This week’s Ford Game of the Week is a 6A-I District 1 matchup between the Jenks Trojans and Westmoore Jaguars – Thursday, November 5 at 7:00 pm CT.
Trojans Contending for Another 6A-I State Title
It seems to be an annual event – the Jenks Trojans contending for yet another district title and 6A-I state championship. The Trojans head into the final regular-season game with a 6-1 record overall and undefeated in 6A-I district 1. They are ranked #2 in the Class 6AI top 10 and #4 in the state of Oklahoma. Jenks needs a win and an Edmond Santa Fe loss at Norman to capture the district title.
The only blemish on the Jenks season is a hard-fought 42-35 loss to Bixby, the two-time defending 6A II champion and #1 ranked team in Oklahoma. They’ve taken care of business against Springdale Har-Ber, Arkansas (31-15), Union (28-0), Broken Arrow (38-30), Norman (42-13), Yukon (38-7), and most recently Edmond Memorial (48-6).
In Friday’s game, the Jenks defense limited Edmond Memorial to 158 total yards of offense, and the Trojan offense racked up 371 yards on offense.

Jaguars Looking to Upset Jenks and Improve Playoff Position
It’s been an up and down year for the Westmoore Jaguars. Overall, they sit at 5-3 on the season and 3-2 in district play. They are ranked as the #8 team in 6A-I. Westmoore can finish anywhere from third to fifth in the district.
The Jaguars opened the season with at 27-20 loss to Midwest City before winning two straight against Moore (30-14) and Southmoore (34-27). Then came their most disappointing game of the season – a 64-19 thrashing from Edmond Santa Fe on the Ford Game of the Week. Instead of letting that game get them down, the Jaguars would come back and reel off three straight wins against Enid (45-27), Norman 39-35, and Edmond Memorial (28-27).
Last week, Westmoore suffered a heartbreaking 31-28 defeat to Yukon. They hope to bounce back this week and improve their playoff seeding against one of the top teams in the state.
Players to Watch – Jenks
Senior QB – Stephen Kittleman (5’11″/175 lbs)
He may not be the flashiest guy, but all Stephen Kittleman does is win football games. Besides leading his team to an impressive 6-1 record, you can count on Kittleman to put up solid stats and avoid costly mistakes. Against Yukon in week 8, Kittleman was 8-10 passing for 143 yards and two touchdowns. Last week against Edmond Memorial, he threw for an efficient 12-18 completions for 190 yards.
Through seven games, Kittleman is completing 69% of his passes (92/133) with 1,427 passing yards and 17 touchdowns.
An absolute stud of a young man and football player. I’m biased, but he’s the best QB in Oklahoma. Drew Brees 2.0 https://t.co/F5TjJEneON

Senior Running Back – Grant Lohr (6’1″/190 lbs)
Grant Lohr is one of the best all-around athletes in the state. He can hurt opposing offense’s running and catching the ball. Grant Lohr has 750 rushing yards and 13 TDs so far this season. Last week against Edmond Memorial, Lohr only played one half but still racked up 86 yards rushing and three touchdowns.
Senior Wide Receiver – Jayden Patrick (5’11″/170 lbs)
Jayden Patrick leads a talented group of receivers for the Trojans. He has 17 catches for 396 yards and seven touchdowns. In this year’s Backyard Bowl, Patrick contributed on all sides of the ball with a touchdown catch, touchdown pass, and an interception on defense.
Senior 3-star senior OT – Logan Nobles (6’7″/280 lbs)
Logan Nobles anchors a solid Trojan offensive line. Back in June, he committed to play college ball at Oklahoma State.

Players to Watch – Westmoore
Senior quarterback – Dayton Wolfe (6’0″/200 lbs)
The Jaguars offense is led by senior QB Dayton Wolfe. On the season, Wolfe is 177-of-291 for 2,256 yards and 23 TDs. In several games, Wolfe has put up some gaudy numbers – 321 yards/4 TD’s (Southmoore) and 427 yards/3 TD’s (Edmond Memorial).

Senior offensive tackle – Garret Humann (6’5″/300 lbs)
Protecting Wolfe and anchoring the Westmoore offensive line is 6’5″/300 lb senior OT Garret Humann. He’s received offers from several schools including Eastern Illinois, Lamar and Central Arkansas.
Someone has to catch all those balls from Wolfe, and so far this season it’s been the junior tandem of Kevion Willams and Ethan Lawrence. Williams has 34 catches for 525 yards/5 TDs and Lawrence has contributed 30 receptions for 445 yards/7 TDs.
Very fast and talented junior WR prospect to watch for In Westmoore’s Kevion Williams. Looks to be a must see junior and a 🔥’22 WR prospect with speed and good hands. https://t.co/OO5b2Rg7n2
