There is little doubt that Michael Harris is one of the top prep players in the state, and he proves it week in and week out. This week was no exception as he exploded for a ton of yards and touchdowns in the Washington Hornets victory, but Army All-American selections Austin Box and Gerald Jones gave him some stiff competition for the weekend's top performance.

Michael Harris, a 5-foot-10, 190-pound running back from Washington High rushed for 410 yards on 19 carries in last nights 62-28 victory over Sand Springs. He scored on runs of 75, 80, 56, and 65 yards and scored seven of his teams touchdowns.

Army All-American Gerald Jones, a 6-foot-1, 190-pund athlete from Millwood High in Oklahoma City, Okla., had a huge night before leaving on his first official visit to Texas Tech. Jones threw for 167 yards and four touchdowns, returned a punt for a touchdowns, and rushed for a 60 yards score.

It was a big weekend for Army All-American participants as Enid’s Austin Box also had a huge night in his teams 41-20 victory over Edmond North. Box threw for 223 yards and three touchdowns and added an additional 90 yards and and two scores on the ground.

Norman High duo Sam Tullius and Ryan Broyles combined for another huge night in their 42-7 victory over Yukon. Tullius had 287 yards if total offense and scored four touchdowns. Broyles added an additional 182 yards of offense and had a rushing touchdown.

K.J. Washingtom from Owasso had a nice game on the ground in helping the Rams knock off the Muskogee Roughers 17-14 in double overtime. Washington rushed for 132 yards and scored a touchdown in the contest.

Sallisaw’s Bubba Philpot kept up his torrid pace by rushing for 339 yards in a 25-41 loss to Idabel. Philpot has now rushed for over 2,600 yards this season.

Tulsa Union Junior Brandon Rogers, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound quarterback tossed for 141 yards and two scores in an easy victory over Stillwater Friday night.

East Central junior running back Kenneth Sessions scored five touchdowns in a 57-16 win over Tulsa Central.

McClain may have lost the game to the Bixby Spartans 14-52, but sophomore Shawn Jackson, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound running back proved why he will be one of the top recruits in the state in ’09. Jackson rushed for 274 yards and two touchdowns against a stout Bixby defense.
