Santa Fe’s quarterback questionable

(Continued)

NORMAN —

The Panthers struggled to an 0-4 start, including the school’s first-ever loss to Putnam City West. But Putnam City North has turned it around in the past three weeks, putting together an impressive win over Midwest City along with convincing victories over Moore and U.S. Grant.

That leaves the Panthers at 3-1 in district play, and if they’re able to upset North they would force a three-way tie atop the district along with Edmond North.

All news positive for Warriors: There’s no doubt things are going right in Washington.

First, Brock Harmon was recognized as the official record-holder for most pick-sixes in a single game.

The feat, which he accomplished several weeks ago by returning three interceptions for touchdowns against Hinton, was officially recognized by the National Federation of State High School Associations last week.

Washington also has a true bye week waiting in the wings.

Due to Riverside dropping out of district play shortly before the beginning of the season, the Warriors have no Week 9 opponent. Because Riverside is technically still a part of the district even though it’s not competing, the game still exists on the schedule in the form of a bye rather than simply an off-week, as some unbalanced districts have. It’s a quirk that the Warriors are using to their advantage.

While Washington (6-1, 4-0) is more talented than its Week 8 opponent Mangum (1-6, 1-4), the temptation could be to look ahead. A Week 10 matchup with Lindsay (5-2, 4-0) looks to amount to a district championship, but because of the off-week the Warriors will have ample time to prepare for the game.

“It’s a district bye, so we won’t be playing anybody next week,” coach Brad Beller said. “We’ll have two full weeks to get healthy and get ready for Lindsay.”
