1. Seminole (2-0)
The Chieftains have allowed 7 points through two games and should have a similar performance against a Wewoka team that had their hands full with an Ada junior varsity squad last week. It will be interesting to see how the Chieftains running game will do without one of their featured backs in Jamon Dennis. Last week, Dennis went down with an apparent knee injury in the first half against Tecumseh.
2. Meeker (3-0)
Meeker continues to rely upon sophomore running back Caden Wolford who leads the area in rushing with 484 yards and six touchdowns. Quarterback Jacob Martin tossed his first touchdown pass of the season and has accumulated 344 yards through the air. Meeker's defense gets after the quarterback and has five sacks through three games. The Bulldogs held two opponents to under 10 points this season.
3. Shawnee (0-2)
Even though the Wolves struggled in their matchup with Guthrie, they showed a lot of promise in the overtime loss to Choctaw in week zero. With a week off and starting tailback Tre'Juan Shaw returning from a knee injury, Shawnee has all of their weapons available this week.
4. Maud (2-0)
The Tigers score, and they score often. With back-to-back 50-plus point outings, Maud appears to be firing on all cylinders and responding to coach Brant Hayes' system. First-year starting quarterback Lane Brooks upped his production in week two, throwing for over 200 yards. The defense constantly disrupts the opposing quarterback and gang tackles on every play.
5. Chandler (1-1)
One thing is certain about the Chandler Lions. Win or lose, they will smack you in the mouth. In the week one loss to Stroud, the team fought until the very end. With the win over Oklahoma Centennial two weeks ago, and the first in the Jack Gray era, Chandler proved they can not only win but win big.
6. McLoud (1-1)
The Redskins secured their first win of the season, narrowly beating Bethel 28-26 last week. Brandon Vinson caught his first touchdown of the season and should get more involved in the offense as the season progresses. Tyler Jones also caught his first touchdown against the Wildcats. With Coye Campbell a viable option for starting quarterback Koalton Keller, Rusty Hall should feel good about the offense this week.
7. Tecumseh (1-1)
Even though they were unable to score against Seminole, the Savages hung around until the very end. Coach Bullock has to feel pleased with his team's effort despite losing in week two. With two running backs capable of carving up defenses and an offensive line that rivals many colleges, Tecumseh should be in just about every game they play the rest of the way.
8. Prague (1-1)
The Brayden McGinnis show got rolling last week with a 200-plus yard performance and three scores. The passing game struggled through the first two weeks, but with Jake Schultz available to catch passes it's only a matter of time before the air attack starts clicking.
9. Bethel (0-2)
Coming off two loses by a combined five points, the Wildcats are not a team to take lightly. They have a good chance of picking up their first win of the season this week against Little Axe.
