As we head to the Oklahoma high school football playoffs with this week’s Ford Game of the Week featuring Norman North vs Broken Arrow (November 10, 7:00pm CT on Yurview Oklahoma and streaming live on Yurview.com), we look back at some memorable highlights and moments from the regular season.
Way back in September, Owasso played Union in just about the best football game you’ll see all season…at any level. Union prevailed 44-41 in double overtime in a game that had both sides showing unbelievable poise through the many different momentum shifts.

With so many great running backs in Oklahoma 6A, there were bound to be some show stopping runs. Perhaps none can top Broken Arrow’s Noah Cortes, who jaunted 77 yards for a score against Westmoore. Anytime a back goes airborne to hurdle a defender and takes it to the house, it makes for a pretty good highlight.
On the other hand, let’s not forget the pass throwers and catchers, as they’ve made plenty of plays on Yurview this fall as well. Just as Norman North needs to limit Cortes, Broken Arrow will need to contain Drake and Isaac Stoops, or they’ll make plays all night.
The Ford Game of the Week has seen its share of defense also. North Quarterback Ryan Peoples has been awesome throwing to his twin wideouts this season, but he shouldn’t get too reckless tossing the ball around the yard, as BA has Damian Everette in the defensive backfield. With a three interception game on his resume, he’ll be scoping for opportunities.
