Pauls Valley, OK, Pauls Valley Democrat

Back on the road for PV — Editors note: Pauls Valley head coach Bill Green was attending a funeral during the coaches’ interviews. Assistant coach Chad Chronister filled in for the coach.

Pauls Valley and Lone Grove have had some epic battles over the years. A few blowouts by both sides but for the most part have been great games.

“We’ve had some strange games down there,” coach Chronister said. “A lot of different things have happened over the years.”

Lone Grove in a young team but are very explosive. After an opening day loss to Marlow, the Longhorns have won four straight with an offense that has been scoring 50-points per game.

“They are a very talented group of young guys,” Chronister said. “They run a very simple scheme on offense but it’s very complex too.

“They are really good upfront. They are not very big but are very athletic.”

Quarterback Grant Harman and tailback Jeremy Lewis lead the Horns.

“Harman and Lewis mesh real well in the backfield,” Chronister said. “They make the offense go.”

Lewis had rushed for over 150 yards in each of the first two district games. had had 152 against Atoka in a half and 156 against Sulphur. Harman had 82 yards passing last week and 80 the week before. He also had 135 yards rushing against Sulphur to help them to the win.

The Horns have a trio of tall receivers that make Harman’s job easier when Lone Grove does pass. Tanner Vernon seems to be Harman’s favorite target so far this year.

The Lone Grove defense is equally as tough as they have given up just 16 points per game the last four including a shut out last week.

The Horns had a punt return and an interception return for touchdowns against Atoka.

“They are multiple on defense,” Chronister said. “They base out of a 3-5-3 but will roll up into a four-man front.

“They move around all the time trying to create mismatches.”

Dillon Wilson is the anchor of the defense up front at nose guard. Terry Rowe and Nathan Meeks are players that make a lot of plays for the Horns on defense.

Pauls Valley played their best game last week and gave themselves a chance to win late. A lot of the success came because PV kept Dickson’s offense off the field.

“We have to string together first down’s and keep their offense off the field,” Chronister said. “They have big play capability each time they touch the football.”
