Shawnee (0-2) used the bye week to focus on the matchup with defending 5A champs Carl Albert (2-0). The Wolves will hit the road hoping to give the Titans their first loss of the young season.
Even though they're undefeated, Carl Albert's two games have been relatively close games. In week one they beat Midwest City 28-21 and last week they squeaked out an overtime victory over Del City, 32-31.
Starting running back/linebacker Tre'Juan Shaw returns to the lineup after missing the Guthrie contest with a sprained knee. His energy on both sides of the ball should provide an instant boost in productivity. Shaw was limited to 23 yards rushing in week one, but found the end zone on two occasions.
Carl Albert will be without starting tailback Dadrion Taylor who will miss a few more weeks with a knee injury.
Shawnee's passing game is led by Heath Hunter's 370 yards and and three touchdowns. He's also rushed for one touchdown. His weapons target, Trenton Skinner, is second in the area in receiving with 230 yards and two scores. The second option in the Shawnee passing game is Scout Cawvey with 67 yards.
In the loss to Guthrie, there were a few bright spots on a defense that gave up 42 points. Hudson Smith, a sophomore, recorded two sacks. Freshman defensive back Jaylon Orange had an interception that prevented Guthrie from scoring in the first half.
The last time Shawnee played Carl Albert was 2009 and the Wolves pulled out a 34-31 victory at home.
The Wolves and Titans will kickoff at 7 p.m.
