OL Lemaefe Galea'i and Euless Trinity scored 21 unanswered points in the 2nd half to cruise to a 42-21 win over Mansfield Timberview.
CB Juwan Offray and DT Joyan Williams helped Karr to an easy 55-7 victory over Crowley
LB Justin Phillips had a solid game defensively racking up 9 tackles, one pass breakup, and his first interception of the year as Pearland beat Fort Bend 39-15.
CB Dylan Harding came up with a big 60 yard pick-six in the first quarter of Jenks' 14-0 victory over Midwest City.
WR Chris Lacy recorded 3 catches for 31 yards as Desoto escaped with a 34-30 win over Coppell.
DE Cole Walterscheid filled the stat sheet with 3 tackles, a forced fumble, two quarterback pressures and a sack. Cole also caught 2 touchdowns for Muenster in a 37-12 win over Wink.
Oklahoma State had over 40 recruits attend Saturday's huge win over Baylor, including current commits Gyasi Akem, Devon Thomas, and Dylan Harding as well as prospects Trey Carter and Steven Parker. According to Scout, Carter is being recruiting heavily by many schools, but OSU is considered to be on his short list along with Mississippi State and Miami. Steven Parker is considered by many as the best prospects left in the state of Oklahoma that has yet to commit to a school. Hopefully the electric atmosphere and outstanding performance by the Cowboys will help entice both Carter and Parker to choose OSU as their college home.
