. 5 Hennessey: Some history
Just to set the scene: Chisholm is 4-0, with a win in 2A-1 already under its belt, and entering a second district match against contender Hennessey.
So, just like Friday’s 6 p.m. tilt between No. 11 Chisholm (4-0, 1-0) and the No. 5 Eagles (3-1, 0-0), but this was in 2003.
Coach: Old-guard Eagles won’t overlook upstart Chisholm
Before Chisholm was 4-0, and even before the Longhorns’ 5-5 2012 season, district 2A-1 rival coach Rick Luetjen, a 1978 Enid grad and long since Chisholm follower, has seen this coming.
