Booker T. Washington and Lawton will meet in the first round of the 6A-II playoffs for our Tulsa Tech Game of the week.
The Wolverines have won two of the three meetings since the 6A split, but the road to a state title begins Friday for the Hornets.
With so much on the line, basic fundamentals have been the game plan heading into the matchup against Lawton.
"We are still teaching, we are still trying to take the right steps, throw the ball in the right place, read the right coverages,” Booker T. Washington Head Coach Jonathan Brown said. “It’s tedious work but it’s stuff I love doing being a coach."
Before last week's loss to Bixby in the regular season finale, the Hornets had won four straight games. Brown said he wants his team to get back to that level.
"I think the guys are fired up and ready to go,” Brown said. “They want to get back out here and show the public that we are a good team and make some plays."
The last time Booker T. Washington won a 6A-II State Championship, Jaden Brown was just a freshman. As this year is his final playoff run, he wants to make it a special one, not just for him, but for his head coach and father, Jonathan Brown.
"Winning a state championship for him that’s my goal,” Jaden said. “He has been training me since I was 1st grade, 2nd grade, always being hard on me."
