On the game
Broken Arrow Head Coach David Alexander
"Getting an opportunity to get to beat him is more than I could have dreamt for in my second year, and I think we've got a team that's playing really well and we're going to get a chance to measure ourselves against a three-time state champion on Friday."
"We know that Jenks is going to fake a punt; they do it every year in the state championship game, and if they have an opportunity they're going to fake a field goal."
Broken Arrow Senior Offensive Lineman Rowdy Frederick
"As far as what I hear from people around town, it's, don't be another letdown, go out there and bring home one."
Jenks Head Coach Allan Trimble
"Selfishly speaking, I really hope they can pull it off, but we really enjoyed this senior class. They've got a lot of wins under their belt; we're really hoping they can pull it off."
Jenks quarterback Cooper Nunley
"I want it pretty bad, probably worse than anything I've ever wanted in my life. It means a lot to me and I know it means a lot to them too."
"Having been there three times in three years really makes it better and calms your nerves a little bit."
