ATOKA, Okla. (KTEN) - The Atoka Wampus Cats have shown consistency, making the playoffs in four consecutive seasons.

"We've got guys that have been playing in this since seventh, six grade," said Atoka head coach Jacob Cupp. "I mean the kids know what to do."

Unfortunately for Atoka, they have been bounced in the first round of the playoffs four consecutive years.

"I think we just have to beat one more team and get a better seed and not play the team that's going to win state this year," said senior running back Tallen Barrett. "I think we're going to win a couple games."

Atoka is a team that plays old school football, lining up in I-formations and using fullbacks. They wont stray from that but this year it might come with a twist.

"We're really athletic and I think we're going to still be able to do what we need to do running the ball and I think we may be able to throw the ball a little more than we have in the past," said Cupp.

They will have to replace a big senior class that included Oklahoma State's Andrew McCall and UCO's Tyrell Hill but the younger Wampus Cats are eager to leave their mark.

"All the underclassman who didn't really have to play before have to step up and really have to fill those roles," said senior linebacker Patryck Brooks.
