Plainview chasing another district title
PLAINVIEW, Okla. (KTEN) - Madill and Kingston might have moved out of district two in class 3A, but it's still jam packed with our Texoma teams including tough competitors like Lone Grove, Pauls Valley, and Sulphur. This year they added a few more to make it even more challenging.
"I think everybody on there expect for one or two teams had a winning record last year," said head coach Joe Price. "You've got a team that was in the state championship last year, a traditional powerhouse in Heritage Hall. You've got three other teams in there that have been in the state championship in the last four or five years."
It might not be the same team as last year for the Indians, but head coach Joe Price and the players are confident in the guys filling in.
"We've got about five starters back on both sides of the ball. Our receiver group is really really good. We've obviously got Morgan Pearson there as one of the top 10 players in the state of Oklahoma. He's ready to have a great season," said Price.
"Our running back position neither one of those guys have played much for us, but I feel like both of them are prime to have a good year, a breakout year."
"I feel like we're not going to be as well rounded of a team as we were last year, but the guys we got coming in some guys we got coming up as freshman and sophomores, they're going to be a big role this year," said senior wide receiver Morgan Pearson.
This senior class is ready to lead their team to another district championship with a good spot going into the playoffs.
"I think we had a solid season last year. I know our seniors guys really gave it their all and everything," said senior right tackle Dru Naylor. "I think coming off of last season this year the seniors my class really needs to step up."
"We've just got to make sure we stay healthy through those first couple games of the playoffs. Then after you get through those first couple then anybody can beat anybody at that point," said Price.
The team opens up their season on the road vs Pilot Point on September 2nd.
