The Jags, though, are not intimidated. They’ve lost two games all season, to Nos. 1 and 4, Jenks and Broken Arrow.
“We’ve played great offenses all year long,” Ross said. “We’re the West-side team that went over to the East side and battled every one of them. My guys are accustomed to playing these type of kids. One of the things we hang our hat on is running to the stinking ball. I know it sounds vanilla and cliché, but we hang our hat on it.”
Westmoore is allowing only 94 ground yards per outing. Even more impressive is opponents’ 2.8 yards per attempt average.
Warren is averaging more then 10 yards per carry.
Outside linebacker Denver Beebe, who leads the Jaguars with eight sacks and is second on the team with 112 tackles, said the key to stopping potent offenses is to make them hurt.
“We’re small, but effective,” Beebe said. “We are going to come and hit you as hard as possible. We want you to fold. That’s what we want. It usually happens when our offense is making good plays and we are hurting the other offense.”
Westmoore slowed both Jenks and Broken Arrow, yet lost. Those defeats and the prospect of getting a rematch is added fuel to the Jags’ already fiery disposition.
“Our personality is angry,” Tilley said. “We want to prove something. We’ve always heard that Lawton has the best chance on the West side to beat those East-side teams. We take that kind of personal. We want to take it to them and we want another chance at Jenks.”
