Box: Leads Plainsmen To Finals

Box meets with media after the victory

Austin Box has helped keep Enid's championship dreams alive. After missing some games due to a dislocated elbow he has returned to the field with a vengence to lead the Plainsmen on an unexpected and convincing playoff run.

Austin Box, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound safety from Enid, Okla. had another huge night to lead the Plainsmen to a birth in the state championship game next Saturday.

The five-star prospect had a great game on both sides of the ball to lead Enid to a 35-14 victory over Owasso.

Offensively, he threw for 117 yards and a score and added an additional 87 yards and a score on the ground.

Defensively, he intercepted two passes late in the fourth quarter to secure the victory. The first of the two interceptions he returned over 50 yards on a marvelous touchdown run to end the scoring.

"No one expected us to be here but us," Box said after the game. "We have to keep working hard and not turn the ball over near the goal line to win next weekend."

Box has given an oral commitment to sign with Oklahoma. Enid will face Jenks in the title game.
