Mac-LHS set to settle city title again
The past 10 city championships have been won by either MacArthur or Lawton High.
And it appears it will be 11, with MacArthur taking care of Eisenhower last week and the Highlanders squaring off with the Wolverines at 7 p.m. tonight at Cameron Stadium.
The two schools have been the dominant programs in the city for the better part of a decade, with each making two trips to the state championship game since 2011. And while the Highlanders have the only state championship in that time period, the Wolverines hold a slight 6-4 advantage over the past 10 clashes.
But the past is history. In the present, the teams appear to be similarly built, especially if the results from each team’s opener is any indication. Each team used its talented skill players to put up stellar offensive numbers in season-opening wins. And all signals point toward another offensive fireworks display tonight.
Lawton High coach Ryan Breeze said his team will need to be on its toes when it comes to defending Mac, particularly quarterback Racer Felter. Felter, who threw for 300+ yards and five touchdowns in last week’s win over Eisenhower, presents issues for the defense, both with his arm and legs.
Mac’s trio of Aeron Woodson, Nasir Kemper and Montez Edwards accounted for all of the Highlanders’ receiving yards in the win over Ike. And with each scoring a touchdown of at least 45 yards in length, the triumvirate proved their speed makes MacArthur a threat to score from just about anywhere on the field.
