Stillwater and Choctaw will square off this Friday in a meeting that will likely have big playoff implications in Class 6A Division II. Choctaw is also in search of its first victory against Stillwater since 2014.
The Ford Game of the Week will be broadcast live on Yurview Oklahoma for customers of Cox Communications and will also stream live on Yurview.com.
Re-Emerging as Contenders
Two years ago, Stillwater won just five games on its way to a 5-6 record. This season has been a completely different story, as Stillwater has begun the year 5-0.
No team has really challenged Stillwater either. They have won their five games by an average margin of nearly 28 points.
Choctaw hasn’t made the Class 6A Division II playoffs the last two seasons, but they have begun 2018 with a 3-2 record. Last week, Choctaw routed Putnam City, 49-7.
An upset victory at home against Stillwater would immensely help Choctaw’s playoff chances.
Players to Watch
QB Gunnar Gundy – Stillwater
The junior signal caller is off to a fantastic start this season. In the first four games, he averaged about 226 passing yards per game while throwing 10 touchdowns and just one interception.
RB Blake Muse – Choctaw
On only 15 attempts, Muse had a terrific performance in Week 2, gaining 253 yards and scoring three touchdowns versus Eisenhower. He almost averaged 17 yards per carry in the game.
Choctaw possesses a very talented backfield with junior Deysean Moore and sophomore Corey Williams, but Muse is the leader of the group.
RB Qwontrel Walker – Stillwater
Gundy has led the way for the Stillwater offense, but last week, it was Walker who shined the most. He scored three touchdowns in the 31-13 victory against Midwest City.
