Warriors to host highly rated Bulldogs — The Maysville Warriors continue their non-district schedule this week as they host the Minco Bulldogs. Minco is coming off a huge win over highly rated Wayne while Maysville is regrouping after a tough loss to Empire.

“Empire is 1-1 on the year but they are a top 10 rated team,” head coach Richard Norman said. “They got beat by class 2A Dibble then they dominated Wayne last week 43-0, which I think was a shocker to everyone.”

Minco has been a team that likes to spread the ball out and they tried to do that in week one against Dibble. Last week they lined the ball up and ran that ball at Wayne.

“I’m concerned with one guy,” Norman said. “It’s Jacob Overton. He is Mr. Everything. He will line up at quarterback, running back and even receiver. He’s a guy that we have to contain to have a chance to win the game.

“He’s a special kid, he’s the best we’ve seen this year. He’s also their best player on defense, he plays safety but he makes plays all over the field.”

Overton was named the Daily Oklahoman’s City Area Player of the Week after rushing for 168 yards and three touchdowns against Wayne. Overton was a receiver the past two season but was changed to quarterback in this his senior year to run the Bulldogs’ new zone-read option offense.

Minco was equally tough on defense last week holding the Wayne offense to 103 total yards.

“They are going to try and stop our run game on defense like they did to Wayne,” Norman said. “We’ve started to have some success running the ball especially with the stretch play and getting to the edge.

“I know they are going to be in a 4-4 defense they are going to have there outside linebackers sitting out there to stop us. They are both big about 6-4, 190 and they are going to try and defeat our blocks and keep us from getting to the edge.”

Maysville played solid for most of the game at Empire last week but an eight-minute stretch cost them in the end.

“We have to get to where we play 48 minutes every game,” Norman said. “Not 40, not 38, not 24 but 48 minutes every game. I think the kids are starting to buy into that. I’m greedy and I want it to happen now but I know it’s a work in progress and our kids are getting there.”
