ARKOMA â€” After last season's return to the Class C playoffs for the Arkoma Mustangs, senior quarterback Christian Davis wanted to make it back there once more. He got his wish as the Mustangs will entertain Covington-Douglas at 7:30 p.m. tonight in an opening-round Class C playoff game at Mustang Field.
â€śIt feels good to get back there again,â€ť he said. â€śIt's been fun, and I'm looking forward to (tonight) â€” I can't stop thinking about it. I have butterflies thinking about it â€” but in a good way.â€ť
ARKOMA â€” History has already been made by the 2011 Arkoma Mustangs football team as it has won nine games for the first time in school history. Now, tonight will have more history made.
The Mustangs (9-1), ranked eighth in Class C, will have their first-ever home playoff game in school history at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Mustang Field against the sixth-ranked Covington-Douglas Wildcats (8-2).
HEAVENER â€” At this time a year ago, the Heavener Wolves had checked in their football equipment since the 2010 season ended at Week 10. That's not the case this year.
The Wolves finished fourth in District 2A-6 to make the playoffs, which makes junior running back Blake Smittle a happy camper.
â€śIt feels good,â€ť Smittle said. â€śIt's the first time for me to be in the playoffs. It's a new experience for most of us. I'm excited for it. I'm ready.â€ť
