BROKEN ARROW, Okla. -

The high school football season is scheduled to start in two weeks.

Broken Arrow will host Bentonville West on August 29, on ESPN, which is an opportunity for running back Sanchez Banks.

Broken Arrow Head Coach David Alexander has been preaching to his players to "play like there’s no tomorrow.”

The senior Banks is using the nationally televised game against Bentonville West as an opportunity to put together a highlight tape to send off to college coaches.

"My coach just talked to me about that today, he was like, since we were playing on ESPN, this is your time to actually show what you got,” Banks said.

Banks hasn't received any college offers yet but understands that can change quickly.

"No matter what, a coach could be at a game and you might not know, so if you take every game seriously a coach could be there and see it so you have to take that seriously,” Banks said.

However, if football doesn't work out, Banks might have another calling, performing on a stage near you, as he warmed up his vocal chords.

Banks is hoping to cap his senior season with a gold ball, which would be the Tigers' first since 2018.

"State title for sure,” Banks said. “No matter what, I'm not going no less, I promise you we are going to win that game."
