PRYOR, Okla. -

Pryor travels to Sapulpa tomorrow night for our Tulsa Tech game of the week, and the Tigers have been red hot losing just one game. 

"Hurry Up, Let’s Go”: four words but that pretty much sums up how Pryor has been playing this year.

Playing fast and keep the ball moving credit also goes to second-year head coach Kenny Davis, who has instilled the new style of play.

"He is just really enthusiastic and gets after us and lets us know when we aren't up to par and lets us know that we are doing good,” Pryor linebacker Brooks Miller said.

Pryor is running close to 80 plays a game. Davis feels that play calling has been an advantage to keep opposing teams on their toes and that’s no different for their match up against Sapulpa Friday night.

"The biggest thing is we are going to do things fast, no matter what that is,” Davis said. “We want to hustle wherever we are going, we want to play at a fast pace, that’s just kind of the culture in whatever we are doing."

Running more plays also gives Pryor the feeling that it’s ok if the previous didn't one didn't work.

"Just makes you feel really confident when you go out there,” Miller said. “If one doesn't work, you have 100 other ones and one of them will eventually."

The Tigers put up their 5A-4 undefeated record on the line against the Chieftains who have just one loss in the district.

"I think it’s going to take a real balanced game. I think we are going to have to play well defensively and we feel good about our match up offensively,” Davis said. “I think it’s going to be a fun game."

Tomorrow's showdown will be the first meeting between the two schools since 1979.
