TULSA, Oklahoma – High school football is inching closer, but fans in the Tulsa area didn't have to wait until September to start getting a sneak peek at their teams.

Several scrimmages took place on Friday night, including several teams who will surely be in the state title hunt once again.

Jenks and Booker T. Washington battled it out at Williams Stadium, and running back Alex Ross had a field day. The OU commit found the end zone multiple times with ease.

Sapulpa hosted a four-team round robin scrimmage along with Tulsa Central, Edison and NOAH. The scrimmage featured plenty of big plays, including a 40-yard touchdown place right on the money from Central quarterback Milton Harper.

Josh Hooks of Edison had one of the plays of the night with an impressive touchdown run as his team took on NOAH.

The Broken Arrow Tigers have some big shoes to fill with quarterback Archie Bradley recently signing for the big bucks as a pitcher for the Diamondbacks.

Quarterback Zack Mills looked solid in his place, hooking up with tight end Zac Veatch in the scrimmage for a score.

The first high school games take place Thursday, Sept. 1 with the majority of the first week action coming on Friday, Sept. 2.
