STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Eb Trevino ran for 110 yards and Aaron Brewer ran for another 114 as Jenks beat Putnam City North 38-28 Friday night to capture its sixth straight Class 6A Oklahoma high school football championship.

The Trojans (13-0) built a 31-7 lead, then survived a rally by Putnam City (13-1).

The Panthers pulled within 31-28 in the third quarter after Matt Nation intercepted a pass from Jenks quarterback Keith Jones and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown.

Putnam City marched to the Jenks 25 early in the fourth quarter, but Jenks' Zach Edwards broke up a fourth-and-4 pass to end the drive.

On the ensuing possession, Jones hit Garrett Mills for a 54-yard gain, then found Edwards for a 35-yard TD that sealed the win.

Jarred Brejcha intercepted Putnam City quarterback Matt Warren on the game's second play. Jones then hit Mills for a 12-yard TD less than three minutes into the game.

Warren was intercepted again, this time by Jason Carter, who took it 20 yards for a TD to put Jenks up 14-0.

North pulled within 14-7 on a 47-yard TD pass from Warren to Brandon Bruner. Jenks' Aaron Bruner answered on the next play from scrimmage, scoring on an 80-yard run.

Warren finished 18 of 41 for 245 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions. He finished the season with 3,585 yards passing, a single-season state record. Warren's 41 touchdown passes also tied a state record.

Jenks extended its playoff winning streak to 24 games and its overall winning streak to 38, the fourth-longest in Oklahoma history.

The Trojans' six consecutive titles is one shy of the state record set by Morrison, which won seven consecutive Class B titles from 1988 to 1994.
